MIDDLEBURY COLLEGE STUDENTS Kendall Schilling, Phoebe Davis, Sajia Yaqouby, Kylie Crow and Cheryl Engmann worked with props designer and alum Noah Mease for the upcoming production of “Mr. Burns, a Post Electric Play” by Anne Washburn. Alex Draper is directing this performance that will take place in Wright Memorial Theater beginning May 5. Independent photo/Steve James
