Emily Petkewich (Education Director/Artistic Associate at Metro Theatre Company). Her fellowship supported two observerships to help her enhance Metro Theatre’s play development process and program. She visited Cornerstone Theatre and People’s Light and Theater Company to explore the questions: “What are the most effective processes for gathering and staging stories with people who have little to no performing experience,” “What structures do other companies create to sustain community involvement,” and “How can theater artists successfully create community among people with extremely divergent backgrounds?”
