Dancers, actors, musicians and improv comics offer a late afternoon smorgasbord of performing arts in the annual Bates Arts in Action concert at 5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 25, in Bates College’s Schaeffer Theatre, 329 College St.

Coordinated by the Robinson Players, Bates’s student-run theater organization, with help from other student clubs and from Hannah Miller ’14, formerly a stage manager for Bates dance, the event is open to the public at no cost. For more information, please call 207-786-6161.

Performers include the Robinson Players; members of the Dynasty Step Team and the Bates Dance Club; the Crosstones and TakeNote a cappella singers; and Strange Bedfellows, an improv comedy troupe.

The performance “is an opportunity for the broader community to hang out in a relaxed environment and witness a large variety of art performed by students,” says Miller, now an academic administrative assistant at Bates.
