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

Calling All Artists of Varying Degrees

unnamed-1From the ever raucous Rachel Day ’16:

On FEBRUARY 7TH, Art House is hosting a Wesleyan artists’ fair.
Whether you have two zines or twenty paintings that you would like to contribute, we would love to present your work. Our hope is that artists will gain exposure and connect with others on campus.

contact Rachel Day at rday[at]wesleyan[dot]edu (or any other Art House resident) by FEBRUARY 3RD to submit.
please include descriptions and the amount of your work – anything will be accepted, whether it’s figure drawings, photographs, socks, postcards, etc etc.

———————————————–

Art work and crafts will be for sale – this does not necessarily mean monetary, however. Artists will set their own prices; whether their drawing sells for $10, two dinners, a print in return, or any other form of trade is up to them.

Full House will be providing refreshments, Music House will be providing live music, so come and hang! The event will run from 1-5 pm on Saturday, February 7th.

A percentage of each sale, proceeds from the refreshments, and a “pay what you want” at-the-door fee will all be donated to Green Street Art Center in Middletown.

Check out the Facebook event.

Date: Feb 7th
Time: 1-5pm Saturday

Audition for In the Penal Colony

Miranda Haymon ’16 writes in:

PENAL COLONY: a settlement used to exile prisoners and separate them from the general populace by placing them in a remote location, often an island or distant colonial territory.

“In the Penal Colony” (oder “In der Strafkolonie” auf Deutsch) is a short story by Franz Kafka. The story is set in an unnamed penal colony. “In the Penal Colony” describes the last use of an elaborate torture and execution device that carves the sentence of the condemned prisoner on his skin before letting him die, all in the course of twelve hours.

More information can be found on the Facebook event.

Date: Thursday, January 29
Time: 6-7 PM
Place: Theater Studio
