Oxford EAGLE

Oxford seniors aren’t green anymore

Two seasons ago, Oxford head coach Johnny Hill jokingly suggested his team should change its name from the Chargers to the Martians because they were green with inexperience.

It is days like Tuesday, the first two-a-day practice of the summer, where the senior class needs to lead during the grueling summer heat. (July 28, 2010, Page 8)

          “The Rising Son: a story piece”

          Ole Miss Theatre at The University of Mississippi presents the world premiere of “The Rising Son: a story piece” written, designed and performed by Theatre Arts Associate Professor Dex Edwards. This production marks the first in the 2010-2011 Season and will run conclude Sunday, Aug. 29, at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. in the Meek Hall Auditorium on the Ole Miss Campus.

          A performance piece that according to Edwards is part “documentary-comedy,” part “dramatic-travelogue,” part personal memoir. Edwards, an Ole Miss Theatre Alumni, returned to The University in 1997 as head of Theatre Design, while continuing his work as a prolific professional theatre designer and director. The Rising Son is the first in a trilogy of performance pieces that could be described as the theatre’s version of “string theory” – the incredibly strong and undetectable connections between everyone and everything that is the actual substance of our lives – wrapped up in the comical story of the making of world’s largest baseball!

          Tickets for all performances are $10.50 for general admission $8.50 for seniors and children. Ole Miss students received a discount at $7. Seating is limited and tickets can be reserved by calling The University Box Office at 662-915-7411. Tickets can be obtained by visiting the Student Union location Monday – Friday 10 a.m.- 4 p.m.
