Abbey Players Open Another Curtain: The Woman In Black

Running for over 26 years in London’s West End, the late Stephen Mallatratt’s ingenious stage adaptation of Susan Hill’s suspenseful novel is a thrill-seeker’s paradise! A play within a play, The Woman in Black follows retired solicitor Arthur Kipps as he hires an actor to help him tell the story of a series of troubling events from his younger years, in a bid to put the memories to bed once and for all. Though first skeptical of the actor’s methods, Kipps eventually embraces his part and launches a series of past recollections. The audience is soon gripped by the powerful storytelling that subtly builds an underlying tension ripe for piercing with sporadic and spine-tingling appearances from the cast of characters.

Introducing the Belmont Abbey College Lateral Entry Alternative Program (LEAP) 

Lateral entry allows qualified individuals to obtain a teaching position in North Carolina and begin teaching right away, while acquiring a professional educator’s license as they teach. The path from lateral entry to full licensure can take as long as 3 years to complete through a menu of state-required classes at a variety of colleges. The Abbey LEAP pathway requires only 6 college classes completed during your first year of teaching! Or you may enter and complete LEAP while you apply for a position, or even while you’re just beginning to consider if the teaching profession is right for you.
