Students in Professor Ashley Kniss' ENG152 class had the opportunity to experience life on stage in Elizabethan England this week.  Professor Ryan Clark brought the students into the world of Shakespearean Theatre and onto the stage of SU's production of A Midsummer Night's Dream.  Students learned about play performance and acting techniques from the period and even had the chance to try on some costumes.  Midsummer runs through this weekend with performances at the Inscape Theatre on Friday and Saturday at 7pm.

Stevenson University's production of The Glass Menagerie ended a successful run this weekend.  The actors effectively walked the line between revealing the characters' flaws and creating sympathy for them, and the acting, directing, and design were seamlessly integrated to evoke a sense of nostalgia and memory for the audience.  As the story unfolded, the audience was transported to St. Louis in 1939 and experienced the despair and longing of characters who are dissatisfied with their own lives but ill-equipped for anything else.  

The show was directed by Ryan Clark (Program Director, Theatre & Media Performance) and starred Chris Roberts (Theatre & Media Performance faculty), Adam Vaughn (senior, FMI major), Jack Rizzo (sophomore, Digital Marketing major), and Victoria Taylour Caldwell (freshman, Theatre & Media Performance major) with design by Chris Crostic (Theatre & Media Performance faculty) and Lori Rubeling (VCD faculty, School of Design). 

The Department of Theatre & Media Performance welcomed students from Patapsco High School to a special matinee performance of The Glass Menagerie. Following the performance, students had the opportunity to talk with the cast and crew over lunch and learn more about programs in HaSS and the School of Design.  We hope to see some of them as future Mustangs!

The Glass Menagerie will run through 11/19.  Many thanks to Professors Ryan Clark and Chris Crostic for organizing this event.
