It’s a “day off” of sorts for Eve Lavitz ’21. Ordinarily, all of her classes are Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Tuesdays and Thursdays are meant for catching up on schoolwork. Today, what with the rain, Lavitz could spend the day indoors getting things done.
Instead, she goes out in the storm to a back room at William C. Buck Hall on North Third Street.
Lavitz is among the army of students painting, sanding, nailing, and gluing to prepare for The Drowsy Chaperone, the theater department’s fall musical. The show goes on in 10 days.
Lavitz, who wants to major in mechanical engineering, isn’t involved in the most glamorous element of the production. She’s painting doors propped on sawhorses. But she likes helping out. She did similar work for a local theater troupe back home.
