CULTURE OF WOMEN FOCUS OF HCC PERFORMANCE

BRIDGEPORT – The Culture of Women will be spotlighted Thursday, March 19 when the Gospel a cappella group Women of the Cross makes a two-part appearance at Housatonic Community College.

The group, consisting of Leslie Bird, Elaine Hairston and Leslie Manselle, will conduct a workshop with HCC Theater Arts students from 2 to 3:15 p.m. the group and students will develop a performance piece. At 7 p.m., the piece developed in the workshop will be performed and the group will give a solo performance.  Both events will be held in the Performing Arts Center in Lafayette Hall.

The events, which are free and open to the public, are being held as part of the college’s Third Thursday Cultural Celebration series. During most months in the academic year, a performing artist representing a specific culture comes to the college on the third Thursday to develop and perform a piece with Theater Arts students and give a solo performance.

The college is located at 900 Lafayette Blvd, Bridgeport, less than 150 yards off I-95 (Exit 27) and Rte, 8 (Exit 1) in downtown Bridgeport, a block from the Arena at Harbor Yard. For more information, contact Prof. Geoffrey Sheehan at 203-332-5270.
