A public reception in the lobby will follow the presentation.

Middlebury Moth-Up producers Elissa Asch ’24.5 and Kristen Morgenstern ‘24 will host, with Mahaney Arts Center Technical Director Mark Christensen providing the musical interludes. This community-wide event is produced by the Middlebury Moth-Up in partnership with the Mahaney Arts Center and Director Liza Sacheli.
