Time Event Title
7:25 pm-11:00 pmGirl Up dancing for charity winter dance Hall-Perrine Room of Thomas Commons
Join Slick Shoes and TWRG to dance for charity on Dec. 17 at 7:30. Using the app 'Charity Miles' we will dance to raise money and awareness for Girl Up, an organization that recognizes that girls are powerful. When they're educated, healthy, and safe, girls transform their communities. When girls stand up for girls in need, they empower each other and transform our world. As the United Nations Foundation's adolescent girl campaign, Girl Up engages girls to take action. Led by a community of nearly half a million passionate advocates raising awareness and funds, our efforts help the hardest to reach girls living in places where it is hardest to be a girl.
7:30 pmTheatre Production: Why Torture is Wrong, and the People Who Love Them Armstrong Hall
The Cornell College Department of Theatre and Dance invites audiences to Christopher Durang's knock-about dark comedy, Why Torture is Wrong, and the People Who Love Them, in the Plumb-Fleming Black Box Theatre. Directed by Janeve West, this production offers a comic critique on violence and untested political paranoia, and promises to be as absurdly hilarious as it is timely. Each night before the show and at intermission, audiences are invited to enjoy the lobby display and cash bar. Why Torture is Wrong, and the People Who Love Them runs one weekend only, Dec. 15-17 at 7:30 p.m. and Dec. 18 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $10 for adults, $7 for seniors/students/youth, and free for Cornell College faculty, staff, and students with ID. Tickets can be reserved by calling (319) 895-4293 or emailing boxoffice@cornellcollege.edu. This production is intended for mature audiences and seating is limited.
9:30 pmPost-show talk-back with Erin Davis for Why Torture is Wrong Armstrong Hall
Following the Dec. 17 show, audiences are invited to a talk-back with Erin Davis, Professor of Sociology and Anthropology, where our topic will focus on the representation of social issues in theatre and film.
