Performance of "Urbandale: A place, a people, a story"  (Performing Arts (Dance, Music, Theatre, ...))

At 7 p.m. on Friday, February 1, in the RCAH Theater, see a performance of "Urbandale: A place, a people, a story." This play is about Lansing's Urbandale neighborhood and what makes it tick. A year in the making, the play is based on interviews with actual neighbors, newspaper accounts, photographs and other historic and contemporary materials.

Houses will talk. Gardens will grumble, and the Red Cedar River will overflow her banks. If you live in a neighborhood--any neighborhood--you might find yourself and your friends in this play.

"Urbandale: A place, a people, a story" was written by students in MSU's Residential College in the Arts and Humanities under the direction of anthropologist, Laura B. DeLind, and poet, Anita Skeen, and with the assistance of Kate Snodgrass, award-winning director of Boston Playwright's Theatre. It is funded in part by a grant from the Michigan Humanities Council.
