Lab Hours

You are required to assist in painting the scenery for Lysistrata. Only 10 hours are required. However, there may be opportunity to bank extra-credit hours to offset performing poorly on a project. If you opt to not finish a project or turn in an obviously underworked product, extra credit hours do not count at all.
