Review of Its Ghostly Workshop
Writer-in-Residence Ron Smith's new book,
Its Ghostly Workshop,
reviewed by Jeffrey Beck
, Kean University. To learn more about Ron Smith,
Here is a sample of the excellent review: "
Its Ghostly Workshop
is aptly titled: a work of haunting poetic craftsmanship. And what kind of haunting is it? Ron Smith constructs the seven sections and 45 poems in the volume deliberately to haunt—with the specters of history, poetic tradition, boyhood memory, palpable doubt, and transient pleasures. Edward Teller, Edgar Allan Poe, Ezra Pound, T.S. Eliot, Pauline Bonaparte, Mickey Mantle, Jesse Owens, Leni Riefenstahl, and other ghosts make their apparitions in these lyrics, which layer historical facts with poignant, present desires, and frequent allusions to artistic monuments. It is a heady haunting, always with humor and poetic skill."
Middle School Choir - Music in the Park
The Middle School Choir recently competed in the Music in the Parks competition at Busch Gardens in Williamsburg. The Choir earned a "Superior" rating from the judges for their performance. "Superior" is the highest rating a performance group can receive. In addition, the Choir won the "Overall" Middle School award for having the highest score of all middle school/junior high school groups. St. Catherine's Middle School Choirs also competed and enjoyed the theme park with the boys.
Ampersand Presents: Noises Off | May 2-4
May 2-4, at 7:30 PM in McVey Theatre. Tickets: $5 in advance, $7 at the door.
Called the funniest play ever,
, by Michael Frayn, is a madcap romp inside a theatre company as they prepare, and present, a really bad British farce. Things go from bad to worse to utter disaster in what promises to be one of the most laugh filled evenings of theatre you will ever experience!
Due to mature themes, and some language, this play is appropriate for ages 12 and older.
