Although the coronavirus has limited Lee University Theatre’s ability to perform with an in-person audience this semester, it will hold a livestream virtual performance, “When She Had Wings,” beginning Friday, Oct. 9, at 7:30 p.m. Additional shows will be held Oct. 10, 16 and 17 at 7:30 p.m.

“When She Had Wings” tells the story of B, a girl who desperately wishes she could fly, and A, a creature who seems to fall out of the sky, but just might be a long-lost historical figure. While helping A find her path, B is able to move past her own roadblocks and discover the beauty of flights of fancy. The story is about the power of imagination and belief and is designed to entertain the whole family.

“We are excited to bring this magical story to life on stage and bring it to our audiences via livestream,” said Dr. Christine Williams, professor of theatre. “It does what all great theatre should do – spurs the imagination and makes us feel connected to those around us.”

According to Dr. Williams, this show was chosen specifically because actors could rehearse and produce it with safety protocols in place, like social distancing and mask use. The costume designer, Khristina Scoggins, created unique ways to integrate masks into the costumes of the show. 

Tickets are $5 for one streaming ticket or $10 for multiple people viewing on one device. Tickets can be purchased online at showclix.com/event/when-she-had-wings.

We Must Love

I feel it too. It is easy to hate. Maybe we could try harder to love. Hate seeps into our bones, rules our integrity, and convinces us to forsake those we love. Hate is toxic. It spreads to our neighbors; people we once trusted. It spreads to our coworkers and friends; people who once trusted us. We lose sight of what truly matters. That is what we have in common now. Is ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: Trump & The J-Word

There have been a bunch of times in my half-century as a writer when people – especially other writers – have called me out for being different. That in itself isn’t a bad thing (I rather like it), but Alf Van Hoose, the legendary sports editor, told me once in a crowd, “You are a rarity … you’ll put the word ‘Jesus’ in a paragraph, and I appreciate that.” But it’s true - the scariest ...
