Heritage Center Staff Spotlight

EmployeeEILEEN SCHUELLER

Eileen has volunteered at Heritage Center for five years.  She was looking for another opportunity to volunteer in the community, so she attended an informational session, and well, the rest is history!  She loves working alongside other volunteers, students, and Heritage Center staff, as well as meeting the patrons who attend events.  Eileen’s favorite performer so far at Heritage Center was Chris Botti.  She stated, “It will be hard to top him.”  When not volunteering, Eileen loves to travel wherever she can.  You can also find her playing bridge or other card games or at exercise class, the pool, or the golf course. Eileen is also always up for a meal with family and friends.  Thanks for being such a loyal volunteer, Eileen!

STOMP 2Saturday, February 23, 2019 | 7:30 p.m.
STOMP
JOHN AND ALICE BUTLER HALL

Stomp is a joyful, witty, and wordless show that has been seen all over the world. An eight-member cast with energy to burn creates beautiful music and sly humor with found objects: Zippo lighters, push brooms, wooden poles, hammer handles, garbage cans, inner tubes, matchboxes, and yes, even the kitchen sink. There’s no traditional narrative; both household and industrial objects find new life as musical instruments in this unique combination of percussion, movement, and visual comedy. It is a journey through sound, a celebration of the everyday, and a comic interplay of characters wordlessly communicating through dance and drum.
