  8:00PM 10:30PM Les Liaisons Dangereuses   “Les Liaisons Dangereuses,” the play adaptation based on the original 18th century text by Choderlos de Laclos, and adapted for the stage by Christopher Hampton, will receive a new staging by LLCC Theatre in May. Performance dates are May 3, 4, 10 and 11 at 8 p.m. in the lower level of Sangamon Hall South on the Lincoln Land Community College campus in Springfield. The production contains mature themes and presentations of violence and is not recommended for persons under the age of 17. Tickets, at $12 for adults and $10 for college students and seniors, go on sale April 17 at the LLCC Ticket Office in Menard Hall, which is open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays, or may be reached by calling 217-786-2762. Seating is limited and advance tickets are recommended. This postmodern treatment of the play (that has seen numerous stagings and film adaptations) will address the issues of power and oppression in the modern age. Calling on strong images of control reaching from personal to political, it deals keenly with a world in which political power breeds excess. Echoes of these excesses resonate in this production from 18th century revolutions to present-day political scandals. LLCC’s theatre program values the expression of arts in all forms and the cultivation of arts and arts appreciation. The program embraces diverse and divergent world views while championing humanity in its complexity: its weaknesses and strengths, its failings and its successes. Consistent with this values statement, there will be a post-show discussion led by LLCC faculty immediately following each performance to provide an open forum for audience members to reflect on the issues at hand. More information on LLCC Theatre is available at www.llcc.edu/theatre.
 
  8:00AM 5:00PM High Tunnel Build Workshop   Lincoln Land Community College’s Green Center is holding a high tunnel build workshop Thursday, May 9 and Friday, May 10 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The free two-day workshop is being held in the community garden behind the Workforce Careers Center on the LLCC-Springfield campus, 5250 Shepherd Road. Participants in the workshop will assist in erecting a 30-foot x 48-foot movable high tunnel (greenhouse) on V-track, in addition to learning about season extension growing practices. The workshop is being led by Four Season Tools. The nationally recognized company builds year-round organic vegetable farms, specializing in constructing high tunnels and educating individuals about season extension for economic viability of small-scale sustainable farms. Farmers, representatives from schools and universities, community garden leaders, and other individuals wanting to learn about growing food year-round are invited to learn more about high tunnels. High tunnel greenhouses can increase crop profits by improving yields and extending the growing season. Additionally, high tunnel greenhouses can provide more crop protection from weather, diseases and pests than field grown crops. Partial day participation is welcome. For more information or to register, contact Marnie Record at 786-4993.
