Students Perform in New York City
Working under Theatre Program coordinator Jody Person, Mercer's theatre
and dance students developed performances and took them to the big city
this month. They are performing in a storefront window in Manhattan the
weeks of Dec. 11 and 18. "You wouldn't believe how much audience
reaction we are getting," Person said. "Twenty-five or more
people at a time are at the window. We do one performance every 2 to 3
minutes and people are watching five rounds of it." Photos

Show a Hit
The most recent MouthWorks production, "I've Got Something in
my Pocket," hit the stage on Dec. 2. According to faculty member
Kathi Paluscio, "As usual, it kept its promise of hilarity from start
to finish. This year's troupe, the largest yet with 12 students, was delightfully
insane, performing a variety of skits all related to political correctness
and sensitivity to other's feelings. This included a vampire roadshow
on self-disclosure, movie theatre courtesy gone awry, and performing the
Student ID policy in styles from Shakespearean to Beatnik.
Said Paluscio, "As always, the rulebreaking superheroes were up to
their usual antics -- such as crossing the street without looking both
ways. All that in addition to the star of the show, Raphael, the blow-up
doll. The free admission and free baked goods were another yummy part
of the MouthWorks traditions. If you have never seen a MouthWorks show
over the past three years, you are truly
missing out. We invite
all to come to our Spring Show -- but we warn you -- come once and you're
a fan for life!" Photos
and Hot Air" Rocks Student Center
On Dec. 12, Mercer students were treated to a lunchtime concert, courtesy
of "GuyD and Hot Air." Led by faculty member Guy DeRosa, the
band was a pick-up group that performed a variety of soulful selections,
including an old R&B standard called "Merry Christmas Baby"
and the infamous "Putting the X back in Xmas."
"I've put together
similar bands for concerts like this for the last 10 years or so,"
DeRosa said. In addition to DeRosa on harmonica, the quartet included
John Straus on drums (a former MCCC adjunct), Wilbo Wright on bass (husband
of MCCC Gallery curator Tricia Fagan), and main vocalist Ron Kraemer on
guitar. DeRosa is a versatile musician who plays blues, country, rock
and roll, and jazz "to the extent that it can be done on an instrument
that's only about three inches long." Photos
Goldstein Featured in Feminist Directory
Adjunct faculty member Joan Goldstein is featured in Barbara J. Love's
"Feminists Who Changed America, 1963-1975," the first comprehensive
directory of the founders and leaders of the "second wave women's
movement." The directory includes biographies "of more than
two thousand individual women and a few notable men who together reignited
the women's movement and make permanent changes to entrenched customs
and laws," according to an online review. The book's foreword is
written by Nancy F. Cott, a history professor at Harvard University. The
publisher is the University of Illinois Press. For more, visit the website
