More students, a new theater, bigger shows -- and Dan Miller is just getting warmed up. The Dakota Wesleyan University assistant professor of communication and theater, and director of theater, said the school's theater program has grown from just three student majors in 2003-2004 to 11 currently. In his eighth year at DWU, Miller said soon after he joined the program he started the school's bachelor of fine arts in theater. While Miller credits the growing program to a number of factors, he said the BFA is definitely one.
If ever there were a decade known for its music, it's the 1980s. Conjuring up images of big hair, bright colors and Madonna's off-the-shoulder shirts, the defining sounds of the '80s ranged from Michael Jackson's pop prowess to Poison power ballads.

Tickets are $40 and available at the Corn Palace box office at 995-8430 or cornpalace.org.

Maybe they should call it Pink Friday. Just like the Christmas season spells ringing phones, extra help and long hours for retailers, there's another day that brings much of the same for florists: Valentine's Day. "Valentine's Day is our biggest holiday of the season," said Dick Anderson, co-owner of Cherrybee's Floral and Gifts on Mitchell's Main Street.
