Black Comedy: Groping Around in the Dark with the Tech Theatre Company
The Tech Theatre season is off to a fun, lighthearted start with a laugh-out-loud farce! In this hilarious fast-paced comedy, lovesick and desperate sculptor, Brindsley Miller has embellished his apartment with furniture and object d’artes “borrowed” from the absent antique collector next-door, hoping to impress his fiancée’s pompous father and wealthy art dealer. Everything goes wrong when a fuse is blown leaving the apartment in total darkness. Only we, the audience, are privy to the riotous antics that happen when the lights go out.
The Department of Visual and Performing Arts is pleased to present a comedy by Peter Shaffer, Black Comedy, in the McArdle Theatre for two weeks, Friday – Saturday, October 11-12, and Thursday – Saturday, October 17-19, at 7:30 PM each night.
Jazz as Protest Music
Join us backstage at the Rozsa Center, where Michigan Tech’s three jazz ensembles will perform music from Jazz’s storied history, as well as works written and performed in the last decade. The stage of the Rozsa is transformed into an historic jazz club with vintage atmosphere, complete with café tables and a cash bar. The intimate club atmosphere is a perfect setting for the Workshop Big Band, Research & Development (R&D) Big Band, and the Jazz Lab Band to loosen the reins on creativity and capture the flow of jazz. Join Michigan Tech’s new Director of Jazz Studies Adam Meckler and the Michigan Tech Jazz ensembles for Backstage Jazz: Jazz as Protest Music, at the Rozsa Friday and Saturday night, October 11th & 12th, 7:30 PM. Works featured will include those by Sonny Rollins, Dave Douglas, Rebirth Brass Band, Count Basie, Max Roach, Billie Holiday, and Tech’s new Director of Jazz Studies Adam Meckler.
You’ve kicked around that great idea of yours for a while and want to pitch it. Now is your chance! The Idea Pitch Competition gives students a chance to take their ideas live and do just that. Students have two minutes to share their favorite innovation and/or disruptive idea in an interactive community setting. Present alone or with a team of up to two people. A judges panel comprised of community members will ask questions and provide feedback after your pitch. Top teams will be awarded cash prizes.
There will be a 6 p.m. pre-pitch meet-and-greet reception in the GLRC 201 lobby to precede the pitch competition, which will run from 7- 9 p.m..
The Van Pelt & Opie Library hosts workshops on a wide range of topics that will help you with your research, classwork, and teaching. During the week of October 14, join us for the following workshops:
Who owns the copyright to my dissertation? When using an image from another work, do I need copyright permission? If I do, how much does it cost? What are the benefits of making my thesis open access? At the end of this workshop participants will be able to identify protected works, choose the best method for incorporating them into their work, and make informed decisions on open access publishing.
Workshop attendees will learn how to get the most relevant materials you need for a research paper or project in less time by utilizing the databases, journals, and other materials the library has to offer. We will cover services specific to Michigan Tech as well as a variety of searching techniques and strategies to help you get the most out of the library and your research, regardless of your discipline!
