Moline High School students put on an English farce complete with accents, slamming doors, falling trousers and flying sardines PDF Print E-mail
News Releases - Stage & Theatre
Written by M. McNeil   
Monday, 29 October 2012 13:01
(Moline, IL)  Moline High School is presenting its fall play called Noises Off the first weekend in November.  According to Director, Christopher Thomas, NOISES OFF is Michael Frayn's depiction of the on stage and off stage personalities that it takes to put together a play.  This comedy-within-a-comedy captures a British touring theatre troupe’s production of Nothing On in three stages: dress rehearsal, an opening performance, and a performance toward the end of the run.  The characters try to put on a good show, but their unique personalities, out-of-control egos, memory loss and passionate affairs turn every performance into a high-risk adventure.  Progressing from flubbed lines and missed cues in the dress rehearsal, the performances only get worse when friction arises between personalities.

Thomas says rehearsing and performing NOISES OFF is like putting his students through comedy boot camp. "This play is truly a challenge for any theatre group--high school and professional alike--due to its demand for so many pieces to come together all at the right time.  The set has to be extremely sturdy, yet rotate 180 degrees.  Actors have to perform in believable British accents and there are an insane amount of props in the show.  Our students are challenged to showcase all of their comedic talents with their physicality, wit, voice, and timing”.

 
Jobs from electric vehicle grants, verification sought PDF Print E-mail
News Releases - Stage & Theatre

Thursday, October 18, 2012

Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa is tracking the effectiveness of the Administration’s grants toward the electrification of vehicles.  One of grant recipients once considered the most promising, A123 Systems, filed for bankruptcy this week.  Grassley made the following comment on the Administration’s statement that its $2 billion in grants for electric vehicles led to the employment of “thousands of American workers.”

Sen. Grassley comment –

“The Administration says it’s awarded $2 billion in grants to 29 companies involved in the electrification of vehicles, leading to the employment of ‘thousands of American workers.’  This comes after the Administration, through the Department of Energy, told my staff it doesn’t verify or update job creation statistics provided by grant and loan recipients.  I’ve asked the Administration for a detailed break-down of the job numbers that justify the statement that thousands of American workers are employed as a result of federal grants for electric vehicles.  The public deserves an accurate, current accounting of the numbers that justify the claim of jobs directly related to federal spending.  That’s the only way to quantify whether the federal spending accomplished what the Administration said it would accomplish.  Claims of job creation without verification are meaningless, and right now, there’s zero verification.”

The Velveteen Rabbit
Nov. 30 – Dec. 21, 2013
A musical adaption of the classic story by Margery Williams.
Book and lyrics by George Gray
Music by Chris Talbert
New to the toy chest, the Velveteen Rabbit isn’t quite sure what he’s good for. He can’t spin like the top or float like the boat or talk like the Mechanical Man. But the boy comes to love him and the Skin Horse says once a child really loves a toy, it becomes real. See what happens in this delightful classic set to music.
