Here’s RIPPLES! Don’t miss the upcoming twisted comedy WONDER OF THE WORLD at Riverwalk Theatre. What’s on YOUR Bucket List?
There’s an update on the GoFundMe account for Ashley Hawkins (used to be Bryant.) I made two mistakes saying she "worked at The Costume Shop for a few years when it was at the LCC Firehouse” - I meant LCP Firehouse, which I misheard Skip tell me on the phone — but I was more right in that wrongness because she worked at the LCC - Lansing Community College - Costume Shop. She's getting bi-lateral (double) mastectomy, actually today, March 17, on her birthday and she and her family could use some $ help. Read more about her story and consider making a donation at:

EAST LANSING, Mich. – RENT’S 20th Anniversary Tour will offer a pre-show lottery at the Ticket Office for $20 seats in the first two rows of the orchestra section. The lottery will be offered for each performance, beginning two-and-a-half hours prior to curtain time. Interested persons should be at Wharton Center’s Ticket Office at that time to submit their name for the drawing. The drawing will take place two hours before curtain, for a limited number of tickets priced at $20 each. Only one entry is allowed per person (cards are checked for duplication prior to drawing), and each entry may request up to 2 tickets. Winners must be present at the time of the drawing and show valid ID to purchase tickets. Limit one entry per person and two tickets per winner. Tickets are subject to availability.
The tradition of the $20 tickets began in 1996 in New York, when the show moved to Broadway after a sold-out run in a small downtown theatre. The producers of the show are committed to continuing the tradition of offering orchestra seats for $20 in each city the show will play.
As part of the MSU Federal Credit Union Broadway at Wharton Center Series, RENT – 20th ANNIVERSARY TOUR will perform on Wharton Center’s Cobb Great Hall stage from March 17-19, 2017. Tickets are available at Wharton Center’s official ticketing outlets: online at whartoncenter.com, at the Auto-Owners Insurance Ticket Office at Wharton Center, or by calling 1-800-WHARTON.

3/23-4/23 - Williamston Theatre presents 1984
By George Orwell
Adapted by Michael Gene Sullivan
Directed by Tony Caselli
March 23 – April 23, 2017
A Michigan Premiere!
Based on the iconic novel by George Orwell, 1984 brings us the story of Winston Smith, a cog in the giant machine state of Oceania. Winston has been caught struggling for scraps of love and freedom in a world awash with distrust and violence. With the brutal “help” of four Party Members, Winston is forced to confess his Thought crimes before an unseen inquisitor, and the audience – which acts as a silent witness to his torture. A ferocious and provocative adaptation of one of the most prescient works of literature of the last century, 1984 asks: What does it mean to be an individual? What does it mean to be human?
