This morning, our Facilities and Campus Services team was made aware of a pothole that shut down the westbound lanes of Northern Lights Boulevard between UAA Drive and Career Center Drive. It has since been upgraded to a sinkhole, and the lanes will remain closed for an undetermined amount of time while crews repair the damage. We anticipate the closure will extend through the week.
Finals week is a very stressful time for students. Students, please know that your professors have been made aware of the situation. Please communicate with them any delays you may experience due to this issue. We know this is an unexpected traffic challenge. Please take a deep breath. We want you to have a smooth and safe finals week.
Eurydice - by Sara Ruhl
Showdates: February 26 - March 6, 2016
We invite you to embark on a Hero’s Journey of a girl on the path from childhood to adulthood in Sarah Ruhl’s contemporary retelling of the myth of Orpheus. Told from the perspective of Eurydice, the story revolves around Eurydice’s choice to return to earth with her lover Orpheus or to stay in the underworld with her deceased father.
Making his UAA directorial debut is Ketchikan native, Ty Hewitt who joined the UAA Department of Theatre and Dance in August. Although assisting with two fall productions, Hewitt is thrilled to take the reins and hopes “the audience comes away questioning role of fate versus free will.”
