In March 2017, the Eugene O’Neill Foundation hosted its 26th annual Spring Student Days. These free, one-day student workshops led by professional Bay Area actors, playwrights, directors, visual artists and photographers are often a next step up in a young person’s theatrical, literary or visual art career. Host-
ed by the Foundation and supported by NPS and grants from the Dean and Margaret Lesher and Wood Family foundations, the workshops take place in the dramatic rolling hills of Tao House.

Many thanks to the instructors who took part in Student Days for their dedication and enthusiasm in sharing their craft— Don Lacy, Amber Flame, Erin Edens, Evertis Wright and John Armitage, and kudos to all the students who participated, eager to challenge themselves in pursuit of their creative goals. Finally, our gratitude to the many volunteers who helped make this year’s event a success. For coverage of the event by the East Bay Times, including a video, go here.
