Back to the '90s party
By Amber Vance
staff Writer
The Back to the ’90s Party was held at 9 p.m.
on Friday, Sept. 27. After what had begun as a
slow start, the party became quite lively as more
people arrived. For those of you who could not
make it you missed out!
The party had plenty of good food, drinks and
a best dressed contest. The music for the party
was provided by a professional DJ named Molly
that made you just want to ‘cut loose’ and dance
to the beats.
There was also a photo booth with ’90s
themed props, such as cool signs and sunglasses,
manned by Thom Kennedy as well as photos
taken throughout the party by Jen Cox.
This event was sponsored by the Campus
Activity Board, which hosts one party per
semester. Last year the 90s party was successful
so rather than a Halloween Party it was decided
that a ’90s party would be held.
Student leaders Brandon Lewis and Jameiya
Mills lead the organizing for the event. They
even cooked food for the party including baked
beans and meatballs.
Toward the end of the event, votes were cast
on the best dressed winner. The winner of the
best dressed contest went to Brandon Crawford.
It was a fun event that looks to be an annual
thing. Next time, check out what CAB might be
planning and head on out for some fun.
Saved by the bell! Students pose In ’90s attire at Friday’s party, where they competed In a costume contest.

Shakespeare is quaking in his boots
BC Theatre presents David Ives ’ ‘The Liar ’
By Sam Hipp
staff Writer
Brevard College’s Theatre Department truly
kicks off the fall semester with a production of
“The Liar,” written by playwright David Ives.
This play is an adaptation of a French play, Le
Menteur by Pierre Comielle. This adaptation,
entirely performed in verse, follows the
traditional set-up for a Shakespearian comedy.
The story begins in Paris, 1643, with two
dashing young men, Dorante and Cliton, played
by the wonderfully charming Anthony Zuniga
and K’nique Eichelberger respectively. The two
each suffer a fatal flaw, one cannot tell a lie and
the other cannot tell the truth. Hilarity ensues as
the two pursue their desires in the city of love.
They encounter two ladies named Clarice
and Lucrece, played by actors Lisa Arrona and
Claudia Dahlman, who give the liar Dorante a
run for his money, which he never gives to his
honest manservant, Cliton. More trouble brews
as a jealous, sword-swinging and foppish fiance
gets involved in the mix.
Also involved in this story is Dorante’s
concerned and confused father, a blonde
manservant and a maid with a seemingly split
personality. These characters all add to the
comedy and confusion that this show provided
to its audience. This show is also filled with
energetic motions of running and leaping across
the slanted stage, complemented with sword
swinging, slapping and a bit of dancing.
The dialogue of this show utilized verse and
using dirty humor within that verse, making this
a truly Shakespearian comedy.
The production of this show was bolstered
by charming actors, exquisite costumes, an
interesting set and a wonderful production
team. This is certainly a campus production to
be well-remembered.
Eichelberger and Zuniga rehearse for BC Theatre’s
production of David Ives’ “The Liar.”
