This past month, LMU’s Department of Theatre Arts and Dance presented their 6th annual production of Stages of AIDS, a theatre play honoring World AIDS Day. This year’s performance fundraiser involved a rather complicated audio setup for the live rock band and seven singers on stage, achieved with the help of members of SFTV’s Recording Arts Department (RECA): RECA Chair Dr. Mladen Milicevic, RECA Chief Engineer Dusk Bennett, and RECA students David Hansmann, Josh Bartell and Gavin Finn. The collaboration proved to be a success, as Stages of AIDS was performed in front of a full Strub Theatre and raised money for AIDS Project LA.
