3 APPLAUSE, APPLAUSE! Welcome to our 2013-14 Season! Thank you for attending today’s performance. Your presence is truly the catalyst for the success of our inaugural performances on the William Peace University campus and our vibrant season this year! 2011 marked an expansion of WPU’s programs with musical theatre leading the charge. Our talented students, artists, actors, singers and dancers, as well as guest artists, performed with rave reviews. And, we hope you will be with us each step of the way this year to “pack our houses” for these talented, aspiring performers. Of course, as seasons change, so does our program. Thanks to WPU’s Arts and Events Committee, made up of community members, students, faculty and staff, we are offering an extensive selection of theatre and musical theatre productions, guest speakers, a lunch and learn series, conversations, concerts, academic programming and more. We are also trying several new things, and we need your feedback. For the first time, we will offer tickets to all events with both assigned and general admission seating. Varying programs, prices and free options have has been sprinkled together, and we want to know how we are doing. If you like a performance, tell us and don’t be shy. It will help us make your WPU experience the best it can be. After all, our vision is to provide our students with a venue to share their talents alongside worldclass artists, lecturers and musicians and to give you, the audience member, something to come back for at William Peace University. You asked and we listened! With your feedback from last season, we have also found multiple ways for you to get involved this year. At each performance, you will find a sign-up sheet for volunteer opportunities, as well as a gift envelope in your program. Your support helps us provide future programming. You can also contact me personally at Julie.Ricciardi@peace.edu. Write it down…I want to hear from you! Of course, we couldn’t do any of this without the great support of our community partners: Sara Jo Allen Manning ’58 ’60, Duke Energy, First Citizens Bank and the many other generous sponsors you’ll see in this program, as well as each of you who have either attended a performance or made a gift. We hope you will make WPU your arts destination this year to see The Mystery of Edwin Drood, a lecture with Peter Mandaville or one of our esteemed faculty, like Dr. Vinnie Melomo from our Anthropology Department. If you enjoy Spoken Word, Bluegrass, Jazz or comedy – you also won’t want to miss our very own Peace alumna, Chelsea Lately writer and comedienne Fortune Feimster ‘00’02. Or, try something new and expand your mind. Get in on the act by signing up as a season ticketholder or join the Center Stage Club with a gift to support WPU’s arts programming. We look forward to meeting and sharing in this terrific season with you! Julie E. Ricciardi, Vice President for the Office of Engagement Do you know a student interested in Musical Theatre or Theatre? If so, we would love to meet them. We hold audition dates throughout the year, in addition to individual meetings. To learn more, please contact Professor Jason Dula at 919.508.2354 or Jason.Dula@peace.edu.
