FINAL CREATED EQUAL PRESENTATION EXAMINES FREEDOM RIDERS
Presentation part of CC’s Humanities Festival

The final presentation in the Created Equal film series at Casper College will feature the Emmy-winning film “Freedom Riders” on Friday, Feb. 28 as part of Casper College’s 29th Annual Humanities Festival and Demorest Lecture.

The winner of three Primetime Emmy Awards in 2011 – Outstanding Writing for Nonfiction Programming, Outstanding Picture Editing for Nonfiction Programming, and Exceptional Merit in Nonfiction Filmmaking – “’Freedom Riders’ is the powerful, harrowing, and ultimately inspirational story of six months in 1961 that changed America forever, said Tanis Lovercheck-Saunders, Casper College history instructor.

“From May until November 1961, more than 400 black and white Americans risked their lives – and many endured savage beatings and imprisonment – for simply traveling together on buses and trains as they journeyed through the Deep South. Deliberately violating Jim Crow laws, the Freedom Riders met with bitter racism and mob violence along the way, sorely testing their belief in nonviolent activism,” noted Lovercheck-Saunders.

“Freedom Riders” will be shown in the Wheeler Concert Hall located in the Music Building on the Casper College campus beginning at noon and is free and open to the public. During the presentation, scenes from the documentary on the Freedom Riders of the Civil Rights Movement will be viewed and Lovercheck-Saunders will lead a discussion on their stories and connect their experiences to today's civil rights issues.

The Created Equal film series is made possible through a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, as part of its Bridging Cultures initiative, in partnership with the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History.

EVOLUTION AND EXTINCTION SUBJECT OF TALKS AT TATE

The Tate Geological Museum will be the site of an upcoming series of three talks on evolution and extinction. The first talk, “Countering Creationism: Tips and Tactics,” is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 10.

“Over a century and a half after the publication of Charles Darwin’s ‘On the Origin of Species,’ there are still many Americans, roughly half according to the most recent Gallup Poll, who believe in a literal interpretation of the Biblical account of the creation of the Earth and of its plants and animals,” said Russell Hawley, presenter. “Educators and museum workers therefore frequently find themselves challenged about their presentation of evolutionary principles, or questioned about the validity of evolutionary science. Those unfamiliar with the strategies most commonly used by creationists are often ill equipped to defend the theory of evolution from its detractors,” Hawley, Tate Geological Museum education specialist, noted. Hawley will draw upon his years of experience to counter the claims made by creationists and provide some useful tips and tactics for educators who wish to explain to the layperson why the theory of evolution is valid.

A question and answer session will follow the presentation, which will take place in Room 123 of the Tate Geological Museum.

The other two talks will be presented by Franz-Peter Griesmaier from the University of Wyoming, on Monday, March 17, and Scott Seville, from the University of Wyoming at Casper, on Monday, April 14. All talks are free and open to the public.

“AMADEUS” COMES TO MCMURRY MAINSTAGE AT KRAMPERT

The Tony award-winning play “Amadeus” by Peter Shaffer comes to the McMurry Mainstage beginning with a Wednesday night performance, as part of the 29th Annual Casper College Humanities Festival, on Wednesday, Feb. 26, 2014.

Directed by Douglas Garland and starring William Conte as Antonio Salieri and Cyle Hart as Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, “Amadeus” looks at “the fatal rivalry between the young, genius composer Mozart and the established court composer Salieri,” said Garland, Casper College theatre instructor.

“How far is too far in pursuit of recognition? Would even murder be too extreme?” asked Garland. “This is exactly the position Salieri has put himself in in Shaffer’s marvelous retelling of the story of the competition between Salieri and the young, genius composer, Mozart.” Featuring lavish costumes, Mozart’s music, and the sumptuous court of 1789’s Vienna as the backdrop, “Amadeus” is a “tale of envy, murder, and genius unrecognized,” Garland said.

The cast of 18 “has been a wonderful cast and they followed my lead as I asked them to change the way they walk, talk, stand, and think about the theatre to draw the audience into our story world,” Garland said. Conte, instructor of theatre history and literature at Casper College, recently directed the 2013 holiday productions of “The Long Christmas Dinner” and “The Second Shepherd’s’ Play. Hart, a sophomore musical theatre student from Thermopolis, Wyo., performed the role of Roderick Bayard II in “The Long Christmas Dinner.”

Theatregoers will also be treated to performances by members of the Casper College Opera Workshop in the Krampert Theatre lobby. Under the direction of Kristen Lenth, Casper College music instructor, the goal of the group “is to share the fun and joy of opera with people of all ages and backgrounds,” she said.

“Amadeus” will run February 26 through 28, March 1, and March 5 through 8 each night at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, March 9 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $12 for adults and $10 for students ages 5 to 18. Tickets can be purchased at the Krampert Theatre Complex box office between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. Monday through Friday, by phone at 307-268-2500, one hour before each performance, for that performance only, or online at caspercollege.edu/theatre.

SECOND EVOLUTION AND EXTINCTION TALK FEATURES UW PROF

The second in a series of three talks on evolution and extinction will be held on Monday, March 17 at the Tate Geological Museum.

“Darwin’s Watch: The Design Argument in Light of Evolution” will be presented by Franz-Peter Griesmaier, associate professor of philosophy and originally from Stockerau, Austria. “Before the publication of Darwin’s 'Origin of Species,' the argument from design was arguably deserving of some degree of rational consent. When one notices the marvelous integration of an organism’s parts, and how they collectively contribute to its functioning in a given environment, one cannot help but wonder whether such organisms could really have come about by mere accident, or whether it is not more reasonable to attribute their existence to the efforts of a designer,” said Griesmaier. “In this talk, I will discuss how Darwin’s conceptual and empirical discoveries revealed that random forces and divine design are not the only two options for explaining the observed features of organisms,” he said.

A question and answer session will follow the presentation, which will take place in Room 123 of the Tate Geological Museum.

The final talk will be presented by Scott Seville, associate dean of outreach and professor of zoology and physiology from the University of Wyoming at Casper, on Monday, April 14. Both talks are free and open to the public.

MAMMALS ON MOUNTAINTOPS TOPIC OF ZIMMERMAN

The Casper College Zimmerman Lecture Series will feature a presentation by Hayley C. Lanier, Ph.D. titled: “Mammals on Mountaintops: How Climate and Geography Drive Alpine Diversity” on Tuesday, February 25 at 7 p.m.

Lanier, whose “research interests are broadly focused on the evolution and ecology of mammals” noted that her talk would focus on “how mountain ranges and long term changes in temperature act to shape populations of small mammals, such as pikas and marmots along with short-term effects, such as the isolation of populations and the role of the winter snowpack, and long-term effects, such as the movements of glaciers across the landscape, which act to shape population variation over many generations,” said Lanier.

According to Lanier, her presentation will include a PowerPoint, which will feature “cool pictures of mammals, mountains, and fieldwork (bush planes, helicopters, etc.), many taken by well-known wildlife photographer Moose Peterson.”

Lanier, an assistant professor in the Department of Zoology and Physiology at the University of Wyoming at Casper received her bachelor’s in ecology and evolutionary biology from the University of Kansas and her doctorate in biology from the University of Alaska, Fairbanks.

The presentation, which is free and open to all, will take place in the Wheeler Auditorium, Room 103 of the Wold Physical Science Center.

VOCAL CONCERT FEATURES “PICTURES IN SOUND”

The Casper College Choirs will present “Pictures in Sound: The Art of Text-Painting” concert on Sunday, March 2, 2014 at 3 p.m.

“The concert will focus on the many different ways that composers use music to paint text,” said Zachary Vreeman, choral instructor and director. “Sometimes it is done by creating a mood with the musical environment at large, sometimes with the shaping of a specific melody to the rhythm of the text, and some with very specific musical motives to paint single words, like imitations of wind, rain, and even frogs. Each piece shows that feature differently, and has been the topic of study in our rehearsals so far this semester,” Vreeman noted.

The Casper College Men’s Choir will begin the concert with a variety of songs including “Plaisir d’ amour,” “Mouth Music,” and “Soon-ah Will Be Done.” The Casper College Women’s Choir will perform “I Am Not Yours, “the/sky/was,” “In the Spring Sea,” and “a Girl’s Garden.”
