Event Description

The Term’s End Shakespeare Showcase, presented tri-annually at Lane
Community College, offers up a cavalcade of scenes from the Bard’s plays.
There will be two free performances on Saturday, March 13, at 2:00 P.M. and
7:00 P.M., in the Blue Door Theater, Building 6, on the main campus.

Student and faculty actors will be joined by guest artists: Eugene actors Marcee Long and Nancy Hopps, and Joe Cronin (formerly of Oregon Shakespeare Company and Utah Shakespeare Company). Narration will be provided by Patrick Torelle, and live music by Linda Danielson.

The program is the final project for the students of the Acting Shakespeare class. Other actors join in because of their passion for Shakespeare’s writing. Director Judith “Sparky” Roberts says the program, which runs just under two hours, will appeal to “Shakespeare-lovers and those who just want to get their feet wet.”

The set for the monologues and scenes is L.C.C.’s specially-constructed replica of the London Globe Theatre stage.

Selected pieces will be from *Henry V, Henry VI, Taming of the Shrew, Macbeth, Much Ado About Nothing, Julius Caesar, Troilus and Cressida, Merchant of Venice, King Lear, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, As You Like It, Hamlet, The Tempest, Two Gentlemen of Verona, Twelfth Night, Measure for Measure, Titus Andronicus, *and *Richard III.*

For more information, call the SPA office: 541-463-5761. Seating is open.
Donations are welcome to support the continuing efforts of the Students Productions Association. Audience members must be over age 10 to be admitted.

Water drops on dandelion seed heads. The first rain we have had for awhile came this morning.

I took this photo about 10 AM, but since it was in the shade of one of our trees, I decided to use the flash and it made it look more like I had taken it at night.

While plucking dead blossoms from my Petunia plant I noticed this unusual spider so decided to take a photo of it. After loaded the shot in my computer I saw that the design on it's back looked like some sort of 'space alien'. Interesting. Enjoy.
