Saturday, Jan. 31 at 2 p.m. & 7:30 p.m.
Pridemore Playhouse, Porterfield Hall

Mementos fade but memories live on. "Keep This for Me" is a glimpse of an era gone by but not ever to be forgotten, weaving together the personal stories of those who lived and loved through a globe-altering event…the soldier, the factory worker, the pinup girl…the American. The stories are brought to life through dance, theatre, a live big band, and video projections. This is a College of Visual and Performing Arts production that is sponsored in part by a Scholar Citizen Initiative Project Grant.
