Rock opera—Cast members of Birmingham-Southern’s theatre production of Rent rehearse a scene from the award-winning Broadway rock musical to be performed April 26-29 on the College Theatre/Mainstage. Show times are 7:30 p.m. April 26-28 and 2:30 p.m. on April 29. General tickets are $20; students can get in for $10 (regardless of school). “Rent is one of the most iconic musicals of the past two decades,” said Michael Flowers, professor of theatre and the director of the production. “Its unique blend of rock 'n roll and musical theatre combines to tell a heartfelt story about family, what it means to live on the fringes of our culture, and how one finds the strength to face an uncertain tomorrow. Perhaps the show's most famous lyric, "no day but today," best sums up this extraordinary musical.” For tickets, order online or visit the BSC Theatre Box Office Monday through Friday from 1 to 4:45 p.m. or call 205/226-4780.
*Please be advised that Rent contains strong adult language and situations and is recommended for mature audiences.
Playing soldier—The annual “Rowdy at the Lake” event April 4 on the Birmingham-Southern campus featured paintball for the first time. Paintball is a game where two teams or individuals compete for an objective while avoiding being “marked” by paint shot from an air-powered paintball gun. Paintballs are a mix of biodegradable gelatin particles and food coloring. Doodles Italian Ice and Gigi’s Cupcakes also were available for the students who came out and enjoyed a beautiful day at the Urban Environmental Park and Lake. Pictured is BSC sophomore history major and Quest II member John Patrick “JP” McDonald having a little fun shooting one of the students’ favorite campus police officers Guy Carney towards the end of the event. “Rowdy at the Lake” was sponsored by Quest II (the student programming board) and the Student Government Association.
