Heads or Tails? Wilcox Stage Company Performs Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead
By Melissa McKenzie

New and returning actors combine for the arduous task of tackling Tom Stoppard’s tragic comedy “Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead” in Wilcox Stage Company’s fall performance.

The play, which relies heavily on the exchange and interaction between its two central characters Rosencrantz and Guildenstern - minor characters in Shakespeare’s Hamlet - has proved to be both difficult and rewarding for the student actors.

“We have a lot of new freshmen and a lot of new upper classmen too and they’re doing really well,” says Assistant Director, Producer, Lighting and Set Designer, senior Marisa Whitmore. “I’m really proud of them because it was looking a little shaky at the beginning...

Veterans Honored at Santa Clara Ceremony

Veterans Honored at Santa Clara Ceremony

Evoking emotion, tears and memories, the 2014 Santa Clara Veterans Day ceremony honored those who have served. From those who stormed onto the beaches of Normandy during WWII, to those who endured through hot, windy Middle Eastern sandstorms, to those who treaded in waist-high, cold waters, and those currently fighting the war on terrorism, American veterans are rarely recognized for the sacrifices they make.

“I think we can do better than serving Veterans one day a year,” said Assembly member and Senator-elect Bob Wieckowski, who added that over 20 bills have been passed in California alone in the last year supporting veterans. “VA services are closed only one day a year - Veterans Day, why should we honor our Veterans just one day?”...

This Week's Letter

How fortunate we were here in Santa Clara. We chose an excellent group of local representatives to care for our legislative issues. Many were re-elected, having previously proven their honesty and worth and a few were new - but surely in the same category of decent people.

But as to the rest of the country, it’s clear the public was sick and tired of the continual bad news. Let’s review: gas prices are now below $3 so our dear oil companies’ profits will be way down, our Marines are essentially to be thrown out of work as they have been pulled out of Afghanistan, the stock market is going so high you can’t afford to buy a good stock anymore, etc, etc.

No wonder the people are sick and tired of Democratic leadership. Big changes ahead! Boy, things are now really going to be fixed!

Yeah, right! Just wait. It used to be said that “you get the government you paid for” but with the recent court decisions permitting unlimited and secret contributions, it is now “you get the government that attracted the most campaign funding.”
