    Amanda's Bio:
    I grew up in the Twin Cities, but now live up in Ely, MN near the BWCA, where my family has been for the last 7 years. I have three brothers, who I adore, and I enjoy fishing, playing basketball, and rough housing with them whenever I can. My mom has been a daycare provider since I was born, which served as inspiration for me to pursue a degree in Elementary education. I also love to paint, draw, and DANCE! I have been dancing for twenty years and am a dance instructor in Superior, WI....I can't imagine a life without it!

Resurrection Blues: See it!

I took advantage of tonight’s free preview of Resurrection Blues put on by our very own Saint Scholastica staff and students, and I must say it was no disappointment.  The play in and of itself is witty, well-written, and has satirical humor lurking around every corner.  If you are looking for a good way to spend an evening, this is definitely the way to go.  The cast is made up of a great mix of personalities, including Kevin Walsh, Brian (Professor) Matuszak, Kealey Baron, and Gretchen Ringdahl.  Also, watch out for the hilarious Dave Orman who plays General Felix Barriaux.  This guy had me almost falling out of my chair laughing on a couple different occasions.

What’s it about?  The Scholastica website does a good job of summing up the major plot:

When a mysterious, mystical man starts to gather followers throughout the country, the local dictator is not at all amused. Followers continue to amass, dedicated to the man who can perform miracles and glow. Fearing a revolution, the elusive man is captured and sentenced to be executed. Anticipating a potentially lucrative media deal, the dictator sells exclusive broadcast rights to the execution to an American media franchise.

I highly recommend this play and feel that if you have a night to spare, go see it.  You definitely won’t regret it.  Tickets are only $5 for students, so it won’t even break the bank.  Cheaper than a night out for fast food!  You can’t beat that. 

The show will be playing this weekend on Friday and Saturday @ 7:30 and Sunday @ 2:00.  The play is scheduled to run through the 23rd of this month.

P.S. If you have any classes you need to attend a play for, there are even study guides available for you to take upon attendance!   That should definitely aid in your process of writing that reflection paper!
