LCSC's Shakespeare Society and the Silverthorne Theater Group present Loves Me (Not)

LCSC's Shakespeare Society and the Silverthorne Theater Group present Loves Me (Not)

 

Join the dedicated actors of The Loves Me (Not) Devising Company as they perform the story within us all: “Loves Me (Not): A Mediation on Love from the Work of William Shakespeare.” Performances are scheduled for 7:30 p.m., April 30 - May 2, in the newly renovated Silverthorne Theater in the Administration Building at Lewis-Clark State College.

 

Taking Shakespeare out of the land of Elizabethan England, and into the modern world of one party, 22 characters, and too many red Solo cups, “Loves Me (Not)” explores the transcendence of romance over time and the universality of the emotions that drive people—regardless of class, family, war, greed and pride—to fall into deep, sometimes maddening, love.

 

Romeo and Juliet proclaim their love once more, but this time in 2015. Lady Macbeth continues to plot her move to power, however, instead of doing it in a medieval castle, she opts for a modern rager. Beatrice and Benedick continue their squabbles, yet in a vast land of beer pong, Beliebers and Barbie doll beauty.

 

Life Flight helicopter to participate in LCSC's disaster drill April 13

Life Flight helicopter to participate in LCSC's disaster drill April 13

 

The Lewis-Clark State College Nursing and Health Science Division will simulate a disaster drill on Monday April 13th from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. on the LCSC Administration Building lawn just east of the Library.

 

A Life Flight medical helicopter is scheduled to participate in the drill. The helicopter is expected to touch down at 2:00 p.m. After a demonstration of the equipment on board is given to students, the helicopter will simulate the transport of a patient as it heads back to Life Flight headquarters.

 

The semiannual drill, which has occurred once per semester for the past 16 years, is part of LCSC's Community Health Nursing course taught by Dr. Tracy Flynn and Susie Blunt, professors of nursing at Lewis-Clark State.

 

"It's meant to prepare students to respond to any disasters that may occur in the region and it's a terrific experience for the students," Flynn said. "They generally enjoy the drill and it gives them a good idea of what to expect in a mass casualty situation."

LCSC Anthropology Club to host Mardi Gras Casino Night fundraiser Feb. 20

The Lewis-Clark State College Anthropology Club is holding its Third Annual Mardi Gras Casino Night fundraiser on Friday, February 20, from 6:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. at the Lewiston Elks Lodge. Proceeds from the event will go to students participating in a field school in Ecuador in May/June 2015. The field school involves undergraduate research, service learning, and the acquisition of Spanish language skills. 

 

The Mardi Gras event includes a silent auction, casino-style games (with play money provided), prizes, and dinner for $25 per person. Attendees can skip dinner at 6:00 p.m. and enjoy the rest of the night from 8:00 p.m. to 11:00 pm for only $15. Last year, thanks to the generosity of the community, the club raised over $3,000. This year the goal is set higher at $5,000. 

 

The majority of participants in the field school are first-generation, low-income students who have never traveled beyond our region. Mardi Gras Casino Night supports undergraduate students by helping them to reduce their individual participation costs of $3,500.
