Trexler Library Announces New OCLC WorldCat Discovery Search System

The Trexler Library staff is pleased to announce that we have successfully transitioned to OCLC WorldCat, our new discovery search system and management platform. The functionality is very similar to our older system, but it also includes easy searching of the OCLC’s large database of library holdings around the world.

Our new search box now appears on the library homepage at http://desales.edu/library. Please give the system a test run and let us know what you think. Email Debbie Malone at Debbie.malone@desales.edu.

Evita’s Dee Roscioli Returns to Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival for One-Night-Only Concert

Broadway actress Dee Roscioli returns to Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival for one night only in concert on July 31 at the Labuda Center for the Performing Arts on the campus of DeSales University.

“It’s a fun cabaret with some of my favorite songs, pop hits, and Broadway,” says Roscioli. She returns to PSF following her recent critically acclaimed performance as Eva Perón in the Festival’s lauded and sold-out production of Evita: “Roscioli’s powerful vocals and charisma light up the stage,” says Daniel Friedman in his review for The Morning Call. “There is not a moment she’s onstage that your eyes leave her.”

Roscioli, an Easton native and DeSales University theatre graduate, is best known for her long run as Elphaba on Broadway, and in the Chicago, San Francisco, and national touring productions of the hit musical Wicked. She has the distinction of playing the role of Elphaba in more performances in North America than any other actress. [Read more…]

Shakespeare for Kids Opens at Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival

Complete with sock puppets, sing-a-longs, and the Shakespeare Hokey-Pokey, Shakespeare For Kids written by Erin Sheffield opens at Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival July 26 and runs through August 5 on the Main Stage of the Labuda Center for the Performing Arts on the campus of DeSales University.

Ideal for children ages 4 to 10, Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival’s production plays at 10AM Tuesday through Saturday through August 5.

“Shakespeare for Kids is a perfect piece of silliness peppered with poetry. I have been writing the series for nine years and I am continually amazed how beautifully Shakespeare’s text comes out of the mouths of sock puppets,” says Sheffield. “The play is 60 minutes of fun with Team Shakespeare and more than half of the time the words are all Shakespeare’s.” [Read more…]
