The Inver Hills Theatre Department presents: The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged)

Can you really cover thirty-seven Shakespeare plays in less than two hours? This fast-firing comedy does just that as it parodies all of the Shakespeare plays (plus the sonnets!). This play is full of energy as the characters run across the stage and keep you guessing how they will pull off the next play.  All 37 plays in an hour and a half, including Hamlet 4 times; a farcical romp through the Bard’s entire canon that must be seen to be believed.  The Inver Hills Theatre Department presents: The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) at 7:30pm in the Fine Arts Theater on February 27, 28 and March 6, 7.

Donate to the Mobile Food Pantry

Help your fellow students in need.  Please donate non-perishable items to the Mobile Food Pantry. Purple collections bins are at the entrances to every college building except for the Library.  The amount of food collected so far this year has not met the needs of our students.  Let’s catch up quickly by bringing items and dropping them in the purple bins. The VIBE club collects the food on a regular basis.  Thanks to all of you for what you can do to help others.
