"WHAT THE BUTLER SAW" AT HERSHEL ZOHN THEATRE

New Mexico State University's Department of Theatre Arts presents the comedy "What the Butler Saw" through March 21 at the Hershel Zohn Theatre.

Dr. Prentice, a sex-obsessed psychiatrist, is attempting to seduce a prospective secretary but is frustrated by the arrival of his nymphomaniac wife, an overly enthusiastic hospital inspector, a blackmailing bellboy and a dim-witted policeman. The clinic quickly becomes a bedlam of mistaken identity, undressing, cross-dressing, disappearances, disguises, seductions, screwball antics, dropped trousers and heightened libidos.

For more information or tickets, call the theater box office at (505) 646-4515.

UNIVERSITY MUSEUM HOSTING THREE EXHIBITS

The New Mexico State University Museum is hosting three exhibits during March.

"Images From the Streets: Portraits of Albuquerque Homeless" by Oscar Lozoya, featuring black-and-white studio photographs of homeless people in Albuquerque, will run through March 27.

The traveling exhibit "Preserving Memory: America's Monumental Legacy" also will run through March 27. The exhibit tells the stories behind America's public sculptures, monuments and memorials. One of the panels features Las Cruces' "Roadrunner" sculpture by Olin S. Calk.

"The African-American Community of Las Cruces, 1890-2002," running through April 15, shows the history of the Las Cruces African-American community. Through text and photographs, the exhibit depicts segregation and integration, early settlers, homesteaders, community leaders, neighborhoods and businesses.

The museum, located in Kent Hall at the corner of University Avenue and Solano Drive, is open noon to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Admission is free. For more information call the University Museum at (505) 646-3739.
