You remember high school. Why not relive it?

Casting Call: “An Eye for an Eye”

From Sarah-Jane Ripa:

Shot in the face and left for dead because of how you might pray. Abandoned by hope, love, and the system. Your attacker convicted and put on Death Row. What would you do?

“An Eye for an Eye” is the story of what one man, placed in these extraordinary circumstances did do: he forgave his attacker, and began a journey that will end when there is a World Without Hate. If you would like to participate in an open reading of the play “An Eye for an Eye” please visit here for audition information.

Sci-Fi Thesis Film Casting Call

From Jake Lane ’12:

I’ll be shooting a senior thesis film in the October. I’m looking to cast a woman in the leading role, but I need a few small but expressive side characters as well, so anyone interested in acting should come in and try out! There’s no need to prepare anything.

The film is a noir-ish science-fiction about a scoundrel struggling to survive in a wretched world, haunted by a past betrayal. There’s sword fighting in it. It should be fun.

The film is meant as a sort of homage to old-school science fiction films. An enthusiasm for pulpy genre films is a plus.

Date: Sunday, Sept. 25
Time: 4pm-7pm
Place: Usdan 114 (Ullian Meeting Room)
