Upcoming Event

Lindenwood University Theatre presents Evangeline Drowning by Kurt Heinlein. What would you do if your hometown and its people were under immediate threat? What if you lost your home, your land, your family belongings, and no one seemed to care, much less lend a hand? What if the youth in your community fled without option as your family and culture decayed in their wake? What would you do? The youth of South Louisiana are forced to ask themselves these difficult questions every day, growing up in a land where threat, loss, and survival often take precedence over the traditional spoils of youth. Evangeline Drowning is a riveting drama that investigates the socio-environmental crisis in Southern Louisiana through the lens of those it impacts the most… the voices of its future. Broadcasting via and LUTV.
