Chairman and Founder of Transportation Insight, Paul Thompson will visit Lenoir-Rhyne University as part of the Alex Lee Leadership Lecture Series on Wednesday, February 24 at 6 p.m. in the Fintel Room of the McCrorie Center. The series is presented by LRU’s Charles M. Snipes School of Business & Economics and the Alex Lee Foundation.
The Lenoir-Rhyne University Playmakers, in partnership with the Lenoir-Rhyne Music Program, will continue their 2015-16 season with a main stage production of the award-winning musical comedy, City of Angels. The play will be performed at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday, February 24 - 27, and 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, February 28 in P.E. Monroe Auditorium.
City of Angels is a jazzy homage to the beloved film noir genre of classic Hollywood movies. The play weaves together two stories: in one plot, a 1940s writer tries to turn his detective novel into a screenplay; the other plot is the fictional movie he’s creating.
As part of its 2015-16 Speaker Series, Lenoir-Rhyne University’s Institute for Faith and Learning (IFL) will welcome Dr. Richard Lischer on Thursday, February 18 at 7 p.m. in Grace Chapel. The event is free and open to the public; no tickets or reservations are required.
