The Fantasticks presented by Shade Tree Players

An allegorical tall tale concerning two neighboring fathers who trick their children into falling in love by pretending to feud.  The fathers hire traveling actors to stage a mock abduction of the girl so the boy can heroically save her, ending the family rift.  When the children discover the deception they part ways, but mature, learn and grow to find one another again through the strength of their own young love.

Theodore Roosevelt and the Law

Theodore Roosevelt’s encounters with law and the legal tradition were anything but abstract. Roosevelt did almost nothing without bringing his outsized personality and capacity for creating a great story to bear on events. Yet the legal questions Roosevelt encountered in the course of his life are important ones. His contributions to the national debate were important. Join us as we consider Theodore Roosevelt and the Law, including the live, spontaneous Trial of Theodore Roosevelt on the Stickney Auditorium stage at Dickinson State University.
