Summer Stage bringing pirates, sword fighting and treasure to LCC next week

LCC Performing Arts will offer a free, family-friendly performance of “Treasure Island” at the Downtown Campus outdoor amphitheater next week. The performance is the first of the Summer Stage series.

The play sticks to the heart of Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic novel, capturing on stage all the drama and excitement of this beloved classic. When an old, drunken pirate takes up residence at a rowdy seaside tavern frequented by pirates, sea hags and thieves, the inn keeper’s young son gains the key to a chest that holds the map to buried treasure. He sets sail to recover the treasure and comes up against the band of pirates led by Long John Silver.

The show was adapted from the novel by Don Swartz, and will be directed by Dr. John Lennox.

Performances are Wednesday, June 20, through Sunday, June 24. All shows begin at 7 p.m.

Online orientation reading level requirement expands

The new requirement for students to access online orientation is a reading level 3, a change from the former reading level 5.

This expansion offers the opportunity for alternative learning for more students and distance learners. New students with a reading level 3 should automatically gain access to the online orientation in their D2L account (please allow two business days after placement levels are established.) If a student needs access or has any questions or concerns, they can contact the orientation team at lcc.edu/orientation/contact_us.

Please contact orientation@lcc.edu with any questions.
