[CONVO]* — MacBeth
[CONVO]* — MacBeth
Norton Center for the Arts – Weisiger Theatre, Danville KY

Considered one of Shakespeare’s darkest and most powerful tragedies, MacBeth was written at a time of great turmoil in England. A new king, come from Scotland, has replaced Elizabeth, and Catholic insurgents have tried to assassinate him and the cream of English aristocracy by filling the basement of Parliament with a huge bomb. This was the 17th-century’s 9/11. Images of smoke and powder, betrayal and corruption dominate the play. Set in Scotland, the play dramatizes the corrosive psychological and political effects produced when evil is chosen as the way to power.

"twenty aprils" Benefit Concert
West Walnut Street, Danville KY

Featuring
DJ Auzey
• Hundreds of pounds of powder paint
• Food by Captain Franks Hotdog Emporium (15% of sales benefit Good News International)

This month, communities in Rwanda and around the world will commemorate the 20th anniversary of the 1994 genocide. During the genocide, approximately 800,000 Rwandans were killed within a period of 100 days, leaving behind millions of orphans and widows.

This past January, students from Centre College worked with Good News International in Rwanda, a non-profit, local-initiated organization that supports orphans and widows through educational sponsorship, housing, income-generating projects, and counseling services.

Partnering with Good News International, twenty aprils is a student-led benefit concert to celebrate the power and endurance of Rwandans 20 years after the genocide. The goal is to raise no less than $10,000 (from ticket sales and gifts) by April 25 to help support survivors of the genocide.

• Tickets and T-shirts ($10 each, or both as a package for $15)
Available at the Campus Center — Monday & Wednesday (5 p.m.-7 p.m.); Tuesday & Thursday (11 a.m.-1 p.m.)
Tickets will be sold at the gate also.
