'The Beauty Queen of Leenane' poster"Beauty Queen of Leenane"

Performance dates: March 24th, 25th, 26th, 27th

Sign up for a ticket in SSS before March 17th. Please indicate which performance date you want to attend.

Set in 1989 in the small village of Leenane in Connemara, Ireland, the play centers on the life of Maureen Folan, a 40-year-old maid who is the sole caregiver to her 70-year-old mother Mag. The Folan cottage is visited by the brothers Ray and Pato Dooley. The glimmer of a romance sparks up, then sputters out between Maureen and Pato, with ultimately disastrous results.

University of Minnesota 'M'Duluth Trip! May 9 - May 11

Forms and $20 deposit are due by noon Tuesday, March 31!

Anyone planning to join us will need to look at the three colleges' graduate school programs and let SSS know if there are any graduate program advisors you would like to meet with individually at the three universities. Spring break may provide you with time in your schedule to spend on this. We only want students meeting with programs they have a sincere interest in (as we don't want to waste any advisors time). If there's no program at one, two or all of the colleges, that is fine. Please note a request to not visit with any of the programs needs to be noted at SSS just the same as the ones that you do want to visit with.

Click on the following links to do your careful research!

(The earlier this is completed, the better chance you have of joining us, as space is limited!)
