The first thing you notice upon entering the stadium styled sanctuary, is the focus on the stage; very theatrical. To the left of the stage, there is a large drop down screen for people to follow along with the lyrics when the singing has begun. Hanging behind the band on the main stage, is a “bohemian” or
Friday Night Live at the Royal Ontario Museum began in 2012. This unique and contemporary event provides patrons with live entertainment, food and drink as they revel in the wonders the museum has to offer. Carrie Martin’s aim is to attract at least 3,500 visitors for the grand opening and maximize profits.
Imagine a place where a collection of Victorian architecture rubs shoulders with hip, one-of-a-kind studios, galleries, shops, cafes and restaurants. When historical industrial buildings meet big-city sophistication, you can only be in one place: Welcome to Toronto’s Distillery District. Once home to the Gooderham & Worts Distillery, the District harbors the city’s most inspirational artisans, maestros, entrepreneurs and artists. The timeless streets of this vibrant neighborhood combine the romantic atmosphere of European patio and pedestrian districts with stunning 21st century creativity. With its growing cultural scene and harmonious blend of old and new, it’s no surprise that the Distillery District hosts the annual Toronto Christmas Market.
For my project, I chose to tour the European section of the Dallas Museum of Art. I visited the DMA on Friday 11th, as the museum was introducing a new portrait of a man from a vendor. The museum, curated by Gavin Delahunty, is situated snugly in the heart of Downtown Dallas. The exhibit presented many artists and let the viewer’s imagination take them back in time and immerse them into the art.
Upon entering the building, there are the astounding sounds of music. Arias sung by students upstairs waft down into the lobby. Fellow students jokingly sing their favorite show tunes; even the receptionist will join in if the tune is catchy enough. A flat screen TV accents the room with HD sound and visual quality of last year’s performance of Porgy and Bess. In fact, the entirety of the SVAC’s lobby is decorated with tokens from past performances—whether it be photographs of performers, posters headlining previous shows, or even costumes standing tall in glass containers. To them, the performers are heroes, individuals to look up to, and the epitome of what a performer should strive to be.

The small car pulled into the driveway of the frat house. 8:15 was the time; the party was already started. Mark noticed his friends’ cars were there as he got out of his own and hurried to the door.
Sean is very excited to see his piece come to life. “I’m very, very excited. This is the first piece of choreographed here at college. And I’ve only ever choreographed two pieces before. I’ve never been more proud,” said Sean.
Our company will workshop the project over several months with fine local and regional actors, guiding them to the truth within the given circumstances of each scene. At that point, we'll match this realistic foundation of performance with an inspired, contemporary production designer (who understands minimalism, projection and the abstract/non-traditional use of an environment) to create a freshly immediate
2016 starts with a bang as three shows are to perform in January. The Hit Men: Former Stars of Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons will sing their classic hits January 7. Later in the month, Western music Grammy hall of famers Sons of the Pioneers will perform January 23. And to finish out the month on January 30, Utah’s own Repertory Dance Theatre will trek to the theatre as they celebrate 50 year of performing modern
Bits of newspaper gracefully flew down the illuminated road like forgotten confetti strewn after a wedding. Splashing down gingerly, the moonlight displayed its opalescent silver glow - the light giving an illusion of glitter showering upon the wooden houses like fallen stars. Towering over the neighborhood with a sense of satisfaction, were a monumental forest of trees that all had something “unique” about them.
A group of us Arts and Music students used the day on Wednesday to go into the city to visit the Boston Museum of Fine Arts. It was a cold, breezy day so we were all bundled up in jackets and hats. As we got off the E train and walked toward the museum, its appearance was not what I expected it to be. The museum was an elegant, beautiful building made of what looked to be marble; not the big, brick monstrosity I had expected. Once we walked into the museum, it was even more elegant on the inside. The marble staircase had sculptures on each side leading up to the rotunda where white Christmas lights were strung around the banister in decoration for the Christmas season.
