The free event will be held at 4 p.m. Tuesday on the Intramural Fields.

‘Edges’

QuantUM Entertainment presents “Edges,” a song cycle about the trials and tribulations of moving into adulthood that examines the search for love, commitment and meaning. A song cycle is a group, or cycle, of individual songs that are performed in a sequence as a unit. Originally written by Tony-nominated Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, the play asks coming-of-age questions tailored for college audiences. The show is free for students and will be playing at the Cosford Cinema at 8 p.m. on Thursday and Friday. “Edges” will be screened again at 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. Saturday.
