Classic hits from Kanye West, Weezer and OutKast serenaded Shippensburg University students’ eardrums as they sauntered into the Thought Lot Thursday night for a listening party held by SU junior Zach Geesaman and sophomore Luke Hershey.
Saturday night’s performance of “42 ft. - A Menagerie of Mechanical Marvels” by Cirque Mechanics, brought the energy of the big top to Shippensburg University’s H. Ric Luhrs Performing Arts Center. The ensemble that came to life in 2004 showcased its ability to entertain like no other.
According to the Cirque Mechanics website, the show has “stories are wrapped in circus acrobatics, mechanical wonders and a bit of clowning around.” In the photo above the performers do a gravity-defying stunt.
Much like Santa Claus who is said to trek the world by sleigh every Christmas Eve, making many stops to deliver bow-topped gifts to children young and old, Celtic Woman, on its “The Best of Christmas Tour,” made a stop in Shippensburg on Thursday to deliver the gift of music to the H. Ric Luhrs Performing Arts Center.
The newest member of Celtic Woman, vocalist Megan Walsh, steps onstage to highlight her vocals with a solo song. The three other members of Celtic Woman had their share of solo performances throughout the night too.
On Friday, Nov. 16, the cast and crew for “Clue: Onstage” brilliantly performed its opening show. Originally supposed to open Thursday, Nov. 15, the opening show had to be postponed to Friday due to inclement weather. It was well worth the wait.
