This past Friday, March 26 and Saturday, March 27 at 7PM, the Periwig Club will perform Augusta and Noble by Carlos Murillo, the third play reading of the Jean S. Stephens Play Reading Series. It will take place over Zoom with a runtime of 90 minutes. As a collaboration between Periwig and the Latinos Unidos club, Augusta and Noble tells the story of Gabi, a young girl, and her life within a Latinx community in Chicago. The play follows Gabi as she adjusts to attending a preparatory high school while simultaneously living in a fantastical realm that teaches her about her family's story as Mexican immigrants. Throughout the play, Gabi explores her understanding of what it means to be an American with her Mexican heritage.
"What makes Lawrenceville unique in comparison to other boarding schools?” is a question many prospective students ask when they visit campus, a question to which their tour guides most likely will respond, “Well, of course, Lawrenceville’s House system,” before they explain how each Circle and Crescent House is like a family with its own set of traditions and values.
Over the last few weeks, Muse, Lawrenceville's Visual Arts Council, has been organizing and executing its annual Winter Art Auction. The auction is an interactive method of showcasing student artwork while raising funds for visual arts-related charities. This year's auction revenue will be donated to Sing for Hope, an organization founded by Lawrenceville Alumni Monica Yunus '95 that combines visual art and music with service.
