’12 Ophelias’ continues this weekend at UNO

With a setting like "Water. Road. Time.," the audience at UNO's opening night performance of "12 Ophelias (A Play with Broken Songs)" knew they were in for a different kind of production.


Making Us Conscious: ‘The Maids’

The Collective Unconscious—a student-run theatre in Omaha—held their second production, "The Maids," July 27 through 30 and Aug. 4 through 6. The one-act play was performed at UNO's Weber Fine Arts Building, beginning at 7:30 pm on the scheduled dates. General admission was $8, and one dollar from each ticket sold was donated to the Nebraska Chapter of the ACLU, as the Collective Unconscious is a non-profit organization.


64th annual Emmys another success

Jimmy Kimmel hosted the 2012 Primetime Emmys on Sun., Sept. 23 live on ABC from the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles.  The late-night talk show host got some decent laughs in his opening monologue when he joked about and poked fun at Honey Boo Boo (as expected) and even talked politics.

Slightly Stoopid still has a following. Proof of that was at the band's Omaha concert.


War a fascinating topic for students

War is a terrible part of the human experience. During my lifetime there have been U.S. military operations in Honduras, Panama, Somalia, Liberia, Serbia, Bosnia and Libya. This list is brief and doesn't even include the current War on Terror or Operation Desert Storm, but the point is that war as an institution has been a part of all of our realities in one way or another for our entire lives.


Sound Shapes’ mixes making music with game play

"Sound Shapes" lies somewhere between a music creation tool and two-dimensional platformer. It's closer to the latter, but playing "Sound Shapes" is as much about creating a song as it is reaching the end of the level.
