CURRICULAR CONNECTIONS Millersville University’s Office of Visual and Performing Arts supports faculty members in their teaching by offering experiential learning through artists sharing their talents and knowledge with students. We are committed to supporting the academic mission of Millersville University through the power of the arts, fostering connections between MU classes and visiting artists. If you haven’t already discovered the breadth and variety of presentations at our performing and visual arts centers, we strongly encourage you to take full advantage of our world-class music, theater, and dance engagements as an educational tool for your students. This guide serves as a resource, highlighting a number of upcoming spring semester performances and the courses that may have curricular connections to those performances. You may recognize others. Please peruse our full 2017-18 brochure of events available in hard copy or online at ArtsMU.com.

VISITING ARTIST RESIDENCIES Guest artists offer Millersville students and faculty members unforgettable personal interactions via classroom visits, master classes, panel discussions, lecture-demonstrations, and social events. Each term, we offer a number of opportunities for the campus to interact with the visiting artists who come to perform. These occasions can both enrich the performance experience and illuminate the artistic, social, political or spiritual aspect of the artists’ work for your students. A schedule of artist availability for such complementary programming can be found on the following pages. E-mail Barry Kornhauser, Assistant Director of Campus & Community Engagement at Barry.Kornhauser@Millersville.edu or call him at x7812 if you see a curricular connection we can pursue together. Your students will thank you for it!

FREE TICKETS Abundant research has confirmed that experience with the arts fosters achievement and growth both in academia and in life. With your help, the Millersville University Office of Visual and Performing Arts strives to provide such opportunities for our students. If you are interested in inviting your whole class to any of our performances listed in the guide as part of your program of study, we will gladly provide free tickets to all of those students (and you, as well), subject to availability. Just e-mail Lydia Yeager of the Student Services Office at lyeager@ssi.millersville.edu to make arrangements. To assure seating, we recommend that you book at least one week prior to the scheduled performance date. (You may also cancel a booking up to one week prior.)

“Moneys is your suit…” as Shylock, the money lender, says to the merchant, Antonio. This Venice is all about money where buying, selling, lending and borrowing is the name of the game. Where ugly prejudice and violence against Shylock, “The Jew”, is acceptable behavior…until his money is needed. Where the outcast who has silently suffered this abuse his entire life is finally driven to revenge. This is a powerful play that encourages us to dig beneath the shiny surface and face ourselves. Presented by the People's Shakespeare Project.

Based on true events, the story focuses on one of the girls as she fights for her day in court. This moving and inspiring play offers an unflinching look at the American obsession with health, wealth and the commercialization of science.

Ware Center For years, Sonia Warshawski (90) has been an inspirational public speaker at schools and prisons, where her stories of surviving the Holocaust as a teenager have inspired countless people who once felt their own traumas would leave them broken forever. But when Sonia is served an eviction notice for her iconic tailor shop (in a dead mall), she's confronted with an agonizing decision: either open up a new shop, or retire. For a woman who admits she stays busy "to keep the dark parts away," facing retirement dredges up fears she'd long forgot she had, and her horrific past resurfaces.
