EAU CLAIRE -- The classic blues trio Blue Max will open the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire's Summer Session Programs for the week of July 7 with a free outdoor show beginning at 7 p.m. Monday on the Central Campus Mall (rain: Schofield Auditorium). Refreshments will be sold.
Led by guitarist Howard Luedtke, Blue Max has opened shows for such blues heavyweights as Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown, Lonnie Brooks and Kenny Neal. To a considerable following throughout Wisconsin and Minnesota, Luedtke is known for his "virtuosic flourishes that make him one of the area's finest musicians" (Eau Claire Leader-Telegram).
Also on campus during the week of July 7 are these free Summer Session Programs:
- "Twelfth Night" (1996) will screen at noon and 7 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday in Davies Theatre. British stage legend Trevor Nunn - director of "Les Miserables," "Cats" and "Sunset Boulevard" on top of his tenure at the Royal Shakespeare Company - orchestrated this adaptation of Shakespeare's comedy of mistaken identities and humorous miscommunications. Updated to the Victorian Era, the lighthearted tale of romance and gender confusion stars Imogen Stubbs, Helena Bonham Carter and Toby Stephens as the three corners of the triangle. The 125-minute film is rated PG-13.
- The Robert Baca Quartet will present a jazz concert from noon to 1 p.m. Wednesday on the Central Campus Mall (rain: The Cabin, Davies Center). Refreshments will be sold.
Summer Session Programs continue through Aug. 7. A complete schedule is available from the Activities and Programs Office, Davies Center 133, (715) 836-4833.
