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.

1. You are tasked with representing humanity at the first-ever meeting between humans and aliens. What did you say to make them angry and how will you prevent the invasion?

2. There are plenty of stories out there that talk about somebody making a leap into another world. Lucy stepped through the wardrobe into Narnia, Matthew McConaughey rocketed through a wormhole, and Neo took the red pill. In that spirit, tell us a story about a portal: any portal.

3. Alexander Flemming discovered antibiotics accidentally when he found a mold killing bacteria cultures in his lab. Serendipity has the potential to change our worlds in ways we never anticipated, so tell us a story of a time somebody found something they weren’t looking for.

Submissions are due on November 30, and should be sent to mtmc-coach@mtu.edu. The winners will be awarded fabulous prizes and have their work published in the Lode and on the MTMC website! Happy writing!

He Named me Malala is an intimate portrait of Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Malala Yousafzai, who was targeted by the Taliban and severely wounded by a gunshot when returning home on her school bus in Pakistan’s Swat Valley. The then 15-year-old was singled out, along with her father, for advocating for girls’ education, and the attack on her sparked an outcry from supporters around the world. She miraculously survived and is now a leading campaigner for girls’ education globally as co-founder of the Malala Fund.

National Novel Writing Month: Writing Competition

November is the National Novel Writing Month, and to celebrate the MTMC and the Lode are co-hosting a writing competition. There will be two competitions: a short story competition and a poetry competition. Submissions should be no more than two pages in length, and should address one of the following prompts:

1. You are tasked with representing humanity at the first-ever meeting between humans and aliens. What did you say to make them angry and how will you prevent the invasion?

2. There are plenty of stories out there that talk about somebody making a leap into another world. Lucy stepped through the wardrobe into Narnia, Matthew McConaughey rocketed through a wormhole, and Neo took the red pill. In that spirit, tell us a story about a portal: any portal.

3. Alexander Flemming discovered antibiotics accidentally when he found a mold killing bacteria cultures in his lab. Serendipity has the potential to change our worlds in ways we never anticipated, so tell us a story of a time somebody found something they weren’t looking for.

Submissions are due on November 30, and should be sent to mtmc-coach@mtu.edu. The winners will be awarded fabulous prizes and have their work published in the Lode and on the MTMC website! Happy writing!

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.
