Second Stage Play “Shadows” Thurs., 2/24-Sat., 2/26

See “Shadow,” a new play presented by Second Stage! A dissident poet and his family are being shadowed by a young Gestapo agent in 1933 Nazi Germany. The Nazi agent is also a budding poet, and the two men develop a close friendship. But when Nazi thugs destroy the dissidents’ life and kill everyone he loves, will the agent risk everything to help his friend seek revenge? 

 The show goes up this Thursday through Saturday (February 24th, 25th, and 26th) in the ’92 Theater. Shows start at 8pm each day, with an additional matinee performance at 3pm on Saturday. Tickets are available at the box office (for free!). 

Most of the cast is from the class of ’13, including: Paulie Lowther, Noah Schlesinger, Danielle Springer, Evan Hazelett, Amara Davila, Tim Wolock, Maddie McEntire, Bryce Hollingsworth, Elizabeth Rudy, and Sam Korda. Written and directed by Michael Steves ’13.

Take a Prof to lunch–for free!

Dear Students,

Our faculty-student free lunch program has been successful in fostering informal faculty-student interaction outside the classroom, and I am pleased to announce the continuation of the Daniel Family Commons Free Lunch Program for the rest of this semester.  We have again provided each faculty member with vouchers that enable them to take small groups of students to lunch at the Daniel Family Commons in the Usdan Center.

If a faculty member has not yet asked you to lunch, it is time for you to take the initiative!  Stop by my office (220 North College) during business hours to pick up a voucher.  Each voucher covers the cost of lunch for a faculty member and up to three students, and vouchers will be good for the remainder of the current academic year.

Please consider inviting your favorite faculty member to lunch.

Best, Dean Mike Whaley
