* UE Theatre Presents HEROES OF THE FOURTH TURNING

The University of Evansville Theatre closes their spring 2022 season with Will Arbery’s HEROES OF THE FOURTH TURNING. A 2020 Pulitzer Prize Finalist in Drama, this haunting play is a meticulously crafted 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 production opens on Friday, April 8, at 7:30 p.m., in Shanklin Theatre. Additional performances are 7:30 p.m. on April 9, 21, 22, 23, and at 2:00 p.m., on April 24.

HEROES OF THE FOURTH TURNING is guest-directed by Dylan Frederick, a 2014 alumnus of UE. Joy Weidenhamer, a senior theatre studies major from Omaha, Neb., serves as the associate director; Robert Tintoc, a 2006 alumnus, serves as the guest scenic designer; Assistant Professor Sarah J. Smith is the costume designer; Associate Professor Stephen Boulmetis is the lighting designer; Araceli Ramirez serves as the guest sound designer; Professor Diane Brewer is the dramaturg; Moira Cassiday, a senior stage management major from Nashville, Ind., is the stage manager, and Assistant Professor Mitchell L. Critel serves as the technical director.

The cast features Delaney Ross, a first-year performance major from Keller, Texas as Emily; Gabriel Smothers, a junior performance major from Casper, Wyo., as Kevin; Becky Rusch, a senior performance major from Newark, Del., as Teresa; McAllister Reed Stowell, a junior performance major from Lakewood, Colo., as Justin; and Delanie Kitzman, a senior performance major from Tomball, Texas, as Gina.

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, and remain masked during the performance. It is our hope that these restrictions will allow our student actors to safely perform unmasked.

Adult ticket prices are $20, and $18 for senior adults, non-UE students, and UE employees. UE students may obtain one free student rush ticket beginning at 12 p.m. on the day of the performance they wish to attend.

Hello Aces!

My name is Shraya Rao. I'm a senior Psychology major. My research partner, Sadie Scovern, and I are conducting a survey for Research Methods this semester. Our research is regarding the impact of listening to music on creativity, and we are looking to recruit college students across different majors. Most of the students who have participated, thus far, are within the Psychology department, and we really need more music students. If you are a music major, would you please consider taking our survey? Participation should take approximately 5-10 minutes. Some professors are offering 1 point of extra credit for filling out the survey, so ask them, if you're interested.

Here is the link to our survey: https://uoebusiness.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_6x2pAdgkF2D8r66

* Employee Volunteers Needed for CDEI Prom

Hello everyone! As some of you may know, the CDEI in collaboration with SAB is holding a Prom on April 1st, 2022! This collaboration came together as restrictions are lessening and we realized many of our students were not able to attend an actual in-person, high school Prom! So, we decided to throw one for all students!

Prom will be held on April 1st in Eykamp Hall from 8:00pm- 11:30pm! Following Prom we will be shuttling students to Bob Walthers, where we have rented the space from 12:00am- 3:00am! Students will have access to inside and outside mini-golf, karaoke, bingo, mini-bowling, laser tag, and so much more!

Since this is a Prom for our students, I want to keep student volunteers at a minimum if not a complete zero for the night of and that means I need employee volunteers! Volunteer needs are listed below!

Prom 8-11:30pm

Bartenders (we will have a mocktail bar with sparkling juice, soda and water)

Photo Booth Attendants (we will have two photo drops with Ipad stations for photos)

Check-In Attendants (will need ticket/ guest list checkers)

Security (we will need additional people to check/ be stationed at specific doors to ensure no one is sneaking in or bringing any beverages into Prom)

Bob Walthers 12-3:00am

Shuttle Ticket Checkers (we will need individuals at UE checking tickets before students board the shuttle to ensure they have an actual ticket to attend Bob Walthers after party)

Bob Walthers Ticket Checkers (we will need individuals stationed at Bob Walther's checking tickets from people who may be electing to drive themselves over and not taking the shuttle)

Karaoke Attendant/ MC (we will be purchasing/ renting a Karaoke Machine and running Karaoke ourselves, and need individuals willing to help MC/ run this fun activity)

Food Attendants (in addition to Bob Walther's cafe being open, we will be purchasing and bringing in pizza and beverages and will need individuals willing to help set-up and monitor food rooms)

If you are interested, able and willing to volunteer for Prom, please reach out by email Abagail Catania at ac532@evansville.edu and indicate which (if any) specific volunteer opportunities you are interested in!

Thank you in advance! I know our students are really excited about this night! :)

Athletics

* Caleb Wassmer paces UE men at Butler

Caleb Wassmer finished Monday's opening round of the Butler Spring Invitational with an even 70 to pace the University of Evansville men's golf team.

Originally scheduled for two rounds, Monday was limited to one round of 18 due to the weather at Highland Country Club. 

Wassmer birdied two holes on the back nine to clinch the even par round.  He is tied for the 8th position.  Finishing the day at 1-over was Dallas Koth.  Birdies on the 17th and 18th holes saw him card a 71 to rank in a tie for 11th.

Third on the team and sitting in an 18th-place tie is Isaac Rohleder.  He carded a 2-over 72.  Henry Kiel completed the day with an 80 and was followed by Nicholas Gushrowski and Carson Parker.  They completed the day with rounds of 81 and 85, respectively.

Sitting at 1-under for the tournament, Valparaiso leads the team standings.  As a team, the Beacons posted a 279 and enters the final day with a 7-shot lead over Butler.  Youngstown State and Green Bay are tied for third with a 290. 

Evansville is right in the thick of the battle, ranking 8th with a 293.  The Purple Aces are just three out of third place.  Two players are tied atop the leaderboard with a 2-under 68.  On Tuesday, the teams will play the final round.
