Playing Like a Girl: Tales of a Feminist Gamer
Thursday, 2/19/2015 7:00 PM-9:00 PM
Clark University: Dana Commons, Higgins Lounge, Second Floor, 950 Main Street, Worcester, MA - Free
Can girls and women be gamers? This seemingly simple question reveals more complex debates about identity, community, and power in the world of video games and beyond. In August of 2014, many feminist gamers became targets of #GamerGate, an Internet harassment campaign that moved from the virtual to the real world. In this talk, gamer, feminist, and media scholar Nina Huntemann will draw upon her own experiences and in-depth interviews with other self-identified feminist gamers to decipher #GamerGate and to explore four decades of the marginalization of female gamers. Her goal is not to lament the exclusion of women from gaming, but instead to demonstrate how feminist theory and theories of play constructively intersect, upending long-held assumptions about gender and video games.

Sundays, Fridays, Saturdays, 3/6/2015 - 3/8/2015
Hanover Theatre for the Performing Arts, 2 Southbridge St., Worcester, MA - Tickets for I LOVE LUCY: LIVE ON STAGE are currently available
I LOVE LUCY® LIVE ON STAGE is the brand-new hit stage show adapted from the most beloved program in television history! Americas favorite foursome  Lucy, Ricky, Fred and Ethel  is live on stage and in color for the very first time!

Its 1952 and you are a member of the studio audience awaiting the filming of two hilarious and oh-so-familiar I LOVE LUCY® episodes. Imagine stepping back in time onto the Desilu Playhouse soundstage where a charming host entertains and enlightens you to the behind-the-scenes filming process, the 1950s hi-fidelity technology and this brand-new thing called television. The episodes begin and you witness, firsthand, the side-splitting antics of that crazy redhead in the Ricardos New York apartment and thrill to the Cuban sounds of The Ricky Ricardo Orchestra at the famed Tropicana Nightclub. In-between scenes? The Crystaltone Singers perform live advertising jingles of the shows newest sponsors in perfect 50s style harmony. Can you say Brylcreem?!

L.A. Examiners Ron Irwin says I LOVE LUCY® LIVE ON STAGE is an absolutely brilliant and utterly engaging tribute to that iconic television show! TV Guides William Keck calls it the most entertaining stage production Ive seen in years  including Broadway!

The truth is in the title  whether young or old, everybody really does LOVE LUCY!
