Through May 10: REP stages 'WIT'

The Resident Ensemble Players closes the 2013-14 season with the play "WIT" by Margaret Edson, running through May 10 in the Roselle Center for the Arts.

April 24-25: VAWA conference

The University of Delaware will host the conference "Powerful Partnerships: 20 Years of the Violence Against Women Act and the Path Ahead" on Thursday and Friday, April 24 and 25, at Clayton Hall.

There will be a live Latin band, Orquesta Insaciable, and traditional food.

The theme for the event is "Dia de Los Muertos," or "Day of the Dead," a holiday acknowledging and honoring deceased loved ones in celebration, rather than mourning. It is a loving ritual, full of joy and remembrance allowing the dead to return to their earthly homes and visit with their loved ones. Its origin is traced back to Mexico and has spread and been celebrated around the world. This event is traditionally celebrated Nov. 1 and 2.
