The inimitable Ben Goldberg ’17 writes in for all u actors:
Come audition for Matt Shelley-Reade‘s senior thesis film DRIVE MANNY DRIVE
An uninspired voyeur stuck in suburbia. A driver’s test instructor out to get him. An overzealous father. And a sports car just waiting for him to pass his test. What would it look if you couldn’t pass your driver’s test to save the life of you and what if you had the same instructor every time? This short film tells a coming of age story of a young boy facing his own anxiety.

WEDNESDAY, 9/28: 5pm-7pm in Usdan 110

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!

“Calendar Year” explores the domestic, romantic and quietly dramatic lives of a couple living together over the course of a year.
Jodie and Peter have been together a while. Through the series, we witness their intimate conversations, little revelations and maybe gain some insight into what it means to be “together.”
Sides will be provided and everyone is welcome regardless of experience.

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 answered “yes” to any of those, read on: the Silvernotes, currently Wesleyan’s newest acapella group, are holding auditions! 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. If you’re not free at any of those times and still want to audition (especially if you’re a tenor or bass; we need that low range) then email sastern[at]wesleyan[dot]edu and we’ll see what we can do.
Dates and times:
Saturday, January 31st: 2:00pm – 4:00pm
Sunday, February 1st: 2:00pm – 4:00pm
Tuesday, February 3rd: 9:00pm – 11:00pm
