Upcoming Events

* UE Theatre Announces Child Auditions for Big Fish

The University of Evansville of Evansville Department of Theatre is holding auditions, 7 p.m., Monday, August 31, for two males, between the ages of 8 and 13, for their upcoming musical production of Big Fish. Auditions will be held in the May Studio Theatre on the University of Evansville campus.

Actors should prepare any song of their choice, bring sheet music for live accompaniment, and be prepared to read from the script. Actors should be available for some evening rehearsals, beginning mid- October and all performances, November 13 through 22.

Big Fish, book by John August, music and Lyrics by Andrew Lippa, is based on the novel Big Fish, by Daniel Wallace, and the Columbia Pictures Film. R. Scott Lank directs the production, with musical direction by Gregory B. Rike, and choreography by Ricki Newman. Set in the Deep South, this family-friendly, heart-warming, and fantastical musical is centered on Edward Bloom, a traveling salesman who possesses a strong desire to be a hero, both to himself and his son. His penchant for spinning tall tales and elaborate daydreams is solely to convince himself there is meaning and purpose to his ordinary life. This musical’s moving score honors the age-old art of storytelling by invoking the sense that imagination can transform even the humblest man’s life story into an unforgettable epic adventure.

To sign up for auditions, please call Sharla Cowden at 812.488.2747 or send an email to

Under close supervision of Dr. Yasser Alhenawi, students were given the opportunity to discover the world of agricultural lending and administer tools from their courses in a real world environment, helping them to gain experience for their future.

Top executives from Farm Credit Mid-America, including CEO Bill Johnson, who is a UE alum, introduced students to agro-banking and taught them how to maintain an impressive work atmosphere while also improving customer relations and profits for the company.

"We had a wonderful week networking with executives and learning so much about business in agriculture. We left as four business students with no knowledge of agricultural lending, and returned as great friends with a lot of real world experience! We were able to put a lot of what we learned in class to use, and loved the work atmosphere this company maintains. We thank the Institute of Banking and Finance, Dr. Alhenawi, and Dr. Rawski for this great opportunity!"
