Upcoming Events

David Sedaris

Solo Performance, Signing/Readings, Comedy
Tweaking the familiar until it warps; David Sedaris mines poignant comedy from his peculiar childhood in North Carolina, his bizarre career path, and his move with his lover to France. David Sedaris' wickedly witty observations of the ordinary-bizarre is always sure to deliver insights and laughs. One of six children in a second-generation Greek family, he grew up in Raleigh, NC. In 1977, he dropped out of Kent State University to hitchhike around the country. Aside from working as an elf, Sedaris has worked a number of charmingly quirky jobs such as a house painter, an apple picker, an aide in a mental hospital, a creative writing teacher at the Art Institute of Chicago, and an apartment cleaner. Sedaris made his comic debut recounting his strange-but-true experiences of being a Macy's elf, reading his "Santaland Diaries" on National Public Radio's Morning Edition in 1992. His sardonic humor and incisive social critique have made him one of NPR's most popular and humorous commentators. In 2001, he was named Humorist of the Year by Time magazine and received the Thurber Prize for American Humor. The author of "Barrel Fever" and "Holiday on Ice," as well as bestselling memoirs "Naked," "Me Talk Pretty One Day," "Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim," "When You Are Engulfed in Flames" and most recently, "Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls," his next book, "Theft by Finding," due out in the summer of 2017, will be a collection of his diaries.

The Nutcracker

Classical Dance, Modern, Ballet, Holiday, Christmas
The Friends University Ballet Department will present a new full-length production of “The Nutcracker.” Performances will be at 7:30 p.m. Dec. 7-8 and Dec. 14-15, and at 2 p.m. Dec. 9 and Dec. 15.
This production of “The Nutcracker” will be unique in comparison to previous years. Andrea Vazquez-Aguirre, the newly-hired director of the ballet-centered dance program at Friends, will choreograph the work. The music will be The Duke Ellington Orchestra’s classic 1960 recording of Billy Strayhorn’s Nutcracker Suite, supplemented with selections from David Berger’s “Harlem Nutcracker” (1996).
“The Ellington Nutcracker will add diversity to the options for audiences and participants for the holiday season, celebrating the elegant American tradition of jazz, with its roots in the fusion of European and African musical elements,” Vazquez-Aguirre said.
Friends students and other dancers from the community will share the stage with four guest performers, chosen for their extraordinary artistry. The first weekend of performances, Dec. 7-9, will feature Jermey Edmonson and Nanako Horikawa, freelance dancers in New Mexico and New York. Dandara Amorim Veiga and Lyvan Verdecia from Ballet Hispanico in New York City will share their magic for the second weekend of performances, Dec. 14-15.
“The guest artists performing with us this year will not only share their exquisite and unique talent, but they will also teach free community classes and share studio and rehearsal time with our dance majors,” Vazquez-Aguirre said.
Tickets sell out each year, so those who wish to attend should purchase their tickets early. Ticket prices are $16 for adults and $13 for students and seniors (60+).
The performance will take place in Sebits Auditorium in Riney Fine Arts Center on the Friends University campus at 2100 W. University Ave., Wichita, Kan.
