40 Years of Back à Dos
Celebrating 40 years of Back à Dos!
Forty years ago, in 1979-80, nudged by her daughter Margaret (then a student at the school), Martha Stookey directed a first show, which would become the foundation of a new theater program at French American + International. From this came additional productions, and then a few years later, a series of one acts, some in English some in French, performed “Back to Back”… Well, in keeping with our French American origins, they were performed “Back à Dos” (leading to the current name of our company).
In celebration of the 40th Anniversary, we invited students, faculty, and alumni to share memories and art, in the form of texts, poems and songs. Enjoy their tributes, memories, and artistic offerings!
