Robert A. Richter '82, Director of Arts Programming

The past year and a half have been unlike anything we have experienced before.  It has been devoid of live performances, which stimulate our brains and enrich our souls.  Live performance is coming back slowly and this fall we will be welcoming audiences back to Connecticut College’s performance venues.  We plan to announce our season by the end of August.  So, please check back to see what music, theater and dance performances will grace our stages.  If you have not already done so, please sign up to be on our mailing list to receive the annual brochure and email announcements.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

Selected Shorts at Connecticut College: Stories Across Borders

Streaming Virtual Event

Thursday, 11 March 2021



 The hit public radio series Selected Shorts comes to Connecticut College to share dazzling short fiction from across the globe. With stories about parenthood, love, loss, and identity, authors Julia Alvarez, Lesley Nneka Arimah, Alfred Döblin and Laura Chow Reeve reveal that we are united by our joys, fears, grief, and triumphs. With performances by Kate Burton (Grey's Anatomy), Laura Gómez (Orange Is the New Black), Russell G. Jones (Tommy), and Jennifer Lim (Jade Dragon).

 Our greatest actors transport us through the magic of fiction, one short story at a time. Sometimes funny. Always moving. Selected Shorts connects you to the world with a rich diversity of voices from literature, film, theater, and comedy.

The performance is no longer available for viewing.
