1.  S/U OPTION DEADLINE is TODAY at 5:00 o'clock.
2. Staging The Jesus Spiders of Central Park (Professor Homan): This course
is a natural extension of earlier Honors courses where students assisted
Professor Homan in productions of Shakespeare's Julius Caesar and As You
Like It. Here, fourteen Honors students will stage the premier of a new play
by the distinguished New York playwright and director, Caroline Thomas. Like
Albee's Zoo Story or Beckett's Waiting for Godot, The Jesus Spiders of
Central Park is an "encounter" play, here the meeting between a young man
lost in New York's Central Park and a bag lady who makes the park her home.
The play is alternately comic and tragic, real and surreal, as the encounter
itself becomes a metaphor for all human interaction. We will stage the play
April 18 and 19 at the Acrosstown Repertory Theatre, with two separate
casts. Thus, of the fourteen students in the course, four will be onstage as
actors; the other ten will function as co-directors with Professor Homan,
and will also attend to costumes, props, sound, lighting, stage management,
house management, and publicity. The playwright herself will be in residence
at the time of the production, and will conduct special seminars for the
cast and crew. Our experience with The Jesus Spiders of Central Park will
later become a chapter in a projected book called Theatrical Challenges.
Some acting experience is necessary if you wish to try out for a part; some
experience in the theatre will be useful if you wish to work in other
capacities in the production. To be admitted to the course, all applicants
must have an interview (and if they wish to try out for a part, an audition
which involves cold reading,) with Professor Homan as early as possible
during the fall semester. To arrange for an interview or audition, please
call him at home (378-9166) or contact by e-mail ([log in to unmask]).

My name is Adrian McClain and I'm a Senior at UF and an Honors Program
alum (you may have seen me at some of the recent SHO events) writing you
with a great opportunity!  I am currently recruiting staff members for a
huge event coming up in February-that's right, it's so big, we're already
planning for it.  The event is called Residence Hall Week, but don't let the
name fool don't have to live on-campus to participate.  The basic
idea behind RHW is celebrating being students at UF and having lots of FUN!
:)  The calendar right now consists of nine events, all of which are big
programs on their own, over an eight-day period, which are joined together
to make for one huge party!  There will definitely be a concert featuring
several bands one day, UF's very own Mardi Gras another, and the culmination
will be a semi-formal casino nightclub extravaganza...and that's just to
name a few.  Sound good to you?  Visit to find out more about each of
the events we are planning and the responsibilities of our staff members.
Then, fill out an application by Monday, September 15th!  I'm looking for
some talented and dedicated individuals who want to do something great for
their fellow students.  Feel free to email me if you have any questions!
