Preview: The Oscars
It’s that time of year when the conversation starter is something like: “Felicity Jones or Rosamund Pike?” or maybe, “Michael Keaton or Eddie Redmayne?” A person’s thoughts turn to the allure of the silver screen and hope that artistic merit wins over mere power of celebrity.
An imperfect system
Although the Oscars are typically a reliable and respected establishment, it comes as no surprise that the system isn’t perfect.
Among the common criticisms is the possibility of ...
Student Spotlight – Danielle Hutchison: Pianist
As “Fiddler on the Roof” is performed in the Devries Theatre, you’ll hear music, see dancing and watch characters come to life. But Danielle Hutchison heard the music long before opening night.
Hutchison, a junior music major and rehearsal pianist for “Fiddler,” had learned much of the music by last fall’s auditions for the show, said Chandler Hull, who plays Tevye’s daughter Tzeitel.
“She mastered this music,” Hull said. “It’s difficult music, and she came into ...

Album Review: ‘I Will Follow’
Jeremy Camp’s latest album “I Will Follow” is much more high-energy than his previous albums, and though the lyrics are still convicting, this album’s songs are a little less likely to be sung during Sunday morning worship. Heavy percussion, a quick tempo and lyric-filled songs sum up the majority of the album.
The album’s first track, “Living Word,” places you right into the jump-and-dance, fist-pumping, Christian-concert-like music that’s the majority of the album. “Liv...

Review: ‘Fiddler on the Roof’
Cedarville’s “Fiddler on the Roof” resonated well with the majority of the crowd as opening night ended with a standing ovation.
The show begins outside of Tevye’s home in Anatevka, and the audience is introduced to the fiddler on the roof. Tevye sets up the play with this metaphor: “But here, in our little village of Anatevka, you might say every one of us is a fiddler on the roof trying to scratch out a pleasant, simple tune without breaking his neck.”
The citizens of ...
