The campus and community are invited to a holiday light show, “Shifting Illuminations,” at Clarion University’s Wilkinson Hall (on the north side of campus) Dec. 1-12. Wilkinson, one of Clarion’s two high-rise dormitories, is located on the north side of the campus. There will be two 30-minute shows a night, one at 7 p.m. and another at 8 p.m.
The show is free and is intended to be viewed from spectators’ automobiles. The sound that accompanies the show will be broadcast on 88.7 FM. Spectators should park in the hockey rink area or the area behind the hockey rink, off of Wood Street. Students will be on hand to direct parking. The show is produced with more than 2,500 lights and 800 feet of electrical cord.
The project was spearheaded by sophomore Hannah Gloeckl and senior Zack Rosen, both resident assistants at Wilkinson Hall. Gloeckl has produced 13 shows at Bethel Park High School and Clarion University. Rosen has training in technical theatre, producing 18 shows at McDowell High School. Gloeckl and Rosen hope to grow the program to be a fundraiser for local charities.
Clarion University is the high-achieving, nationally recognized, comprehensive university that delivers a personal and challenging academic experience.
