“Do you believe in magic?”

PERFECT FOR AGES 3-9 RUNNING MAY 6 – 11, 2019

Presentation House Theatre is thrilled to present Linda A. Carson’s enthralling new spin on the much-loved children’s classic, Jack and the Beanstalk.

This imaginative adaptation finds Jack, a farmer’s son, surrounded by land that just won’t grow anything.

Compelled to sell his beloved toys to feed his hungry family, Jack instead trades them for magic beans, from which a towering beanstalk grows.

Jack climbs the beanstalk and is taken on an amazing journey filled with excitement and peril.

Children, young and old, will delight in this simple, but highly engaging, environmental tale.

Adult Speaker Series: Evolutionary Psychology
Monday May 13, 2019  |  7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
The Exploration Place, 333 Becott Place

Dr. Paul Siakaluk was born and raised in Calgary, AB. He received his undergraduate and Masters degrees at the University of Calgary, and his PhD at the University of Alberta. He taught at the University of Southern Mississippi for two years prior to his arrival at UNBC in 2004. Dr. Siakaluk is a cognitive psychologist whose research interests during the past decade have focused on understanding how bodily experience contributes to the formation and retrieval of word meaning. One of Dr. Siakaluk’s intellectual interests is evolutionary psychology, and he has taught such a course at UNBC multiple times.
Since the re-emergence of evolutionary thinking in scientific psychology in the mid-1980s, various schools of evolutionary psychology have been advanced. In this talk I will present the core, foundational assumptions and theoretical considerations of the (original) school of evolutionary psychology developed by David Buss, John Tooby, Leda Cosmides, Margo Wilson, and Martin Daly. I will also present research findings in the areas of sexual jealousy and (if time allows) cheater detection as “case studies” in how an evolutionary perspective may, or may not, be useful in better understanding human psychology.
Doors open at 6:45pm
Lecture at 7pm
Q+A after the lecture
Cash beer and wine bar.
As always, this event is free thanks in part to generous support from the Prince George Community Foundation and the Regional District of Fraser-Fort George.
