Chicago closes this weekend after its sell-out run. The show is going out with a bang, and it has been so much fun for everyone that of course no one really wants to see it close. It’s shows like this that create so many life-long memories for our students. It’s one reason we believe that being a theatre and dance major is such a character-building major: it offers to our students a chance to build not only life-long skills, but life-long memories that carry over through the years. Just ask our alumni.
But of course, Chicago is not the only thing going on here. We are always just as proud of our students when they achieve academic success as when they achieve performance success. On October 27th, the annual Scholars’ Breakfast took place. The Scholars’ Breakfast is an event that celebrates the success of the university’s scholarship program. Both scholarship donors and recipients are honored for their contributions and success over the course of the year. Theatre and Dance is fortunate to have a number of scholarships available in all areas of our department. This year the Scholar’s Breakfast was attended by three of our students and their donors. Check out their pictures below. Congratulations to these fine young scholars and artists!
Finally, we had some unusually wonderful weather this past Thursday and Friday, with warm sunshine and temperatures in the mid-70s! This prompted the commedia dell’arte acting class to head on outside and rehearse their work on the academic quadrant. Check out this video of their work – and have a great weekend!
