Elvira–The Immigration Play & Immigration Storytelling Workshop

Written by Jessica Carmona, and inspired by the life story of Elvira Arellano, this play offers up an imaginary encounter between a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Officer and Elvira on the day of her arrest in August 2007. As an interrogation unfolds, Elvira recounts her journey, from being the daughter of a farmer in Mexico to becoming Time Magazine’s Person of the Year.

This play will be followed by a workshop that will guide students and families in recording their own immigration stories.

Virtual Blue Hawk Records Release Show for “Sweet 16”

This semester, Blue Hawk Records will be hosting their first ever virtual release show on the Blue Hawk Records Instagram page for their new album Sweet 16 on May 6 at 8pm. 

Over the past few weeks, student life at Monmouth University, and everywhere, has changed dramatically, due to COVID – 19. Like all other schools and universities across the country, Monmouth has moved to online instruction for the remainder of the spring semester. However, despite the chaotic and tumultuous situation students found themselves, Blue Hawk Records carried on with its plans to release its 16th studio album. They innovated and found a way to remotely produce, promote and release the spring 2020 compilation EP, “Sweet 16”. A first for the student-run record label, as well as most major record labels.

Artists on “Sweet 16” include Monmouth students, Shadiyah, featuring Gabriel Garza, Nicole Totland, Bruce Davis, featuring Janae, Mikey Sanchez, Drew Fournier, and Monmouth alumni, Anya Schildge Angeloni ‘12M, along with an ensemble of accompanying student musicians and producers.

Sweet 16 will be available for streaming on all digital platforms on May 8.

My Way: A Musical Tribute to Frank Sinatra presented by Shadow Lawn Stage

A swinging tribute to Ol’ Blue Eyes, My Way: A Musical Tribute to Frank Sinatra relives Sinatra’s legendary career as four actors take you on a musical revue spanning the breadth of his career from his early beginnings as a crooner in New York, to the bright lights of Las Vegas with the Rat Pack, to his final performances. Conceived by David Grapes and Todd Olson, My Way invites its audience to take a trip down memory lane while reliving Sinatra’s remarkable five-decade career the 1950s to the1990s. From a songbook of over 1300 tunes, My Way chooses fifty-four of Sinatra’s songs that include “Fly Me to the Moon,” “Chicago,” “New York, New York,” and “That’s Life.” It’s a celebration just as Ol’ Blue Eyes would have wanted it – a few stories, a few drinks, and plenty of knockout tunes.
