Campus Ministry Headlights trips will be going to East Los Angeles, CA, Denver, CO, and to Chicago, IL during spring break of 2018. The dates are March 3-10 or 11th and the cost is $325. These trips are opportunities to immerse yourself in an experience that will help you to better understand the realities and needs of people with economic, education, cultural and social challenges. Though there are three different trips, all trips will focus on an understanding of Catholic social teaching, a chance to meet people whose lives are dedicated to social justice, an opportunity to encounter people who live in the reality of poverty and homelessness, and also a chance to interact with immigrants. Reflection and prayer are also vital components of the trip. These trips are open to students of all faiths, because diversity in viewpoints allows us all to grow as a community. Register online

Theatre: The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time
03/09/2018 - 7:30pm to 9:30pm
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, Mar. 9-24, 7:30 p.m., Carroll College FLEX Theatre
The Helena Theatre Company is celebrating its 25th Anniversary with a production of the Tony Award Winning (Best Play, 2015) The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time based on the novel by Mark Hadden adapted by Simon Stephens. The production is a collaboration with Carroll College Theatre.
In this play, 15-year-old Christopher has an extraordinary brain. He is exceptional at mathematics but ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. He has never ventured alone beyond the end of his road, he detests being touched, and he distrusts strangers. Now it is 7 minutes after midnight, and Christopher stands beside his neighbor’s dead dog, Wellington, who has been speared with a garden fork. Finding himself under suspicion, Christopher is determined to solve the mystery of who murdered Wellington, and he carefully records each fact of the crime. But his detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a thrilling journey that upturns his world.
Theaters across the country have been waiting for Dramatist Play Service to release the rights for the play. For years, the popular book club and school reading, The Curious Incident….. was thought be unadaptable because the main character, Christopher, an autistic adolescent lives in an interior world built on the fact that he “sees everything.” A brilliant visual play opened in London in 2014 and won 7 Olivier Awards, the equivalent of Tony’s on London’s West End. The next year it moved to Broadway to great acclaim and the Tony for Best Play. The staging captures the exciting depth of Christopher’s vision as he solves the mystery of the dog in the night-time and the unexpected mysteries of his life. Directed by Ed Noonan and Kevin Casey.
Shows will be at 7:30 p.m. on March 9, 10, 15, 16, 17, 22, 23, & 24 with a 2:30 p.m. matinee on March 18. Tickets are available at the door or online. Tickets are $16 for general admission, $10 for students and seniors, and $5 with a current Carroll College ID ($3 on 3/18 with Carroll ID). Call 406- 431-3750 for info on group rates.
