"Winter's Bone" Film

6:30 p.m. Feb. 18, 2014
SSB Auditorium

A girl of 17 must act as the homemaker for her younger brother and sister. This is in the backlands of the Ozarks. Her mother sits useless all day, mentally absent. Her father, who was jailed for cooking meth, is missing. She tries to raise the kids and feed them, scraping along on welfare and the kindness of neighbors. The children, like all children who are not beaten, are cheerful and energetic, and love to play. They have not learned they are disadvantaged. This unflinching Ozark Mountain girl hacks through dangerous social terrain as she hunts down her drug-dealing father while trying to keep her family intact.

Film is rated R.

Winner of the 1979 Tony Award winner for Best Play, The Elephant Man is based on the life of John Merrick, who lived in London during the latter part of the nineteenth century. A horribly deformed young man, victim of rare skin and bone diseases, he has become the star freak attraction in traveling sideshows. Found abandoned and helpless, he is admitted to London's prestigious Whitechapel hospital. Under the care of celebrated young physician Frederick Treves, Merrick is introduced to London society and slowly evolves from an object of pity to an urbane and witty favorite of the aristocracy and literati only to be denied his ultimate dream, to become a man like any other.

All performances are in the theater of the Donald D. Shook Fine Arts Building.

August 1940, New York, struggling and opportunistic writer Everett Gardner is given the chance to make a mark in the still infant comic book industry. All he has to do is create a hero. But creating a real hero turns out to be much more difficult than he expects. And while badgered by a desperate publisher and partnered with an uncooperative artist, the task might prove to be impossible. Especially with distraction of the artist's intriguing young wife. But heroes can arise in the most unexpected places ... Next Year's Man of Steel is a play about creativity, collaboration and every day courage.

All performances are in the theater of the Donald D. Shook Fine Arts Building.

Based on the 1988 film of the same name, this energetic musical centers on two competing con men living on the French Riviera.  At first, the suave and experienced Lawrence Jameson takes the less sophisticated rookie, Freddy, under his wing.  But soon, Freddy tries to compete directly with Lawrence.  The competition comes to a peak when they agree that the first man to extract $50,000 from the female heiress, Christine Colgate, wins and the other must leave town.  A hilarious battle of cons ensues that will keep audiences laughing, humming, and guessing to the end.

All performances are in the theater of the Donald D. Shook Fine Arts Building.
