  • - On Tuesday, Sept. 27, the public is invited to view a unique, interactive portrait exhibit at Frostburg State University – with words drawn on skin to display simple, powerful messages – and listen to some of the deeper stories behind the images. The subjects of those portraits and stories may even look familiar to many in Western Maryland, as each is a student, faculty or staff member at FSU.
    The free public “Storytelling and Photo Reveal” event will be held in the Alice R. Manicur Assembly Hall of the Lane University Center from 7 to 8 p.m. Afterward, select #DearFrostburg images will be shared with a global audience by Dear World, the award-winning creative team behind the event.
    Dear World asks its portrait subjects one question: “If you had one story to share with the world, what would you say?” The resulting images have been published in over 30 countries and featured by many major media outlets. Beyond short messages on their skin, Dear World invites subjects to share the deeper stories behind those messages.
    These #DearFrostburg images and stories will showcase for the world the powerful identities that make Frostburg a special place. Through such storytelling, Dear World seeks to unite people by broadening their understanding of themselves, their colleagues and the world around them.
    The Dear World project started as Dear New Orleans in 2009, when founder Robert Fogarty asked residents of New Orleans to write a “love note” to their city on their bodies and let him take their pictures. Those powerful images inspired Fogarty to widen his project to the whole world, and the team has since photographed more than 50,000 individuals.
    Dear World has documented numerous celebrities, noted intellectuals, elected officials and sporting icons. They have also used a portion of their proceeds to send teams to document people around the globe with incredible stories, such as Syrian refugees in the world’s second largest refugee camp, survivors of the deadly conflict in South Sudan, rescued child slaves in India, survivors of the Boston Marathon Bombing and residents of Breezy Point, N.Y., where a six-alarm fire destroyed 111 homes during Hurricane Sandy.
    This event is sponsored by FSU Student Affairs and the Office of Student Activities and Greek Life SOAR Series.
    For more information, contact Director of Student Activities Robert Cooper at rncooper@frostburg.edu or the Lane University Center Information Desk at 301-687-4411.

    If you are a vendor who wants to educate visitors with your unique talent such as basket making, pottery, sculpting, blacksmith, wood carving, candle making, quilting, taxidermy, etc. then you are just who we need to participate.

    The crafters who are usually located under the big circus tents will be located in the gymnasium this year, while the flea market vendors will still be in their usual location on the grounds.

    The people who wish to watch the events happening on the stage will enjoy sitting under a tent this year. If it is too hot, raining or snowing the tent will make your experience more enjoyable and the musicians will be able to see who is actually listening to them play.

    Timbrook Ford- Keyser, along with three vehicles will be on the grounds Saturday from 10 a.m. -1 p.m. This is the second time that Burlington has partnered with Timbrook Ford- Keyser for a Drive 4 UR Community Event. Please stop by and fill out a form stating that you have looked at their display as $20 per valid test-drive will be given back to support Burlington UM Family Services.


     
           
  • - Frostburg State University’s Department of Theatre and Dance will once again present something for everyone during its 2016-17 season lineup – an adventure tale, a beloved children’s fantasy, a Christmas holiday ghost story, a Civil War drama, an 18th-century British comedy and two student dance concerts with original choreography.
    The season kicks off with “Around the World in 80 Days,” the classic adventure tale by French writer Jules Verne. Grab your passports and climb aboard for a whirlwind trip around the world! It’s 1872 and the eccentric and wealthy Phileas Fogg figures, with mathematical precision, that he can circumnavigate the globe in just 80 days. And he wagers half his fortune to prove it. Join Fogg and his loyal, yet unreliable, valet as they hop train, steamship – and elephant – in this fun-filled race against time that takes you around the world and into the heart. Performances will take place in the Drama Theatre of the Performing Arts Center at 7:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, Oct. 14 and 15, and Thursday through Saturday, Oct. 20 to 22, with a 2 p.m. matinee on Saturday, Oct. 15.
    The Fall Dance Concert, titled “Double Play,” will showcase the skill of Jamie McGreevy, choreographer and FSU Dance coordinator, as well as the spectacular talent of the FSU Dance Company, on Thursday and Friday, Nov. 10 and 11, at 7:30 p.m., with a matinee on Saturday, Nov. 12, at 3 p.m. in the F. Perry Smith Studio Theatre. “Double Play” features two performances in one evening. Act I, “Weight on Me,” extends an exciting work presented during the spring 2016 dance concert. To the contemporary neo-classical music of composer Ólafur Arnalds, the piece explores various forms of physical, emotional and social weight the human body encounters and endures. During Act II, “Manipulations,” audiences will witness the investigative play between choreographers, dancers and designers as they each contribute to the movement through physical, audible and visual manipulation.
    Next, celebrate the holiday season in a toast to human kindness with an adaptation of Charles Dickens’ classic Christmas story, “A Christmas Carol.” After being visited by ghosts from his past, present and future, the notoriously grumpy Ebenezer Scrooge has a true meaning-of-life question on his hands. Should he continue to live as a wretched miser or join the world around him as a decent, caring human being? With an ensemble cast playing such memorable characters as Bob Cratchit, Tiny Tim and the Christmas Spirits, “A Christmas Carol” is the perfect gift for families and friends to enjoy together. Drama Theatre performances are at 7:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, Dec. 2 and 3, and Thursday through Saturday, Dec. 8 to 10, with matinees on Sunday, Dec. 4, and Sunday, Dec. 11, at 2 p.m.
    In the spring, the Department of Theatre and Dance will present the powerful drama “Father Comes Home From the Wars, Parts 1, 2 and 3” by Pulitzer Prize winner Suzan-Lori Parks (“Topdog/Underdog”). In this powerful drama, Hero, a slave, must decide between joining his master on the Confederate battlefield – for what may or may not be a chance to gain his freedom – or staying behind on the plantation with the woman and people he loves. Infused with music and contemporary wit, “Father Comes Home From the Wars” is a high-stakes drama about the mess of war, the cost of freedom and the pain of love. Performances will take place in the F. Perry Smith Studio Theatre on Friday and Saturday, March 3 and 4, and Thursday through Saturday, March 9 to 11, at 7 p.m., with a matinee on Sunday, March 12, at 2 p.m.
    The fourth and final play of the season is “She Stoops to Conquer,” a delightfully witty and satirical romp that is as promising of laughter today as it was to audiences more than 200 years ago. When city slickers Marlow and Hastings travel to the countryside in search of love, they find themselves in a tangle of pranks and mistaken identities, including the belief that their prominent host (and Marlow’s possible future father-in-law), Mr. Hardcastle, is a mere innkeeper. To top it all, Marlow has a serious problem. In the company of barmaids and servant girls, he is strikingly self-assured, but in the presence of gentlewomen, including Kate Hardcastle, he is a shy and stammering schoolboy. The Hardcastle household becomes uproariously unhinged as Kate takes matters into her own hands, Hastings pursues his love and an outlandish cast of other characters burst their way into the escalating humor. Performances take place in the Drama Theatre on Friday and Saturday, April 14 and 15, and Thursday through Saturday, April 20 to 22, at 7:30 p.m., with a matinee on Saturday, April 15, at 2 p.m.
    The season wraps up with the annual Spring Dance Concert, “Legends,” on Friday and Saturday, May 12 and 13, at 7:30 p.m. in the Drama Theatre. “Legends” pays homage to many of the great music icons we have lost, such as David Bowie and Michael Jackson. Featuring the FSU Dance Company, this variety concert brings together our favorites tunes – the ones that make us sing and dance in the grocery aisle – with one of the world’s liveliest art forms.
    Season subscriptions are available until Oct. 22. For $45, Main Stage subscribers receive four tickets (one ticket per show for Main Stage productions). In addition, Main Stage subscribers can reserve tickets in advance of the general public and may purchase tickets to the Fall and Spring Dance Concerts at student rates.

  • - October 1, 1932 in the fifth inning of game three of the 1932 World Series, with a count of two balls and two strikes, Babe Ruth pointed to the center field bleachers in Chicago's Wrigley Field and followed up by hitting a soaring home run high above the very spot to which he had just gestured. Did he really call his shot? Some Disagree, some eyewitnesses and Cubs pitcher Charlie Root believe he did not. Even Babe Ruth's Daughter said that he denied it, but Babe himself also claimed he did it.
