    Amelia Earhart's courageous exploits and spirited personality made her an international celebrity in the early twentieth century.  She was the first woman to cross the Atlantic (1932).  She set numerous speed and altitude records and received high honors and awards.  On July 2, 1937, she and her navigator Fred Noonan mysteriously disappeared over the Pacific Ocean during their attempted round-the-world flight.  Set in 1937, this first-person program recounts Earhart's life, the many records she broke, her unconventional views on marriage, and her tireless work to promote aviation and opportunities for women.

    Quanah and Cynthia Ann Parker will be the topic of an exhibit and program series at Booth Library.

    The exhibit “Quanah and Cynthia Ann Parker: The History and the Legend” will be on display from Feb. 7 to April 9. In addition, a series of related programs and film screenings are planned Feb. 20-23.

    The saga of Cynthia Ann and Quanah Parker is well-known in Texas history, but the story really began in East Central Illinois. Cynthia Ann’s grandfather, Elder John Parker, her uncles, Benjamin and Daniel Parker, and other members of the family were among the first white settlers of what became Coles County.

    In about 1833, several members of the Parker clan moved to Texas and created Fort Parker there. A few years later, a band of Indians attacked the fort, killing many and kidnapping a few of the children, including Cynthia Ann, age 9.

    Cynthia Ann grew up as a member of the Comanche tribe, married one of the chiefs and bore three children; the oldest was Quanah, who later became the last Comanche chief in America.

    The Last Five Years, a memory play

    Wednesday, April 1, 7:30pm

    Thursday, April 2, 6:00pm

    Doudna Fine Art Center - The Globe Studio (Room 1080)

    Limited seating - no admission charged

    A student performance using the student talents of both the Theatre Arts Dept. and the Music Dept. produced with funding from various sources allowing viewers to see the student's work for free.

    The Last 5 Years examines the five-year relationship between Jamie Wellerstein, a rising novelist, and Cathy Hiatt, a struggling actress. Unlike most musicals, this show uses a unique storytelling approach where Jamie travels chronologically in time, from the beginning of the relationship to the end, while Cathy travels backwards in time, from the end of the relationship to the beginning. Because Jamie and Cathy travel in opposing time lines, the only direct contact between the two occurs during their engagement/wedding song in “The Next Ten Minutes." This show is an intensely personal examination of the rise and fall of a relationship, the games couples’ play, and the multidimensionality of a person.  

    The Last Five Years is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).   All authorized performance materials are supplied by MTI.   421 W. 54th St., NY, NY 10019   Phone: 212-541-4684 Fax: 212-397-4686   www.MTIShows.com
