Rambler Weekly Playlist and Blog: February 23rd

Art by Moira Hedrick

In light of Transy Choir’s Cabaret on Sunday, and Mr. Burns premiering this week, I decided to make this week’s playlist villains and theater themed. This playlist includes a variety of theater and Broadway-style songs, both contemporary and classic.

Transy’s campus is buzzing with theater, music, and art events this weekend! TU’s Theater Program has worked countless hours to put on Mr. Burns: A Post-Electric Play, and I’m sure they would love to see you there. Mr. Burns will be performed seven times:

  • Thursday, February 22nd at 7:30 PM,
  • Friday, February 23rd at 7:30 PM
  • Saturday, February 24th at 7:30 PM
  • Thursday, March 1st at 7:30 PM
  • Friday, March 2nd at 7:30 PM
  • Saturday, March 3rd at 7:30 PM
  • Sunday, March 4th at 2:00 PM

This dark comedy is loosely based on an episode of The Simpsons, so if you like the TV show, be prepared to love the play. I’ve also heard that even if you don’t watch The Simpsons, the show will still be entertaining and fun.

We also have the grand opening of Lavish! on Friday at 5 PM, which is an exhibit in Morlan Gallery by our very own Associate Arts Professor Zoe Strecker and other artists. They’ve put a great amount of time and effort into this exhibit, so please come see their art!

Another must-see event this weekend is TU Choir ensembles’ Cabaret! Join us Sunday at 7:30 PM in Haggin Auditorium for Villains! This year’s cabaret includes fun choreography and costumes and songs by various villains!

We also have a faculty recital on Saturday, February 24th, by our very own Adjunct Professor of Music Chris Roseland. He has been teaching here since the spring of 2017, and is an accomplished guitarist who will be performing a program of all Spanish music in Old Morrison Chapel at 4 PM!

Come out and support all of your local artists, musicians, and actors this weekend!
