Temple Theaters presents Chekhov’s
‘The Sea Gull’

Temple Theaters is producing a show rarely seen on stage at colleges and universities. Russian dramatist Anton Chekhov’s The Sea Gull is a love story centering on a young playwright named Constantine and his undying quest for Nina, an aspiring actress.
“This production is a huge challenge, especially for young actors, because it is about mature people, and young people don’t always have the life experience to draw from,” said director Kevin Cotter, an associate professor of theater at the School of Communications and Theater. [more]

This Week in Temple History
November 18, 1971

   The Temple Times reported that two major buildings were under construction at the Health Sciences Center at a cost of more than $13 million, and the site for a third had been cleared. The $8 million Pharmacy-Allied Health Center would be going up on the northeast corner of Broad Street and Rising Sun Avenue, and the $5.8 million Faculty-Student Union and Continuing Education Building will be built on the southwest corner of Broad and Ontario streets. A site for a $2.2 million six-level garage with space for 500 cars had been cleared on the northeast corner of Broad and Tioga streets and construction was expected to begin soon.

   The Pharmacy-Allied Health Center would permit the College of Allied Health Professions and the School of Pharmacy to consolidate in one structure, and allow both schools to expand student enrollment. It would also enable the School of Dentistry to take over the existing Dental-Pharmacy Building. The Faculty-Student Union and Continuing Education Building, with a basement and sub-basement, would provide space for a bookstore, recreation and meeting rooms, an auditorium, student activity offices, workrooms and dining facilities.
