Little Fockers - Official Trailer [HD]

Friday April 1, 2011

Friday: 8:00 PM & 10:00 PM

Lane University Center 111



It has taken 10 years, two little Fockers with wife Pam (Polo) and countless hurdles for Greg to finally get "in" with his tightly wound father-in-law, Jack. After the cash-strapped dad takes a job moonlighting for a drug company, however, Jack's suspicions about his favorite male nurse come roaring back. When Greg and Pam's entire clan-including Pam's lovelorn ex, Kevin (Owen Wilson)-descends for the twins' birthday party, Greg must prove to the skeptical Jack that he's fully capable as the man of the house. But with all the misunderstandings, spying and covert missions, will Greg pass Jack's final test and become the family's next patriarch...or will the circle of trust be broken for good?

 Jon Spelman Presents "Grimm n' Grits"jspelman

Thursday March 31, 2011

4:30 PM

Lane University Center 232 Atkinson Room


General Public - $7

FSU Student - FREE!!!  

Purchase tickets from Lane University Center Box Office 


The afternoon presentation of "Grimm 'n Grits" will be targeted to an audience of elementary school children and educations from throughout the tri-state region, including students from the 21st Century Afterschool Program in Cumberland. In this program, Spelman transforms the fun of the Grimm fairy tales into exciting Southern rural stories, including two stories: a version of the Bremen Town Musicians, called Jack And The Varmints, and a story called Grass Cape, which is a combination of Cinderella and the old folktale that inspired Shakespeare's King Lear.



Jon Spelman Presents "Digging into Shakespeare"jon spelman

Thursday March 31, 2011

7:30 PM

Lane University Center 232 Atkinson Room


General Public - $10

FSU Student - FREE!!!

Purchase tickets from Lane University Center Box Office 


"Digging into Shakespeare" explores his comical, entertaining, and often calamitous experiences in performing Shakespeare throughout his acting career. The Washington Review wrote, "He (Jon Spelman) lifts the audience onto the stage and sends them laughingly back to their seats." Spelman will take the works of William Shakespeare and weave soliloquies from his plays, including two from "Richard III," along with a little "Romeo and Juliet," some "Titus Andronicus" for the blood sport lovers in the audience with his own self-deprecating recollections of disastrous performances and the star-crossed love affairs they begat, or vise versa.  He will even retool "Venus and Adonis" as a blues number featuring musician Tina Chancey on the viola de gamba, a sort of Renaissance-era guitar played with a bow. Appropriately, "Digging into Shakespeare" wraps up with Spelman's recollection of taking his daughter, Anna, at age 15 to see "The Tempest," which features one of the Bard's great father-daughter relationships. Shakespeare buffs will enjoy it as will people who think they don't get Shakespeare, or at least, haven't yet.

Tenor jazz saxophonist Javon Jackson gained international recognition when he performed with Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers. But Jackson has quickly established himself himself as a leader in jazz music and has toured with the Javon Jackson Band throughout the world. Playing professionally in clubs since the age of 16, Jackson met and was mentored by jazz great Branford Marsalis. After graduating from Boston's prestigious Berklee School of Music and later getting his master's degree in music, Jackson became a sought-after entertainer. Over the years, his style of jazz has grown to reflect his influences form the funk, R&B and rock worlds. He often departs from his hard bop jazz and adds a mix of soul/funk to produce a sound that is daring and honest.

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 Recycling information is updated weekly as we submit our results to RecycleMania. You can find out more about RecycleMania at


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