Black History Month, a Celebration


Black History Month

This weekend, the Forum Players Theatre Company presents Black History Month, a Celebration.

This multi-arts event takes the stage in celebration of Black History Month and features a collage of songs, dance, poetry, monologues and a one act play celebrating the achievements of black Americans and recognizing the central role of African Americans in U.S. history.

Excerpts from Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “I Have a Dream…” and Reverend Jesse Jackson’s “Rainbow Coalition” will be included. This event promises to both excite and educate the audience.

G-Dub the Cougar is MISSING!


At the scene of G-Dub’s last known whereabouts, Campus Safety officers retrieved a scrap of paper with the website typed on it. The website introduces a game open to all students, faculty, staff and members of the community to solve the case. By attending campus events and online locations, participants receive clues to help determine who kidnapped G-Dub, how he/she did it and where G-Dub is currently being held.

Four GCC faculty and staff members have been named as suspects in the case: Director of Student Activities Cliff Scutella, Athletics Assistant Ron Spoitta, Director of Admissions Tanya Lane-Martin and First Year Experience Professor Dr. Tom Priester.

According to Campus Safety officers, all four have the means to execute the kidnapping. The website makes note of the possible weapons used in the kidnapping, such as the College Village golf cart, as well as the following four locations G-Dub could be held by the kidnapper; the Roz Steiner Art Gallery, Campus Bookstore, Fitness Center or the Alfred C. O’Connell Library.

According to the website, correctly solving the case enters participants in a raffle to win one of three prizes:

• First Prize – Two tickets to The Forum Players’ (SOLD OUT!) Clue the Musical – $40 value, Friday November 8th, 2013 at 7 p.m.

• Second Prize – Clue the board game and Clue the movie.

• Third Prize – A GCC gear basket, donated by G-Dub the Cougar.

The first prize tickets include a dine-in mystery theatre experience based on Clue, the popular board game. Comic antics, witty lyrics and a beguiling score carry the investigation as the audience, seated at tables on stage, help solve the mystery.

The GCC Forum Players joins Genesee County Mental Health Association for their performance of Clue the Musical presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc. on November 8 and 9 at 7 p.m., as well as a matinee on November 10 at 2 p.m. All seats are $20, presale tickets only at the Genesee Community College Box Office, 1 College Road, Batavia NY, 14020 or by phone at (585) 343 – 0055 x6814.
