"Crazy for You" Coming to Westminster College Celebrity Series

"Crazy for You," a musical by George and Ira Gershwin, will appear at Westminster College Wednesday, Oct. 20, at 8 p.m. in the newly-refurbished Orr Auditorium.

 "This large-scale production is crammed with popular standards like, 'I've Got Rhythm,' 'Embraceable You,' 'They Can't Take That Away From Me,' and 'Someone to Watch Over Me,'" said Gene DeCaprio, director of the Celebrity Series.  "This is the Broadway musical at its best."

 This Tony Award winning classic is a story of a stage-struck playboy starting a theater in a mining town.  It features a host of hilarious mistaken identities, exciting dance numbers, great sets, and time-period costumes.

 Westminster's Orr Auditorium has been recently remodeled to include air conditioning, stage elevator, new carpeting, and re-upholstered seats, along with stage lighting and shell improvements.

A limited amount of seating is still available.  For tickets, contact Judy Behm, acting box office assistant of the Westminster College Celebrity Series at (724) 946-7354 or e-mail

Crazy for You

Westminster Public Relations Professor Presents Paper

Delores Natale, a lecturer of public relations at Westminster College, recently presented "From Typist to Tyrant: Film's Portrayal of Women in Journalism" at the 17th annual Far West Popular Culture Conference in Las Vegas.

 "I used excerpts from four different films produced between 1940 and 1994 to illustrate both stereotypical and balanced portrayals of women in journalism, Natale said.  "Implicit in the research is the influence the writers and actors had on either contributing to or debunking stereotypes."

 Natale, who has been with Westminster College since 2001, earned her undergraduate degree from Westminster College.

Contact Natale at (724) 946-7348 or e-mail for more information.
