NMU to put on ‘Constellations’

MARQUETTE — Northern Michigan University’s Forest Roberts Theatre is presenting the futuristic romance “Constellations.”

Performances are at 7:30 p.m. today-Saturday and Nov. 16-18, with 1 p.m. matinees both Saturdays, in the James A. Panowski Black Box Theatre.

The play begins with a simple encounter between a man and a woman. What happens next defies the boundaries of the world as it is known, delving into infinite possibilities and raising questions about the difference between choice and destiny. Marianne and Roland’s relationship unfolds across time and space, with each variation sending them on an entirely new trajectory.

Theater professor Shelley Russell directs the play.

An opening night party is included with a ticket purchased for opening night tonight and immediately follows the show in the FRT lobby. It will feature food and beverages, music, a photo booth and a meet and greet with the cast and creative team.

Tickets are $5 for NMU students, $10 for students and $15 for the public. Tickets are available online at tickets.nmu.edu or at any NMU EZ Ticket outlet. For more information on the event, contact the Forest Roberts Theatre Box Office at 906-227-2082 or via email at frtbox@gmail.com.

‘After Oil 4’ to be discussed

MARQUETTE — The Transition Marquette County Reading Group will meet at 7 p.m. in the Conference Room at Peter White Public Library to discuss the book “After Oil 4,” edited by John Michael Greer.

The After Oil series is made up of stories submitted by readers of The Archdruid Report blog about the collapse that would/will come as oil gets more and more scarce and expensive. In this fourth and last volume in the series, the stories are of recovery in a distant future, when the industrial age has faded into myth and legend, a future in which the laws of thermodynamics and the resource limits of a finite planet function as they actually do.

Anyone is welcome to join the conversation. It would help to have at least started to read the book. For more information, call Charlie at 226-3314 or email mqtchaz@gmail.com.
