Impressive Presentation of Lovely Evidences


This week there will be a presentation/lecture by a person who simply identifies herself as the Librarian. This Librarian has rented out the Lab Theatre for the days of November 3-6, in hopes of presenting some evidence that she has collected throughout her travels across the world and in an effort “to prove one life and justify another” to anyone who wishes to attend. Throughout her lecture, the Librarian describes her adventures around the world as she tries to crack the alluring mystery of a book that was returned 113 years overdue by an unknown person.

HIA Presents: Rocky Horror Picture Show, Shadow Cast


On September 23rd, at 7:30 PM in Slade theater, Hartwick’s Identity Alliance will be putting on a show like none other: a shadow cast production of The Rocky Horror Picture Show. While that may sound incredibly enticing on it’s own accord, it gets even better. For some that may not know, a “shadow cast” production isn’t your standard play, musical or movie viewing. In this, and most, cases it’s a musical or play happening in real time with the movie that’s based directly on the movie itself.
