Jacobsen Series continues with Spring play
KNOW THIS campus news and announcements
Got opera?! The Jacobsen Series continues Friday, at 7:30 p.m., in Schneebeck Concert Hall, with four gifted vocalists sharing a selection of beloved songs from opera and musical theater. Performers include faculty musicians Christina Kowalski and Dawn Padula, as well as Logger alumnus Ryan Bede ’05 and guest artist Jesse Nordstrom. Jinshil Yi ’14 will accompany the vocalists on piano. Admission is $10 for faculty and staff members, and free for current students. Tickets are available at tickets.pugetsound.edu.
Spring play gives some of our favorite 19th-century heroines a 21st-century makeover. You On the Moors Now, by Jaclyn Backhaus, directed by Jess K. Smith ’05, employs ridiculous wordplay, hilarious banter, and heightened stakes to give a refreshing and irreverent spin on gender norms. The show opens this weekend, with shows Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m., in Norton Clapp Theatre. Tickets are $7 with Puget Sound ID, available at tickets.pugetsound.edu.
