Outdoor classroom—Dr. Emily Klein, assistant professor of English, recently took her EH 420 Performance Studies class outside to the lawn to enjoy the unusual 75-degree weather in November on the grounds of Birmingham-Southern College. “I had heard my BSC friends talk about having class sessions outside, and had wanted to experience it before my graduation in May,” commented Kindred Motes. Pictured (clockwise) are: Klein, Stefano Daneri, Anna Rose MacArthur, Madeleine Walker, Beth Lefler, Lindsey Daniel, Jenny Speir, Kortni Hadley, Mandy Shunnarah, and Motes.
Day of “Awakening”—The Birmingham-Southern Theatre Department will present the high-energy rock musical Spring Awakening, winner of eight Tony Awards including Best Musical, Nov. 17-20 in the College Theatre/Mainstage. Show times are Nov. 17-19 at 7:30 p.m. and Nov. 20 at 2:30 p.m. BSC Professor of Theatre Michael Flowers will direct the celebrated musical, which explores in a frank and moving way the passion and pain of growing up. Spring Awakening has an ensemble student cast of 13 featuring Caleb Grissett, a junior musical theatre major from Huntsville, as Melchior; Chelsea Vance, also a junior musical theatre major from Huntsville, as Wendla; and Dallas Taylor, a sophomore musical theatre major from Birmingham, as Moritz. Here, the cast performs one of the show's songs at a recent rehearsal. *Please be advised that Spring Awakening contains strong adult language and situations and is recommended for mature audiences.
