3. Fresh Voices: Performed by Anne Losq and Mariel Iezzoni
Friday and Saturday at 8 pm, Touchstone Theatre, 321 E. 4th St., Bethlehem
Original actor-created, ensemble-based works in progress.

See what this year’s class creates while training with the Touchstone Ensemble. Always fresh, sometimes provocative, never ordinary.
