SPARTANBURG, SC—On a simple stage with simple sets, props and costumes, 17 Wofford students have explored the world of environments.

They will share their discoveries with the public Wednesday through Friday, Feb. 6-8, as they present “Environments: Oh, The Places You’ll Go,” the revue-style program that combines music, poetry and prose in a dramatic look at the places people live or would love to live, and some they would love to loathe. The performances will be at 8 p.m. in the Tony White Theatre in the Campus Life Building. Cost is $6 general admission and $3 for non-Wofford students. For reservations, call 597-4080. (Portions of the performance may not be suitable for children.)

Combining their talents and interests, students have developed a well-rounded, thought-provoking program. Heavy concepts from works such as “Prince of Tides” and “Silent Spring” are mixed with comic relief pieces like “Headless Town” and “Faculty Lounge.”

The revue closes with a spoken excerpt of Allan Jackson’s musical hit, “Where Were You (When the World Stopped Turning) which moves into a look at “In My Life,” adapted from the popular Beatles song.
