“Lysistrata,” written by Aristophanes and translated by Dudley Fitts, is a comedy set in ancient Greece, where there seems to be no end to the Peloponnesian War. The main character, Lysistrata, convinces the women of Sparta and Athens to withhold sexual privileges from their husbands until they negotiate peace. Comedy and ancient ideals come to a head as Aristophanes explores the effects of war and the lengths many will go to end it.

The anti-war play, first staged in 411 B.C. during the Festival of Dionysus, has been produced all over the world. This production is a sophisticated and timeless play that explores ageless ideas with suggestive language and sexual imagery.

“Lysistrata” is directed by Helen Housley, associate professor of theatre. Scenic and lighting designs are by student designers Sidney Mullis and Christopher Stull, respectively. Costume design is by Associate Professor Kevin McCluskey, and sound design is by guest artist, Anthony Angelini.

Tickets are $18 for standard admission and $16 for students, senior citizens, alumni and military. For more information or to purchase tickets, call the Klein Theatre Box Office at (540) 654-1111 or visit http://umw.tix.com/.

Women’s Club Soccer Team Headed to National Championships

The University of Mary Washington women’s club soccer team competed in the 2013 NIRSA National Championships in Phoenix, Arizona. UMW was the only NCAA Division III program in the entire championship bracket.

The women's club soccer team will compete in the NIRSA national championships this week.

The women’s club soccer team will compete in the NIRSA national championships this week.

The tournament was canceled on Saturday, Nov. 23 due to unsafe playing conditions.

The team left for Phoenix on Wednesday, Nov. 20 and had its first match on Thursday, Nov. 21 against Vanderbilt University. The open division, in which UMW is competing, includes Division II and Division I schools like Cornell University, the University of Colorado and the University of Virginia. The UMW team played Colorado on Friday, Nov. 22.

This marks the first time that one of UMW’s club soccer programs has competed in a national championship.

“We are very excited to compete on the national stage and are proud to represent UMW,” said Mark Mermelstein, director of campus recreation.

NIRSA: Leaders in Collegiate Recreation, formerly known as the National Intramural-Recreational Sports Association, was founded in 1950 to support collegiate recreation across the country. More than 2,000 athletes from 96 teams will play at the NIRSA national soccer championships this year.

100-Plus UMW Students Volunteer for Annual ‘Into the Streets’

Bracing Saturday’s oddly humid October weather, more than 100 University of Mary Washington students gave up their weekend slumber to team with various community service organizations through “Into the Streets,” an annual event sponsored by Community Outreach and Resources (COAR). A group of UMW students prepared nearly 10,000 meals for the organization Stop Hunger Now. The volunteers constructed rain barrels with Friends of the Rappahannock, packaged meals with Stop Hunger Now, built picnic tables with Habitat for Humanity, cooked meals at the Micah Respite Recovery house and spruced up the City Cemetery on William Street. Christina Eggenberger, director of service at the Center for Honor, Leadership, and Service, was pleased with the student turnout. “We mobilized more volunteers this year than in years past, and we were able to make a measureable impact on the Fredericksburg community as well as globally,” she said. Eggenberger and the rest of COAR staff provided volunteers with Into the Streets T-shirts, a Chick Fil-A breakfast and Vocelli’s pizza for lunch after their hard work. Through their morning of service, volunteers were able to see the difference they could make over only a few hours of labor. “It shows students ways they can get involved in Fredericksburg, and it shows our community that students want to be a part of the larger community,” Eggenberger said. “They see themselves as Fredericksburg residents, not just UMW students.” Students working with Friends of the Rappahannock (FOR) on Saturday constructed 20 rain barrels, using power tools and listening to music on Ball Circle in the process. Students prepared a meal at Micah Ministries as part of Into the Streets. UMW senior David Chambers, environmental educator at FOR, said the job of a rain barrel is to collect running water from roofs, storing the water for future use instead of letting it run off and eventually find its way to local streams and rivers. This water runoff can lead to increased stream bank erosion, flooding and water pollution, according to the FOR website. FOR sells the barrels for $75, a less expensive alternative to the barrels sold at retail stores. The barrels used also are economical since they would alternatively end up in a landfill. Another group of about 60 students worked in Lee Hall with the Stop Hunger Now organization to ready some 10,000 meals to be sent around the world. Students spent the morning packaging the nutrient dense food packs of rice, dehydrated soy and dehydrated vegetables into cardboard boxes to be mailed. Stop Hunger Now is an international food hunger relief organization that works with local partners to package food to be sent to about 65 different countries, according to Hannah Craddock, assistant program manager at the Richmond headquarters. Craddock led students through the process of packaging the meals throughout the morning. Off campus, four students, including junior COAR council member, Sarah Arnold, worked at the Micah Ministries Respite Recovery house, a place for homeless individuals who need extra time for recovery after being discharged from the hospital. The group prepared lunch for the residents, but gained much more than just a cooking lesson. “I think that projects such as spending time at the respite house are an important aspect of community service, because it helps break down barriers,” Arnold said. “The valuable part of this project was the company, friendship and sense of community that we got a taste of for two hours. Just having a meaningful conversation can make a huge impact, for the students and the people at the respite house.”

UMW Student Coordinates Historic Community Event

A University of Mary Washington student has taken her historic preservation studies far beyond the classroom with a historic Route 1 tour that kicked off Saturday, Sept. 7 at Riverfront Park in Fredericksburg.

Emily Taggart Frickner coordinated the Vintage Route 1 Tour on Saturday, September 7

Emily Taggart Schricker coordinated the Vintage Route 1 Tour on Saturday, September 7

“You have to start with a community that wants to preserve their history,” said Emily Taggart Schricker, a volunteer at the Historic Fredericksburg Foundation, who has been an integral part of the planning process for The Route 1 Tour and Fredericksburg Community Day. Last year’s tour brought more than 1,000 participants, and even more were expected this year.

“There will be something for everybody who might want to come downtown,” said Taggart Schricker, a historic preservation major. The Route 1 Tour events included a classic car display, vintage fashion show, live music, children’s activities and food tastings. “They will definitely learn some hidden gems about the things they drive past every day.”

A majority of the events were free, with trolley and walking tour tickets available for purchase online and at the event on Saturday.

UMW student volunteers helped out at many of Saturday’s events. UMW faculty members also were involved, including Assistant Professor of Historic Preservation Michael Spencer and Adjunct Professor of Historic Preservation Kerri Barile. Three out of four event tour guides were Mary Washington graduates, Taggart Schricker said.

The idea for the event, now in its second year, started in October 2011 when Taggart Schricker started volunteering on HFFI’s event committee.

“I suggested doing a tour of Fredericksburg’s 20th-century buildings,” she said.

Her event became a focus on historic Route 1 after a suggestion from HFFI Executive Director Sean Maroney.

“Fredericksburg is a town rich in history, but the 20th century hasn’t always gotten a lot of focus,” said Maroney, citing the large emphasis that is often put on Fredericksburg’s Revolutionary War and Civil War past.

Many of Fredericksburg’s unique features came in the 20th century, he explained, when U.S. Route 1 went straight through Fredericksburg on Princess Anne Street and Lafayette Boulevard. Gas stations, hotels and lunch counters popped up to accommodate the travelers.

Taggart Schricker spent the summer working on the event, researching, organizing, finding sponsors, getting downtown stores involved and making phone calls.

“It’s a great way to revitalize downtown,” Maroney said. “It’s about raising and promoting awareness for the very rich history in Fredericksburg.”

More information can be found at http://www.vintageroute1.com/. Event proceeds will benefit the HFFI, which preserves, protects and restores the city of Fredericksburg and its history.
