Rocky Horror Picture Show Auditions

Some time-warpin’ news from Lucy Rubin ’17:

Amazing costumes?? Dance with friends? Watch an amazing(ly bad) movie? If yes, then Absent Toast, Wesleyan’s only (and sexiest) Rocky Horror Shadowcast, is where you should be! The show is a low time commitment, once a week rehearsals, and one show on the last days of classes at midnight!

Auditions? Super low key. Just show up with some attitude!
Auditions are
Monday, February 13th from 7:30-9 @ Exley 150
Tuesday, February 14th from 7:30-9 @ Exley 150

Each audition shouldn’t take that long. Come by, feel the vibe, makes some friends, looking bangin in a corset.
