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.
Rain and Zoe Save the World
Rain and Zoe Save the World - by Crystal Skillman
Showdates: April 20 - 29, 2018
Rain and Zoe Save the World by New York-based playwright Crystal Skillman is coming to the UAA Mainstage Theatre.. Rain and Zoe Save the World is the winning script selected by a national panel of judges for the 2018 Earth Matters on Stage (EMOS) New Play Competition. The Earth Matters on Stage Conference will be hosted in Anchorage this year by the University of Alaska Anchorage, April 20-22.
In Rain and Zoe Save the World, two Seattle teenagers embark on an impulsive motorcycle journey to join a group of oil protesters on the east coast. But as they follow a major pipeline across the country, what began as two young activists’ longing to belong to something greater than themselves gives way to Rain and Zoe discovering that the true danger in this world might just be growing up.
EMOS is a triennial event, founded in 2004 to call forth and foster new dramatic works that respond to the ecological crisis. A series of presentations, workshops, panels, and play readings will surround the opening of the production.
Performance run time: 2 hours with a 10-minute intermission
Performances held at the UAA Mainstage Theatre, 3700 Alumni Drive, Anchorage, AK 99508
