* Theatre Department opens MACHINAL in the May Studio Theatre

The University of Evansville Department of Theatre opens Machinal, by Sophie Treadwell, Friday Mar. 27, at 7:30 p.m., in the May Studio Theatre. The show will continue with performances at 7:30 p.m. on Mar. 28, 30, 31, and Apr. 1, 2 and at 2:00 p.m. on Mar. 29.

Out of the smoggy, bustling streets of 1920’s New York emerges the story of one ordinary woman who is trapped between her desires and the necessities of her mechanized life. Playwright Sophie Treadwell draws from the true story of the infamous “Black Widow,” Ruth Snyder, the first woman executed by electric chair in the state of New York.

Through Treadwell’s use of Expressionistic language and accentuated soundscapes, she turns a murder scandal into a beautiful exploration of a nightmarish human life, distorted and prohibited from reaching its one desire:  love.

Episodic scenes from various stages of the young woman’s life express the conflict between the rules of the world and the desires of the human heart, leading to tragic and dark consequences.

Anna Rhoads, a senior stage management major from Salem, Ind., takes the helm as director of the production. The cast includes seniors Sarah McAfee, from St. Louis, Mo.; Anders Nerheim, from Minnetrista, Minn.; Ben Anderson, from Los Angeles, Calif.; Emily Daly, from Milwaukee, Wis.; Steffan Clark, from Owensboro, Ky.; juniors Carter Caldwell from Louisville, Ky.; Devin Fluker, from Las Vegas, Nev.; sophomore Nate DeCook, from Holland, Mich.; freshmen Davis Cowart, from Bronwood, Ga.; Baxter Pitt, from Dallas, Texas; Jacob Sellers, from Fort Branch, Ind.; Kira Vuolo, from Westminster, Colo.; and Braden Wilkerson, from Fort Worth, Texas.

The creative team for Machinal includes scenic design and technical direction by senior Logan McGuire, from Fort Collins, Colo.; costume design by junior Alison Clifton, from Temple, Texas; lighting design by Assistant Professor of Theatre Stephen Boulmetis; sound design by senior Aaron R. Johnson, from Salem, Ind.; the dramaturg is sophomore, Robbie Love, from St. Louis, Mo., and the stage manager is junior Serena Montsma, from Hudsonville, Mich.

In its original premiere in 1928 at the Plymouth Theatre, Machinal was described in The New York Times as a ”triumph of individual distinction, gleaming with intangible beauty…an illuminating, measured drama such as we are not likely to see again” and was hailed in the Times as a play that “in a hundred years…will still be vital and vivid.” Indeed the play has prevailed; Machinal was recently revived at the Roundabout Theatre Company in New York City and garnered four Tony Award nominations.

Tickets are $11 for adults and $9 for senior adults, students, and UE faculty and staff. UE students may pick up their free student rush ticket beginning at 12:00 p.m. on the day of the performance they wish to attend. Seating is limited and patrons are encouraged to make reservations by calling 812–488–2031, Monday through Friday, 12:00 pm to 5:00 pm.

* Help the #FeedTheirLegacy Food Drive

The Muslim Students' Association is asking the UE community to help them collect food for a national food drive.

On February 10, three innocent Muslim students, Deah, Yusor, and Razan, were murdered in North Carolina. Since February 13, a national food drive has been set up to honor the victims.

Why a food drive you ask? These three beautiful souls lived to serve others. Deah's last post on Facebook, before they were killed, showed him feeding the homeless people in North Carolina. We feed their legacy by feeding those in need.

Cans and money are being collected nationwide and the mosque in the Tri-State area is participating in this charity. All cans will be donated to Tri-State Food Bank here locally. All money will be used to purchase cans.

Over 48,000 cans have been collected. You can see the food drive in action on this site: http://www.feedtheirlegacy.com/

To donate cans or money, please contact the president of UE's Muslim Students Association Kareem El-Khodary at ke94@evansville.edu.

* UE's Brodie Harkness Named MVC Pitcher of the Week

The Missouri Valley Conference announced on Monday that University of Evansville baseball player Brodie Harkness was named Pitcher of the Week.

Harkness (3-1) had a career day in the Aces’ 3-1 win over #18 Dallas Baptist on Sunday. The freshman left-hander threw a career-high 8.0 innings in the victory, yielding just one unearned run on four hits.

The Bowmanville, Ont. native allowed three infield singles against the top hitting team in the Missouri Valley Conference. The Patriots didn’t get a hit out of the infield until there were two outs in the eighth.

Harkness pitched around three defensive errors and limited DBU to a .160 batting average. He also retired five batters in a row mid-way through the game and also struck out five batters in the win, the first UE victory over a ranked opponent since winning at #4 Vanderbilt on Feb. 26, 2014.
