19th Annual Theatre Forum: Golden Ages
November 4-6
Golden Ages: The Theatre of England and Spain in the Age of Shakespeare and Cervantes

Called Golden Ages, the Forum will present talks, performances, recitals, research projects and lecture-demonstrations to compare the Spanish theatre of Miguel de Cervantes (creator of Don Quixote), and the English theatre of William Shakespeare. Both these writers lived in a glorious time, both dominated their national theatres, and both died in 1616, four hundred years ago this year.

Highlights of the 2016 Forum will include the presentation of prize-winning student research projects and the world premiere of a one-act comic opera. Called Two Cells in Sevilla, the opera was written by father and son team Marec Bela Steffens and Walter Steffens and is co-produced by The Greenbriar Consortium in Houston, Texas. The opera's characters include Cervantes, his great colleague Tirso de Molina (creator of the Don Juan legend), and features a letter from their English contemporary William Shakespeare.

Presenters from all over the country include Tom Foral, Felicia Londre, Vern Sutton, Ann Thompson, Sonja Bruzauskas, Chesley Krohn, and Kate Pogue.

Taking full advantage of the picturesque Festival Hill Campus, the three-day Theatre Forum also offers a tour of grounds and buildings, morning walks with Ann Thompson, and appetizing meals in the Victorian-style Menke House dining hall, as well as an open-air lunch in the lush Menke gardens on Saturday. Though casual dress is the norm for events, formal dress is encouraged for the Saturday evening reception in the Menke House Parlours followed by a gourmet dinner in the dining hall.

Leon Hale - Book Signing
November 19


Leon Hale s well-known gift for warmth and humor finds the ideal subject in this personal recollection of the Christmases he has known throughout his long life. Whether Hale is scrambling to put together a new toy for his children on Christmas Eve, making an unscheduled visit to his own aging parents, or reliving his family s fraught holiday on a hardscrabble sheep farm during the Great Depression, the unique sensibility that has endeared him to generations of readers shines through every word. These are stories to savor by oneself or to read out loud to loved ones of all ages during the holiday season, when we discover again in our own memories the reasons why this time of year is so special.
