Beyond all the hustle and bustle on the Fireman Stage, in the scene shop, in costume design, as well as in the sound and lighting booth this winter, many other students have been hard at work in the Black Box Theater. In fact, the members of the cast and crew of “Love and Hate” are putting the finishing touches on their original show going up this weekend.
Inspired by Jesse Hawley’s cast-written fall show last year, “Lucky Me,” the winter Black Box production of “Love and Hate” is also written and performed by students. A cast of 13 students will share their personal vignettes through monologues, small group scenes, and ensemble pieces that will explore personal, social, and political facets of love and hate in what should be a unique and engaging show. We look forward to all they have in store for us on February 20 - 22 at 7:30 PM in the Will Parker Black Box Theater. Please call the switchboard to reserve your free seat!
Just after “Love and Hate” will be the Winter Applied Music Recital on Monday, February 24 at 6:30 PM in Lyndon South. The recitals provide a wonderful chance to see growth and change through this milestone event. The Applied Music students have been working all winter to prepare and perfect a piece or two for our enjoyment. Violet Southwick ’20 said, “I love that Applied Music allows me to dedicate an hour of every day towards something that I love. I find my time in Applied Music to be productive, therapeutic, and inspiring, and I am so excited to share what I have been working on in the recital!”
It is both an exciting and nerve-wracking process to prepare a performance piece for the public. A lot goes into deciding what to perform. The piece needs to be challenging enough to practice for many weeks, and it needs to be enjoyable for the audience. We hope you will come out and support the musicians and enjoy the variety of music presented by our talented musicians.
All in all, February provides a terrific opportunity to enjoy all the performing arts at Tabor! Take it all in!
As of today, we have suspended reunion registration. With that said, we continue to plan for Reunion Weekend, June 5-7. There is no predicting how the coronavirus will spread or when it will abate, however. We are closely monitoring developments to help us make sound, intentional decisions. In the event of cancelation, all Tabor fees associated with Reunion Weekend will be refunded.
