The Farnsworth Invention closes out the season with a gripping script and an arresting cast. Following the words penned by Oscar- and Emmy-winner Aaron Sorkin—the brain behind the The West Wing and The Social Network University of Evansville's dedicated theater students will ebb and flow under the direction of R. Scott Lank as they convey the compelling, fictionalized tale of television's germination. The production pits the Idaho prodigy and autodidact Philo T. Farnsworth against communications tycoon David Sarnoff. Seizing emotions in its depiction of the small screen's infancy, the story potently portrays the two characters' competitive quest to develop the foundation of what would later become the TV- and Betamax-fueled culture of today.
As a personal chef and motivational speaker, Cheryl Mochau will spark the culinary creativity of a hungry audience in a two-hour demonstrative cooking demonstration. Guests will get firsthand insight into eight party-optimized recipes including shrimp tarts, spinach-and-feta phyllo squares, pineapple punch, and a ranch torte ideal for dipping. During cooking demonstrations, Cheryl explains the health credentials of each ingredient, answers questions from audience members, and suggests celebratory serving ideas that rival a nacho-cheese ice luge. Practical advice on party-menu planning and kitchen-safety tips are sure to prevent a host of music-stopping debacles. While instructors take care of cooking duties during live demonstrations, onlookers can sample the items in the spotlight, soaking up inspiration to craft culinary clones in their own mad-scientist kitchens. In addition to savory knowledge, the up to 120 attendees will take home door prizes and printed copies of the featured recipes.
