Introducing Dig Deeper Wednesdays!

Greetings and Salutations! If we haven't met yet, my name is Cassandra Proball and I just joined Lyric Arts this past April as the new full-time Education Director.  One of the best parts of this job is acting as a kind of resident "dramaturg" - researching the productions to help deepen the theater experience for both the cast and our audiences.  I often discover lots of interesting information that won't fit into either our Audience Guides or the Dig Deeper section of the program, so I thought it would be fun to start a Dig Deeper Blog.

Every Wednesday I'll post a fun little fact about either a current or upcoming production like this....

Did you know that by 1959 Geo. A. Hormel & Co. produced 1 billion cans of SPAM®?   To find out more about how Hormel Foods grew from a small, turn-of-the-century Austin, MN company to being named one of the 400 Best Big Companies in America by Forbes Magazine, check out the company's timeline.

Next week:  more about a day in the life of the Hormel Girls!
