Benefit performance for Entertainment Technology
students affected by Hurricane Sandy.
Thanks for supporting us at Prelude '12.
Working on The Service Road by Erin Courtney – a play that deals with a
violent storm – while in the midst of an actual violent storm has been a profound
and sobering experience. Certainly, it has deeply affected our understanding of the
text and our roles for this production.
Several of the students that have been important collaborators at The New York City
College of Technology, where we are artists in residence, have had immense personal
loss due to Hurricane Sandy. The homes of our assistant sound designer, Courtley
Dennis, and our props master, Laura Sollazzo (see below), were devastated by the
storm, to name just a few.
On Monday, January 14th we will hold a special Pay What You Will Benefit Performance. All proceeds will go to students
in the Entertainment Technology program that have been severely affected by the storm.
On a happier note, we wish to thank all of you who came out to support our recent
excerpt and talk back for the play at Prelude '12.
Your response was overwhelming. If you happened to miss it, don't worry –
tickets for all performances of the full production are on sale now via
Brown Paper Tickets. We open on Friday, January 11th at the Voorhees Theatre
in DUMBO, Brooklyn.

Meet One of Our Student Collaborators
“My name is Laura Sollazzo and I am a junior at NYC College of Technology.
I am interested in everything in live entertainment: sound, lighting, props, etc.
Upon graduating I hope to work in the entertainment industry painting, or running a
soundboard, or designing a light show. My classmates and I have been working very
hard on this show, doing what we love. I hope everyone enjoys The Service Road.”
