Get Your Be Loud On is a talent showcase at the Cat’s Cradle on March 14th, 2015. The goal of this event is to give groups and individuals a chance to show off their talents and express their teenage life while raising awareness for the Be Loud! Sophie Foundation. If you are interested or have any questions please contact beloudsophieateast@gmail.com. To sign up you can go to this link. 

The Be Loud Sophie Foundation’s mission is to support adolescent and young adult cancer patients and their families at UNC hospitals by providing creative ways to target personal interests in order to help them maintain their independence and identity. Sophie Steiner, the inspiration for the foundation, was forever finding ways to express her passion and love for life through dance and poetry. When she was in the hospital she noticed that not all teenagers had the opportunity to express themselves and enjoy the experiences of being an adolescent and she wanted to address this issue.
You are invited to showcase your talents at Get Your Be Loud On, whether this includes music, performance, visual arts, or spoken word. The overall theme of this showcase is a reminder of what it is like to be a teenager, so we are looking for people who use their talent to express their experiences and emotions of being an adolescent. 

Order your tickets in advance for "The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940". Use this link to order your tickets today and see the performance at 7:30 in the East auditorium on March 5, 6 or 7. This murder mystery farce is sure to thrill and excite audiences--it's a mash-up of "Clue" meets "White Christmas" meets "Scooby Doo."

Blood Drive is coming: Please consider donating blood on March 6.  Click here to sign up. Also be sure to check age and health requirements from the American Red Cross before you sign up.
