TWU TO HOST HUMAN RESOURCES GAMES

The TWU Society for Human Resources Management student chapter will host the 2004 Southwest Central Region HR Games, April 23-24. Teams from the 10-state region — Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Kansas, Louisiana, Missouri, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas and Utah — will compete.

The HR Games take on the form of a Jeopardy style match. Each three-person team has 15 seconds to give a correct answer and the match concludes when a 30-minute time period runs out or the game board is cleared of questions. HR game competitions are used to inspire and motivate students to prepare for professional human resources certification testing.

The games will be from 6:30-8:30 p.m. on Friday, April 23. Competition begins at 9 a.m. on Saturday, April 24, and the final championship round is scheduled for 1:15-2:15 p.m. with an awards ceremony following. Matches will take place in various rooms of the ASB. The public is welcome to attend the competition.

DRAMA, FORT WORTH MODERN PRESENT DRAMA IN THE DAYTIME

TWU and the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth present “Drama In The Daytime” on Saturday, May 1 at 2 p.m. in the Modern Art Museum Auditorium. Events include a performance of the one-act play Cowboy Mouth, by Sam Shepard, and staged readings of four original one-act plays.

Cowboy Mouth spends a day in the life of Slim and Cavale, a man and woman caught up in a lurid affair held together by the sinewy strings of sex, drugs and rock and roll. Touted as one of Sam Shepard's most autobiographical works, Cowboy Mouth explores the spontaneous nature of the physical mind in one act.

Following Cowboy Mouth, TWU presents four shorter one-acts, each an original and cutting-edge work. Dream House, by Ruth Engel, a pop-culture tragedy about the ending of an era, 9 Minute Ride by Lorenzo Hernandez dealing with issues of terrorism in an innovative way, Mama, by Veronica Parrish-McGruder, in which a parent learns from a child the value of education, and Public Domain, by Dennis Sloan, which examines the often fatal union of art and celebrity. The original pieces are produced by Michael Scudday, and TWU playwriting instructor Natalie Gaupp will lead a question and answer discussion following the readings.

The two-hour program is free to the public.
