Some wine?

The Student Production Association of Lane Community College presents the classic Joseph Kesselring comedy Arsenic and Old Lace on the Main Stage of the Performance Hall at Lane Community College; directed by Michael P. Watkins.

Arsenic and Old Lace opened on Broadway on January 10, 1941; providing much-needed comic relief to New Yorkers fearful of the war raging in Europe. The play revolves around two spinster aunts and their innocently sinister way of helping lonely old men seeking lodging in their home find peace. A review in Theatre Arts Magazine at the time called Arsenic and Old Lace “the ultimate in the genre. Arsenic and Old Lace lives up to its beguiling title and succeeds in turning homicide into side-splitting farce.” The play continued on Broadway for 1,444 performances. It was such a hit in London that the English lined up for tickets during the London Blitz. In 1944, Arsenic and Old Lace was made into a hit movie starring Cary Grant.

Arsenic and Old Lace opens Thursday, October 1 on the Main Stage in Lane's Performing Arts Hall, which was renovated this summer with new seating. Performances continue on weekends through October 17. Curtain is at 8:00pm. A Sunday matinee is scheduled on October 11th at 2:00pm.

Tickets for the show are $12.50 for Adults, $10 for Students. Tickets may be reserved by calling the Student Production Association office at 541-463-5761; purchased at the door or in advance at Lane's on-line box office.

This is one of the only ways I can get as many people’s attention as possible, so please don’t delete this, please read it, research it, and don’t scoff just becuase it’s shocking.

Nothing planned for the 4th?

Good. Check out my friend playing with the Cocker Spaniels at the Tiny Tavern at 8p. Led by Sean Padilla, they are catchy, quirky and fun. Really creative melodies with just the right amount of humor. Check their myspace for a taste of their music. Listen twice before you decide.

It'll be right here in Eugene. Sadly, I will not be able to make it as I'm working a double shift at work that day (and night).

Links below. I hope a few of you are able to go and enjoy!

Can someone lead me in the right direction?

I plan on moving to Oregon sometime this year, and would like to know a few things. I work in the vet field, and would like to know of good veterinary hospitals I can apply to. Websites, or general info are appreciated. Also: Good community colleges/universities that offer great biology and zoology programs.

I am going to apply for a job, and hopefully get on before I make the move. I'm really interested in either moving to Portland, or Eugene.

Thanks a bunch!


Sex, literature, and death

Student Productions Association(S.P.A.) of Lane Community College presents Tom Stoppard's ARCADIA, directed by Mary Unruh.

One of Stoppard's best loved plays, ARCADIA is fast paced comedy that combines Stoppard's quick wit and mastery of language with the beauty of poetry and the elegance of math. It is a story of love, sex scandal, philosophy, and grouse. The characters engage in torrid love affairs, while dueling with each other both literally and intellectually. The plot shuttles back and forth through time; starting in 1809, and then jumping to the present, and then back again. We watch as the both those in the past and future struggle to understand life through poetry, landscaping, mathematical chaos theory, and history. ARCADIA is a masterful mix of light hearted comedy, and bitter-sweet drama; just like life.

ARCADIA runs April 3-4, 9-12, 16-18. Curtain is at 8 PM, with a Sunday April 12 matinée at 2 PM. Tickets are $10 general admission, and $8 for students, staff, and seniors. Performances are in The Blue Door Theatre, Building 6, at LCC. Advanced reservations are recommended.

Buy tickets online at www.lanecc.edu/tickets, or call the box office at 463-5761 for reservations.

(Audience members must be 10 years of age or older.)

Prepare ye to come sing about love!

Coming to Lane Community College just in time for the end of the cold and dreary winter is GODSPELL, one of the most famous Broadway musicals of all time. Student Productions Association presents GODSPELL at Lane Community College, February 5-7, 12-15, 19-21. Performances are at 8 PM with a Sunday matinee at 2 PM, February 15. Tickets are $12.50 general and $10 for students, staff, and seniors. Advanced reservations are recommended.

For ticket reservations, call the box office at 463-5761, or buy tickets online at www.lanecc.edu/tickets

For this SPA production of GODSPELL, director Chris Pinto chose to give the characters some undeniably humble beginnings. The show is set on bleak city streets, where Jesus befriends 12 homeless individuals. In the course of the show, the group comes together to form a community. Prostitutes, drug-addicts, and general miscreants, they are the rejects of society; exactly the kind of people that Jesus would befriend.

The show depicts the adult life of Jesus Christ: His baptism by John the Baptist, the selection of His 12 apostles, and His inevitable betrayal by his most dedicated follower, Judas Iscariot. However, the show also stands for a more universal concept: When the world looks bleak, when we are down and out, when times are rough and when we are
hungry and poor, the only thing to do is to focus on building your community and do what you can to help your fellow man.

With its positive message, GODSPELL, based on the gospel according to St. Matthew, is an up-beat show featuring pantomime, improvisation, charades, and vaudeville. Everybody involved in the play brings something to the table: thier own creativity! When people see it on stage, they're really seeing an intense collaboration between director
and cast.

Scored by Stephen Schwartz, GODSPELL is probably best know for the international hit, "Day By Day," which reached #13 on the Billboard pop singles chart in 1972.

GODSPELL is directed by Chris Pinto, who was last seen on stage in the VLT's Stage Left production of GLENGARY GLEN ROSS and directed the VLT's FUNNY MONEY, ON THE RAZZLE, and the SPA's BUYING TIME and HOT' L BALTIMORE. Music director is Vikki Brabham, who has appeared in many musical theater shows and concerts including shows at Lane Community College and the Very Little Theater, and with the Eugene Concert Choir. She is also a veteran member of OFAM's Emerald City Jazz Kings.The dance is choreographed by Michael Watkins, who has acted and directed in Eugene for almost 20 years. He has recently appeared in ROCKY HORROR and OR NOT TO BE, and has directed numerous shows around town including HAIR, FORTINBRAS and PICASSO AT THE LAPIN AGILE.

The Birds

Aristophanes’ The Birds was first performed in spring of 414 BC, and has remained a favorite through the ages. It has been called many things: an escape to Utopia, a play for peace, a political commentary, and always a comedy. The Birds, not to be confused with Alfred Hitchcock’s film, is much like an ancient Greek Saturday Night Live.

Historically The Birds parodies and lampoons the local, popular culture and politics, and throughout the years has been adapted to fit which ever era it was produced in. Lane’s production will be no exception with bawdy references to present day pop figures and political controversies.

As part of an experimental collaboration, Lane Community College Student Productions Association’s production of The Birds is directed by James Aday. Cast members have had their own creative hand in making the masks, which they will be wearing on stage. The technical design and construction is completely student generated and executed.

The Birds opens Friday November 14th, and runs for two weekends with shows on the 15th, 20th, 21st, and 22nd. The show begins at 8pm. The November 16th matinée will begin at 2:00pm.

Tickets are $10 for general admission, and $8 for students, seniors, and staff.

Due to its bawdy and irreverent nature no children under the age of 13 will be admitted.

For reservations or ticket information call (541) 463-5761.
