Welcome back!

Welcome back Wiggians!

I hope all of you have had wonderful summers! We are gearing up for another incredible year at Colby with Powder and Wig!

First up, our One Week Musical is almost here! This year’s show will be Kiss Me Kate, Cole Porter’s Tony-winning musical comedy. Auditions will be September 3rd. More information can be found here.

On Monday September 15, we will be hosting Milk and Cookies, where we will introduce the rest of the season and (you guessed it) have some delicious milk and cookies!

Right after that, we will have the Fall auditions for The Chairs and R.U.R. 

Make sure to look for us at the club fair and make sure you are on the email list if you aren’t already!

Welcome Class of 2018!

Welcome from Powder and Wig!


Do you like acting? Directing? Building sets? Just theater in general? Powder and Wig is Colby’s student-run theater club. Our upcoming season includes 7 full productions along with several other events, like a One Act festival and a 24-hour film festival. Everything we do is done entirely by students, from directing the shows to building the sets to acting. There are opportunities for everyone – techies, actors, you name it – and no experience is necessary to participate!


Our first show is the One Week Musical, Kiss Me Kate, and auditions will be the first day of classes (check out the links below for more info on that). We’re welcoming anyone interested to join in the fun! True to its name, the performances will be the next week, on Sunday, September 14th.


If you are interested in more information, check out our website (web.colby.edu/powderandwig/) or our Facebook page for more information! You can also sign up for our newsletter to find out about upcoming opportunities by emailing powderandwig.board@gmail.com and asking to be put on the mailing list!
