Chapter members gathered at the home of Judy Campell and Michael Henke for the NSAL Virginia/North Carolina Chapter's second meeting of the year on February 21, 2016, where they were treated to a splendid presentation by Robert Chapel, Professor of Drama and former chair of the University of Virginia's Drama Department. Bob will retire in May from UVA and, last summer, retired as the Producing Artistic Director of the renowned Heritage Summer Theatre Festival, hosted by the University of Virginia. His talk featured a look back at his 29 years of directing plays and musical theatre shows, well over 100 of them.
