Theatre/Dance 8th block production of “Coriolanus, or Helter-Skelter”
Norberg Studio, Cornerstone Arts Center, Thursday, May 9th @ 7:30, Friday, May 10th @ 7:30 and Sat. May 11th at 3:00pm (matinee) No evening performance (you are welcome Llamapalooza).

A mashup of William Shakespeare and the Beatles, devised by Tom Lindblade and designed by Max Sarkowsky ’20, Gypsy Ames, & Heidi Eckwall.

“Shakespeare’s great tragedy is a meditation on failed political leadership and the senseless violence and corrosion left in its wake. The chaos of Coriolanus’ Rome is reflected in the helter-skelter fall of a dynasty and a society, showing what happens when personal ambition and grievance supplant ethical norms and moral order. A play for our times.”

Free with CC ID, $5.00 general Public

Spring is an exciting time of year, especially with graduation just around the corner. Whether you are planning to travel outside of Colorado Springs at the end of the academic year, or have family and friends coming to join in year-end celebrations, travel has an environmental cost. In fact, transportation generates some of the largest shares of greenhouse gas emissions on the planet and plays a pivotal role in climate change. Would you reduce your or your family and friends carbon footprint if you could?

The Office of Sustainability has created a travel calculator that collects voluntary contributions through a carbon offset fund. Basically, this money goes into a fund that invests in projects that remove carbon or prevent greenhouse gas emission from entering the atmosphere, such as various landfill gas destruction projects in Colorado, Utah, and Oklahoma.

Investing made easy – simply input your start and end points and our calculator does the rest! Do your part to combat climate change by offsetting friend, family, and personal travel here: www.coloradocollege.edu/offices/sustainability/resources/travel-offset.html?com
