The Legacy of Rod Serling: The Twilight Zone is Coming to Park!

This just in from the Serling Conference Committee:

“The Life and Legacy of Rod Serling,” an academic conference hosted by the Park School with the cooperation and assistance of the Theatre Arts Department and the Ithaca College Library Archives, is set for Friday and Saturday, March 28-29, on the campus.

Students may register and pay to attend all the events but there will be several sessions that will not require paying registration, including the Twilight Zone Marathon Friday evening—a repeat of a successful event last April. Come watch some
of the best of the Twilight Zone series episodes.

On Saturday, a cast under the direction of Assistant Professor Jeffrey Tangeman, will present a table read of “Noon on Doomsday,” a never-before-produced script written by Serling and based largely on the tragic murder of Emmett Till, 14, a Chicago youth who was killed in Mississippi in August 1955. His death gave momentum and direction to the growing Civil Rights movement in the United States.

You can find more information on the conference here. www.ithaca.edu/rhp/serling.

Helpingcoordinate this year’s conference are Professors Ari Kissiloff (Strategic Communication) and Barbara Audet (Journalism). Feel free to ask them about it.
