* UE Theatre Announces Spring 2022 Season

The University of Evansville (UE) Department of Theatre proudly presents the Spring 2022 season with two student-directed productions in the May Studio Theatre and one guest-directed production in Shanklin Theatre.

The semester kicks off with MAC BETH, by Erica Schmidt, based on the play MACBETH, by William Shakespeare, in the May Studio Theatre. Directed by senior theatre studies major Claire Himstedt, from St. Louis, MO, this new take on Shakespeare’s classic tale of bloody violence explores a symmetry with rebellious teenage girls meeting to stage the play in a parochial school’s parking lot. MAC BETH runs at 7:30 pm, on Feb. 10, 11, 12, and at 2:00 pm, on Feb. 12 and 13.

Next up is Bertolt Brecht’s THE CAUCASIAN CHALK CIRCLE, with an English version by Eric Bentley, in the May Studio Theatre, directed by senior performance major Obi Roberts, from Arvada, Colo. Originally written at the end of WWII, it retells the story of a child claimed and fought over by two mothers, resulting in one of the most riveting trials ever staged. Teeming with political overtones and a sharp look at human nature, this play runs at 7:30 pm, on Feb. 24, 25, 26, and at 2:00 pm, on Feb. 26 and 27.

The finale is HEROES OF THE FOURTH TURNING, by Will Arbery, in Shanklin Theatre.

Guest-directed by Dylan Frederick, a 2014 graduate of UE, this 2020 Pulitzer Prize Finalist in Drama is a meticulously fashioned story centering on four alumni of a conservative college whose reunion spirals into chaos over spirituality, politics, and a nearly fanatical desire to be understood. This haunting and brilliant play runs at 7:30 pm, on Apr. 8, 9, 21, 22, 23, and at 2:00 pm on Apr. 24.

Guest-director Dylan Frederick is a 2017 graduate of the Yale School of Drama and made his Broadway debut in the 2021 Tony Award-winning production of THE INHERITANCE, by Matthew López. Dylan will likely be remembered by UE audiences for playing the role of Master Harold in the 2011 smash-hit production of MASTER HAROLD…AND THE BOYS, by Athol Fugard, directed by John David Lutz. A native of Minnesota, Dylan returns to his alma mater to make his directing debut.

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 48-hours of the date on their ticket. Upon arrival at the 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, both Shanklin Theatre and the May Studio Theatre will be seated at no more than 50% capacity. It is our hope that these restrictions will allow our student actors to safely perform unmasked in both spaces.

Single ticket prices for MAC BETH and THE CAUCASIAN CHALK CIRCLE are $12 for all patrons. HEROES OF THE FOURTH TURNING tickets are $20 for adults and $18 for senior adults, students, and UE employees. 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.

* Aces battle Panthers to the wire in close contest at Ford Center

Trailing by 15 points in the second half, the University of Evansville men’s basketball team rallied to make it a 1-possession game before Northern Iowa fended off the challenge to take a 64-59 win over the Purple Aces on Wednesday evening at the Ford Center.

Leading UE (5-14, 1-7 MVC) was Evan Kuhlman and Blaise Beauchamp, who scored 13 points apiece.  Kuhlman was 5-of-9 from the field and hit three triples while Beauchamp was one off of his career scoring mark and connected on 5 of his 7 attempts.  Jawaun Newton scored 12 points while leading the team with 7 rebounds and 4 assists.  UNI (10-9, 6-3 MVC) saw AJ Green score 18 points while Nate Heise had 12 points and tied for the game high with 7 caroms.

“It was a struggle at times but there was no lack of competitiveness by our guys.  You could see that down the stretch,” UE head coach Todd Lickliter said.  “We had good contributions from everyone who played and gave ourselves a chance.  Unfortunately it is all or nothing and we came up just short.”

Northern Iowa hit their opening four shots and five of their first six on their way to an 11-3 lead just over four minutes into the game.  Shamar Givance took matters into his own hands, hitting consecutive baskets, including a triple at the 14-minute mark that started a 7-0 run.  Trailing 13-5, Givance knocked down a triple before finding Preston Phillips for an open layup.  Blaise Beauchamp completed the rally with a layup to get Evansville within one at 13-12 with 11:49 left in the half.

After the Aces grabbed the momentum, UNI regained their edge, scoring seven of the next eight points to go up 20-13.  Evansville scored just one point over a 6-minute stretch before Beauchamp took over.  The sophomore recorded eight out of ten points for his squad as the Aces rallied to tie it up at 23-23 with 4:13 left in the period. 

With the Panthers holding onto a 28-27 edge, they reeled off the final seven tallies of the period over the final minutes to take their largest lead of the game - 35-27.  Beauchamp recorded 10 points in the half while AJ Green had 13 for the Panthers.

Another strong offensive start by UNI saw them connect on their first seven attempts from the field while stretching the lead to 51-38 over the first 6+ minutes.  Over that sequence, UNI took its largest lead of 15 points (47-32).  Blake Sisley blocked a shot by Bowen Born for the first Panther miss of the half and it was Noah Frederking taking advantage of a second-chance triple on the other end with 12:45 remaining to cut the deficit to seven.

A field goal with 9:21 left put UNI up 57-48 and it was a defensive struggle for both teams from that point.  The next score would come three minutes later when Beauchamp drained his third triple of the night, but a Noah Carter free throw solidified a 60-52 edge for UNI heading into the final four minutes.  Evansville continued to fight back when Jawaun Newton grabbed an offensive rebound before converting the ensuing attempt.  On the defensive end, Preston Phillips forced a steal and Kuhlman turned it into a 3-pointer that made it a 60-57 game with 2:20 showing on the clock.

Defensive efforts by both teams were pivotal for each squad in the final minutes.  Evansville forced three turnovers in the final two minutes while the Panthers forced two UE misses along with a turnover in the next three possessions, keeping it a 3-point game.  Trae Berhow and Carter knocked down four late free throws to seal the 64-59 victory. 

A pair of road contests are on the docket for UE, starting on Saturday night with a 7 p.m. game at Missouri State.

* Women's Basketball opens weekend against Missouri State on Thursday

Back home for just the third time in 2022, the University of Evansville women's basketball team welcomes in preseason favorite Missouri State for a Thursday evening matchup at 6 PM inside Meeks Family Fieldhouse in Evansville.

Previewing the Matchup: Missouri State
• Evansville and Missouri State are meeting for the 60th time in series history with the Lady Bears owning a 45-14 advantage in the all-time series.
• Last season, Evansville and the Lady Bears met twice inside Meeks Family Fieldhouse with the visitors capturing a pair of wins in the final weekend of the regular season.
• The Lady Bears sit 35th in NET rankings, the second-highest ranked opponent for UE this season behind Iowa, who is currently 23rd.
• The Aces will be playing just their third home game since December 11 after playing six of their last eight games on the road.

Importance of Free Throws
• Thursday's contest pits two of the top 60 teams in the nation in getting to the line. Evansville is 38th in NCAA DI in free throw trips and the Lady Bears are not far behind in 58th.

Efficiency for Je'Naiya
• Through just 11 games in her Aces career, junior Je'Naiya Davis has made her name known for her ability to score from just about anywhere.
• But what many may not know about Davis is she has been incredibly efficient in scoring from all three levels.
• Davis is shooting 43.7% from the field this season, the third best percentage for the Aces and best by a pure guard.
