The Broadway Musical

Mickey Rooney said to Judy Garland “Let’s Do A Show!” But, how do you “do” a show? How do you get from “idea” to “opening night”? How is text matched to music and dance? What makes a great musical and how have musicals changed over the years? So, put on your singin’ and dancin’ shoes and come join the “show.”

NOTE: This class will not meet April 18th; last class will be April 25th

The Unvanquished: Faulkner, Courage and Southern Shenanigans

There are many great writers but only a few are loved or hated across the great divides of race, gender, class, education and orientation like William Faulkner. Whether you have read Faulkner or not, you should find this class a profitable and rewarding way of reading his work.

New Frontiers: A Senior College Lecture Series

Each year the University of Nebraska-Kearney publishes an edition of “New Frontiers” which spotlights UNK faculty researchers whose work is of significant quality, value and interest. For each of the six weeks of this class, participants will hear a lecture from a “New Frontiers” scholar and then have the opportunity to have an open discussion with the scholar. Additionally, we will host two undergraduate students who have gained special recognition for their work through the Undergraduate Research Program at UNK. Among the topics we shall hear are “Framing the Future for Fuels (Ethanol)”, “Printmaking and Drawing”, “The Search for Extraterrestrial Life”, and “Motivated by Mint.”.

NOTE: This class will not meet March 22nd; last class will be April 26th
