Rome, Ga. – Selah: A Shorter University Showcase will be held at the Desoto Theatre on Saturday, October 19. The event will feature a wide variety of artistic performances by Shorter students, faculty, and alumni and is open to the public at no charge.
“The event is simply a gift to Rome and Floyd County and communities, near or far,” said Dr. Fabrice Poussin, assistant professor of English and French at Shorter and organizer of the event. “Shorter University has a lot to offer to all, and we felt the Desoto Theatre would be an ideal venue to showcase these amazing talents.”
Doors open at 5 p.m. with activities for children planned from 5 to 6 p.m. The show will begin at 6 p.m. To reserve tickets, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 706-233-7254.
