    Student Musical Theater presents "Hair" at Carleton

    The Student Musical Theater (SMT) is an organization dedicated to producing quality, student-run musicals for the Carleton community. This term's production of the well-known musical, Hair, will take place in the Weitz Theater, which is an exciting new step for the members of SMT, according to the musical's co-director, Ellie Durling (2017). Past SMT productions have consistently been held in the Little Nourse Theater, but Durling believes that the spacial freedom found in the larger Weitz Theater will help turn the production into a full theatrical experience for both the audience and the actors. Hair is scheduled to premiere at the Weitz Center for Creativity during 9th week of winter term.

    Collaborative course brings together St. Olaf and Carleton students

    At first glance, the class looks like any other taught at Carleton College. The room features desks, a blackboard, and a projector. The students tote backpacks and laptops, take notes, and sip their coffee while listening to a professor in glasses and a blazer lecturing at the front of the room. But there is one thing about them that makes this course unique: half of the students are from St. Olaf College.
