Ten of Mercer's most talented dance students will join with community dancers
to present the "Mercer Dance Ensemble" at Kelsey Theatre this weekend.
Performances are Saturday, May 24 at 8 p.m. and Sunday, May 25 at 2 p.m.
The company is under the artistic direction of Janell Byrne, a dance instructor
at the college. According to Byrne, the performance runs the gamut,
with pieces that offer reflections on the state of the world, to domestic
issues, to simple fun. "There will be some serious dancing and some
fun elements," she said. "Something for everyone to enjoy."
Think I Can, I Think I Can"

on Saturday, May 31 at 2 and 4 p.m. as ArtsPower, a national touring theater
company based in Montclair, N.J., presents its original production of this
beloved children's classic.
This uplifting, feel-good musical tells the story of the Little Blue Engine
