Japanese Winter Festival
3-5 p.m., March 5; Quiet Dining Room
Join the festivities as the Japanese Culture Club celebrates three famous January, February and March-based festivals from Japan. Seijin-no-hi, or “Coming of Age Day,” honors those who have turned 20 years old between April 2, 2018 and April 1, 2019. Setsubun, the bean-throwing festival, entails the tossing of beans in order to rid the spring of evil spirits, and is known for the donning of ogre masks (which you can make at this event). During Hinamatsuri, the doll festival, dolls are displayed to represent various royal figures from the Heian period (794 to 1185).

“By the pricking of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes.”
Hailed by many as one of William Shakespeare’s greatest plays, “Macbeth” will become the first of his works to ever be produced by SCC’s theater department. Witness this historical event unfold as a royal warning of suspicion-gone-awry is complemented by sword fights, bloodshed, witches and ghosts.
