Warren County Public Library Hosts Author Sena Jeter Naslund

  • Location: CEC Parish Hall (next door to the Main Library)
  • Time: 6:00pm
Sena Jeter Naslund will discuss her new book on Thursday, October 10 at 6:00 p.m. at the CEC Parish Hall next door to the Main Library.
In her latest novel, The Fountain Of St. James Court; Or, Portrait Of The artist As An Old Woman, Naslund creates a tale of two worlds: one set in contemporary America and the other rooted in the turbulence of eighteenth-century France. Naslund brings readers two fully realized women of different eras, both of whom struggle to forgive themselves when they fail to balance motherhood, matrimony, and the work that sustains their souls. This novel-within-a-novel transports the reader from an engaging, modern-day Louisville to the historic streets, palaces, countrysides, and homes of France, Italy, and Russia.

With the help of his conjure woman mother, Mammy, and a cast of colorful yet eerie characters, Wiley must trick the Hairy Man three times to defeat him.

Auditions for Curtains

  • Location: GWH - Dance Studio & Room #307
  • Time: 4:00pm - 9:00pm

The audition process will consist of a dance audition, followed by the presentation of a song and monologue.

1.    Have the Audition Information Form  - available in envelopes near the posted audition announcements in FAC 18, GWH 314 and the 3rd floor music dept. - filled out before you arrive, if possible. 

2.    Please be warmed-up and ready to begin promptly at 4:00 p.m.  We will begin teaching the dance combination immediately.  The space will be open by 3:00 for warming up.  Please wear appropriate dance clothes.  No hard sole shoes, sandals, jeans, etc.  If you wish to audition, but can’t be there at 4:00, please speak to the stage manager, Racheal Luther, as soon as possible.

3.    After the dance audition we will listen to your song and monologue.  

o   Songs should be from the musical theatre repertoire, but do not have to be from Curtains.  Have your sheet music ready for the accompanist.  It should be a cut of about 16 to 32 bars, or around 30 seconds.  The start and stop should be clearly marked and not require the piano player to turn pages or dig through pages to follow the music.  No taped accompaniment please.  Please speak to Wayne Pope or your vocal coach if you don’t have a song.  They will try to help you find one.

o   Monologues should be 60 seconds long.  If you do not have a monologue you will be asked to read a short scene from the show with a reader.  Those scenes will be posted shortly before auditions and available at the audition.

 

Performance Dates:  February 27 – March 2, 2013.

 We will have one week less than we usually do to get the show mounted when the spring semester begins.  Consequently, the rehearsal schedule is going to be very tight. Rehearsals will generally be Monday through Friday, and sometimes Sunday, from 7:30 – 11:00 p.m.  There may be some rehearsals beginning this fall semester.  Cast members may also be asked to return shortly before the beginning of the spring semester for rehearsals.  Cast members will need to return from the holiday break memorized.  In total, this production will probably require around 120 hours of rehearsal.

A copy of the script can be read in the Greenrooms, FAC 118 and Gordon Wilson 314.  You are encouraged to do this.

All participants will be eligible and encouraged to enroll in Opera Theatre or Musical Theatre Ensemble for the spring.  These are one-hour credit courses.  There is no additional fee should you go over your semester credit limit by taking Opera Theatre.

Some participants may also be encouraged to enroll in the spring in Styles of Musical Theatre Dance, DANC 318, for two credit hours.

Please speak to Racheal Luther if you have a legitimate conflict and would like to try to schedule an alternative audition time.

Callbacks will be Monday and Tuesday, October 21st and 22nd.

STC Webinar - "Catalysts: Changing the World by Doing Our Jobs"

  • Location: Cherry Hall 15
  • Time: 10:00am - 11:00am

Join Dr. Angela Jones and the Society for Technical Communication (STC) for a members-only webinar:

"Catalysts: Changing the World by Doing Our Jobs"

Presented by Kit Brown-Hoekstra

Tuesday, October 29th from 10:00 - 11:00 a.m. in Cherry Hall 15

As technical communicators, we touch every product, process, and service on this planet (and off of it). Without us, governments would fall, inventors would have a hard time getting their products to users, and patients would die. In short, no product, process, or service would function very well. Yet, because our work is part of the infrastructure, we often don't hear about how we're doing until something goes wrong.

Merriam-Webster’s dictionary defines a catalyst as “an agent that provokes or speeds significant change or action.” During this talk, we will look at different kinds of change and how we, as technical communicators, can influence and change processes to make our world a better place.

If you’re not a STC member, don’t worry. Dr. Jones has you covered! Join her for this educational, professional writing-focused opportunity!
