Skinner Winter Arts Nights! Dec. 15 & 16

Winter Arts Night – Drama takes place on Tuesday, December 15, 2015 from 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm in the Auditorium

Drama Performance – Beowulf: Use Friendly & Visual Arts Exhibition

ABOUT THE PLAY: After an entire class fails the exam on Beowulf, their stern teacher issues a challenge — tell her the famous story. Include the characters, action, themes, and history, and you might just pass. The students concoct a retelling of the tale in a way that is relevant, accurate and absurdly hilarious, producing a special newscast à la CNN, complete with reporters, video images and interviews. With Monty Python-esque humor at Hrothgar’s mead-hall to light-hearted teasing of the teacher (who could have been born in the Middle Ages herself!), students explore Beowulf with biting sarcasm and amusing stage action. If you thought Grendel’s mother butchered the Danes, get ready for monstrous laughter with the butchering of the epic poem Beowulf!                                     Written by Burton Bumgarner
