A photo or two
April has been a busy month on the Birmingham-Southern campus, and this week, we feature two photos, both of them involving student activities.
Celebrating the small-town spirit—Using a combination of song, stirring sound effects, and flashes of the Fourth of July, Birmingham-Southern student actors performed the college's first-ever production of Eugene O'Neill's classic comedy Ah, Wilderness! April 26-29 on campus. Taking place over the 1906 Fourth of July weekend in a quaint Connecticut town, the story follows the lives of the Miller family and especially the Miller's son, Richard, who is lovesick for a girl named Muriel McComber. “Unique to this production was an extensive change of sets using the College Theatre stage's lift-revolve mechanism, as well as the reconfiguration of audience seats,” said Michael Flowers, BSC professor of theatre. Pictured are Matt Adams, a freshman from Birmingham, in the role of Richard, and Christina Johnson, a freshman from Montgomery, who portrayed Muriel.
A critical dialogue—Birmingham-Southern students were well-represented at a local College Town Hall Meeting this month hosted by U.S. Rep. Artur Davis, D-Ala. (front row, center). BSC students joined about 200 of their peers from other colleges and universities in the Jefferson County area to discuss pressing issues with Davis that ranged from education to the global climate change to the war in Iraq. The meeting was held at the Birmingham Museum of Art. It was one of several Alabama town hall meetings led by Davis this spring as part of his 2007 district work.
