    Resinski at Work

    Join us for a “production” to celebrate, honor, and remember Kenny Resinski, professor of theatre from 1967 to 2013, who passed away on December 15, 2013, unable to recover from heart valve surgery.

    • Opportunities to review the history of theatre at Saint Francis in photos and videos;
    • “Bunga-biela” activities in the finest Resinski tradition;
    • A chance to enjoy Kenny’s vast necktie collection and to donate so you can add one or more of his to your own closet;
    • Time to share theatre stories informally with others in attendance;
    • A place for you to recall and celebrate Saint Francis theatre traditions;
    • The pinning of a new Gypsy Robe with mementos and memories of Kenny and theatre at Saint Francis;
    • A private bar to aid in the festivities.
