  • Last week, the Yale Office of Undergraduate Production launched a new program that will give students the opportunity to formally mentor other undergraduates working on theatrical productions. The OUP created 8 work-study positions to recruit the “Undergraduate Production Peer Advisors,” whose areas of expertise range from lighting to scenic design, said Rorie Fitzsimons, the senior technical director of the OUP. The Peer Advisors will be available to assist any students who want to stage theater productions by holding weekly “office hours” at the OUP and providing their contact information for support at other times.
