Miss Hall's School

An all-girls boarding and college-prep day school in Pittsfield, Massachusetts has opened a new academic building and revamped its curriculum. It’s an effort to give girls opportunities in science and math, where women are largely underrepresented.

WAM Theatre is currently presenting a limited run remount of the company’s very successful 2013 production of Emilie: La Marquise Du Châtelet Defends Her Life Tonight, written by Lauren Gunderson and directed by WAM Artistic Director Kristen van Ginhoven.
