* University of Evansville Theatre Announces Fall 2021 Season

The University of Evansville (UE) Department of Theatre proudly presents the Fall 2021 Shanklin Theatre season. After more than a year’s absence from live performances on campus, UE Theatre is ready to welcome patrons back with an extraordinary line-up of plays which includes a humorous interpretation of everyday life, a dashing story of self-willed sisters, and a fascinating cabaret about life and the way people interact with possessions.

The season kicks off with EVERYBODY, written by Branden Jacobs-Jenkins and directed by Visiting Assistant Professor Stacey Yen. EVERYBODY opens on Fri., Sept. 24, at 7:30 p.m., in Shanklin Theatre. Additional performances are at 7:30 p.m., on Sept. 2–5, 30, Oct. 1, 2, and at 2:00 p.m., on Oct. 3.

A finalist for the 2018 Pulitzer Prize in Drama, this innovative play is an immersive and inclusive experience for the cast and audience—as actors draw lots onstage to discover which role they will play at each performance. This brilliant, award-winning playwright gives us a modern take on EVERYMAN, a 15th-century morality play. His inventive interpretation is a provocative and joyful romp about love and death, a whimsical look into the unknown, and, ultimately, an exploration of the ties that bind us on this wondrous journey called life. Who knew that death could be so fun? And absurdly funny!

Next in the repertory line-up is THREE SISTERS from the iconic playwright Anton Chekhov, written in a new version, by Sarah Ruhl. The production is directed by Professor Diane Brewer and opens Fri., Nov. 12, at 7:30 p.m. Additional performances are at 7:30 p.m., on Nov. 19, 20, Dec. 2, and at 2:00 p.m., on Nov. 13 and Dec. 5.

This playwright’s modern voice has garnered her a Tony Award nomination, a MacArthur Fellowship, and she was twice named a Pulitzer Prize finalist. Her version of one of Chekhov’s most famous plays exposes the timely struggles of a family living in a small town in Russia and facing gambling debts, a house in foreclosure, and fears of a war on the horizon. These sisters defy despair, celebrate milestones, fall hopelessly in love, and rival as only siblings can. With unyielding resilience and acerbic humor, these women throw themselves into the distance between their dreams and reality and inspire us all to brave our own “new normal.”

The inventive play GONE MISSING, devised by the groundbreaking theatre troupe, The Civilians, is directed by Wes Grantom ’03 and opens Sat., Nov. 13, at 7:30 p.m. Additional performances are at 7:30 p.m., on Nov. 18, Dec. 3, 4, and at 2:00 p.m., on Nov. 20, 21.

This charming show combines real-life interviews about the nature of memory with a scintillating score that effortlessly swings between salsa, ballads, jazzy numbers, and tuneful pop songs. An ensemble of eccentric characters seamlessly intertwines tales of lost objects with fascinating stories of seekers and finders and examines our tendency to place heightened significance on everyday items. While a global pandemic may be the most opportune time to explore this “cabaret of loss,” it is the communal experience of shared joy that is sure to resonate and linger in hearts and minds long after the show ends.

In following industry standards, as established by the Broadway League, all audience members must show proof of COVID–19 vaccination or a negative test result

taken within 72-hours of the date on their ticket. Upon arrival at Shanklin Theatre, proof of vaccination/negative test result and an ID will be checked before each performance. In compliance with the UE Coronavirus Task Force guidelines, all audience members must remain masked when indoors on campus. Additionally, Shanklin Theatre will be seated at no more than 50% capacity.

Season tickets are available now at $45 for adults and $40 for senior adults, students, and UE faculty and staff. Single ticket prices for EVERYBODY, THREE SISTERS, and GONE MISSING are $20 for adults and $18 for senior adults, students, and UE faculty and staff. UE students may obtain one free student rush ticket beginning at 12:00 p.m. on the day of the performance they wish to attend. Tickets may be purchased by calling (812) 488–2031, Monday through Friday, 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.

* Do you have plans for Fall Break? Join the Venturing Crew for fall break to the St Louis City Museum, Current River and Jacks Fork

Join the Venturing Crew as we travel to St Louis to visit the City Museum for a day of exploring the unexpected. City Museum is a hundred-year-old warehouse in downtown St. Louis in which artists have repurposed the pieces of old cities to build miles of tunnels, slides, climbers, bridges, and castles. There are secret passages and grand galleries. Playgrounds and ball pits. A circus and a train. A rooftop school bus and a Ferris wheel.

We will then travel to Two Rivers Campground where the crystal clear Current River meets the Jacks Fork and flows past the campground.

We will spend a day canoeing each river and sit around the camp fire at night playing games "Mafia", eating extreme S'mores and telling stories.

On the last day we break camp and head for home but not before stopping at Lambert's Cafe, the home of the flying rolls where we will eat a hearty brunch and try not to get hit with a hot buttery roll.

We will leave campus Friday October 8th around 6pm and return Tuesday October 12 around 3pm.

Sign up tables will be in Ridgway starting Tuesday Sept 28th and the cost will be $75

* Milan, Italy: The Center for Innovation & Change Presented at the 13th annual International Social Innovation Research Conference (ISIRC) 9/8-10

Milan, Italy: The Center for Innovation & Change had two joint paper abstracts accepted to the 13th annual International Social Innovation Research Conference (ISIRC) in Milan, 9/8-10. Executive Director Erin Lewis & Associate Director Brooksie Smith remotely presented on the abstracts. The conference hosted hundreds of faculty and program officers from universities all over the world.

September 8: Brooksie's presentation, 'The Potential for Hybrid Organization in Addressing Social Problems in a Community on Campus' examined how ChangeLab as a model can help cities and universities partner together across sectors to solve problems. Over time, ChangeLab has evolved from a consulting service for a few dozen students, to a city-wide resource with dozens of faculty and hundreds of students each year engaged in local problem solving each year across many disciplines. This presentation clarified how the core of the program's hybrid model is a commitment to making positive social, environmental, and commercial impacts, and being intentional in how we find ways to connect the academic experience to our community.

September 9: Erin's presentation, 'Social Innovation Reimagined in the Pandemic Era: A Case Study of How ChangeLab Was Ready to Adapt', told the story of the spring 2020 shutdown and how our faculty and students innovated to still conduct 14 social innovation projects. The case study highlighted projects like Dr. Anne Powell's (Biology) Horticulture ChangeLab, which designed and planted a memorial garden for a cemetery, and Dr. Jeff Braun's (Physics) ChangeLab, which worked with an independent study student to identify potential capstone projects in our community. The history of ChangeLab was explored, from its inception as GAP, to the 2015 Propose Your Own programmatic change that led to an explosion of ideas from faculty and students. The potential for this new phase of larger interdisciplinary partnerships was also examined, with a discussion of projects like COVID Between the Coasts, Trinity Storm Waterpark, and the Harper Air Filter project.

* KUDOS! Prof Cindy Crowe and her Latinx Community Health ChangeLab makes the Indianapolis Star

The University of Evansville is doing their part to try to help bolster COVID-19 vaccination rates, especially those in the Latinx community.

"I am extremely proud of the ChangeLab students who have put in so much time and dedication to making the vaccination clinic we had in the spring and the upcoming vaccination clinic successful. They are doing a tremendous service for our community and very likely saving lives. These UE students are an inspiration to me and to so many others who hear about their work." -Prof Cindy Crowe

EVANSVILLE, Ind. — Like many public health and nonprofit entities across the Tri-state, the University of Evansville is doing its part to try to help bolster COVID-19 vaccination rates, especially those in the Latinx community. The university is using its ChangeLab — a semester course dedicated to helping students make a positive change where students join projects in an area of choice that will help them make a change in the community — to help native-Spanish speaker be informed about the vaccine.

Lucinda Crowe, assistant professor emeritus of Spanish, is the coach for the Latino Community Health course. Her ChangeLab course is dedicated to using the knowledge students gained in her medical Spanish course or other students who have a Spanish background to interpret and transcribe medical materials from English to Spanish. The main goal is to speak with community members and understand their healthcare needs.

'I hope that we can actually take the information and the data that we have regarding the perceived healthcare needs of the community, and actually do something with it to help with the health care needs of the Latino population,' Crowe said.

The course, which started in spring, allowed for students to create a pamphlet in Spanish helping people be more informed about CDC guidelines and where to get vaccinated in Evansville. For Imelda Salgado, a University of Evansville student majoring in nursing and minoring in medical Spanish, she joined the course to help people in her community and spread more awareness. Salgado, who met Crowe through a group called Good Trouble dedicated to spreading awareness about racial inequality and diversity issues, thought the course would be an interesting way to spread awareness and gain skills for her career. She also thought it was important to be a part of stopping the spread of misinformation. 'If someone actually talked to them like a nurse or a doctor or physician, I’m sure that before the actual benefit of getting the vaccine, they’d get it themselves,' she said.

For Salgado, this information had to be spread in the community and at home. Her family, which identifies as Mexican-American, were hesitant at first to get the vaccine. But after listening to the information from Crowe and their stakeholder at St. Vincent’s, she was able to present the information to her family, which eventually decided to get vaccinated. Small changes like these are what lead to the team to wanting to have a greater impact. After discovering the steps needed to get vaccinated, the team needed ways to get people vaccinated. Following long meetings between their stakeholders, students and community members, they came up with a solution: hosting a vaccination clinic at a local church that doesn’t require identification. Holy Rosary Catholic Church, which offers mass in Spanish on Wednesdays and Sundays became the perfect place to reach people. After speaking with Father Martin Estrada, during the spring, Crowe and her team were able to host a vaccination clinic where students translated the intake forms, revised the pamphlet to let people know they didn’t need an ID and interviewed people at the clinic on what their needs were.

'We’re trying to offer people the opportunity, especially Latinos, to get the vaccine,'
Estrada said. 'I think by offering it here, people feel more comfortable, because they know the church already and comfortably know where they can go.'

That day, more than 100 were vaccinated. Through their interviews, the biggest findings they discovered were lack of insurance, cultural differences and language barriers. These findings have lead to two projects that the fall ChangeLab is looking to work on: hosting another vaccination clinic and creating a cultural sensitivity workshop for health care providers. This vaccination clinic is focused on reaching younger people, specifically those 12 and up, which is now the youngest age people are able to be vaccinated. As the church and program are trying to reach out for more Latino people to get vaccinated, the clinic is open to everyone. The clinic will be held following mass on Sept. 26 for the first dose and Oct. 17 for the second dose. At the clinic for the second dose, there will be a lottery that Latinx students can enter after receiving both doses of the vaccine. One selected student will receive a four-year scholarship to the University of Evansville that will cover full-time tuition for both fall and spring semesters.

'I’m just so excited,' said Crowe on hosting the clinic again. 'I’m just thrilled about the opportunity that not only are we helping the entire community, because the more people we get vaccinated, the quicker this thing is going to go away. '

'If someone actually talked to them like a nurse or a doctor or physician, I’m sure that before the actual benefit of getting the vaccine, they’d get it themselves.' Imelda Salgado University of Evansville student.

The University of Evansville is doing their part to try to help bolster COVID-19 vaccination rates, especially those in the Latinx community.
