DREAM Program Welcomes New Students
Eight new students were welcomed to Mercer's DREAM program on June 9, while continuing students received certificates of recognition. The model program is designed for students with cognitive disabilities.

Four DREAM students have completed six semesters at Mercer, including Jackie Applebaum and Michael Toft. Although she is leaving DREAM, Applebaum plans to continue at Mercer, with clases in education, choir and sign language. Toft will be working at MCCC's Conference Center while also continuing to take classes. More here.

Theatre/Dance Students Collaborate with Composer/Performer Vanessa Daou
Mercer's dance students had the opportunity to use selections from Vanessa Daou's just-released album, "Joe Sent Me," as the sultry, stylish and innovative accompaniment for their annual concert. Entitled "Joe Sent MDE," the show recalled the underground scene that emerged during the Prohibition era, when the code phrase "Joe sent me" helped people gain access to speakeasies.

Dramatic lighting by Entertainment Technology faculty member Robert Terrano enhanced the performance, which was videotaped by TV students and faculty member Barry Levy.

The show was choreographed by MCCC faculty members Janell Byrne and Jody Person, and Dance alumna Jennifer Gladney, and featured 21 dancers. Following the show, which Daou attended, she wrote on her blog of "their absolutely stunning, scintillating performance of Joe Sent MDE." More here.

The James Tolin Memorial Fund presents its seventh annual benefit theater event with Paul Rudnick's comedy, "The Most Fabulous Story Ever Told." The Friday and Saturday shows feature a silent auction starting at 7 p.m. and a catered reception and music following the performance.
