UPC International Film:  Nora's Will  Nora's Will

Tuesday February 22, 2011
7:00 PM 
Lane University Center 111
FREE
  
This story begins when Jose finds out that Nora, the woman he'd been married to for 30 years and then divorced, has committed suicide. The rabbi explains to Jose that due to the celebration of the Passover festivities, together with a few other factors, if Nora is not buried that same day, they will have to wait almost five days to be able to carry out the burial. It turns out that before she died, Nora devised a Machiavellian plan in order for him to take care of her funeral. But she missed something, a mysterious photograph left under the bed will lead to an unexpected outcome which will remind us that sometimes the greatest love stories are hidden in the smallest places.

The Burlesque Lounge has its best days behind it. Tess, a retired dancer and owner of the venue, struggles to keep the aging theater alive, facing all kinds of financial and artistic challenges. With the Lounge's troupe members becoming increasingly distracted by personal problems and a threat coming from a wealthy businessman's quest to buy the spot from Tess, the good fortune seems to have abandoned the club altogether. Meanwhile, the life of Ali, a small-town girl from Iowa, is about to change dramatically. Hired by Tess as a waitress at the Lounge, Ali escapes a hollow past and quickly falls in love with the art of burlesque. Backed by newfound friends amongst the theater's crew, she manages to fulfill her dreams of being on stage herself. Things take a dramatic turn though when Ali's big voice makes her become the main attraction of the revue.

Cultural Events Series  
Glass Menagerie
Walnut Street Theatre Presents
  Tennessee Williams'

"The Glass Menagerie"

 

Tuesday March 8, 2011
7:30 PM  

Drama Theatre, Performing Arts Center

 Tickets:  Adult - $22
Under 17 - $15

FSU Employee - $15
FSU Student - $3

The scene is a small apartment in 1937 St. Louis - the home of Amanda Wingfield and her two children - Tom, an aspiring poet and shoe factory worker, and Laura, a painfully shy girl who wears a brace on her leg and spends her free time playing with her small glass animal collection. Amanda is Laura's mother and a former Southern belle, who, since her husband left her (he was a "telephone man who fell in love with long distance"), has been obsessed with finding an appropriate "gentlemen caller" for her fragile daughter. The overbearing mother elicits the help of her irresponsible, dreamer son in hopes of making her own dreams come true. With its haunting memory-style narration and heartbreaking characters, "The Glass Menagerie" is one of Tennessee Williams' first and most adored plays. The Walnut Street Theatre's riveting new production of this piece of classic American theatre coincides with the centennial of the playwright's birth.

"Yes, I have tricks in my pocket, I have things up my sleeve. But I am the opposite of a stage magician. He gives you illusion that has the appearance of truth. I give you truth in the pleasant disguise of illusion." 
- Tom Wingfield, "The Glass Menagerie"

CelticCrossroads   

 Celtic Crossroads  


Sunday, March 13, 2011
7:30 PM
Mt Ridge High School
  Tickets:  Adult - $22
Under 17 - $15
FSU Employee - $15
FSU Student - $3

It's time to take the stereotypes of traditional Celtic music and toss them aside. Celtic Crossroads revitalizes traditional Irish music and takes it to the next level. The name Celtic Crossroads stems from a time in Ireland when neighboring communities met at crossroads between towns and villages to socialize before the pub tradition began. Blending a mix of inventive arrangements and bass-driven grooves with traditional Irish acoustic music, the Celtic Crossroads performance travels to new territory. Seven musicians play over 20 instruments (including whistles, harps, fiddles, banjos, mandolins, accordions, drums and others) to present Irish tunes influenced by other musical styles, including European gypsy, North American bluegrass, classical and jazz. Celtic Crossroads presents Irish music like never before, set to do to Irish music what Riverdance has done to Irish dance.

 

"Without a doubt, the most exciting music show to come out of Ireland in decades,"

- Frank McNamara, originator of The Irish Tenors

Read to Succeed! is seeking volunteers to tutor K-8 students in reading and math during the Spring 2011 semesters.  Read To Succeed! is a decade-old service learning project directed by the Office of Leadership and Civic Engagement.  RTS! offers FSU students and community members the opportunity to tutor students as little as one night a week and, in turn, offer tri-state elementary and middle school students FREE math and literacy tutoring.  With 4 nights of tutoring at FSU Pullen Hall 149 and 1 night of tutoring at the South Cumberland Library, there are plenty of opportunities to get involved in the community, gain important teaching experience, secure hours for service learning projects in your major, and potentially earn $10 per hour through work study.   It's a great experience and resume builder!  Training included. Everyone is welcome, though applicants should check with the Financial Aid office for Federal Work Study eligibility (call 301.687.4301). This is a great opportunity for Education and Social Work majors to earn service hours.  Training workshops will be held. If you are interested and/or would like more information, please contact the Program Coordinator anytime during the semester or stop by the Braddock House and see us anytime!

Its national headquarters, the Levere Memorial Temple, was established on the campus of Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois in 1929.

 

Sigma Alpha Epsilon is the largest college fraternity by total initiates, with more than 300,000 initiated members and more than 12,000 undergraduates at 300 chapters in 49 states and provinces at present.  The creed of Sigma Alpha Epsilon, The True Gentleman, must be memorized and recited by all prospective members.
