October 2, 2019 I The Clarion Arts & Life Page 3 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. The event was sponsored by the Campus Activities Board. 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.”
