November Events at CCBC

Oct 24, 2016

Autumn brings a host of events to the Community College of Baltimore County. Performing Arts continues its salute to the Bard (A Year of Shakespeare) with the CCBC Catonsville Academic Theatre production of Hamlet Lost/Found Nov. 3-7. The Annual Fall Dance Concert, held this year Nov. 17-19 at CCBC Catonsville, will feature “Dancing Ophelia,” inspired by the women in Shakespeare plays and choreographed by its creator and director guest artist Alice Howes. And music abounds at month ranging from Beatboxing to flamenco!

If you missed the October Job Fair, don’t despair. CCBC, Baltimore County Chamber of Commerce and Baltimore County Office of Economic and Workforce Development host another one Nov. 10 at CCBC Essex.

Have you visited the new state-of-the-art Mathematics and Science Hall at CCBC Catonsville? If not, check out the new Benjamin Banneker Planetarium Nov. 11 at 8 p.m. for “The Super Moon,” or bring the children to “Dudley, the Curious Duckling” at 10 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 12. Tucked away on the front lawn of the Dundalk campus, a small domed building is home to the CCBC Dundalk Observatory. Join us there at Nov. 11 at 6:30 p.m. for an hour of stargazing!

It is a tough choice on Saturday, Nov. 5 – You can either help support Children’s Playhouse of Maryland’s youth programs at its Holiday Basket Bingo at CCBC Essex or benefit the Marie Lloyd/Ed Lamon Scholarship Fund by buying tickets to the Bullroast and Shrimp Feast sponsored by CCBC Foundation Dundalk at the UAW Hall on Oldham Street. Regardless, CCBC appreciates your support of its students and programs.
