Into the Theater for a Woodland Experience!

Posted on Saturday, November 10th, 2012 by

Free entertainment is crucial for a college student. I can afford the occasional Tutti Frutti run, but movie and dinner outings do not always fit in the budget. Here at Concordia, performances are free for students, so instead of driving through the misty gloom, I just had to walk across campus to the theater building to see a great performance tonight.

I had fond memories of Into the Woods because my high school previously performed it. However, this show was quite a treat because I had the opportunity of seeing my fellow Cobbers display their talents. The show has a little something for everyone because it incorporates fairy tales that the general public knows, but a not-so-happy-and-strange twist on them. It held my attention and I was constantly amazed by the singers high notes and energy.

College isn’t cheap. But finding ways to have fun and save money is important. Go see Into the Woods!

I was very happy to catch a picture with the charming prince, Grant!

    I remember when Eastview High School performed “Into The Woods” and it was spectacular. I bet the cobber version was just as good! Wish I could have joined you.

    I had the opportunity to see “Into The Woods” this weekend and was very impressed with not only the talented students, but also the direction of Professor Thomas and the brilliant designs of Eddy Barrows. Grant’s performance was a stand-out!

I may have the most generic Scandinavian name but I like to think I’m far from ordinary.

For 20 years of my life, I have rocked the suburbs like Jon Bon Jovi did, except that he was talented (as Ben Folds would say). In high school, I was involved in speech, debate, concert band, marching band, and volunteer work. To this day, I enjoy tossing the Frisbee disc with friends, reading an absurd amount of books, writing poetry and listening excessively to every genre of music excluding country.

At Concordia, I play the flute in the Symphonic Band, play ultimate frisbee, am an orientation leader, am a leader in science academy, work for the admissions office, do biology research, and am working to bring an organization to campus called Girls In Real Life which is meant to improve the self esteem of women everywhere. I also enjoy volunteering at Sanford hospital on the weekends. My majors are biology and history with a minor in chemistry and I will be graduating in 2015. I hope to join the peace corps after college and then attend graduate school for public health and possibly law.

In the future and in the present, my main goal is to make a difference in the world. I believe people are inherently good and I search for the upside in every situation. People have described me as a ray of sunshine, but I’d just say I am an opportunist who believes in love and lifelong happiness.
