Butler’s Dance Department performs The Nutcracker annually at Clowes Memorial Hall, which is right next to the fine arts college in Lilly Hall on Butler’s campus.
Last Friday was Nutcracker poster hanging day. Members of Sigma Rho Delta (the dance service fraternity) disperse all around the town to hang Nutcracker posters. I’ve actually only ever been assigned to the campus crew, which means we just hang posters in Butler’s bookstore, Irwin Library, Jordan Hall, and so on.
However, before we compete for best spots on the bulletin boards (the prime real estate), we eat pizza together. This has sort of evolved into a tradition of the older members of Sigma Rho telling stories about the department to the new students. I remember laughing and laughing as a freshman, and now I got to share memorable departmental moments with the pledges who helped out with poster hanging. It’s a fun tradition.
My friend Anna helped during poster hanging as well. And when I say “helped,” I actually mean “took pictures of everything.” With photography skills like hers, the urge seems perfectly natural. She was kind enough to let me use her pictures, so I shall let the rest of post speak for itself.
