Theatre Professor Knows All About 'Sweat' 
CSUSM Theatre Professor Judy Bauerlein has lived in Southern California for more than a decade, but she still has Pennsylvania in her bones. Bauerlein was born in Ambler, a northern suburb of Philadelphia, one of 11 children in a family that’s a hodgepodge of German, Irish, Italian and Dutch blood. Her grandfather was a machinist in a steel factory, an emblem of the industrial, working-class roots of the Rust Belt state. She has shed the traces of the distinctive Philly accent that she marinated in during her childhood, but it occasionally surfaces when she’s had a couple of Rolling Rocks and is watching her beloved Eagles. 

So when Bauerlein, a professional actress and a theater professor at Cal State San Marcos, first heard about “Sweat” – a Pulitzer Prize-winning Broadway play about a group of friends in the economically distressed town of Reading, Pa. – her curiosity was piqued immediately. And when she discovered that the play would be produced locally, by the downtown San Diego Repertory Theatre, she knew she had to be involved.   

** Also, head over to the San Diego Union Tribune's Art + Culture page to read the feature on the Pulitzer Prize-winning play, SWEAT.

Alumnus to Lead CSU Alumni Council
CHABSS Alum Jeremy Addis-Mills, 36, who graduated from Cal State San Marcos in 2007 with a degree in social sciences and women’s studies, was appointed in March to a top leadership position on the CSU alumni council. He will begin a two-year term as president-elect on July 1, to be followed by two years as president and two years as immediate past president  becoming the first CSUSM graduate to serve in all three posts. All are volunteer roles. 

'Boeing Boeing' Allows Student Actors to Grow
CHABSS Threatre Program collaborated with Jason Eberwein, a web developer in CSUSM’s Instructional & Information Technology Services department, to direct Boeing Boeing. Theatre department chair Judy Bauerlein brought him in as an assistant director for the New Play Festival in 2011, and he has been working with the theatre department in various capacities ever since. He’s now the co-faculty staff adviser for the newly created student theatre club.
