This spring, Salisbury University’s annual President’s Club gathering spotlighted the arts. Some 80 members attended the reception in the University Gallery of Fulton Hall, where the Senior Art Exhibit was on display. After taking in the works by graduating students, SU President Janet Dudley-Eshbach welcomed the friends of the University before they settled into the Black Box Theatre next door for a fun introduction to British music hall-style theatre.
An enthusiastic cast of students performed the Tony Award-winning musical murder mystery Drood, based on the unfinished novel by Charles Dickens. Each night the audience decides “whodunit” by voting on who they think the murderer is, which determines the play’s ending. The SU production, directed by Dr. T. Paul Pfeiffer, with musical direction by Dr. William Folger, set design by John Raley and costume design by Leslie Yarmo, was a theatrical, musical and visual confection.
SU international students Yuying Wang and Ziyang Yu, who attend Xin Hua College in Guangzhou, China, in fashion-related studies, traveled to New York to pick out fabric for two of the women’s costumes, Princess Puffer and Rosa Bud, which they designed and constructed with charm and flair.
