Red Noses

UVa-Wise Calendar - Fri, 04/07/2017 - 8:00pm

This production is performed by the UVa-Wise Theater Department.  It is a cultural activity credit event.

$0 with CAVs Card/$5 for public

Red Noses is a black comedy about the black death, a vibrant and slapstick hymn to the power of laughter and the human spirit.

There’s no cure for the plague, and Auxerre in France, 1348, is populated by the dying. Marcel Flote, who is afflicted by convulsions, tries to join a band of self-flagellating pilgrims and ends up in a slapstick routine. He has an epiphany: he must serve God by spreading laughter. Joined by Sonnerie, who communicates by shaking limbs covered in tiny bells, he forms a pious brotherhood of joy, the Red Noses of Auxerre, to give cheer to a pestilent and doomed world. His clowning is tentatively approved by the Archbishop Monsolet, but Pope Clement VI begins to be troubled by Flote’s compassion and joviality.

Written in 1978, Red Noses was not performed until 1985, when it was premiered by the Royal Shakespeare Company at the Barbican Theatre, London.

Smith is honorary student speaker for Commencement 2017

UVa-Wise News - Fri, 04/07/2017 - 9:17am

Gabrielle Smith, a math major, has been selected as honorary student speaker for Commencement 2017 at The University of Virginia’s College at Wise.

The 21-year-old Manassas, Virginia resident arrived at UVa-Wise four years ago and quickly earned a reputation across campus for her strong work ethic in the classroom and in the undergraduate research program. Smith, along with her faculty mentor James Vance, spent two years driving a specific route through Southwest Virginia surveying wildlife collisions with vehicles. The road kill study uses a logistic regression analysis to identify hot spots for wildlife collisions so mediation measures may be taken if viable. Ironically, as a youngster, Smith, when on long trips with her mother, would pass the time by pointing out the variety of road kill they would encounter on roadways.

A born teacher, Smith tutors math and Spanish on campus, worked with the Summer Bridge Program, and, as a licensed educator, teaches math at Union High School as a long-term substitute.

Smith, who graduated from Stonewall Jackson High, plays piano, sings, and has participated in several theater productions on campus. A self- proclaimed outdoor enthusiast, Smith has enjoyed her time living in the mountains of Southwest Virginia.

She enjoys life on a small campus because of the close ties that are formed with students, faculty and staff. Smith, a member of the Sigma Zeta Honor Society, says she will always treasure the times that she and her fellow math majors would sit in the atrium in the second floor of Darden Hall and discuss all aspects of mathematics.

“It’s a family,” she said. “We became a close-knit family, just sitting with like-minded people talking about math.”

Smith, who wants to teach mathematics while continuing research, has applied to begin a Ph.D. program in genetics, bioinformatics and computational biology at Virginia Tech.

Chick-fil-A opening at UVa-Wise this fall

UVa-Wise News - Wed, 04/05/2017 - 2:44pm

The University of Virginia’s College at Wise announced Wednesday that opening a Chick-fil-A Express is the first improvement of a $500,000 investment that Chartwells, the College’s dining company, is making toward food service on campus.

Chartwells will open the Chick-fil-A at no cost to UVa-Wise. The nation’s most popular fast food restaurant would be located in the Slemp Student Center in the space occupied by Mondo’s Subs and Coyote Jack’s. Chartwells is looking at reopening Mondo’s subs in another location on campus.

Joe Kiser, director of college services, said the planned improvements are an example of the partnership between the College and Chartwells, its contracted dining services provider.

“The Chick-fil-A will be, of course, open to the public,” Kiser said. “All our dining facilities are open to the public, and we encourage those from outside campus to use the services Chartwells provides.”

Chartwells operates the Smith Dining Commons, Papa John’s, and Books and Brew, a coffee shop that serves authorized Starbucks products. Mondo’s Subs and Coyote Jack’s are also operated by Chartwells.

Kiser said plans call for construction of the Chick-fil-A to take place at the end of the spring semester so the restaurant could open when the fall semester begins. The Chick-fil-A Express would offer the core menu of the bigger restaurants as well as a Grab and Go option.

Brett Lawson, head of the UVa-Wise Chartwells operations, said the eatery would be open during weekdays and would be open on Saturday. Chick-fil-A would not be open on Sunday, same as other Chick-fil-A’s across the nation.

Lawson said Chartwells would hire more local employees in order to keep up with the increased volume that would come with operating additional dining options. The employees that would work at Chick-fil-A Express would undergo comprehensive training in Atlanta. The training would be conducted under the strict guidance of the Chick-fil-A corporate office in order to ensure quality standards.

“We will be living by their high standards,” Lawson said. “It’s a good move for everybody involved.”
