Opening Night This Friday
By Annie Baker
7:30 p.m., Sept. 23–24; Sept. 30–Oct. 1; 2 p.m. Sunday matinee, Sept. 25
About the Show: A smash hit off-Broadway, this comedy follows five students in an adult drama class in small-town Vermont. Gathering weekly at the local community center to play theater games, the characters make discoveries about themselves while their lives change in unexpected ways. Charles Isherwood of the NY Times called this play “the kind of unheralded gem that sends people into the streets babbling and bright-eyed with the desire to spread the word.”
Admission: Playhouse tickets only $3 for Stephens students and $7 for Stephens faculty and staff. $14 General; $7 Student/Senior

New Faculty Faces
In the last of our new Stephens faculty-member profiles, we feature Caroline Bartek in the School of Design and Fashion:
Name: Caroline Bartek
Department: Department of Fashion
Courses I teach: Draping/Patternmaking and Current Issues in the Fashion Industry
Reason I chose to teach at Stephens: I believe that Stephens offers a dynamic environment for learning, as well as teaching. The culture and spirit of Stephens College is one that offers a unique and rigorous fashion program. I feel that my experience in the apparel industry will be an integral part of the educational process and the blend of the two worlds will be a positive one for all.
I hope to teach every student: I hope to teach every student that the world is full of possibilities and opportunities. The importance of being open-minded to change and exploring the edges of innovation and creativity will yield students who leave Stephens as leading contributors.
The last book I read/am reading: "Parenting with Love and Logic"
Summer activities: Hiking Arches, Zion, Grand Escalante and Bryce Canyon National parks in Utah
Previous teaching experience/employment: Image apparel designer
Community involvement: I spent considerable time this summer volunteering in tornado-ravaged Joplin, Mo.
Hobbies: Running, biking, hiking, traveling and cooking
Favorite place in Columbia: Red Mango Frozen Yogurt and Shakespeare's Pizza
