ASU Student Showcase Feb. 10-13
Appalachian State University's Department of Theatre and Dance presents a Student Showcase Feb. 10-13 in I.G. Greer Studio Theatre. All shows begin at 7 p.m.
Tickets are $5 general admission for all patrons. The Valborg Theatre box office is open weekdays from 2-5 p.m. Tickets will be available after 6 p.m. prior to each performance at the Studio Theatre in I.G. Greer. Patrons can purchase tickets in person or by phone at (828) 262-3063.
All are invited to come enjoy an evening of directed and choreographed dance and theatre, performed by students.
Victor Rivera, Ryan Sheehe and Josh Warthen portray 15 different characters in "15 Minute Hamlet" by Tom Stoppard.
Steve Boykin choreographed the piece "A Choice to Be Made," in which four dancers reflect the body's reaction to grief. The work explores the process of coping with grief as common to all and an opportunity for growth rather than negative experience.
Choreographers and dancers Dani Harris, Lisa Mahedy and Joanna Faulkenberry perform "A Vivid Tread" to live music by Will Willard.
Jacqui Bryant choreographed "Great Expectations," a work addressing the events in our lives, and the expectations and responses we have of ourselves and others.
The well-known local improvisational group, NouN, will perform a unique piece each evening. Delighting local audiences since 1999, NouN is Appalachian's only improvisational drama troupe. They perform regularly at Legends in Boone and will perform at the North Carolina Comedy Arts Festival next month. For more information about NouN, visit http://www.noun.appstate.edu.
The Department of Theatre and Dance sends loud applause to its 2009-10 season sponsors, Boone Bagelry, Joe's Italian Kitchen and Stick Boy Bread Company for their generous support.
I.G. Greer Studio Theatre is located in the lower level of I.G. Greer Hall, on the building's east side. The door faces the B.B. Dougherty Administration Building. Parking is available after 5 p.m. on campus in faculty lots, the College Street parking deck near the Belk Library and Information Commons, and the main Parking Deck on Rivers Street.
