Public Auditions for the Classic Musical West Side Story

Michigan Tech’s “Tech Theatre Company” will hold public auditions for the classic musical West Side Story, next week, on Monday, January 16 – Wednesday, January 18. West Side Story changed the very nature of American Musical Theatre. With music by Leonard Bernstein and lyrics by a young Stephen Sondheim, the play was grounded in a distinctively “modern” sound.   Arthur Laurents’ book is inspired by Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, where two young lovers cross the boundaries of an urban battlefield, questioning the cultural isolation that will allow them to live happily in a special place.   A place where everyone can grow beyond the confines of hate, poverty, and violence. Parts are available for singers and dancers, and a small number of non-singing roles.  The first night, Monday, auditions will be from 7:00 – 10:00 pm  (SINGING/DANCING/CHORUS ROLES); on Tuesday, January 17, 7:00 – 10:00 pm (NON-SINGING ROLE AUDITIONS ONLY); and on Wednesday, January 18, 7:00 – 10:00 pm(SINGING/DANCING/CHORUS ROLES).  Auditions will be held the Rozsa Center, in room 120 (Choir Room). To register, please visit the WEBSITE to fill out the AUDITION REGISTRATION FORM.

To be assigned an audition slot, you must fill out a registration form!  Fill out the Audition Form immediately.  Slots are limited so please help us by registering in advance.

For more details please see the attached press release, or email Trish Helsel at  helsel@mtu.edu with further questions.

Speaker and Author Aspen Matis

Mark your calendar to attend speaker and author Aspen Matis on Wednesday, April 5, 2017 at 8:00pm in Fisher Hall, Room 135. Aspen is the author of the internationally bestselling memoir Girl in the Woods, published by HarperCollins in 2015. The book has been called “a powerful read” by O, The Oprah Magazine, and it made The Guardian’s annual top 50 list. The New York Times named Aspen Matis “a hero.” After being raped on her second night at college, Matis dropped out. Depressed and shocked that her school didn’t believe and protect her, she sought solace in a remote wilderness; she found the Pacific Crest Trail and hiked the footpath’s entire length, over 2,000 miles from Mexico to Canada. www.aspen-matis.com A book signing will take place after the event.

This event is sponsored by the Office of the President, Institutional Equity and Inclusion, and Student Affairs and Advancement, Visiting Women & Minority Lecturer/Scholar Series, and the SAVE student organization.
If you have a question about this event, please contact Beth Lunde-Stockero, Title IX Coordinator, at titleix@mtu.edu.

Tech Theatre Explores the Life of Astronomer Henrietta Leavitt in “Silent Sky”

“Silent Sky,” a new play by Lauren Gundeson, tells the story of astronomer Henrietta Swan Leavitt. The play blends the discovery of how to measure the universe with the essence of the discoverer’s life story.  Set against the turmoil of the cry for social justice at the beginning of the 20th century, the chronicle of Henrietta Leavitt counterpoints the power of a passion for work with the desire for love and family. Please join Tech Theatre for a play that contemplates the life, challenges, and contributions to our understanding of the universe. Ms. Leavitt discovered the first way of measuring the universe, to demonstrate that heavens were larger than the Milky Way, the limit of creation in her day.  Tech Theatre Presents “Silent Sky,” for two weeks, Thursday – Saturday, October 13 – 15 and 20 – 22, in the McArdle Theatre, at 7:30 PM each night.

Attention Student Organization Officer: Funding Opportunity

Cummins, Inc. is offering your student organization the chance to receive funding!  In order to qualify for the funding, Cummins would like each student organization to create a 10-15 minute video presentation based on the template, Cummins Sponsorship Event 2016.  The presentation video needs to be made and submitted to Joe Thompson (josephth@mtu.edu) in the Pavlis Honors College by Friday, November 4th at 12:00 PM.  Cummins representatives will review the video presentations and award funding a few weeks after submission.

Over $5,000 in funds was distributed last year and we anticipate a similar amount available this year.  Based on feedback from last year, a successful presentation is concise but still provides suitable justification for each bulleted item in the presentation template.
