  8:30AM 5:00PM Screen-Free Week   The Illinois State Museum will join thousands of schools, libraries, and community groups nationwide in a coordinated effort to encourage millions of Americans to turn off televisions, computers, and video games for seven days and turn on the world around them. Screen-Free Week is a chance for children to read, play, think, create, be more physically active, and to spend more time with friends and family. From Monday, April 29 through Sunday, May 5, the Museum will turn off all multimedia screens in its exhibitions. For the last few years, the Museum has recognized the importance of Screen Free Week as a respite from the screen media that dominate the lives of so many people. “In the past, we have encouraged families to visit the Museum during this week, but this year we decided to lead by example and turn off our screens as well,” said Elizabeth Bazan, Mary Ann MacLean Educator. Museum staff hope that by turning off the screens, visitors will be encouraged to look more closely at the rich array of objects and other educational materials on display. Screen Free Week On average, preschool children spend over four and a half hours a day consuming screen media, while older children spend over seven hours a day including multitasking. Excessive screen time is linked to a number of problems for children, including childhood obesity, poor school performance, and problems with attention span. Screen-Free Week (formerly TV-Turnoff) is coordinated by the Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood, a national advocacy organization devoted to reducing the impact of commercialism on children. Since the Week’s founding in 1994, it has been celebrated by millions of children and their families worldwide. For more information, visit www.screenfree.org. The Illinois State Museum is an institution dedicated to inspiring people of all ages to discover and care about Illinois’ natural and cultural resources and artistic heritage. The Museum’s extensive collections and research activities provide the foundation for exhibitions and public programs that tell the story of the land, life, people, and art of Illinois. The Illinois State Museum is located at 502 S. Spring Street (the corner of Spring and Edwards Streets) in Springfield, and is open 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday, noon to 5 p.m. Sunday. Admission is free. Parking is available nearby, and the building is ADA accessible.

  8:00PM 10:30PM Les Liaisons Dangereuses   “Les Liaisons Dangereuses,” the play adaptation based on the original 18th century text by Choderlos de Laclos, and adapted for the stage by Christopher Hampton, will receive a new staging by LLCC Theatre in May. Performance dates are May 3, 4, 10 and 11 at 8 p.m. in the lower level of Sangamon Hall South on the Lincoln Land Community College campus in Springfield. The production contains mature themes and presentations of violence and is not recommended for persons under the age of 17. Tickets, at $12 for adults and $10 for college students and seniors, go on sale April 17 at the LLCC Ticket Office in Menard Hall, which is open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays, or may be reached by calling 217-786-2762. Seating is limited and advance tickets are recommended. This postmodern treatment of the play (that has seen numerous stagings and film adaptations) will address the issues of power and oppression in the modern age. Calling on strong images of control reaching from personal to political, it deals keenly with a world in which political power breeds excess. Echoes of these excesses resonate in this production from 18th century revolutions to present-day political scandals. LLCC’s theatre program values the expression of arts in all forms and the cultivation of arts and arts appreciation. The program embraces diverse and divergent world views while championing humanity in its complexity: its weaknesses and strengths, its failings and its successes. Consistent with this values statement, there will be a post-show discussion led by LLCC faculty immediately following each performance to provide an open forum for audience members to reflect on the issues at hand.
