This past Saturday afternoon, on-campus folk a cappella group Too Cheap For Instruments held their annual Folk Fest on the Great Lawn.
This past Thursday evening, WBRS hosted its second comedy night this semester. Hosted by Josh Day, the event garnered a small, but lively audience. Dim lighting, as per request of Day — who spent time fussing over the Goldilocks “just right” setting for lighting — set the tone of the evening. A larger-than-life poster of a somber-looking pup against the wall behind the stage added to this facetiously melancholy set. To start off the evening, Day joked that this was his dog, who he recently put down, and that a reminder of one’s dead childhood dog is a necessary component for laughter at a comedy show. The morbid, edging on macabre, theme of the first joke would continue throughout the night.
Coming this Halloween season, prepare for “Blithe Spirit,” directed by Marek Haar ’20. Do you believe in ghosts?
