Statement of Clarification

In our last edition of The Augur Bit, an article covered the construction of the pool for GDS’s production of Metamorphoses. In the article, we implied that chlorine treatments were used in order to prevent hypothermia, which is not the case. We also said that time ran short for the building of the pool, which was incorrect as well. Finally, we were wrong in saying that Director Laura Rosberg had to raise her initial budget for the show. According to Rosberg, the budget for the entire show was $15,450 and never changed throughout production. In fact, the performing arts department does not receive any money from the school and only bases their budget on the funds that they’ve collected from previous shows.

We apologize for the confusion caused by this article. Any further questions should be directed to Annalise Myre or Zach Blank.
