…And so continues another Wesleyan tradition:
Every year, a bunch of schwasty Wesleyan students perform the raunchiest and most raucous show you have ever seen, complete with up-to-the-date Wesleyan jokes and parodies of pop music from this year and the last.
Tonight, the performance is in the Westco Café. You will be provided marshmallows to throw at the actors, five of whom will be playing Michael Roth at some point throughout.
The performance will only last 30-45 minutes, so get to the “theater” early!
Date: Tonight, May 10
Time: 10:00 p.m.
Place: WestCo Cafe
Come see the rootin’est, tootin’est show of the year, the Wesleyan Melodrama: The Financial Follies of Foss Flats!
Who stole the gold from Endowment Mine? It’s the question on everyone’s mind. Come by the Nic Lounge this Friday and Saturday and find out the answer!
See cowboys be courageous, damsels be distressed, and Wesleyan be Wesatirized!
Two shows a night! Be there, y’all.
Friday, May 1st, at 8pm and 10pm
Saturday, May 2nd, at 9pm and 11pm

I had trouble reading through all these apostrophes, but if you have ever wanted to be a cowperson it will probably make more sense to you:
To anyone who ever wanted to be a cowperson:
There’s this show called the Wesleyan Melodrama that’s been goin’ up ev’ry year now fer a few years an’ it’s this big ol’ musical about evil villains, true romance, brave heroes…and it all takes place in the Wild Wild West(…leyan)! It’s a crazy ol’ show about wesleyan but with sheriffs and criminals and saloons and singin’ and marshmallows. Lotsa flyin’ marshmallows.
Auditions for ye ole Annual Wesleyan Melodrama are this Friday from 4:30-6:30pm and Saturday from 3:00-6:00pm! Come on down to the MPR of Usdan for five minutes or so and show us somethin’ mighty fancy. Bring a song of your choice to sing a capella. Don’t worry, you don’t have to be a great singer, just comfortable with singing. If you are a great singer, that’s welcome, too. We’ll also be giving you a cold reading to do. Feel free to share any special talents/skills/cowboy accents. We look forward to seeing you there!
