If you've been watching "Jeopardy," the classic answer-and-question quiz show, during the past couple weeks, you may have noticed a familiar face. Seth Wilson, a PhD student in UGA's theater department, won his ninth straight game Thursday to bring his total to $209,801 in winnings.
That's a lot of money.

Like all of us, Athens resident Michael DiNardo was pretty psyched about Jacob Eason's touchdown pass to Isaiah McKenzie that beat Missouri Saturday night.
Some might say he took it a bit too far.
DiNardo's roommate, Jeff Moore, posted a video to Twitter of DiNardo celebrating the epic play—a celebration that included putting his head through a pane of glass. The video went viral as an example of just how boneheaded Georgia fans can be.

On Friday, Sept. 2, the Georgia Theatre opened its doors for what can only be described as a truly visceral experience: the second annual Vape Olympics, hosted by downtown Athens’Vape Dynamiks.

The home of painter Yvonne Studevan and her husband Russell is elegant and traditional, complete with earth toned walls, a stone fireplace and leather chesterfield chairs you can sink into. Hardly bohemian, it is remarkably different from many of the Athens area artists’ homes featured in WUGA’s Artist In Residence Series in the past. Yet, like all of them, the house, which was on tour last Saturday to benefit the station, reveals the artist’s unique vision and testifies to her craft, passions and beliefs.

Hairspray: The Oconee Youth Playhouse has “gone big” for this teenage musical about big hair, big change and big love in the early 1960s: they’ve rented wigs, costumes and set pieces directly from a company that produced one of the national tours. It’s a powerful mix when you add their usual high standard for choreography and strong local teenage talent, which includes Gracin Wilkins as dancer/activist/dreamer Tracy Turnblad and Cameron Loyal—who is heading off to the American Academy for Dramatic Arts this fall—as Seaweed Stubbs.Hairspray is a Tony Award winner that celebrates dance, competition, celebrity, rebellion, and—of course—hair. It’s best done by teenagers, and OYP offers some of the best.
