8:30 a.m. - Coffee

9 a.m. – "Adapting History for Stage and Screen," by Mark Mannette. A look at the history of the history play and a critique of the playwrights’ responsibility to be historically accurate. But what is a history play you might ask? A play in this genre is based on a historical narrative, often set in the medieval or early modern past. So, should we dramatize history? Should we alter the facts to enhance the theater goer’s experience? Mannette is the director of theatre at Newman University and currently serves as president of the board for Music Theatre for Young People.

10 a.m. - Amber Myers from Flint Hills Discovery Center, will present “Flint Hills: The Nature of It.” This presentation will cover how the Flint Hills geology has created very unique setting for prairie wildlife and plants. Several Flint Hills and Tallgrass Prairie birds, animals, plants, and grasses will be highlighted along with where you can go see the most representative prairies within the Flint Hills.
