Stilt-Walkers Needed

At some point, destiny calls everybody. It doesn’t matter who you are, what you do, or what you said that one time when you were piss-drunk on Fountain. At some point, it comes for you.

And if you know how to walk on stilts, and I mean really hold yourself well on those long wooden poles, this is your moment. This is for you.

From Lila Becker ’12:

I’m looking for anyone who knows how to stilt-walk and would feel comfortable teaching a newcomer. It’s for a production that will go up in April. Stilts will be provided.

Interested parties should email lbecker(at)wesleyan(dot)edu.

Heed the call.

“Do you just love Theater Tech???” – An appeal

Last night the Old Spice guy walked in on my dreams. He told me he had side adventures all the time, and he needed a sidekick. And I was like, ohhhh shiiitt. And he was like, yeaahhhhhh. And then we shot off into space on a rainbow made of twizzler’s and Emma Watson’s Brown ID card. And then I woke up. And then I was like, ugh, I shouldn’t work so hard.

On a completely unrelated note, Tess Minter ’12 calls in to beg:


Come help us out!!

DOG SEES GOD needs a sound designer, some help with carpentry and painting, as well as someone to operate the sound and light board.
If you’re interested please let me know by email at tminter(at)wesleyan(dot)edu.

The show goes up Oct 6, 7 & 8 which is really soon, so we’re going to need as much help as we can get.

Come play with us!

Will you heed the call?
