Panel: What Arts Are Good For
Theater: An Inconvenient Sleuth
It’s elementary, my dear, that the Sherlock inside of all of us will not be able to stay away from this weekend’s Triangle Show presentation ofAn Inconvenient Sleuth. Promising “the best of times and the worst of crimes,” audience members are transported to Smalltown, a village that has not seen crime in 30 years ... that is, until their beloved mayor is kidnapped (cue serious music). This “whodunit” mystery will have you at the edge of your seat and rolling in the aisles.

Dance: BAC Dance presents 'The Academy'
BAC's Academy is the at the top of my “reach schools” list. BAC brings the moves in their too-cool-for-school fall show. With a promo video featuring Lil Mama's 2007 hit "Lip Gloss," it is clear that lip gloss isn't the only thing that will be popping in this show. BAC dance shows are an experience, and this one is no exception. Get ready to relive high school — except that your high school is completely populated by the most coordinated nerds, effortlessly cool slackers and fierce jocks you've ever seen. Grab your backpack, tuck in that shirt and don't forget your lunchbox on your way to the Academy!

Event: Orange and Black Ball
The ball is back. A high school dance on steroids, the Orange and Black Ball invites the student body to Dillon Gymnasium for music, food, dancing and friends. The origins of OBB date back to the 1950s when The Daily Princetonian and Tiger Magazine held a joint bash titled the "Prince-Tiger Ball." Be ready to dance the night away at this Princeton tradition.
