Happening This Week in Muncie: What to Do

Looking for something to do during a study break? Go stretch your legs and find some fun!

Here's what's happening this week around Ball State and Muncie:

Anna in the Tropics

April 22 and 23 at 2:30 p.m.
Winner of the 2003 Pulitzer Prize for drama, Anna in the Tropics is set in 1929 Ybor City, a section of Tampa and the center of the cigar industry. Cigar factory owners continue the tradition brought from Cuba of hiring lectors to educate and entertain while the workers hand-roll cigars. Everyone is excited when a new lector is hired, but when he starts to read the Russian classic Anna Karenina, he unknowingly becomes a catalyst for the listeners, and their lives and relationships begin to spin out of control.

Concrete Clouds

April 18 - April 23
Cave Studio Theatre at Ball State University, W. Riverside Ave. behind Emens

Concrete Clouds is the student written and developed piece selected for this year's New Play Project. The play features the work of Ball State students and focuses on two adolescent girls who see the same therapist. Concrete Clouds explores how lives can change for the better with a stroke of a paintbrush, the scribble of a pen, or perhaps, just having someone there to listen. Find out more »

The Wailin’ Jennys

April 20 from 7:30 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.

The Wailin’ Jennys are Nicky Mehta, Ruth Moody and Heather Masse—three distinct voices that together make an achingly perfect vocal sound.
