Emerson has many students and organizations that host events. This is exhibited through EmConnect’s event page and the flyers on the bulletin boards. The Beacon Living Arts section went through the events for the next week and picked out a few for this week that seemed interesting.

Let’s talk about climate change

On Wednesday, Resident Assistant Libby Sweeney from the Paramount Center will host a discussion on climate change from 7-8 p.m. in the Iwasaki Library Co-Lab. Attendees will discuss current events regarding global warming and focus on what students can do to reduce our negative impact on the environment. Free food will be provided.

 

“Measure for Measure”

The play “Measure for Measure” opens Wednesday at the Emerson Cutler Majestic Theatre. It will run until Oct. 28. Touring in the U.S. for the first time, this production of Shakespeare’s play asks vital questions about how citizens are governed and exposes the true nature of authority, love, and justice. Tickets are available on Arts Emerson’s website. Emerson’s students, faculty, and staff can get one free ticket to any theatre performance, film screening or concert by presenting an Emerson ID at the box office two hours before the event, according to the Arts Emerson website. Students, faculty and staff can also purchase up to two $10 tickets in advance and additional tickets are 30 percent off.

Take me to the drag ball

On Saturday, Emerson’s Advancement Group for Love and Expression will host the 21st annual Haus of Emerson Ball at the Bill Bordy Theater from 7-10 p.m. To celebrate the end of Queer History Month and EAGLE’s Drag-Tober Fest, the theme of the drag ball will be “catwalk realness.” Student Drag Queens will compete to be “Emerson’s Next Drag Superstar.” A special guest, whose name will be announced in the following days, will also attend.
