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.

Regretting that she didn't meet her beloved husband until later in life, a wistful forty-something is miraculously transported back to her youth to experience life in the Popular Republic of Poland in this poignant fantasy comedy from cult director Julisz Machulski (Kiler, Seksmisja). Zosia leads a happy life: she recently remarried to Kuba, and together they work hard to raise her young daughter. Although Zosia's ex-husband has a habit of showing up at the most inopportune times, even his unwanted presence can't spoil her blissful new life. Regretting that she hadn't met Kuba earlier in life, Zosia soon finds out that time can sometimes be turned back. Now, back in the 80s and given a second chance at life, Zosia discovers that true love has a powerful way of transcending space, time, and even political systems.

Cultural Events Series  

 Walnut Street Theatre PresentsGlass Menagerie
Tennessee Williams'

"The Glass Menagerie" 

Tuesday March 8, 2011
7:30 PM 
Drama Theatre, Performing Arts Center

 

 Tickets:  

FSU Student - $3

Adult - $22
Under 17 - $15

FSU Employee - $15

 

 

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"

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

recyclemania 

 

Frostburg State University is once again competing in the annual RecycleMania Tournament, and we need everyone's help to recycle the most and take the title!! RecycleMania is an 8-week competition between over 600 colleges across the country and around the world that started on February 6th and ends on April 2nd.  FSU is competing to have the highest percentage of recycled materials, the largest number of pounds of recycling per person on campus, and the lowest number of pounds of garbage per person.  Below are tips that will help every FSU student, faculty, and staff member ensure a Bobcat Victory in RecycleMania!!

 

START RECYCLING if you haven't already!!  Recycling bins are located on every floor of every building on campus.  Recycling stations have bins for plastic and glass bottles, cans, and mixed paper (office paper, newspaper, magazines).  Instead of throwing your plastic bottle in a trash can, carry it the extra two or three feet to a recycling bin.

ONLY RECYCLE materials listed on the bins.  Trash or items that do not match the label contaminate the recycling load and disqualify the bag from the competition.  In order to be able to count all of our recycling it is CRITICAL that you follow the labels on the bins.

GET INFORMATION on how FSU is doing in the competition by visiting the Learning Green, Living Green Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/frostburglglg.  Recycling information is updated weekly as we submit our results to RecycleMania.  You can find out more about RecycleMania at www.recyclemania.org.

TELL YOUR FRIENDS about the competition and encourage them to start recycling.

Earn $ tutoring local kids!

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!
