Not a Cruz man (yet??) but the blow back from Republican leaders is a bunch of self-righteous bunk.

As I asked at first, do you know this from legal precedence UKWP, or that's just how you read it? Obviously you THINK that's what it means, and I understood your view from the start. I'm not sure that is what it really means though. And your "read it till you understand" snark indicates you're just being arrogant and stubborn. You still refuse to answer my question. How do…

Oh my goodness, I believe it is up to the person whether they wear short or long sleeves based on what temperature is in the room. Some news outlets will do just about anything to stir up identity politics. With the many very difficult issues we have in this country, this one doesn't pass the "smell test".

Thanks for all of that but go back and read the phrase "lawfully in his possession" and keep reading it until you understand it. It's in the middle of your own post. The reason that phrase is in there is to distinguish between property that you can use force to protect: that which is "lawfully in his possession" and that which you cannot use force to protect: that which is not lawfully in his…

Culver-Stockton Theatre Production Chosen to Compete for National Honors

2 years, 6 months ago by Bryan Nichols

Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival to take place Jan 20-26 in Nebraska.

CANTON, Mo.—A scene from Culver-Stockton College’s theatrical production of William Shakespeare’s “Much
Ado about Nothing” has been selected for a competitive performance at the Region V Kennedy Center American
College Theatre Festitval (KC/ACTF). This year’s festival is hosted by the University of Nebraska at Lincoln, Jan. 20-
26. This scene was one of only eight selected from over 250 productions across Region V (which includes seven
states) to be included as a Meritorious Invited Scene nominee. Culver-Stockton did not apply for this honor, and
was nominated by a KC/ACTF respondent. This marks the fourth occasion this honor has been bestowed on a C-SC
production, the first in three years to do so.

Act IV, Scene 1 was chosen for competition at the festival. The scene is comprised of two student actors: Nicholas
Johnson, senior theatre major from Fieldon, Ill., will play Benedick and Anna Nytes, senior psychology major from
Quincy, Ill., will play Beatrice. Dr. Fonzie Geary, assistant professor of theatre at Culver-Stockton, is the director.

The Meritouroious Invited Scene is not the only nomination C-SC received for this year’s KC/ACTF. Nick Johnson
is also an Irene Ryan nominee for his performance in "Barefoot in the Park." Other nominees and the productions
they were nominated for are listed below:

Tim Maples, senior musical theatre major from Chicago, Ill., for “Much Ado about Nothing” and “The Diary of Anne
Frank”; Jason Epley, junior theatre major from Quincy, Ill., for “Much Ado about Nothing” and “Barefoot in the
Park”; Ian Sodawasser, junior musical theatre major from Davenport, Iowa, for “Assassins”; Kathy Holstein, senior
arts management major from Branson, Mo., for “Assassins”; Hollyann Lillie, senior musical theatre from Rockford,
Ill., for “Kiss Me, Kate”; Kirsten Sindelar, senior musical theatre major from Sherrard, Ill., for “Kiss Me, Kate”; and
Alex Cole, sophomore arts management major from Union, Mo., for “The Diary of Anne Frank.”

The goals of the Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival are to encourage, recognize and celebrate
the finest and most diverse work produced in university and college theater programs, as well as to improve the
quality of college theater in America. The KCACTF is comprised of eight geographic regions in the United States
and honors excellence of overall production and offers student-artists individual recognition through awards and
scholarships in playwriting, acting, criticism, directing and design.

In January and February of each year, regional festivals showcase the finest of each region's entered productions
and offer a variety of activities, including workshops, symposia and regional-level award programs. Regional
festival productions are judged by a panel of three judges selected by the Kennedy Center and the KCACTF
national committee. These judges select four to six of the best and most diverse regional festival productions to be
showcased in the spring at the annual noncompetitive national festival at the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C.
