L-83 apprentices get ‘in on the act,’ build staircase for school play

APPRENTICES AT LOCAL 83 (Kansas City, Missouri) participated in the play “Eurydice” without ever setting foot on stage. Twenty apprentices, working in groups of five to eight, fabricated an elaborate staircase for the set of Olathe West High School’s fall play. Local 83’s BM-ST Scot Albertson said the 150-hour project was a real-life lesson in fabrication, because apprentices had to look at the drawing of the staircase, then build it.
