8:00pm curtain ~ Suzanne Roberts Theatre

103-year-old Sadie Delany and 101-year-old Bessie Delany personally welcome us into their home to share an endearing, true story. Like molasses and vinegar, the Delany sisters have always been opposites; but together, these daughters of a former slave grew up in the Jim Crow South, lived in Harlem during its renaissance, and had professional careers as a teacher and a dentist, respectively. While making dinner to remember their father’s birthday, the two sisters tell us of the last century as they lived it – through stories of racial injustice and personal strife, unified by faith, family, and time.

Laughter On The 23rd Floor - Neil Simon, gives a peek into the writer's room of a hit 1950's television show. People gather around the TV each week to watch their favorite comedian Max Prince. He's loud, brash and larger than life. His temper tantrums and one-liners have the power to make careers, or make misery for the writers working around him. The network censors want to change the show to make it more "advertiser friendly." But messing with Max can only mean the jokes and jabs will get funnier and wilder in an uncertain future, as the world of television heads for change.

Please note: True to Mr. Simon's work as a writer for comedy shows of the 1950s, this production does contain some adult language.


FREE - Pre-Registration required via EventBrite here starting 1/12/17.

Monday, 3/13/17
Eakins Lounge, Jefferson Alumni Hall

Dance/movement therapy is defined by the American Dance Therapy Association as the psychotherapeutic use of movement to further the emotional, cognitive, physical and social integration of an individual. Dance/movement therapists seek to expand upon the typical movement preferences of individuals as a way of expanding their coping skills and problem-solving capabilities. Empathy, trust and respect lay the foundation for the therapeutic relationship built between therapist and patient.    

Instructor Erin Gallagher, a dance/movement therapy master's candidate and intern at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, will present a brief overview of the principles of dance/movement therapy theory and how this therapy may be woven into integrative healthcare. Participants will be invited to join in an experiential demonstration of dance/movement therapy techniques as an introduction to this modality’s unique approach to health and wellness. Time will be provided to answer questions and to discuss how demonstrating compassion towards oneself through dance and movement can enhance the self-care regimens of health care practitioners as they seek to improve the lives of individuals in the communities in which they practice.
