February 10, 2013: The Civil War as a Musical/The Cost of Higher Education Gets Higher and Higher

Today, the Civil War… children’s theater style. Theatreworks USA is coming to Spaulding Auditorium at Dartmouth’s Hopkins Center on Sunday, February 10th, at 3pm. (Tickets are available at the Hopkins Center website.) This traveling children’s theater company will present a performance that explores the personal stories of those caught up in the American Civil War. We bring you a preview of the show — a conversation with Arthur Perlman, The Civil War’s book writer and lyricist.

And with college so expensive these days, why not skip it altogether and get a job instead? Don Vickers, President and CEO of Vermont Student Assistance Corporation, is a strong believer in higher education. We ask him — is college really necessary? And how do we avoid mountains of student debt?
