Rocky Horror Picture Show Auditions

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 in Fisk 302
Monday, Feb 15 from 8:30-10
Wednesday, Feb 17 from 7-9

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

Mass Incarceration Spring Break Lobby Weekend Info Session

From Caroline Monahan ’16:

This spring break, work to end mass incarceration.

Come to 41 Wyllys Room 113 for an info session on a Wesleyan lobbying trip to DC from March 12-15. On this trip led by Wes for Peace, we’ll lobby our Congress members with over 200 other college students on the Sentencing Reforms and Corrections Act of 2015 (http://fcnl.org/events/slw/FCNL_SentAct2015_Sum.pdf).

Come lobby with us. Tell your representatives to make the right choice about mass incarceration. Come find out more at our info session, or email cmonahan[at]wesleyan[dot]edu if you can’t make it.

“We could choose to be a nation that extends care, compassion, and concern to those who are locked up and locked out or headed for prison before they are old enough to vote. We could seek for them the same opportunities we seek for our own children; we could treat them like one of “us.” We could do that. Or we can choose to be a nation that shames and blames its most vulnerable, affixes badges of dishonor upon them at young ages, and then relegates them to a permanent second-class status for life.”
— Michelle Alexander, The New Jim Crow

Time: 8:00 – 9:00 PM

Light of the East—The Beauty of Movement in Silence

PSA from the College of East Asian Studies:

Prominent Korean digital artists Youngho Kim and Jisong Lee examine
the “beauty of movement in silence” through photography and video in
their first exhibition outside Korea. Both artists build on their long
careers in fashion and commercial work to create works that examine
the core principals hiding behind what we see, and provide an opening
to re-explore, in a contemporary light, the topic of whether the world
that we are living in is a dream.

Date: Wednesday, February 3rd – Sunday, May 22nd
Time: 12:00 PM- 4:00 PM
Place: College of East Asian Studies Gallery
