In the first segment of the podcast, Central Penn College Theater Director Janet Bixler along with some of the cast joins the Knightly News to discuss her upcoming student-created play.

Spring is kicking in and the third annual student-created play is back at the Capital BlueCross Theatre.

Last year, the production was “Dreams and Nightmares.” This year, the play is entitled “Truth.”

The play is centered around a small group of friends that all deny their truth about themselves.

We are all eager to see how “Truth” plays out with this cast of students.

Show times are from May 17-19, starting at 7:30 p.m., and May 20 for a matinee showing, starting at 2:30 p.m.

Ticket price is $3 for students and $5 for general admission and tickets are available at the box office or online.

The box office will open one hour prior to the show and online tickets along with additional information about the show are available here.

In the second segment of the podcast, the Knightly News is joined by Professor Maria Thiaw to talk about the American Griot Project that she has been working on over the last two years.

During her time on the show, she discusses what the American Griot Project is and how she envisions the future of the project.

To learn more about the project, you can go to Thiaw’s blog about the topic and find out how you can help.

In addition, Thiaw discusses the club she advises, the Knight Writers, a creative writing club on campus that promotes self-expression.
