HEAD: Nursing Expansion Impacts Parking and Traffic at Lee College

Due to Lee College’s expansion of the McNulty-Haddick Nursing Center, parking in front of the nursing center and adjacent to the east side of the college’s Performing Arts Center, will be inaccessible until expansion of the nursing center is complete, sometime in late 2017.

To accommodate PAC event patrons, Lee College is offering shuttle service from parking lots 11 and 13. Parking lot 11 is accessed either from Gulf, Felton or Whiting streets, parking lot 13 by Texas or Whiting. PAC parking on the west side of the building is still available.

Shuttles will run approximately every ten minutes from both lots 11 and 13 and the circular drive in front of the PAC main entrance will remain open for drop off and pick up. Both lots, however, are still within comfortable walking distance of the PAC main entrance.

Lee College security officers will be on hand to assist with directions, traffic and general assistance. Shuttle service is only available for PAC performances. A campus map is available for viewing online from the college’s homepage, www.lee.edu or by typing in this address: http://www.lee.edu/maps . Directional signage will also be deployed to assist patrons with parking and traffic flow.

For more information, please contact the PAC box office at (281) 425-6255. Box office hours of operation are Monday through Thursday, 8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. and Friday 8:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. The box office is closed Saturdays and Sundays but open one hour prior to a scheduled event.

Lee College apologizes in advance for any inconvenience and would like to thank the public for its understanding while the college works to improve and enhance the learning environment of its nursing students.

“South Pacific” by Rogers and Hammerstein  has  been  a  staple of  American  musical  theater  for  67 years, and yet it still resounds today.  “In  my  opinion,  the  mark  of  a  great  piece  of  theater  is  three-fold” says director of the upcoming  Baytown  Little  Theater  production  of  “South  Pacific”  Jim Wadzinski.    “First,  does  it  stand the test of time? Does it speak to audiences years or even decades after  it  was  written?  Secondly,  does it entertain? Finally, does it make you think about the human condition?  ‘South Pacific’ does all three.”  Many  theater  critics  over  the years have opined that South Pacific”  is  dated.  However,  recent history  indicates  otherwise.  The 2008  Broadway  revival  ran  for almost  1,000  performances  and  won  seven  Tony  awards,  and  the  2010  Carnegie  Hall  concert  performance  featuring  Reba  McEntire,  Robert  Stokes  Mitchell,  and  Alec  Baldwin  was  a  smashing  success.  “I think the reason for the continuing  success  of  the  show  revolves  around  Rogers  and  Hammerstein’s genius in telling a very pointed  story  that  is  couched  in  wonderful   entertainment”   says   Wadzinski.    “On    the    surface, “South  Pacific”  is  a  nice  love story with lots of fun songs.  But make no mistake, the show is really  about  racism,  and  when  you  consider the time period in which it was written, they were taking a huge risk”.  “I  chose  “South  Pacific”  partially   because,  unfortunately,   it   remains so pertinent to the national  dialogue  regarding  race  right  now. I also love the history behind the show.”  “South  Pacific”  will  be  presented  at  the  Lee  College  Performing  Arts  Center  on  July  22,  23, 24, 29, 30, and 31.  Graciously  underwritten  by  Community  Toyota*Honda*Kia,   Houston Methodist   San   Jacinto   Hospital,  Hotchkiss  Disposal,  Capital  Bank, Texas Capital Management, Baytown   Symphony   Orchestra,   the  City  of  Baytown,  Lee  College,  and  Toyota  Financial  Services, tickets for “South Pacific” are  now  on  sale  and  can  be  purchased online at www.lee.edu and clicking  on  the  Performing  Arts  Center  tab  or  by  calling  the  Lee  box office at 281-425-6255.
