Allbritton Talks: Unpaid Internships

allb_small
Are unpaid internships exploitative, or is free labor a fair trade for a learning experience? Why do businesses and organizations hire unpaid interns, and should students accept these positions? Who wins and loses in a society where unpaid internships are permitted?

We will consider these questions and more over pizza tomorrow at Allbritton Talks, a new conversation series addressing current events, controversial issues, and the enduring questions of public life. If you’ve got a hot-button issue or ethical quandary you’d like to pick apart as a group, send your suggestions to scapron(at)wesleyan(dot)edu.

This series is sponsored by the Allbritton Center for the Study of Public Life.

Date: Friday, January 30
Time: 12:00 – 1:00 PM
Place: Allbritton 311

Gabriel Garzon Montano and Don Froot @ Alpha Delt

a2703049719_10From Nicole Stanton ’15:

Gabriel Garzón-Montano at Alpha Delt this FRIDAY. Gabe has been turning heads in the past year with a unique blend of D’Angelo-like soul grooves carved out with an electronic twist. Listen to his debut release here.

Opening for Gabe & Co. is Don Froot. It’s that infamous student band blending styles from that groovy-latin-record-your-mom-plays-in-the-station-wagon to the jazz you’ve heard in the cafe down the block. Don Froot is that sweet, sweet song that keeps Georgia on your mind. Listen here.

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

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
