CANTON, MO (03/24/2014)(readMedia)-- Ian Sodawasser, senior musical theatre major from Davenport, Iowa, has been cast to perform in Culver-Stockton's musical theatre production, "Side by Side by Sondheim." The performers of C-SC's production were not assigned roles in this ensemble production; They are performing as a team, with each having an equal part.

This lively musical revue explores the many facets of Stephen Sondheim's brilliant lyrics. Sondheim is an American composer and lyricist known for his immense contributions to musical theatre, with a career spanning five decades. He is the winner of an Academy Award, eight Tony Awards, eight Grammy Awards and a Pulitzer Prize. This performance is often set with Sondheim's own music and occasionally given added punch through the music of composers such as Richard Rodgers or Leonard Bernstein.

Performances are April 3-5, 2014 at 7:30 p.m., with a 3 p.m. matinee Sunday, April 6. "Side by Side by Sondheim" is directed by Dr. Haidee Heaton, professor of theatre, with musical direction by Dr. Elliot Jones, professor of music and director of choral activities. Dr. Dylan Marney, professor music, is accompanying the performance on piano.

For ticket information, contact the C-SC Fine Arts Office at 573-288-6346.

Culver-Stockton College, located in Canton, Mo., is a four-year residential institution in affiliation with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).

Rock Island, IL: Thanks to a recent donation to the Rock Island Public Library, your library card can now help you bake a more attractive cake.

The collection is the result of a phone call from Rock Island resident Kristina Lefever, who had a cake pan collection that needed a new home. "She used to live near a library in central Iowa that had a circulating collection of cake pans. After moving to Rock Island, she decided her own collection had been packed up long enough, and called us. We agreed to see how patrons respond to this new service," notes Kim Brozovich, Director of Technical Services at the Rock Island Public Library.

Fifteen pans are available, in the following shapes:

  • Book pans
  • Bunny cake
  • Cookie Monster
  • Cross
  • Goofy
  • Heart cake
  • Holly Hobbie
  • Mini-cupcake tins
  • Mini egg pan
  • Pink Panther
  • Precious Pony
  • Strawberry Shortcake
  • Tweety Bird

"The pans will be housed at our Main Library, but can be sent via our delivery system to another Rock Island branch, or any other library in the RiverShare catalog," added Brozovich.

The items appear in the library online catalog under the subject heading "cake pans." Borrowers are responsible for washing the pans before they are returned. Pans check out for 21 days, and incur a standard late fine of 20 cents per day. Pans may be borrowed or put on hold by any patron with a library card from any RiverShare library, but cannot be sent to libraries outside the RiverShare consortium.

For more events at Rock Island Public Libraries, visit the library website at, follow the library on Facebook or Twitter, or call 309-732-7323.

Founded in 1872, the Rock Island Public Library serves the area through three locations, which include the Main, 30/31 and Southwest Branches, community outreach efforts, and online opportunities that provide resources to enhance personal achievement and stimulate the imagination.

Mouse King comments

Yes, I was scurrying around at the Blackhawk, watching and listening!  It was hard with all the feet moving around the room, especially the dancing!  I really liked the "Mashed Potato Martinis" - so yummy!  I laughed so hard I thought everyone would hear me . . . one of our beautiful ballerinas thought it was ICE CREAM!! Yes, those ladies eat ice cream - and I have benefited from more than a few cookies crumbs  :). All in all, it was a very exciting, magical night.
