Learning about musical theatre from a classroom is fun, but experiencing it is even better. Sterling College students were able to do just that during their musical theatre interterm course, which included a week in New York City.
Among the usual general education courses offered, Sterling College's interterm session had one notably, yet unusual, class offered this year. From January 4 - 20, 2011, twelve students "went to the movies" by through a course called "B-Movies." The course, taught by Assistant Professor of Mathematics Daniel Callahan, involved screening movies that held topics such as the atomic age, atom bombs and missiles and the threat of imminent nuclear holocaust.
Sterling College Theatre Department will be performing a production of Ming Lee and the Magic Tree, a delight for all ages, on Wednesday, January 19 in Culbertson Auditorium with a matinee beginning at 1:30 pm for area school children. A performance for the general public and college students will take place later that evening at 7:30 pm. Family and groups and groups are welcome. There is no admission charge.
