Jennifer Cavenaugh (left), professor and chair of the department of theatre arts and dance, interviewed playwright Arlene Hutton during the kick-off of the 2011 Winter Park Institute spring season. Hutton—the pen name for alumna Beth Lincks—is the author of Letters to Sala, The Nibroc Trilogy and As It Is in Heaven. Cavenaugh and Hutton entertained the audience with an enlightening discussion about the creative process of evolving text to script as it relates to her latest work, Letters to Sala, an adaptation from Ann Kirschner’s book, Sala’s Gift: My Mother’s Holocaust Story, which will be performed in the Annie Russell Theatre in February.
The Winter Park Institute spring season continues on Tuesday, January 18 with Terry Teachout, drama critic of The Wall Street Journal and the author of acclaimed biographies of Louis Armstrong, George Balanchine, and H. L. Mencken, with "Present at the Creation: Three Visits to a Creator's Workshop—Writing a Biography."  For more details on the Winter Park Institute’s spring lineup, please visit
