The 3rd-Annual 10-Minute Play Festival will take place the second weekend in February. This is a showcase of six 10-minute plays, all written by students, directed by students and performed by students. The production is offered in the Theater Arts curriculum through an Actor/Director Workshop for which directors and actors can receive credits.
So many movies, so little time. We’re starting off the semester right with a plethora of films that just opened last Friday. Just investigating them for the paper makes me want to see them myself. Nice variety of genres here. Enjoy!
Printz-award winning novelist John Green has released his latest New York Times bestseller, this time coming to readers through his powerful, luminous work The Fault in Our Stars. This is a novel whose number of pre-orders actually pushed the date of publication up six months, and has already premiered in the number one slot on the New York Times bestseller list for young adult and chapter books.
The golden gates of heaven sit on clouds high above an aesthetically classical courtroom. A golden staircase leads down to the courtroom floor, where actors and audience are level with each other. The courtroom has an air of prestige, but the off-white curtains encompassing the theater are cut imperfectly, as if embarrassed to be curtains in purgatory and not in heaven.
