EASTERN UNIVERSITY THEATRE AND YES! AND... COLLABORATIVE ARTS PRESENT IT'S ABOUT TIME!

Sometimes things can't be left up to Fate. Sometimes you find yourself locked in an invisible prison by an evil lunch lady and her silent sidekick. Sometimes you find out that Father Time’s son (the future) has been kidnapped and now the world is stuck in a loop tearing the fabric of time. Sometimes a rag-tag team of ordinary kids have to follow a giant talking bird behind the veil of time to save the world(s). Sometimes heroes come from the least expected people. Sometimes... anything can happen, and it does in this year’s Winter Sort of Thing: It's About Time!

Yes! And… Collaborative Arts and Eastern University Theatre are proud to present this year’s Winter Sort of Thing production, It’s About Time!, January 29- February 1. Performances will take place in McInnis Auditorium on the Eastern University campus at 1300 Eagle Road, St. Davids, PA 19087.

It’s About Time! is a raucous ride through space and time that the whole family is sure to enjoy.

It’s About Time! runs one weekend only, opening on January 29 and closing February 1.

PALMER THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY OFFERS TIJUANA TRAVEL COURSE

Palmer Theological Seminary is organizing for the 8th consecutive year a travel course for graduate students seeking to gain a greater understanding of how global issues affect our local communities in the US and viceversa, and we are extending an invitation to students to participate in this learning experience. 

The course entitled CHHM640 Ministry on the Borderline : Tijuana travel course will take place from January 10-18, 2015. It focuses on the interrelationship between immigration, economic disparity and community and family functioning.  We will be reflecting particularly on the most current immigration crisis of unaccompanied minors entering the US to try to understand what is happening and how it sheds light into some of the larger issues affecting immigration. Students are able to receive academic credit for the course via cross-registration at the Seminary and will be expected to cover travel costs in addition to tuition fees. 

For more detailed information please contact Dr. Mayra Picos Lee at mpicosle@eastern.edu

Over the years, students have reported these travel courses have been instrumental in helping them understand situations from a variety of perspectives and thus have contributed to preparing them to work among diverse communities in the US and elsewhere.

Please note that the deadline for registration for non-Seminary students is November 26, 2015.
