SFA University Series opens with The Second City comedy show


 

 

NACOGDOCHES, Texas – Fans of comedy geniuses John Belushi, Bill Murray and Steve Carell or Tina Fey, Stephen Colbert and Amy Poehler will not want to miss a Nacogdoches performance of the newest improv stars of The Second City, Chicago’s renowned comedy club.


The College of Fine Arts at Stephen F. Austin State University will open its 2019-20 University Series with a performance by The Second City at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 6, in W.M. Turner Auditorium on the SFA campus.


Since opening in Chicago in 1959, this small cabaret theatre as grown to become the most influential and prolific comedy empire in the world, developing an entirely unique way of creating art and fostering a generation of superstars. Local fans will now have the opportunity to enjoy their improvisational approach to comedy in a live performance on Turner stage featuring comedy’s newest, up-and-coming celebrities, according to Scott Shattuck, associate dean of the College of Fine Arts and director of the University Series.


“The Second City is truly the epicenter of the comedy world,” Shattuck said, “having given us most of the casts of ‘Saturday Night Live,’ ‘SCTV,’ ‘The Daily Show’ and more. It has been too long since their national tour visited the SFA campus in Nacogdoches.”


The Second City began as an unconventional approach to both theater and comedy. Immediately, its alumni, which included soon-to-be superstars Alan Arkin, Joan Rivers, Gilda Radner, Dan Aykroyd, Fred Willard and Belushi, launched the theatre into the international spotlight. The Second City also launched the careers of Chris Farley, Martin Short, John Candy, Mike Myers, Rick Moranis and other comedic actors.


Today, The Second City is a world-class entertainment company, continuing to produce premier talent in all three of its locations – Chicago, Toronto and Hollywood – and entertaining more than one million audience members a year. In addition to its own stages, Second City Touring Companies perform electrifying revues and original productions across North America and abroad.


“A recent showcase of their touring cast’s performance had us rolling in the aisles,” Shattuck recalled. “Only a small part of their act is political satire, and they poked fun at all sides with equal glee. Their ability to turn every aspect of modern life into hilarity is truly delightful.”


This performance is recommended for mature audiences.


Prior to the SFA performance, Jackie Rosenfeld, lecturer in the SFA School of Theatre, will present an informative talk at 7 p.m. in Griffith Gallery. The gallery is located across the hall from Turner Auditorium, which is inside the Griffith Fine Arts Building, 2222 Alumni Drive. The audience is invited back to the gallery for a post-performance reception to meet the performers.


Single event ticket prices for the University Series are $30 for adults, $24 for seniors, $15 for SFA faculty and staff and $12 for non-SFA students/youth. Tickets for SFA students are $3.  Season tickets are still available and offer consistent seating throughout the season as well as additional discounts.


For more information or to purchase tickets, visit finearts.sfasu.edu, stop by the Box Office in Room 211 of the Griffith Fine Arts Building, or call (936) 468-6407 or (888) 240-ARTS.


Cutline: Comedy-improvisation ensemble The Second City will open the 2019-20 University Series at SFA with a performance at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 6, in  W.M. Turner Auditorium on the university campus.

Panola hires Alex Furr to lead women's basketball


 

 

 

 

Leading the Panola College Women’s Basketball team for the 2019-2020 season will be Alex Furr, the 2018 Women’s Basketball Coaches Association Assistant Coach of the Year. Furr, an East Texas native, has spent the past four years at New Mexico Junior College, working as assistant coach and recruiting coordinator.

 

A 2010 graduate of Athens High School, Furr earned her bachelor of science degree from Fresno State University in Fresno, Calif., in 2014, and her master of science in sports psychology from Fresno State in 2016.

 

During her time at Fresno State, Furr played for three head coaches, earning the coveted Iron Bulldog Award for the Fresno State Strength and Conditioning Program. She also won the Paul Schechter Courage Award, presented annually to student-athletes who have overcome a physical challenge to become a champion. While at Fresno State, she earned a spot in the Top 10 All-Time in “three pointers made” and “career free throws percentage.”

 

Furr comes to Panola from New Mexico Junior College where she worked with the #1 Pre-Season NCJAA team in the nation. The team had the best finish in school history, as national runner up to the NJCAA tournament.

 

While playing at Athens High School, Furr was named the 2010 Texas Association of Basketball Coaches “Miss Texas” award, earned all-state recognition three years in a row, recorded 3.169 career points, made 337 total three-pointers, averaged 36 PPG as a senior player; averaged 25.7 PPG over her career; scored more than 40 points in 29 games, scored more than 50 points four times, and had a career high of 54 points in one game.

 

At New Mexico Junior College, Furr adjusted her approach from player to coach, sharing her knowledge and experience with her players. “There is no doubt in my mind that I have found what I have been waiting for,” she said, when discussing her decision to take on the head coaching position at Panola College.

 

Don Clinton, Athletic Director and Vice President of Student Services, said he is excited to have Coach Furr join the Panola College coaching staff.

 

“She has an incredible basketball pedigree with her dad being a highly successful JUCO coach at TVCC,” Clinton said. “She has grown up in the gym and has excelled as a player and a young coach. She has been deemed as one of the rising coaching stars in the country and was voted assistant coach of the year. She has only been coaching three years in college and has been around success continuously. We are excited for the energy and all of what she will bring to the program.”
