WESupport International Students

From Elizabeth Arslanoglou ’16:

Are you an international student? Are you facing difficulties in adapting to classes and social life at WES? Do you feel that your cultural norms are different from those in the US? Do you believe that there are many things you just don’t get here? Do you feel homesick? Do you want a group of people similar to you to talk to?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, join us in our New Mental Health Support Group, specifically focused on International Students. The group will be facilitated by trained students who will also be active participants in the discussion. We will be having weekly friendly conversations about issues that concern us, relative to our transition from other cultures into a US college campus. You are not the only one out there facing “culture shock” so come share your experiences and thoughts!

Date: February 23-May 11
Time: 8-9 PM
Place: Memorial Chapel Meditation Room

 

Film Series: Walkabout

1971. UK/Australia. Dir: Nicolas Roeg. With Jenny Agutter, Luc Roeg. 100 min.

Two young siblings become stranded in the vast Australian Outback, with only an Aboriginal teen on his Walkabout to help them survive. Roeg brings the coming-of-age tale to a striking, kaleidoscopic backdrop, where the sweltering landscape is just as much an object of fascination as the characters who traverse it.

Tonight / 8 p.m. / Goldsmith Family Cinema / Free

Silvernotes Auditions

-1

Samuel Stern ’17 writes in:

Attention Wespeople! Do you sing? Are you able to carry a tune with OR without a bucket? Does the phrase “andante con moto” sound vaguely meaningful to you?

If you’re free between 2 and 4 on Saturday or Sunday, or between 9 and 11 pm on Tuesday the 3rd, come by Exley 139 with a song and any music-reading skills you might have.

Auditions for A Midsummer Night’s Dream

From Tess Jonas ’15:

Audition for Wesleyan’s independently produced, outdoor production of Shakespeare’s A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM!

We are looking for a high-energy cast ready to bring some Shakespeare in the Park to Wes! No experience necessary, just a desire to perform and maybe act like an ass… (see what we did there?!)

Audition Dates:
Friday January 30 – 3-7PM – Jones Room
Saturday January 31 – 1-5PM – Jones Room
Callbacks will be Sunday February 1.

Please prepare ANYTHING that excites you! We want you to bring something that you’re comfortable with so that you aren’t reading off of a piece of paper.

Audition for Into the Woods

10929024_10206100240892149_37340662382810883_n

From Nola Werlinich ’17:

I wish, more than anything… that you’ll COME AUDITION FOR INTO THE WOODS!

Into the Woods is a musical about a childless baker and his wife who encounter a witch (your chance to share a role with Meryl Streep), while fairy tale characters learn to deal with the consequences of their wishes. A little movie adaptation was recently released… you might have heard of it. The stage version is way better, though. Ask anyone. (Except maybe Meryl.)

Performances are April 23rd, 24th and 25th.

Auditions will be:
Friday 1/30 from 5:30-9:30 in the Usdan Multi Purpose Room (B25)
Saturday 1/31 from 2:00-5:00 in the East Room
