Find out whodunnit with performance of “Clue”

If you’ve ever played the boardgame “Clue” or read an Agatha Christie novel, this might sound familiar: Somebody has been murdered, probably on a dark and stormy night and anyone could be the culprit. This is the routine inciting incident for the theater department’s upcoming production of “Clue,” playing virtually on April 16 and 17 at 7:30 p.m.

‘The Public’: UP theater finds solace in the strange

If you’ve never heard of “The Public” before, you’re not alone. The surrealist nature of the play has made it an obscure one, outside of typical drama circles, and the story behind it is as dramatic as the plot itself. The playwright, Frederico Garcia Lorca, was assassinated by the Spanish government before the script was fully complete. The only reason the UP Theater department can put the show on is because Lorca gave all his important documents and papers to a friend for safekeeping, before he was killed. “The Public'” was among these documents.

In spite of the fact that they haven't been able to meet in person this semester, the UP music department is putting on a concert performance via zoom on December 10th at 6pm. The concert will be made up of three individual pieces, and total 15 minutes in length.

Music plays on (even during a pandemic)

Maybe you’ve heard a roommate singing through your walls, or your neighbor playing tuba from an open window. Music halls and concert venues are closed currently due to COVID-19, but that hasn’t stopped the UP Music department from creating their usual tunes, wherever that may be.
