The Department of Communications at Misericordia University is offering a special screening of its recently completed documentary ‚??Vote‚?Ě today at 6 p.m. in the McGowan Room of the Mary Kintz Bevevino Library.
Dr. Melissa Sgroi, department chair, and Dan Kimbrough, assistant professor, traveled throughout NEPA during the Nov. 6 general election to gauge whether or not polling places met Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements and did not disenfranchise any members of the nation‚??s electorate by preventing them from casting their ballots.
The professors accompanied a physically challenged student and his mother from polling place to polling place, and also spoke to election officials, a state official, and others to see why these obstacles have not been corrected at polling places.
The Vintage Theater (326 Spruce St., Scranton) will bring a literary classic to the stage in May.
Due to the positive response of the staged reading production of Jane Austen‚??s ‚??Pride and Prejudice‚?Ě in Nov. 2009 and in honor of the book‚??s 200th anniversary, The Vintage will stage a full production based on the novel.
This won‚??t be the typical production however, as The Vintage will put a twist on the tale, moving the time and place of the work to early 1960s New England. This will be done in order to make the piece more accessible, as well as showcase the similarities of the times periods‚?? social structures.
The play will take place in the second floor of the Jermyn Hotel Building (former Electric Theatre Company space) from May 10 through the 18. Open auditions will be held in the near future.
