Archived Eagerheart Performance Made Available Online

The Division of Performing Arts at Southwestern College has made a recording of the 75th Anniversary production of Eagerheart available online (see embedded video below) and invites, students, alumni, and the community to participate in the long-held tradition from the safety of their homes this Christmas season. 

Given the context of 2020, a live performance of Eagerheart was not possible, accordingly, the Campus Players and Division of Performing Arts offer the 75th Anniversary production, which was celebrated in 2007.

Eagerheart, a legend framed around Christ and the Holy Family, was written by A.M. Buckton. It was first directed by Southwestern professor Helen Graham for the 1933 Christmas Chapel. Eagerheart has been performed annually by the Campus Players as the honorary dramatic organization’s Christmas present to the college and community since it began.  

The production recorded in 2007 was a collaborative effort of Campus Players, A Cappella Choir, South Kansas Symphony, and the Communication Department. The performance was directed by Roger Moon.

The Campus Players look forward to continuing the tradition of Eagerheart by presenting a live performance in December 2021.

"Hail Friend, how goes it with the eternal quest?"
