In the Spotlight

Our first Continuing Education Variety Show was a smashing success!

In spite of the SEPTA strike, we had the most lovely evening for our very first Continuing Education Variety Show. On November 2 our brave Continuing Education students took to the cabaret stage with Creative Writing faculty, Ken Bingham as a masterful master of ceremonies. We were treated to readings, performance and other delights presented by our talented students, faculty and friends.


What a hoot it was!


The performances included a series of hot, hot, hot tap dance numbers, a Russian pop song from the 60s, jazz and scatting, a heartwarming story about shucking oysters; a fabulously funny reading about Philadelphia trees; a scene from play by a pair of students from Acting Lab, and more.


Thank you to everyone for making it a magical night--you are wonderful talented people. I look forward to future collaborations and performances, mark your calendar for April 26 - for our 2nd Continuing Education Variety Show!
