This week WPVC’s Sunday Morning Wake-up Call host Sean McCord stands in for Rick Moore. In this episode, Sean talks with the University of Virginia’s Robert Chapel about his direction of “Our Town”.

Robert Chapel is professor of Drama and former chair (1990-2005) of the University of Virginia’s Department of Drama. He has been with the Heritage Theater since 1987, first as a stage director, then as managing and stage director and, since 1995, as its producing artistic director. Bob also chaired the Virginia 2020 Commission on the Fine and Performing Arts. In addition, he has served as executive director of the Virginia Film Festival. Bob is currently directing his last play at UVA before retiring, Thornton Wilder’s Our Town, which concludes with a 2:00 p.m. matinee today.
