ingham 203 may sound like
any other classroom on cam
pus, but what makes this
; room special is the unique drama
productions that are put together
j and performed there.
"The 'performance room is the
i best thing to call it," said Paul Fer
j guson, assistant professor of speech
i communication and production
i coordinator for the department's
j Performance Studies Program.
, Ferguson's job is to organize and
I schedule all departmental perfor
! mance events. He described
! Bingham 203 as the center space, or
J heart, of the program, but other spa

! event fits more easily somewhere
! Although sponsored by the speech
! communication department, the per
! formance events are designed for the
! entire student body. The majority of
J them are free.
Speech communication major
J Laurie Corley has been in several
J performance studies events. After
going to class, rehearsing and per-
forming in Bingham 203, Corley
! said she sometimes feels like she
J lives there.
The performances, based on
poems, short stories and novel -
excerpts, differ from most plays, she
J said. "With a regular play or movie,
J dialogue between two people is often
' used to make what someone else has
; written come alive. We take a book
; and allow the narrator to continue
to describe the scene, using minimal
Corley said the key term is litera
ture. "It is an oral interpretation of
literature," she said.
Martha Hardy, professor of
speech communication, has been
with the program since its inception
in 1967. For the first few seasons, 10
to 14 readers' theater shows were
presented a year. "But we didn't
! have a place to call home," Hardy
Even after the speech communica
. tion department moved from the
basement of Caldwell Hall into
, Bingham Hall in 1970, there was still
no place to do this kind of work.
Performances were presented in
' almost every conceivable place, she
said, including a production of "The

It's the the same old song and dance
for the North Carolina baseball team.
Tar Heel pitchers allowed only five
earned runs over 22 innings in
yesterday's doubleheader against
Coastal Carolina. Unfortunately,
their offense could only muster five
of their own.
That translated into a split, with
UNC taking the first game 2-1 and
losing the second 5-3 in 13 innings.
The Tar Heels also split the season
series with the Chanticleers 2-2.
North Carolina's record went to 20

"Luckily, it didn't rain," she said.
When Bingham Hall was remod
eled in 1980, Bingham 203 was
designed by Hardy and Associate
Professor of Speech Communica
tion Howard Doll as a multipurpose
room that could Jbe used for a var
iety of classes and productions.
"We tried to design it so there
could be performances in every part
of the room," Hardy said.
Bingham 203 holds 1 10 people,
and most performances draw a
standing room only crowd. .
Corley was in last semester's pro
duction of "Like a Family," based
on a history book written by UNC
students about mill workers.
After performing in mill towns
across North Carolina and South
Carolina, the students returned to
UNC and presented "Like a Family"
to a packed house.
Ferguson said the events usually
operate in conjunction with other
classes. For instance, speech stu
dents might be asked to attend a
certain number of solo, performan
ces. "But they are intended for the

mostly speech communication

Ferguson said the University's
speech communication department
has become so reputable that it
draws very talented students from
across the nation. "The level of work
in there is often very exciting."
The Performance Studies Pro
gram has sponsored 13 major events
since January and has a few remain
ing on the calendar this semester.
"Clear Acrylic Enamel" will be
presented free of charge April 14
and 15 at 8 p.m. in Bingham 203.
Adapted from a short story by Rod

directed by John Wat.

Director Amy Rosenberg said she
wanted to end the Lab season with
a fun, upbeat musical that would be
different from previous Lab produc
tions. "This is a stressful time of year.
I want people to come in, sit down
for an hour and relax."
The play, written by Clark Gesner,
is based on the "Peanuts" comic strip
by Charles Schultz. "Watching the
play is like watching a comic strip
a day in the life of the Peanuts
gang," said Rosenberg, who is a
Steve Estroff crushed a one-out
double off the centerfield wall. After
Ron Maurer grounded out, Darren
Villani ripped an RBI double just
inside the third base line.
The other Tar Heel run came
courtesy of a gift from losing pitcher
Randy Stokes. Tom Nevin lead off
the fifth with a single to left, and Jesse
Levis base hit to right moved him
to third. Stokes then unleashed a wild
pitch to score Nevin.
Stokes was a hard-luck loser,
however, as he gave up only five hits
over eight innings. He entered the
game with a record of 7-1 and a 2.48
earned run average.
Fortunately, North Carolina was
able to match Stokes pitch for pitch.

Senior Ian Williams, who plays
Charlie Brown, said, "It's like looking

"You're a Good Man, Charlie

Every birth, every change, calls

cankerous worm, and in our
beginning is our end. So in this
time of spring, with the semester's
end, graduation and separation
around the corner, it is apt that
the Carolina Choir and the UNC
Wind Symphony should, in their
last concert of the year, play death
The Carolina Choir will sing
Gabriel Faure's "Requiem," or
"Mass for the Dead," Saturday at
8 p.m., and Sunday at 4 p.m. the
UNC Wind Symphony's concert
will include Richard Wagner's
"Trauersinfonie," a funeral march
written for fellow composer Carl
von Weber. Both concerts will
take place in Hill Hall.
The first half of the Carolina
Choir concert will feature the
UNC Chamber Singers, perform
ing music of French composers

Lenten Motets, by Francis Pou

The original orchestration was
edited and published three years
ago by John Rutter, said assistant
professor Susan Klebanow, who
directs both choral groups. It dates
from 1893 and calls for violas,
cello, horns and harp.
Faure's "Requiem" is . usually
performed with a full violin section
and more wind and brass.
The "Requiem" is a quiet and
contemplative piece. "It is restful,

Bobby Hargett held the Tar Heels
scoreless over the first five innings.
Hargett entered the game with a 6

North Carolina finally got on the
board in the sixth. With two outs,
Hughes singled to right and Mark
Kingston followed with a perfect hit-and-run
base hit. Ron Maurer's RBI
grounder into left field was only the
Tar Heels fourth hit in their last 38
at-bats with runners in scoring
With one out in the seventh, Levis
cranked Hargett's 3-1 offering over
the right-field wall for his third home
run of the year. -
With UNC trailing 3-2 in the
eighth, Jackson walked Coastal's
lead-off man and struck out the next

batter with a wild pitch, Roberts

Unfortunately for UNC, that was
the closest they would get to Logue.

three hits and struck out four over
4 23 innings. But the 13th proved
unlucky for Lanier as Grose led off
with an inside-the-park home run.
His drive to right stuck in the outfield
fence and Hughes raised his hands
while Nevin searched for the ball. By
the time Nevin threw the ball in,

double, but to no avail. Roberts
