Twin Citites Chekhov Festival: Bryant Lake Bowl

"Swan Song" & "Uncle Sergei" & "A Boring Story" (Twin Cities Chekhov Festival)

Three one-act plays at Bryant lake Bowl, Saturday Feb. 23. The first two were short, the last (A Boring Story) a bit longer...but for good reason. Leading actor Bruce Hyde, a.k.a. 'Professor So-and-so,' did an amazing job in the first adaptation of Chekhov's 'A Boring Story'. Hardly boring; five artists played what had to be at least 10 roles.

Go to Bryant Lake Bowl to go bowling, have dinner, a drink and see a play all under one roof. This Lake Street gem has 'Cheap Date' nights Monday after 6pm to include 2 entrees, a bottle of wine and a game of bowling for $28. Or, take advantage of BLB's tradition of wining and dining while pleasantly enjoying a theatric event.

Program Administrator, Central Services

It's been a crazy past two weeks. Lots of shuffling around, a couple interviews and some miscellaneous happenings. At about the same time I was wondering what I would be doing after my contract was going to end, there was talk about offering me a job in the Central Services (C.S.) area of Facilities Management at the U of M. This conversation didn't happen very quickly and I felt a little uneasy most of the time...but when it came down to decision making time, I was offered a job to help with the many projects that are going on in C.S.

Now, just over two weeks into my job, working title still in flux, I have officially become a University employee and have began to tackle some big projects that are happening at the U. Benefits will be a big plus, and the experience unparalleled I'm sure.

Now that I have a bit of stability, time to figure out if this is what I really want to do, or should do.
