Here's what's going on in town today

Good day on this cloudy Thursday.

The MSU Department of Theatre explores themes of postmodernist philosophy through movement in “The December Project,” a thought-provoking piece.

Created by Kellyn Uhl, instructor of musical theater and dance who choreographed MSU’s production of “Hair,” “The December Project” is a collaboratively created piece that incorporates elements of dance and theater to comment on ideas of postmodernism.

Read more about the project in City Pulse's article here.

Sunday’s performance will feature a pre-show performance at 1:15 p.m., and Thursday’s performance will feature a post-show discussion.

7:30 p.m. Thursday; 8 p.m. Friday-Saturday; 2 p.m. Sunday. $13/$11 seniors and faculty/$10 students. Studio 60 Theatre, 542 Auditorium Road, East Lansing. (517) 353-1982,
