Stories of the Immigrant Experience: "Ancestral Voices"- Saturday, May 17


Contributed by Kathleen Mulligan

BFA Acting and Musical Theatre Majors perform original monologues based on interviews with parents, grandparents, aunts, and uncles from 2 pm to 3 pm Saturday in the Clark Theatre, Dillingham Center.

Each year the students in Dialects for the Stage are asked to interview family members and create original monologues in the voice of an ancestor. The resulting project "Ancestral Voices" shares stories of Polish, Israeli, French, Puerto Rican, Italian, German, and Russian immigrants and their families. Admission is free.

Individuals with disabilities requiring accommodations should contact Kathleen Mulligan at or (607) 274-3927. We ask that requests for accommodations be made as soon as possible.
