Ashpet Audition!

Ashpet is an Appalachian Cinderella Story in Two Musical Acts, written and directed by Ruby Ross ’08 and Marika Tabilio (’09)!

“Now, I’m sure you’ve all heard tell of a girl named Cinderella who lost a glass slipper at a ball and wound up with a prince. Well folks, that ain’t no fairytale. Of course, they gussied it up quite a little bit over the years. That glass slipper, for example? Why, it was just a regular ol’ shoe. And that fancy ball – well, we didn’t have nothin’ that extravagant down south in Fort Defiance, Virginia. Not in those days. It was round about the time of the War of Northern Aggression, you see – or as you folks nowadays call it, the Civil War – so times was tough, and the big event of the season wasn’t no ball, but a regular ol’ church meetin’. And that hero of a prince? Well, he was just handsome and charming enough I could see folks getting confused. But he was just a regular ol’ soldier. As for Cinderella herself? Well, the fairytale got her right for the most part – orphan, slave to a mean ol’ woman and her two mean ol’ daughters – that part’s all true. Only in the real story, Cinderella’s name was Ashpet… “

Be prepared to learn a song from the show and do some cold readings and accent play. If you feel more comfortable bringing a prepared monologue, you’re welcome to do so in addition, but in no way feel obligated to–we’re really interested in your interpretation of THIS script. Also, bring your good attitude and flexibility! The show will be the weekend of April 24th, location TBA. (although there is a very slight possibility that it will have to be April 17th if a space does not become available)

Audition times:

Times: Tomorrow, Saturday (2/2) 2-5pm, or Sunday (2/3) 6-8pm
Location: Theater Rehearsal Space, in the basement of Fayerweather (the building with the turrets next to Usdan)

EON is organizing a group of students to attend Powershift 2007, the first national youth conference focused on climate change. The conference will take place at the University of MD, College Park, from Friday, November 2, to Monday, November 5 (Parent’s Weekend).

This conference is HUGE! It is a historical effort to draw attention to climate change, US policy, and youth leadership. Weekend highlights will include workshops, speakers (even Al Gore is among potential speakers!), and opportunities to connect with other students and activists. For more information, check out the event’s website at powershift07.org
