PSU TIGER roars to support suicide prevention and other student stressors

September 27th, 2013 by Lynn

    PLYMOUTH — Plymouth State University’s Theater Integrating Guidance, Education and Responsibility, or TIGER, will present “Transitions,” a musical about college, choices and change, Oct. 8.

    “Transitions” is an educational production based on the writings of Plymouth State University students about sensitive issues that cause students stress. The cast includes area students Will Bolton, Sarah Flower, Alex Hunton and Rachel Perelli, under the artistic direction of Trish Lindberg. Will Ogmundson of Sutton is the musical director and composer and Lisa Travis of Holderness is the choreographer.

    The production uses theatre, music and dance to illustrate ways in which college-age students can cope with the stressors of college life and make positive choices for themselves and others.

    The performances and discussions will be held Oct. 8 at 7 p.m. in Hyde Hall Room 120, on Langdon Street in Plymouth. The performances are acceptable for students age 16 years and older, and adults. There is no charge for admission.

    “Transitions” is presented as a part of a Garrett Lee Smith Campus Suicide Prevention Grant awarded by the U.S. Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration in conjunction with TIGER and the National Alliance on Mental Illness of New Hampshire.
