Letters Home

Performed by Chicago’s Griffin Theatre Company
Wednesday, November 18, 2015, 7:30 p.m.

‌Letters Home puts recent Afghanistan & Iraq wars front and center by bringing to life actual letters written by soldiers serving in the Middle East. The play gives audiences a powerful portrait of the soldier experience during wartime. These letters were written under difficult circumstances; the disorientation of training, deployment, separation from family, combat, and occupation duties. One theme seems to unite these diverse voices; the belief that the person standing beside you is more important than you. The production employs the use of images and video projected behind the actors. Photos and videos used in the production are taken directly from actual soldiers’ blogs and web posts. To enhance the theatrical experience of the play, the performance is followed by a Q&A period.

Free 30-minute special lecture precedes this performance at 6:30 p.m. in the Babka Theatre.

Military active duty, retired, and reserve components eligible for free admission with military ID.

This engagement is presented in cooperation with the University of Dubuque Veterans Center.

A free screening of the film “Last Days of Vietnam” will be shown in advance of this presentation on Tuesday, November 17, at 7:00 p.m.

Saturday, February 13, 2016, 7:30 p.m.

‌Jump Rhythm Jazz Project is a multiple-Emmy®-Award-winning performance company based in Chicago. JRJP celebrates the communal core of jazz performance — dancing, singing, and storytelling in rhythmically syncopated conversations to the beat-driven sounds of the blues, swinging jazz, funk, hip hop, and world music.  Founded by Billy Siegenfeld in New York City in 1990, JRJP has grown into an ensemble embodying a life-affirming mix of percussive musicality and emotion-driven, vocal-rhythmic dance. According to the New York Times, JRJP “captures the exuberant physicality of good dancers when moments of extreme control and abandon are seamlessly combined.”

Free 30-mintue special lecture precedes this performance at 6:30 p.m. in the Babka Theatre. 

Presentation held in conjunction with UD Adrian High School Theater & Dance Festival.

This engagement is supported by the Arts Midwest Touring Fund, a program of Arts Midwest, which is generously supported by the National Endowment for the Arts with additional contributions from the Iowa Arts Council.

Cinderella

Performed by Opera Iowa (Des Moines)

Friday, April 15, 2016, 7:00pm

‌For Opera Iowa’s 30th anniversary season, Rossini’s version of the classic-fairy tale Cinderella is a vocal and comedic romp! A wise magician takes the place of the fairy godmother and Don Magnifico, the girl’s father, rants and raves instead of a wicked stepmother, but the nasty stepsisters, Prince Charming, and a glass slipper prove, beyond all question, that this is the fairy tale we all know and love. And when it’s combined with hilarious characters and situations and set to some of Rossini’s finest music, it becomes comic opera at its most exhilarating and frenzied best!
