French Hall Looking for Performers

Good news: you don’t have to speak a word of French to get involved with a spiffy opportunity brought to you by French Hall. From Alicia Gansley ’15:

French Hall will be having an event on October 17th to benefit Shining Hope for Communities. We are looking for performers of any kind for the event. It would be a great help to us and it’s for an amazing cause. No need for your performance to be related to French at all, but that would be a plus (Times are flexible; if you have any interest at all please shoot me an email and we’ll work something out!).

Please email agansley(at)wesleyan(dot)edu if you or your group is interested.

Contact: agansley(at)wesleyan(dot)edu
Deadline: ASAP (event is on Wednesday, October 17)
