TheatreUNI: Hair

TheatreUNI: Hair

Thursday, March 1, 2018 - 7:30 pm

Book and lyrics by James Rado and Gerome Ragni and music by Galt MacDermot.

Celebrating the 50th Anniversary!

Sex. Drugs. Love. War.

It’s the 1960s. It’s an era of rock n’ roll, social movements, civil rights activism, and the attempt to let “peace guide the planets, and love steer the stars.” In a time of opposing views, in a country divided, a group of friends works to find love, fight for their beliefs, and “believe that now is the time for all good men to believe in love.”

Hair: a story of people who -- facing a world of hardships -- fight for social justice, and against the draft. In order to maintain their beliefs and change the world, they must work together to promote safety, change, equality, and to “let the Sunshine in.”

Boxes and Walls

Boxes and Walls

Tuesday, March 27, 2018 - 5:00 pm

The purpose of this event is to promote awareness by educating students, faculty, staff, and the surrounding communities about diversity. Everyone is welcome! This event is created to tear down walls and break down boxes that hold stereotypes and stigmas. We hope to encourage students to seek out more information on social justice issues.

Each area creates a space where individuals that enter the space are given the opportunity to see life through a different perspective and face the issues this group encounters. As they leave the event, they will have hopefully walked out with a better understanding and knowledge about diversity and social justice issues.

We will also have a space for debriefing along with resources from the campus community to help discuss the variety of topics as well. Our topics for Boxes and Walls include: Race & Ethnicity, Ability, LGBT*, Eating Disorder & Body Image, Education, Socioeconomic Status, Immigration, Mental Health, Sexual Assault, and Religion.

Boxes and Walls

Boxes and Walls

Thursday, March 29, 2018 - 5:00 pm

The purpose of this event is to promote awareness by educating students, faculty, staff, and the surrounding communities about diversity. Everyone is welcome! This event is created to tear down walls and break down boxes that hold stereotypes and stigmas. We hope to encourage students to seek out more information on social justice issues.

Each area creates a space where individuals that enter the space are given the opportunity to see life through a different perspective and face the issues this group encounters. As they leave the event, they will have hopefully walked out with a better understanding and knowledge about diversity and social justice issues.

We will also have a space for debriefing along with resources from the campus community to help discuss the variety of topics as well. Our topics for Boxes and Walls include: Race & Ethnicity, Ability, LGBT*, Eating Disorder & Body Image, Education, Socioeconomic Status, Immigration, Mental Health, Sexual Assault, and Religion.
