A special three-night-only run of our NDSF: ON TOUR production of ROMEO & JULIET
Verona bursts to life with live acoustic music, stunning swordfights, Shakespeare’s brilliant and beautiful wordplay, and a tale all young people (and parents) must hear: when we love with too much passion, can any guidance prevent all from being lost?
Directed by NDSF's Ryan Producing Artistic Director Grant Mudge and featuring actors from Chicago Shakes, Montana Shakespeare in the Park, the Utah Shakespeare Festival and many more, don't miss this chance to catch "R&J" before it embarks on its statewide tour.
Designed to provide intimate access to the words and wonder of Shakespeare’s plays, NDSF: ON TOUR productions are based on a small-cast touring model, with an intense focus on the playwright’s use of language, together with just a few simple props and added costume-pieces. When a character speaks of the forest of Arden or Verona’s walls while standing in a school gymnasium or auditorium, the audience’s imagination creates the setting. With heart and humor, the actors invite each audience to become invested in the proceedings.
The performance will run 75 minutes without an intermission.

computer—cows do type and hens go on strike leaving everyone between a rock and
a hard place. This new musical from Theatreworks USA gives grownups a chance to
teach and talk about negotiation and cooperation. Prepare for the fun and

TEDXUNDLIVE (TED CONFERENCE)
LIVE BROADCAST FROM VANCOUVER
Tuesday, March 17, 2015, 6:00 PM
Free admission. Join your colleagues and friends (6-9pm) for a simulcast (on a large screen) of the annual TED Conference where TED Talks were created. Each year, the world's leading thinkers and doers gather for the TED conference, which many describe as the highlight of their year.
The theme for TED2015 is "Truth and Dare". Great TED Talks give you a new lens on the world as it is & they offer new possibilities for the world as it might be. TED2015 is on a quest to magnify both facets. We will seek to challenge and reshape our core beliefs about today's reality. And at the same time celebrate the thinkers, dreamers and mavericks who offer bold new alternatives. See TED.com for more info and Tuesday's speakers.
Notre Dame is one of the few universities in the world to offer this webcast, which will be transmitted live from Vancouver, BC. Don't miss this rare opportunity to participate virtually in a TED conference.
NOTE: The TED2015 conference webcast will be available only at the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center. This event is separate from the TEDxUND event held on Feb 27, 2015. TEDxLive is an extension of the TEDx program, launched by TED in 2010. TEDxLive events are TEDx events built around the live webcast of TED Conferences. TEDxLive events enable TED enthusiasts all over the world to experience live sessions of the TED Conference. Some are simple viewing events, and some host live speakers.
