In Bertolt Brecht’s “The Good Person of Setzuan” the Gods search for one good person in the town of Setzuan, a town full of corrupt, immoral citizens. In honor of Ithaca College Theatre's production of “The Good Person of Setzuan” we are searching for the good people of Ithaca, NY. Do you know of someone who loves Ithaca? Someone who works hard for the community and its residents? Do they volunteer? Do they glow with kindness? If you know someone that fits this description nominate them as “The Good Person of Ithaca, NY”!

Ithaca College Theatre students are joining with Ithaca High School students for a day of theatre exploration and learning via Arthur Miller’s “The Crucible” on Thursday April 24 at Ithaca High School.
The day will consist of nine workshops pertaining to different elements and themes in Arthur Miller’s classic play. All juniors at Ithaca High School will be attending a student performance of “The Crucible” on April 25th at 10am, and the workshops are a way of educating the students about the play using methods other than literature and lecture. “The workshops allow students to turn their knowledge into action”, says Katlyn Rapini ’14, coordinator of the program.
