Audition for “The Ash and the Elder”!

Lila Becker ’12, resident G-dawg, writes in to call out to people who wish to participate in the creation of existence. True story.

Come audition for The Ash and The Elder! The play is an adaptation of five creation myths: Norse, Babylonian, Dogon, Quiche Maya, and Melanesian. The show will likely go up sometime in April, date TBA.

Please come with a story to tell us in place of a monologue. Fictional stories are preferred (e.g. tall tale, fairy tale, etc.), but not required. We’ll also ask you to do a cold reading from the script. And if you’d like to show us a special talent (dance, musical instrument, etc.), we’d love that too!

Feel free to email lbecker(at)wesleyan(d0t)edu with any questions, or if you’d like to audition but cannot make those times. We’ll probably hold auditions at the beginning of next semester as well. Click here for the facebook event.

Date: Saturday, December 10th and Sunday, December 11th
Time: 1-2.30pm (Sat), 4-5.30pm (Sun)
Place: Fayerweather Theater Rehearsal Room

Seeking Interviewees for Video Series on the Writing Blog!

So, I tried finding a relevant picture online, but I managed to find Hunter S. Thompson instead. It’s kind of pertinent. I guess.

Tresne Hernandez ’12 and Lila Becker ’12 are looking for students to interview about their writing process and writing at Wesleyan. Anyone is welcome–frosh to senior, international students, any and all writing backgrounds. We’ll ask you some questions and film your responses, and they’ll be posted later this year on the Writing Blog. Email lbecker@wesleyan.edu if you’re interested!
