BSC's taste of Broadway—The Department of Theatre and Dance at Birmingham-Southern is offering a festive sampling of the holiday season through sound and music with the play Striking 12. The show blends the contemporary tale of a grumpy, overworked New Yorker who decides to spend a cold, snowy New Year's Eve alone in his apartment with Hans Christian Andersen's classic tale The Little Match Girl. A fusion of pop, rock, folk, and musical theatre will help bring the story to life. The show will be performed Nov. 19-21 at 7:30 p.m. and Nov. 22 at 2:30 p.m. at the College Theatre. Tickets for Striking 12 can be purchased by calling the College Theatre Box Office at 205/226-4780 or online at www.bsc.edu/goto/td-tickets. The scene here is from the song “Screwed Up People Make Great Art” where The Man Who's Had Enough (portrayed by Gannon Love, seated in center) is accosted by his overly cheery holiday friends (first row, from left): Meredith Dubberly, Emma Palmer, Brandon McCabe, Clara Luthus, and Skyler Vallo; (back row, from left): Kaiya Swanigan, Ellen Johnson, Nolan Martin, and Caleb Grissett. Michael Flowers, chair of the Department of Theatre and Dance, is directing the production.
Gorgeous scenery—Birmingham-Southern has become even more aesthetically pleasing since its new Urban Environmental Park was officially dedicated and opened to the campus Nov. 7 during Homecoming/Alumni Reunion Weekend. The donor-funded park—built by Johnson Kreis Construction Co.—features a 1.5 acre lake with fountain, an amphitheatre, walkways, and rain gardens for storm water management. The park provides a stunning area for students to relax and enjoy recreational activities and also serves as an outdoor classroom to provide students with hands-on learning, especially those majoring in urban environmental studies. Two under-construction residence halls that will provide suite-style living for 167 men and women will soon overlook the new park. More than 3,600 BSC alumni, friends, parents, and members of the campus community attended the Homecoming football game on campus Nov. 7 as part of the Homecoming/Reunion Weekend festivities.
