    How does one contact the blog to alert about CalArts alumni event information? Josh Chambers (MFA Directing 06) is directing “BIG BRO / lil bro”, a world premiere play at Company of Angels Theatre in Downtown Los Angeles. The cast includes another CalArts Alum, Vincent Tula (MFA Acting 07). The set and sound were designed by Jeff Teeter (BFA Scenic Design/Video 06) and lights were designed by Brandon Baker (BFA scheduled for 2010). I’m a company member, and I graduated 06 with MFA in Writing for Performance.

    Full details of the play are found here: http://www.companyofangelstheater.org/

    It would be awesome if you could post this.
