To get to the workshop meeting place on Saturday at 9:50 a.m.:

We meet at 9:50 on the sidewalk just below the Littlefield Fountain, south of the UT Tower. Find the long curb area in front of the fountain (the one with the figures riding horses) – below the South Mall, cattycorner from Dobie Mall. You can pull over to the curb with blinkers on and get out to talk with our staff. Wait for a UT Shakespeare helper to greet you and get your contact information. You’ll also need to sign a legal release and medical info form if you are NOT staying to observe or participate. If you want to stay, plan to find street parking west of Guadalupe Street at a meter (no coins needed on Saturday). At 10 a.m. we proceed up the hill 50 yards to the Parlin/Calhoun courtyard and Calhoun 100. IF YOU ARE LOST, CALL Mr. Stromberger’s CELL PHONE at 363-6864. Thanks!
