More Shades of White

Arts/Entertainment

Nancy Hills, a professor in Utah State University’s Theatre Arts Department and the Caine College of the Arts, has designed costumes for “The Playboy of the Western World” and, most recently, “Blithe Spirit,” both for Artist Repertory Theatre in Portland, Ore. She’s travelled to Great Britain where, among numerous activities, she presented a public lecture at the Society of Antiquaries in London. The title of the presentation was “Historical Dress: a Project Inspired by Janet Arnold” and it featured recreations of gowns from patterns taken from Hills’ Janet Arnold research, and modeled by 11 USU interior design students. The gowns were constructed by USU Theatre Arts graduate students. Janet Arnold (1932-1998), the subject of Hills’ research, was a British clothing historian, costume designer, teacher, conservator and author.

The gowns have become well-traveled. They appeared in the exhibit “Symphony in White” from June 2014 through Christmas at Berrington Hall near Leominster in Herefordshire — this time appearing on dress forms. And now they are a part of a new exhibit, “Shades of White: The Changing Shape of Women,” that will be shown Feb. 14 through April 25 at the Hereford Museum and Gallery in Hereford. Hills has added nine pieces to the show that features reinterpretations of gowns from 1750 to 1950.

Light Up the Sky

Arts/Entertainment

This satire revolves around a group of New York theater-folk opening a new show in Boston. As the opening night mood swings from optimistic camaraderie to terror of failure and angry recriminations, the friends start to turn against each other. It turns out however, that in spite of the curious reception of the opening night audience, the reviews are favorable and the tables turn once again, but not before the playwright has decided that he is through with the theater.
Written by Moss Hart

Viewer discretion is advised: Some adult language.
