BLUEFIELD COLLEGE THEATRE TO PRESENT ‘CHARLOTTE’S WEB’

by | Sep 23, 2019

Bluefield College Theatre will present its adaptation of “Charlotte’s Web,” Friday and Saturday, September 27-28 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, September 29 at 3 p.m. in Harman Chapel.

Charles Reese, professor of theatre, artistic director and co-chair of the Theatre Department, says the story “is about loving and caring about people and sacrificing for them. It is about learning to see the best in yourself. It’s just sweet.”

Bluefield College Theatre presented “Charlotte’s Web” before as part of its Youth Theatre program where all the animals cast in the play were children. Now, 10 years later, BC will be doing the same script, an adaptation Reese wrote, but with all Bluefield College students, including the animal roles.

“It was a great production the last time we did it,” Reese said, “but we are hoping for a little more emotional depth with the older actors.”

Admission to the show is free for Bluefield College students, faculty, and staff with a valid Bluefield College identification card. General admission for adults is $10, while the cost for senior adults and students from any other school is $5. Tickets will be sold at the door.

Do I only apply once?

  • No. Students must apply each academic year for the fall semester and submit the necessary documents.

Do I have to take the classes specified in the Associate's Degree tracks as they are listed on the information sheet?

  • No. Students may take any of the courses that are offered in a given term.

Where do I find the textbook listing, and where do I purchase the books?

  • Log in to myBU, and under the "Student" tab, you will find a list of the textbooks required (if any) for each course. Students are responsible for purchasing their own textbooks.

How long is a semester?

  • Our semesters are divided into two 8-week terms.

Is there an orientation?

  • Yes. Students can attend an orientation session that explains how to access courses, how to register for classes, and answers other questions.

Where can I find a course description?

Does the student need to take the SAT or ACT in order to take Dual Enrollment classes?

  • No. If a student decides to study at BU full time, BU is currently test-optional for the 2021-2022 admissions cycle.

Are the classes live? Do students need to log in and participate at certain times?

  • Classes are offered online, so a student can log-on and study at their convenience and their own pace. Students have assignments due each week; you can complete your assignments at any point in time before the deadline.

Does an Early College student need to come to campus for anything?

  • No. However, we would love to have you visit our campus if you are interested in continuing with traditional on-campus study. Students who complete their associate's degree have the option to walk at our commencement ceremony.

Are Early College students able to receive Financial Aid?

  • No. However, Early College courses are very affordable compared to other options. The cost for an online Dual Enrollment course is $100 per credit hour.

How do transferring credits work?

  • Each College or University completes a transcript review in order to decide which courses transfer. Sticking to general education classes generally makes transferring credits simple. All Early College courses at Bluefield University are general education classes that should transfer to another accredited institution.

Is an Early College student considered, and treated, as a transfer student when they become a full-time college student if they have earned enough credits to be a Junior?

  • No. Since they have not graduated from high school, they are considered a first-time college student regardless of how many credits transfer. However, by transferring credits when they enroll as a full-time student, they will have to take fewer classes to receive their bachelor's degree, which shortens the length of time to earn the degree.

Can I speak to someone if I have more questions?

  • Yes. Please contact the Office of Admissions by email or you can call them at 276.326.4231
