Upcoming Events

A Staged Reading of ‘The King of Spain’s Daughter’

Tuesday, April 16, 7 p.m.

Written by Irish playwright Teresa Deevy, “The King of Spain’s Daughter” was first performed at the Abbey Theater in Dublin in 1935.

This comedy-drama explores the plight of Annie Kinsella, a young woman who dreams of romance and adventure but finds herself living in a bleak world which offers her the unhappy choice of working in a factory or becoming someone’s wife, a prospect she finds equally oppressive. That is unless the devoted Jim Harris can prove to her that beneath his humble, homespun exterior, he is a man of deep and abiding passions.

For more information, call 203-582-3500.

Wednesday, April 24, 7 p.m. 

The spring concert will feature more than 20 students who will perform a range of classical and contemporary styles of music. 

The hour-long concert is free and open to the public.

Vesna Mehinovic, an adjunct professor in the Department of Visual and Performing Arts, is the director of the symphony orchestra.
