    InFocus OUTDOORS:  the HAYWAGON STAGE

    For the 2018-19 season, the Theatre Company is changing its format.  Instead of producing all of our projects in the Arena Theater, we are adding an outdoor performance venue:  the HAYWAGON STAGE.  A wide variety of events will happen at this new, temporary space:  concerts, performance art installations, social gatherings, micro-plays and more.  Many will POP-UP as a surprise!  All of the events—no matter the style or artistic medium—will deal with a central theme: the College’s annual IN-Focus theme, which for 2018-19 is “War, Peace-Building, and the Just Society.” Departments from across campus will be contributing to the activities on the HAYWAGON STAGE, so it is sure to be a diverse line-up of events.  And the stage itself—built on an old hay wagon—will be transforming over the course of the year. Be sure to stop by the HAYWAGON STAGE often.  You never know what might pop up!

    LOCATION: the academic quad, across from Reeves Library

    TIMES: TBA—check website moravian.edu/theatre for updates

    ALL HAYWAGON STAGE EVENTS ARE FREE
