In the Bright Existence (1976 / 2nd Production): Back Cover / Overview853 viewsImage provided by Sears Eldredge. Sears writes:

"This production was an original adaptation of the Quiche Maya Book of Counsel as translated by Munro S. Edmundson of Tulane University and the Mesoamerican Institute into a performance text. His translation, used with his permission, used his special recording of the Quiche Maya words / phrases I wanted to use as part of the performance text.

Traditional and original music was performed by the students. Costumes and masks were based on archeological and traditional sources reflecting various ancient Mesoamerican cultures.

The second production of this piece performed two years later was JMC’s contribution to the University’s Bi-centennial Celebration highlighting the fact that there were other peoples with cultures severely damaged by the arrival of Europeans who should not be forgotten about.

Besides rehearsing the show, they all had to work building set pieces, props, costumes, puppets, masks to be used in the show. Tom Tamandl (who taught Spanish) and the poet, Carolyn Forche (who taught in the English program at JMC at the time), were enthusiastic supporters and performers in the show. Traditional and original music was performed by the students. Costumes and masks were based on archeological and traditional sources reflecting various ancient Mesoamerican cultures.

Chautauqua: Programme775 viewsImage provided by Sears Eldredge. Sears writes:

"Chautauqua: Rediscovering the American Land — tour show for the Kellogg Center for Continuing Education. This was a multi-media show created by former JMC Dean, Gordon Rohman, who asked if I would work with him on it. Student actors from JMC mixed with several faculty from different disciplines on campus to create this traveling Chautauqua show.

We toured to five (I think it was) cities in Michigan. The performers also included the MSU Symphonic Band who played music at various intervals and the beautiful composition, “Touch of the Earth,” at the conclusion."
