The Life & Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby
Orlando Shakespeare Theater
$12 student rush tickets / $10 off advanced purchase. - A cast of 27 actors plays over 150 characters in this exhilarating two-part comic masterpiece that captures Dickens' genius for combining exuberant characters, theatrical spectacle, and captivating emotion. Winner of both the Tony Award ® for Best Play and The Olivier Award for Play of the Year, this epic event has never been produced in Central Florida. Left penniless by the death of his father, young Nicholas Nickleby assumes responsibility for his mother and sister and seeks help from his Scrooge-like Uncle Ralph. Instantly disliking Nicholas, Ralph sends him to teach in a school run by cruel headmaster Wackford Squeers. Nicholas decides to escape, taking with him the orphan Smike, one of Squeers's most abused young charges, and the two embark on a series of adventurous encounters with an array of humanity's worst and best—greedy fools, corrupt lechers, cheery innocents, and selfless benefactors. Will Nicholas truly escape from the evil clutches of Squeers? Can he save his sister from the exploitations of his uncle? Stay tuned!

UCF 2014 MFA Thesis Exhibition
Visual Arts Building (VAB)
Greetings! Please join the University of Central Florida Art Gallery at our opening reception of "Down the Rabbit Hole" March 13, 6-8PM. We are proud to present an exhibition of works by the Master of Fine Art Candidates, Shelly Bradon, Stephanie Cafcules, David Dannelly, Emilie Finney, Jay Flynn, Samuel Jimenez, and Ivan Riascos who will present a visual story of their journey which they describe as a "chaotic descent into the psyche culminating in discovery." For more information about the show, please visit: Gallery Website: http://gallery.cah.ucf.edu/ Opening Reception to be held: Thursday, March 13 - 6PM-8PM Exhibit Dates: March 6 - March 21, 2014 A little bit about the artists: Shelly Bradon's mixed media is a reflection on the victories and struggles of an 8 year old girl with physical disabilities. Stephanie Cafcules's work is influenced by both art history and nature and reflects a process of transforming synthetic materials either physically or chemically. David Dannelly's series of short narrative animations use philosophy, theology and media theory to analyze and critique popular media culture. According to Emilie Finney, her work reflects how "language defines meaning - and meaning defines intent." Jay Flynn likes to challenge the expectations of the viewer by using a combination of contemporary and historical photography with sculpture. Samuel Jimenez recreates scenes from his past that reflect the ambiguous nature of memory. Ivan Riascos uses photographic and sculptural icons to re-invent biblical scriptures that reflect his personal struggles with his Catholic upbringing. Guitarist, Singer, Songwriter and Entertainer, John Lazar will be performing at the reception March 13, 6-8pm
