By Paul Miller

Knightly News Co-Adviser

On this episode of the Knightly News Podcast, we welcome Director of First-Year Experience Janet Bixler to discuss the upcoming “The Hand That Holds the Quill” theatrical performance and Athletic Director Kasey Hicks and new women’s head basketball coach Erin Miller to preview the upcoming season.

During our time with Bixler, we discuss the upcoming original production “The Hand That Holds the Quill.” The original production was to take place in 2020 but was postponed due to the pandemic.

According to the website for the show, “This production goes beyond a history play. It is a tale that weaves the struggles and triumphs of white and black, rich and poor men and women of 1787 with the challenges and victories we all face today.”

This production takes a look at the original scribe for the Constitution Jacob Shallus but also weaves in lessons of class struggles that are still applicable today.

The show will take place in the Capital BlueCross Theatre on Sept. 16 and 17 at 7:30 p.m. and Sept. 19 for a special 2:30 p.m. matinee.

Tickets can be purchased at http://www.givebutter.com/quill.

On the second segment of the podcast, we are joined by Athletic Director Kasey Hicks and Erin Miller, the new head women’s basketball coach for the Lady Knights.

This segment discusses Miller’s background and how she ended up with Central Penn. In addition, both Hicks and Miller discuss the hardships of not having a season in 2020 and what fans can look forward to when the season begins in November.

This segment also features Knightly News Co-President Jenelle Dulack, who shares her experiences in sports as part of our volleyball team. Within, she shares how a coach can have an extremely important impact on improving in sports and in life.
