CVU will hold its annual Clothing Swap on Thursday, April 20 from 8:15 to 3:25 in the mini-gym. All items are free.
We are looking for any sizes/types of clothing for the Clothes Drive. Clean tops, bottoms, shoes, and coats are welcome. Donations can happen at any time between now and Wednesday, April 19 and can be dropped off at Room 120.
After the swap, the clothes will be split between upcycling RISE groups and Twice is Nice, our local thrift store that benefits the Hinesburg Community Resource Center.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or myself with any questions.
Come see the CVU student directed One Act Plays on Friday, May 5 to Sunday, May 7. Support your friends and fellow hawks in this drama and comedy duo. You’re sure to be entertained! This year students will perform two One Acts - Hamlet and the Actor’s Nightmare:
In William Shakespeare's Hamlet, directed by seniors Rory McDermott and Francesca Krol, the ghost of the King of Denmark tells his son Hamlet (played by sophomore Clark Clark) to avenge his murder by killing the new king, Hamlet's uncle (played by senior Phoenix Caldwell). Hamlet feigns madness, contemplates life and death, and seeks revenge. His uncle, fearing for his life, also devises plots to kill Hamlet.
The Actor's Nightmare
The Actor's Nightmare is a short comic play by Christopher Durang. It involves an accountant named George Spelvin (played by junior Nate McNabb), who is mistaken for an actor's understudy and forced to perform in a play for which he does not know any of the lines. Directed by seniors Gabby Lindenmeyr, Ian Story, and Eric Carroll, this show is sure to get a laugh out of you!
