Sets and props and costumes, oh my!! Just how many logistical planning and execution issues are there when a Broadway musical comes to the DuPont Theatre? Tractor trailers to unload. Musicians rehearsing in the lobby. Set construction, lighting design, and sound checks. Problems looking for solutions. And nowhere near enough time before the curtain rises on opening night. Come to our APICS Brandywine Valley Chapter Professional Development Meeting to get the behind-the-scenes scoop!
