Oct 27, 2006

OLIVET, Mich. – The Olivet College music program, in conjunction with the colleges theatre program, is presenting a fall musical revue titled, Tapestry: A Celebration of Diversity, at the Oaks Theatre in downtown Olivet. The production will run Thursday, Nov. 9 through Saturday, Nov. 11 at 7:30 p.m. each night and Sunday, Nov. 12 at 3 p.m. The revue is free and open to the public.

The production, which was conceived by Timothy Flynn, Ph.D., music program director and assistant professor of music, celebrates the diversity of the human spirit, and addresses current social and political issues. The texts are taken from sources such as Anne Frank, Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr., Golda Mier, Albert Schweitzer and Mother Theresa, while the music includes works by Leonard Bernstein, Mozart, Rodgers and Hammerstein, Andre Thomas and Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber.

Flynn will direct the production, while Ramona Kime Graessle, Ph.D., assistant musical director, will accompany the performers. The cast includes Danielle Adams, a senior from Battle Creek; Jeremy Adams, a sophomore from Novi; Alaina Brown, a sophomore from Charlotte; Kyle Brown, a senior from Leslie; Angela Boardman, a 2005 graduate from DeWitt; Sarah Brugger, a junior from Okemos; John Gouba, a freshman from Novi; Emma Henson, a sophomore from Shelby Township; Tina Honecker, a senior from Olivet; Heather Hipkiss, a senior from Mulliken; Sarah Klepinger, a sophomore from Onondaga; Eleni Mitropoulos, a junior from Bronson; Eunice Oladele, a senior from Nigeria; Hannah Robbins, a sophomore from Marshall; and Marla Strickler, a freshman from Union.

An interactive component of the production will include a tapestry frame hanging in the theatre lobby. Audience members will be invited to add their own strips of fabric (or pieces provided for them), with their own personal messages of hope, justice, freedom and peace. The resulting tapestry will be on display at various locations on campus after the show.
