GREEN BAY – University of Wisconsin-Green Bay Theatre Studio and Alternate Theatre present “The Assassin’s Anthology,” written and directed by Selena Deer, December 6-8, 2018 at 7:30 p.m. in the Jean Weidner Theatre, Weidner Center for the Performing Arts.

Nine assassins live together on an estate, each with their own specialty. Hangman, their leader and #1 assassin, has a secret he has yet to reveal to the others, until the truth is discovered by the newest addition to the team, Candle. Candle’s creative writing and impulsiveness begins to threaten the very rules that Hangman has so direly enforced. Reality begets fantasy when one of the assassins is found dead, and discovered evidence suggests that the infamous mythical assassin, the Executioner, is behind the assassination.

Richter Landers says ‘Snap’ streak may be over

UW-Green Bay social media coordinator Jena Richter Landers was a key source in a recent social media blog. “Snapchat was a large part of UW-Green Bay’s social media strategy, and while it continues to be used, the fact that it doesn’t offer archived analytics has increasingly become an issue,” reported Jena Richter Landers. “After seeing a drastic drop in reach after recent changes to the platform’s delivery of stories, we’ve moved some of the content that we had been putting out on Snapchat Stories to Instagram Stories to receive higher return on investment and more easily measured metrics” (Landers, 2018).
