AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY
Williamstown, 7:30 p.m.
Must the Promised Land necessarily become cursed and haunted? It is possible to stop moral downfall and pursue happiness instead? In his eye-opening play, Pulitzer Prize winner Tracy Letts reveals the secrets of an American family defeated by its mistakes and avalanching toward its final disintegration. Family members gather to discover how far apart they’ve grown and how dysfunctional their lives have become. Directed by Professor Sangare, this theatrical production will examine contemporary relationships and investigate personal and social values.

SANKOFA STEP TEAM
Williamstown, 8 p.m.
Sankofa is Williams College’s step team founded by two female students in 1996. The now co-ed team performs stepping, a percussive dance form created by black fraternities in the mid-1900s that is influenced by military drill, South African gumboot, West African dance, and hip-hop. The word Sankofa comes from the Akan language of Ghana; in English it means “stepping forward while looking back.” Sankofa uses this concept to reach back and stay true to its roots in order to step forward, reflecting the organization’s mentality. The highly dynamic team has been known to incorporate everything from pop music and spoken word to breakdance and gymnastics in its choreography in order to create loud, high energy, and incredibly astounding performances. Price is $3.   Visit the Williams College '62 Center Box Office from Tues-Sat, 1-5 PM or call (413) 597-2425.
