Great American Masters: Mary Cassatt (1844–1926) and American Impressionism
Wednesday, October 28 | 12:15 p.m.
Determined to be an artist, feisty Cassatt moved to Paris, befriended the French Impressionists, and focused on portraits of women and children.

Theorem with Greg Kennedy
Friday, October 30 | 7:30 p.m.
Saturday, October 31 | 3:00 p.m. (Family fun performance. Costumes encouraged.)
After touring worldwide with Cirque du Soleil for five years, Greg Kennedy is getting rave reviews for his newest production, Theorem. The two-time international juggling champion and his cast of circus artists perform a show that playfully explores the process of invention through modern manipulation. Theorem is filled with striking, powerful images, and features live music, five-person choreography, aerial acrobatics and Greg’s largest dynamic structures.
Originally trained as an engineer, Kennedy uses the principles of geometry and physics to create groundbreaking work with original apparatus. As a young juggler, he quickly made a name for himself in the juggling community not only by his mastery of traditional juggling technique, but also for creating entirely new forms of manipulation. He is now renowned for his many original contributions to juggling as an art form. Jugglers know him for his award-winning creativity; audiences know him for his entertaining performance, making visual spectacles out of everyday objects.
Student balcony tickets are available for advance purchase in person at the box office for $5. Student rush orchestra tickets (subject to availability) are available for purchase at the box office on the day of the event.
