Senior Theatre Festival 2013 showcases talented students

The Faculty Room, a black comedy, takes place in—not surprisingly—the faculty room of Madison-Furey High School, a high school stuck in middle-of-nowhere America. The plot centers on five faculty members: a principal and four teachers. Three of the teachers have been teaching at Madison-Furey High School for a very long time, the longest employed perhaps being Bill, an old ethics teacher whom the other faculty have never heard speak. The newest teacher from the city, Carver, only wants to teach and make a difference at the school, but the other...

Kittredge Gallery showcases diverse student art

Since its opening reception on Nov. 14, the Kittredge Gallery has hosted the 2012 Art Students Annual Exhibit. The exhibition presented the individual voices of Puget Sound students as much as it presented their artistic talents, a skill that is perhaps of greater importance. One piece of artwork that especially made a statement was freshman Grace Best-Devereux’s “Kiskerätt,” a fishing net made of Swedish Fish. “The assignment was to create a piece made of only one material,” Best-Devereux said. “I chose Swedish Fish because when I had visited Sweden two...
