BC Theatre Department Presents Big River at 7:30 p.m.

Big River is the Tony Award-winning musical adaptation of Mark Twain's beloved novel Huckleberry Finn. Huck and run-away slave Jim set out on an epic adventure down the Mississippi river to find their own brand of freedom. Along the way they meet a host of colorful rogues and scoundrels, but in the end Huck and Jim find their freedom through friendship and mutual respect. Big River is a rollicking good time with music by popular country music songwriter, Roger Miller.

Student Dance

Attention graduates from the past four years! The work world may have you down, your friends are at the College, and you wish you were, too. You have an open invitation to both dances! So have one night reliving your time in college, and then drop by and connect with other alumni.
