The Ceramics Class recently made 11 bowls to donate to an Empty Bowls Fundraiser in Amherst, MA that will benefit the Amherst Survival Center. Said one student, “It was cool because it was fun and we were helping people.”

This weekend, members of The Laramie Project cast took part in a weekend intensive workshop led by Scott Barrow—actor, writer, director and member of the Tectonic Theater Project.
Over the last 15 years, Tectonic has established itself as one of the most groundbreaking theater companies in the country. Five weeks after the murder of Matthew Shepard in Laramie, Wyoming, members of Tectonic went to the town to learn more about why he was murdered. Using a collaborative, process-based approach, Tectonic crafted The Laramie Project entirely out of interviews conducted over six trips to the town.
The play, originally done with eight actors playing 63 roles, will be performed with a cast of 19 at Williston this spring.
Today was our first time putting on the makeup for our upcoming children’s theater production of Wondrous Tales of Old Japan. The play is being produced in the Japanese theatrical style of Kabuki and this makeup is a traditional aspect of that style. February 18-23, 2013 at 3:30pm.

A classical Indian dance, a solo en pointe, and the choreography of guest artist Michelle Marroquin will be among the highlights of Shockwave, the fall concert of the Williston Northampton Dance Ensemble.
The concert will feature 12 dances, including the work of six student choreographers—Victoria Durocher, Keely Quirk, Madeline Wise, Marie Innarelli, Tory Kolbjornsen and Maddison Stemple-Piatt—and a collaborative ensemble piece by the choreography class.
To find out more about how one of the dancers, Pankti Dalal, was preparing for “Shockwave,” Dance Program Director Laurel Raffetto asked her about dancing, the Williston program, and her classical training.
