1. Centenary Corner: Dr. Karl Hricko interviews several cast members of Centenary College's production of "Katrina: the K Word". This play based on the writings of Hurricane Katrina survivors will be performed on Thursday April 30 and Friday May 1 in the Historic Whitney Chapel on the campus of Centenary College.
About the Play
Katrina: the K Word is an original play inspired by true stories of individuals facing one of America's most challenging crises. Both tragically heartbreaking and poignantly uplifting, Katrina chronicles the journeys of New Orleans residents whose lives are forever changed. Some choose to wait out the storm; some can't get out. Some create a new life elsewhere, while others return to help rebuild a broken city.
The script was created by Lisa Brenner and Suzanne Trauth based on transcripts of interviews they conducted with New Orleans' residents in 2007. The play features twelve main characters who cut across racial, gender, age, and class lines. Designed as an ensemble piece, each actor in Katrina: the K Word plays one main role, as well as several small parts.
2. Food Segment: Jewels Quelly, personal chef and caterer from Angel Food Catering in Washington, NJ and Melanie Thiel discuss the many salad possibilities there are for the spring/summer season.
