NSU Theatre: Spring Awakening

NSU Theatre: Spring Awakening

 “Spring Awakening” with book and lyrics by Steven Sater and music by Duncan Sheik is based on the groundbreaking and controversial play “Spring Awakening” by Frank Wedekind.  The play is set in 1891 when the grownups hold all the cards. Headstrong Melchior and naïve Wendla stumble into each other’s arms, passionate and curious while anxious Moritz struggles to live up to the stringent expectations of society.

With only each other for guidance, this group of young men and women travel the fraught and rocky path of adolescence, discovering their bodies, their minds and themselves along the way. An eclectic, vibrant celebration of youth and rebellion, “Spring Awakening” fuses issues of morality, sexuality and rock and roll into a story that packs a powerful emotional punch. It is suitable for mature audiences over 18.

Tickets are $15 for adults and $12 for children and senior citizens. NSU, BPCC@NSU and Louisiana School for Math, Science and the Arts are admitted free with a current student I.D. Tickets can be purchased online at capa.nsula.edu/theatre/season-tickets.For more information, call (318) 357-4483

The Art of Filé Making: An Afternoon with John Oswald Colson

The Art of Filé Making: An Afternoon with John Oswald Colson

Join the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame and Northwest Louisiana History Museum for an afternoon with Louisiana tradition bearer, filé maker John Oswald Colson.  Mr. Colson has been making filé for over sixty years.  He uses a traditional Native American pilon, similar to a large wooden mortar and pestle, to pound the dried leaves into a fine powder commonly known as filé.  Colson's product, knowledge, and demonstration skills of creating gumbo filé have been sought by those throughout Louisiana and beyond. Folklife Ambassador for the Louisiana Folklife Commission Dr. Shane Rasmussen will interview John about his craft and lead a panel discussion with Dr. Hiram "Pete"  Gregory, Professor of Anthropology, NSU and Dustin Fuqua, Chief of Resource Management, CRCNH Park. This event is part of a series of events throughout the state for Folklife Month in Louisiana.

This event is FREE and open to the public.
