New theater partnership between Union and Proctors featured in Times Union

Publication Date

A new partnership between Union and Proctors gives students a chance to gain experience on the professional stage while providing the venerable historic theater with a pool of local actors.

“It’s a new link between us,” says Andrew Mannion, lecturer in scenic design. “Proctors is putting on a professional children’s theater piece and co-producing it with Union talent.”

The Proctors enterprise is called the PB&J Café, and the inaugural show is “Stuart Little,” the classic children’s tale by E.B. White about a mild-mannered mouse born into an ordinary New York family and trying to survive in a human world.

The show was recently featured in the Times Union.
