I graduated from NC school of the arts in the summer of 79. Which put me about 5 years older than the author. I remember being there that day in 1969 when they planted that time capsule. I don’t remember it as being the opening of the theatre, which it very well may have been, but as an 8yrs old I was fascinated with the concept of how old I would be when it was opened. Strangely enough, I think that it was a 45yr capsule, because I think that the open date is 2014. Neither my older sister nor mother remembers the event as it held little interest for them, but for me it was a foundation stone. I live in California now and for the past 32 years, but I would gladly fly to Winston-Salem to view the opening if anyone will confirm its existence and open date which I remember being inscribed on a copper plaque.
