The Actors from the London Stage will
be in town again this fall. This year they will perform Shakespeare's Merchant
of Venice on September 19, 21, & 22. Make sure you get your tickets to see
this amazing acting troupe comprised of 5(that's right, only 5 actors)! They
put their own unique twist on the play that is sure to captivate and awe the
$10.00 for students and $18 for nonstudents.
The 2012 convention was held in New Orleans, A.K.A. the Big Easy, and boy what a town! Jodi and Cassandra traveled over 1000 miles round trip and 8 1/2 hours by car each way to attend this year's convention. "We increased our chapter presence by 100%" Jodi remarked as she was the only one to attend last year's convention and this year Cassandra joined her.
It was an especially rewarding trip as our chapter picked up two awards. Cassandra was nominated during the Fall for a Student Leadership award and brought that home! Our chapter was also submitted into the Best Chapter Blog/Website competition and we were awarded 2nd place and a check that went to our funds! Overall our chapter has been pretty successful this year and has managed to shine on the national level as well by taking home these awards! Congratulations to our chapter for representing at the 2012 convention. Hopefully next year we can increase our attendance even more. The 2013 convention is set to take place in Portland, Oregon mid March.
See you there!

Dr. Steven Kellman moderates the second annual Name That Author event in
Ballroom 1 from 7 to 9 p.m.
The inaugural Name That Author competition took place Friday October 28, 2011 and was a great success for both the English Department at UTSA and the Sigma Tau Delta Beta Omega chapter. We had four Undergraduates compete and one Graduate representative. Undergraduate Jana Cobb took home 1st place and Undergraduate/Chapter President Jodi Ierien took home 3rd place.
The new 2012-2013 school year has begun and with that we are in the process of electing new officers.
The Actors from the London Stage performed Shakespeare's The Tempest in 2011. Sigma Tau Delta once again helped by providing ushers and ticket takers for the event. The show started at 7:30 pm on Wednesday October the 5th, Friday October the 7th and Saturday October the 8th. The performances were held in the Arts Building's Recital Hall.
