10:50 am
Student Center Theater

Dr. Francesco Ancona, professor of English at Sussex County Community College, will explore how to decipher the meanings behind your dreams. The presentation is also open to the public at no charge.

“The presentation explains what Freud termed the ‘language’ of dreams to enable attendees to interpret their own dreams, as no one can do so better than the dreamers themselves – especially with a cup of coffee, glass of wine, and a good friend,” said Dr. Ancona.

The presentation will also include the process of keeping a dream diary and will include plenty of time for answering questions.

SCCC Presents Agatha Christie’s “A Murder Is Announced”

Friday, November 20 at 7:30 pm;
Saturday, November 21 at 7:30 pm;
Sunday, November 22 at 3 pm;
Performing Arts Center

Sussex County Community College will present A Murder is Announced, adapted by Leslie Darbon from a story by Agatha Christie.

The play opens with an announcement in the local paper that states the time and place of when a murder is to occur in Miss Blacklock’s Victorian house. The victim is not one of the house’s several occupants, but an unexpected and unknown visitor. What follows is a classic Christie puzzle of mixed motives, concealed identities, and a determined Inspector grimly following the twists and turns.

A Murder is Announced is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.

Following the Sunday 11/22 performance there will be a reception in the Lobby for the Exhibit of the works by Artist Claudia Arbizu sponsored by the Sussex County Arts & Heritage Council

Hair Metal Time Machine is the brain child of lead singer Dave E. Lister, a former member of the band Pretty Boy Floyd who had such hits on MTV as “Rock and Roll (Is Gonna Set the Night on Fire)” and “I Wanna Be With You.” Together with Zeke E. Lee, (lead guitar, vocals), Kriss Kaboom (bass, vocals), Tony Baptist (drums, vocals), and Amanda Tucci (backing vocals), they make up the tribute band which is the dirty love letter to the era when rock was one big party – the 1980’s.

The band has one mission and one mission only – and that is to bring you back to the glory days of 80’s rock. From the colorful glam of bands such as Poison and Van Halen, the legendary anthems of Bon Jovi and Motley Crue, the grinding rock of Ratt and Skid Row, the girl power of Lita Ford and Joan Jett, and even the raw metal of Judas Priest and Ozzy Osbourne, Hair Metal Time Machine wants you to remember the days you used to bang your head to the music on the radio and live out your fantasies through MTV music videos.

Whether you lived the 80’s, (just barely survived the 80’s), or even if you weren’t yet born in the 80’s, we guarantee you will have nothing but a good time when you spend your night singing along with us with the songs you know and love. So come on feel the noise and get ready to rock – with Hair Metal Time Machine!
