  • February 25, 2016 Twelfth Night by William Peace Theatre William Peace Theatre Company presents Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night" directed by Dr. Wade Newhouse, Feb. 25-28, 2016. TICKETS: $15 Adult, $10 Faculty/Staff/Alumni, $5 Student REGISTER HERE William Peace Theatre presents William Shakespeare’s timeless comedy February 25 - 28 in Leggett Theatre on the campus of William Peace University.  Drawing inspiration from the romantic comedies of influential filmmaker John Hughes, the show’s design captures the exuberant teen romance of the 1980’s. Twins Viola and Sebastian have been separated from each other in a shipwreck along the coast of Illyria.  Disguising herself as a boy named Cesario, she enters the employ of Duke Orsino, who pines after the Lady Olivia.  As Orsino sends her to deliver messages of love to Olivia, she falls for him and Olivia falls for her.  Meanwhile, Olivia’s uncle, Sir Toby Belch, and a dimwitted knight named Sir Andrew Aguecheek, accompanied by various servants and clowns cause drunken mayhem and prank Olivia’s steward, Malvolio, into believing she is in love with him. Dr. Wade Newhouse directs this production.  At William Peace University he currently serves as the Interim Program Coordinator for Theatre and Musical Theatre, and teaches such courses as Composition, Children’s Literature, Southern Literature, Storytelling for Simulation, Critical Approaches to Film, and American Hauntings.  He has published articles and book chapters on a wide variety of authors, including Sir Walter Scott, Ambrose Bierce, William Faulkner, and Neil Gaiman.  He is the Assistant Director of Raleigh’s Village Idiots and has performed with that improvisational comedy troupe for over ten years.  As an actor, Dr. Newhouse has often appeared on the Peace stage, playing such roles as Nick Bottom in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Herr Schultz in Cabaret, the Narrator/Mysterious Man in Into the Woods, and the Chairman in The Mystery of Edwin Drood.  Dr. Newhouse has also performed with Bare Theatre, hiSTORYstage, and Forest Moon Theater. view Event

Peace Volleyball Earns First Win

By on September 16, 2010 7:22 pm

Danville, Va. – The Peace Pacers volleyball squad earned their first win tonight defeating USA South foe Averett University 3-1 on the road. First-year outside hitter Taylor Johnson earned 13 kills (.400) to lead PC to victory. This marks the first win versus the Cougars since before joining the league in 2003.

 

The opponents traded the first 15 points of the match before Johnson put down a kill to ignite a 5-0 Peace run, including two service aces from Johnson and a kill from sophomore middle Lexi Parker. Three more Pacer kills and one of Johnson’s three blocks gave PC the eventual 1-0 match lead on a 25-18 score.

 

AU battled to take the clear 25-13 win in set two.

 

First-year local Lauren Naugle, who led Peace with 15 digs and four service aces, served Peace to an early 6-1 lead in set three. Averett tied Peace at 10-10 on a 5-0 run. PC’s first-year libero Melissa Cubillos put her team back on top 19-17 serving three straight, including one of her two aces. A block from Parker helped setter Olivia Griffin serve for the 25-22 win.

 

Griffin maintained the serve into the final set and with the help of four Pacer kills, gave her team an early five-point advantage that would carry to a 25-17 finish.

 

Parker and veteran outside Amber Lowe notched seven kills apiece for the visitors. Cubillos tallied 12 digs and Griffin topped all with 32 assists on the night.

 

Averett’s Hillary Metheny led all with 14 kills and Aaron Paige notched a match-high 24 digs.

 

Peace hosts Salem College tomorrow night in the home opener. First serve is slated for 7:00 pm in the Hermann Center.
