THE UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS DARTMOUTH’S BOIVIN CENTER PRESENT FRENCH CULTURAL EVENTS ON OCTOBER 20 AND DECEMBER 1 

The University of Massachusetts Dartmouth Boivin Center for French Language and Culture announced today that it is sponsoring two exciting cultural performances during the fall academic semester. 

On the evening of Thursday, October 20 at 7 p.m. the UMass Dartmouth drama group, “20 Cent Fiction” will perform the play Huis Clos (No Exit), written by Jean Paul Sartre. The performance will be held in the College of Visual & Performing Arts Building, Room 153. This classic French play will be translated and performed in English. Parking is available in lot # 8. 

Later in the semester on the evening of Monday, December 1, the Boivin Center will present a lively performance by Ms. Annie Royer, a leading French singer and entertainer. Ms. Royer and her band will perform at 7 p.m. in the Main Auditorium on campus. A dance ensemble performing the “can-can” will accompany Ms. Royer and her band. Parking for this performance is available in lots 4 and 5. 

The Boivin Center for French Language and Culture promotes the teaching, research and appreciation of the French language and culture. It acts as a catalyst for French studies at the University and throughout the entire region. 

The Center was founded to create an enduring symbol and on-going testimony to Omer E. Boivin and Laurette Boivin and for the promotion and preservation of the French language and culture. The Boivin Center also sponsors academic scholarships to support undergraduate education in French at UMass Dartmouth. 

Both events are free and open to the public. For more information on these events please contact Mel Yoken at 508 999-8335.
