An article in last week’s issue about Marilee Marchese was updated to say that Marchese’s last show designing costumes was for the Mount Desert Island High School Drama’s one-act festival play, “Kafka’s Metamorphosis.” Liz Braley costumed “The Coarse Acting Show,” a spring play that MDI Drama finished last week.
