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.

I was looking out my back window, when I saw this deer. First it smelled one of our plants, then it walked up to the hummingbird feeder and smelled the flowers on it.
