Purdue University North Central Communication 240 students will host the 26th annual Potpourri of Literature Readers’ Theatre on Tuesday, April 21 at 11 a.m. and Sunday, April 26 at 2 p.m. in the Library-Student-Faculty Building Assembly Hall, Room 02. The program is free and open to the public. It will last about one hour.
This year’s edition of Potpourri of Literature is “Mars-Venus; Venus-Mars; The Eternal Struggle” with an original script written and edited by Dr. Daniel Padberg, associate professor of Communication, who teaches the Communication 240 class. The script is a deft mix of humor, irony, melancholy and food for thought.
The Potpourri of Literature Readers’ Theatre program has been an annual feature on the PNC campus since its 1989 debut as a showcase for students in Communication 240, Introduction to Oral Interpretation. While the theme of the program changes annually and reflects various moods, trends and social issues of the day, the program is built around literature and music of varying genres that illustrate the program theme from different perspectives.
Students in the Communication 240 Introduction to Oral Interpretation class are Angela E. Barreto, New Carlisle; Jordan M. Benton, Hobart; Brandon M. Chambers, Valparaiso; Shelby K. Clindaniel, Kouts; Jordan Hancock, Mishawaka; Sarah Maddox, Rolling Prairie; Maria Elena Miller, Michigan City; Griselda Montanez, La Porte; Logan A. Moore, Valparaiso; Joe Reed, Jackson Township; Kaitlyn N. Snyder, LaPorte; Timothy J. Stephens, LaPorte; Kristen Wozniak, LaPorte and Chrystal L. Ziegler, LaPorte.
