gag-reflexMary Lauran Hall ’10 says:

Gag Reflex, Wesleyan’s oldest improv comedy group, is holding auditions! Maybe you saw us joke about Julia Child and asparagus on Saturday night, or maybe you just like making stuff up. Maybe you’re just ready to be awesome. Either way, stop by and try out! No preparation necessary, because it’s improvisation and stuff. Stop by any time during the auditions time slots, it’ll only take 15 minutes.

Gag Reflex auditions are: Friday (9/11) from 4:30-6:30, and Saturday (9/12) from 1:00-3:00 in the Fayerweather rehearsal rooms, downstairs in that building next to Usdan.

Come try out for Onomatopoiea, the all female A Cappella group! Wednesday (9/9) and Thursday (9/10) from 8-10 pm  in Usdan 104.


Vocal Debauchery auditions are Thursday (9/10) from 6-8 pm in the Music Studios. From Sarah Wolfe ’12:

Do you like acapella? Do you like comedy? Come experience the power of BOTH. COMBINED. IN AN EPIC MANNER.
