How Do They Do That? Behind the Scenes at the Alden — a program exploring how productions are put on at the Alden Theatre of the McLean Community Center — will be presented on Thursday, Jan. 12 at 6:30 p.m. at the center.

Did you ever wonder just what it takes to present a show at The Alden or how each season is put together or what all those things on the ceiling are? Join Technical Director Jennifer Garrett, Performing Arts Director Sarah Schallern Treff and Youth Theatre Programs Director Danielle Van Hook for an informal discussion that will take the mystery out of what goes on behind the curtain.

There is no charge. The community is invited.
