During a rehearsal for an orchestra concert at Hill Auditorium, a beeper can go off without anyone so much as batting an eye. That's because this is the Life Science Orchestra, a full amateur orchestra composed of 82 members of the University's biomedical community. Esteemed radiologists, nurses, biomedical engineers, medical school professors and LSA pre-health students make up just some of the musicians in the group. The orchestra is open to virtually anyone in the health sciences at the University who has a passion and talent for music.

When productions of time-tested plays are reviewed, the article usually only lightly touches on the merits of the play itself. For Shakespeare's more popular plays, for example, the worth of the playwright's words seem beyond debate. At least, it's beyond scrutiny of the exposé sort, since the author cannot be reached for comment.

What do you call a play with dancing, music and a little bit of singing? How about an experimental, organic and collaborative experience for students in the University's School of Musical Theater? That's how those involved in this weekend's studio production of "A Good Boy" view its new piece.
As a studio production in the School of Musical Theater, "A Good Boy" is directed by faculty and cast with students in the school. Studio productions stand in contrast with University Productions like "J.B.," running this weekend, which have significant financial backing by the school.

This weekend at the Power Center, God and the Devil will fight an epic battle of wit and will. They will test human faith and endurance. They will drag one man from the zenith of success to the pit of destruction and back again.
And all this takes place within a traveling circus populated by student actors and, believe it or not, football stars.
