The Big Event through the Years

5 Big Years

Five is the magic number.
Nearly 550 volunteers participated at nearly 55 jobsites during the fifth annual The Big Event Saturday. The Big Event is a one-day, student-based community service day. The event started at Texas A&M University, College Station, in 1982. Shaunda French, communication and social sciences associate professor, brought TBE to CSC in 2013.

30 plays in 60 minutes

“Too Much Light Makes The Baby Go Blind:” 30 plays within a play. If that doesn’t sound tricky enough for you, throw in the fact that it’s timed. This play of 30 plays is performed within a 60-minute time frame, making each an average two minutes long. This play features the neo-futurists, which simply means the cast members act as themselves. They are dressed in their ordinary, every day clothes and are addressed by their own names as the program suggests. It’s a unique and refreshing concept compared to an ordinary play one would see, where actors actually perform as someone else’s identity.
