Faculty and staff: get 2 free tickets to Arthur Miller’s A View from the Bridge

Act 1 DeSales University Theatre invites all DSU faculty and staff to receive two complimentary tickets to the opening of our Spring Season, Arthur Miller’s A View from the Bridge.

“A theatrical lightning bolt that sizzles and startles at the same time.” –The New Yorker

A fiercely compelling drama about love, belonging, and betrayal. Eddie Carbone, an Italian American longshoreman, becomes obsessed with his 17 year-old niece Catherine. When she falls in love with another man, Eddie’s jealousy erupts in a rage that consumes him, his family, and his world. A View from the Bridge is a lesser-known Miller masterwork in his long line of moving tragedies which examine human flaws with dramatic consequence.

Complementary tickets are available for the following performances:

  • Wednesday, February 22 – 8:00 p.m.
  • Thursday, February 23  – 8:00 p.m.

Reservations must be made in advance by calling the Labuda Box Office at Ext. 1276. Not valid for previous purchases.

2011 United Way Campaign Summary

When our United Way Campaign began Fr. O’Connor wrote, “DeSales University continues to receive many blessings.  Almighty God and the Salesian saints shower us with kindness and graces as we seek to serve the many people that are sent to us by the divine.  Unfortunately, many of our sisters and brothers are not as fortunate as we are.  These are very difficult economic and political times for many in our nation and the world.  Each year we are invited to offer assistance to those in need.  Our common effort is called the United Way.”

You responded positively and generously to Father’s request. We achieved a 50% participation rate and a total of $16,576. The United Way of the Greater Lehigh Valley thanks you for your support to this year’s campaign and as do the people in the Lehigh Valley who will benefit from your generosity.
