UNBC Drama Club Presents: Peter Pan and Wendy

Posted by on Apr 3, 2017 in Arts, Culture | 0 comments

Tierney Watkinson | Team Member   Join the UNBC Drama Club as they delve into the world of Neverland in their upcoming show, Peter Pan and Wendy! If you, like me, love JM Barrie’s original story then you do not want to miss this Doug Rand stage adaptation. Be prepared to laugh along with this comedy adventure as Wendy and her little brothers follow the whimsical Peter into Neverland. Let the extremely talented UNBC Drama Club transport you into this beloved world of pirates, fairies, and Lost Boys. The set pieces, which I have caught glimpses of in the Clubs Room, are truly impressive and beautiful. The production, directed by Jake Goertz, will be well worth watching. Starring: Ferris Vasko as Peter Pan Keone Gourlay as Wendy Tyree Corfe as John Emily Brown as Michael Adaeze Obeta as Mrs....

UNBC Musicals: Another Year

Posted by on Mar 29, 2017 in Arts, Culture, UNBC, Volume 23 | 0 comments

Tierney Watkinson | Team Member   Another year has come and gone for UNBC’s Musical Productions group. As I write this, we have four more shows to perform. Last week, we had a few glitches with the set during our first show but the musical has really come together. This week of shows will be our best yet. For this article, painfully aware that I am still neglecting to mention a number of members who also worked tirelessly to make these shows a reality, I wanted to give shout-outs to the Musical Production Club’s Technical Crew. To Carmen Campbell, who played piano for the AVPS show and who has been a member of the club since the very beginning. She has starred as a crazed fan in Dr Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, Buffy the Vampire Slayer herself in the club’s...

Rain in January

Tierney Watkinson | Team Member things I used to believe were impossible like rain in January winter water freezing becoming ice a deadly mirror taking over making me invisible crumbling slowly ripping apart as I try to remember warmth bones splitting beneath my skin burning even as I succumb to numbing cold ripping deep wounds caverns within me forcing cracks within myself straining under weights I should not have to bear this self doubt and its iron claws slowly tearing out my insides what once kept me alive pulsing pouring out as I am paralyzed I think I stopped screaming a long time ago but maybe I’ve just stopped hearing...

Changes

Sarah Green| Contributor The air is crisp As he walks through the clearing. It’s too late. No one can stop him. His strides show purpose. He moves towards the group Standing clustered around the fire. A few faces turn As he walks towards the smallest figure. She stands slightly apart. Obviously waiting for him. He draws a breath. This is it. When she sees him, Her amber eyes light up. For a moment, He falters. Disarmed by her beauty. But it’s too late to change his mind. He takes a step forward, Clears his throat, And changes his life...

Northern Living

Posted by on Nov 16, 2016 in Arts, Culture | 0 comments

Katie Hansen | Contributor   The Northern Folk can smell the snow today. It’s time to gather up the winter gear; They pull out their shovels to get ready. The Children are delighted snow is near!   The first of the white flakes begins to fall; Northern Folk rush to get their snow tires on. Frosty the Snowman is up standing tall. All signs of living vegetation, gone.   More than six months of winter is too long! They wish for the warmth and the summer fun! The cold weather does not seem to belong; Why can’t this frozen season be all done?   When winter ends the Northern Folks will say, I hope next year the snow does not...
