By Jay Presson Allen
Adapted from the novel by Muriel Spark

At the staid Marcia Blaine School for Girls, Miss Jean Brodie is unmistakably in her prime as she captures the hearts and minds of the impressionable young girls in her classroom. They get the lessons of their lives as Miss Brodie instills in her proclaimed “crème de la crème” independence, passion, and ambition. As Miss Brodie demonstrates with her own attractions and unorthodox methods, “Safety does not come first. Goodness, truth, and beauty come first. Follow me!”

The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.

      Please join the director and cast for an Arts in Context discussion in the theatre immediately following the performance on February 10.

"Everest: The Real Deal” featuring Lhakpa Gelu Sherpa and Julio Bird, MD

Tuesday, Dec. 8, 2015
Lhakpa Gelu Sherpa

Lhakpa Gelu Sherpa

Lhakpa Gelu Sherpa is best known for holding a world speed record on Mount Everest, climbing from base camp to the summit in just 10 hours, 56 minutes, 46 seconds, on May 26, 2003. But his achievements in mountaineering, particularly on Everest, do not end there. He has reached the summit of Everest 14 times and has scaled many other high peaks in the Himalaya and abroad.

On April 25, 2015, an earthquake of 7.8 magnitude struck Nepal, killing more than 8,000 people and leaving countless others injured and homeless. The epicenter was in the village of Barpak. On May 12, a second large earthquake with a 7.3 magnitude struck the region between Kathmandu and Mount Everest. This earthquake was hardest hit in the foothills of the Himalaya, where Lhakpa Gelu's hometown of Kharikhola lies.

The effort to improve education has now become one of survival for the people of this devastated region, as aid from the government is slowly distributed and not nearly enough. The Lhakpa Gelu Foundation is providing funds directly to those in need in Kharikhola. Lhakpa Gelu will share his stories and images from the highest mountain in the world as part of a fundraising campaign for the Lhakpa Gelu Foundation.

There is a suggested donation of $15/person. All proceeds will go to the Lhakpa Gelu Foundation for earthquake relief.
