@The Rita Visiting Artist Series Starts Strong
This past Saturday marked the opening night of the @The Rita Visiting Artists Series with a performance by Chicago's famed comedy theatre The Second City. The event was a huge success with over 500 people in attendance and set the tone for the exciting new series.
Dean Yohnk, Dean of the College of Arts and Humanities said, "The Second City performance reflects our commitment with the new @The Rita series to bringing the finest possible national and international artists and entertainers to UW-Parkside and Southeastern Wisconsin. As you can see from the rest of our 2013-14 Visiting Artist Series, we are off to a great start in scheduling events that are entertaining, educational, and culturally enriching and the diverse campus and communities we serve."
The Second City performance is just one of many nationally and internationally acclaimed performances included in the new @The Rita Visiting Artist Series. The next performance in the series is Dickens In America, October 25, at 7:30 p.m. Direct from the acclaimed summer run at Wisconsin's famed American Player's Theatre in Spring Green, this captivating new one-man play, "Dickens In America" tells the inspiring and delightful story of Charles Dickens' farewell tour in America.
