October 10, 2002 In Brief




Theatre outreach

Several new courses in the Department of Theatre will be offered to non-theatre students.

TPER 201 is an introductory class in theatre performance in which students learn the basics of acting techniques for the stage based on the work of Uta Hagen. Students also learn skills useful in any public speaking or interpersonal environment.

TDEV 498 is a course in community theatre with project development and outcomes, designed to integrate diverse communities and explore cultural barriers through drama. This course is offered in collaboration with Teesri Duniya Theatre and encourages senior students in various fields to share their experiences and network within the community.

For course details, contact the Theatre Department, 848-4747.


Irish festivities in Concert Hall

CBC Radio and Concordia will present a lively evening of entertainment with an Irish flavour on Thursday, March 13, in the Oscar Peterson Concert Hall, on the Loyola Campus.

On the program are the CBC Radio Arts Choir under the direction of Cathy Richards; readings by CBC Radio personalities, and songs and music by Beverly McGuire, Linda Morrison and Alan Jones and his ensemble.

Come and enjoy yourself — and then listen all over again when the show is broadcast on CBC Radio on St. Patrick’s Day, March 17.

Proceeds will go toward supporting the activities of the Centre for Canadian Irish Studies, based at Concordia. These include new courses in Irish studies, community outreach events, lectures (see the Backpage for the latest speaker), library materials, publications and scholarships.

Tickets may be bought through the Foundation, at 1590 Dr. Penfield Ave., SB-119, Montreal H3G 1C5, or at the door for $10 (or more, if you’d like to make a donation). Hurry to buy your tickets, there is a limited supply available! The concert will start at 8 p.m.

Speaking of things Irish, Concordia can proudly claim the grand marshal of the St. Patrick’s Day Parade this year.

The parade takes place along Ste. Catherine St. on Sunday, March 16, and Concordia’s own Michael Kenneally, director of the Canadian Irish Studies Centre, will be the leading official.
