Several Emersonians are involved in the premiere of the play Academy Fight Song, which debuts at the Boston Center for the Arts on Thursday, September 10.

Academy Fight Song posterAcademy Fight Song was written by Performing Arts faculty member Andrew Clarke, is directed by faculty member Joe Antoun, produced by Guy Ben-Aharon ’12, and features Associate Professor Craig Mathers in a leading acting role.
