There’s a string of theater people at work at Rollins in the next few months, and an actual bevy of them here in the next couple of weeks. All of them will be interacting with students and with the public — and my experience has been with Rollins visitors in the past has been that if you possibly can make it to hear these people, you should. All of the public events are free.
Let’s start with this weekend and move onward:

Playwright Arlene Hutton, whose play Letters to Sala will be presented Feb. 11-19 at Annie Russell Theatre, is at Rollins this week in preparation for that production.
She’ll talk about her play, and about the process of adapting a work from the page to the stage, at 7 p.m. Wednesday night at Annie Russell Theatre. Hutton is here as part of a series sponsored by the Winter Park Institute, which will look at women in the Holocaust.

Julia Gagne at Valencia Community College tells me she has two or three spaces still open in a playwriting seminar to be offered Friday by Arlene Hutton, right, the award-winning playwright who wrote Last Train to Nibroc, See Rock City, Gulf View Drive and Letters to Sala, which will be produced at Annie Russell Theatre next season.
