October 13th, 2012 - November 18th, 2012 - "Mary Rose" by J.M. Barrie, Directed by Michael Stebbins
"Mary Rose" tells the lyrical, stirring story of a girl who disappears only to return mysteriously with no memory of time passed, setting off a heartbreaking and thrilling course of events. First performed in 1920, and considered by many Barrie scholars to be a sequel (of sorts) to "Peter Pan," this haunting tale of love, loss, ghosts and the living became a major obsession and inspiration for Alfred Hitchcock. Rep Stage's Producing Artistic Director Michael Stebbins, who directed "Two by J.M. Barrie: The New Word and The Old Lady Shows Her Medals," reunites cast members Christine Demuth, Maureen Kerrigan and Bill Largess for the autumnal offering.
In October 2002, Judy Chicago spoke in Smith Theater. After many years in storage, her masterwork The Dinner Party was purchased by the Elizabeth A. Sackler Foundation and donated to the Brooklyn Museum in New York City where it debuted as a permanent exhibit in March 2007. Thirty-nine women, who have been lost to history, have place settings at a massive equilateral triangle. Each has a unique porcelain dinner plate and an embroidered runner depicting the key features of her life and work. Why not take one of the New York bus trips, sponsored by Student Activities, and see this incredible art installation for yourself?
