The subject of this week's Take 5 on the Auburn University homepage is Tessa Carr, assistant professor in the Department of Theatre in the College of Liberal Arts. She is the artistic director for the Mosaic Theatre Company and says her position here is her dream job because it combines engaged community-based theatre work, and brought her back home. Carr recently received a Competitive Outreach Scholarship Grant that allowed Mosaic Theatre Company to travel to three Alabama communities: Anniston, Chatom and Collinsville.
