Hi Powder & Wig,
We hope everyone survived the snow and is ready for spring semester! Big news coming down the pipe:
Dead Man’s Cellphone goes up this Friday and Saturday, Feb 6 and 7. Tickets will be on sale in Pulver this week starting on Wednesday and at the door. Show times are 7:30 both nights in Page Commons. Tell everyone you know to come see a Sarah Ruhl show about love. And phones. And the organ market. And… whatever this show is supposed to be about.
Expect a few more emails in the coming week regarding Spring Auditions and One Act submissions!
Powder & Wig Board
We hope you all had a wonderful winter break! For those of you who are abroad, have great time in far off lands, and for those of you returning from abroad, we’re so happy to have you back with us! We have some big things coming up:
Red-Eye Film Festival: This Saturday, January 10th starting at 9:00 AM, we will begin the 24-hour Red Eye Film Festival. You and a group of friends will have 24 hours to write, film and edit a short 10 minute film in a randomly given style. You will likely be given your own camera equipment, but phones will also be sufficient for recording. Here are the rules:
Show up at 9:00 in Runnals Lobby with a group of friends (around 4-6 people). Or, just come alone and find a group when you get there! This will be your Red Eye team.
You will be given a film genre, a location you must use, a prop you must use, and a quote you must include in the film.
You and your team will spend the next 24 hours writing, recording, and putting together your film. Please, try to keep it around 10 minutes long.
Someone from your team must come into Runnals at 9:00 AM the next morning and turn in your film on a flash drive (they will likely be too big to email to us).
The films will all be shown at 7:00 on Sunday night in Lovejoy 100. Awards and prizes will be given out to all the groups, and we’ll see which group had the best movie!
Tell all your friends about it!
The Vagina Monologues: We are now accepting applications for our production of The Vagina Monologues. To all women: if you would like to participate, please fill out this form and and email it to the board by next Tuesday, January 13, by 6:00 PM. The monologues are very low key. You will all be assigned coaches to work with you, and you will be reading your monologues onstage from index cards. Men (and women), if you would like to be a coach, or want more information on what a coach does, please contact the board by email also by next Tuesday.
The Vagina Monologues are Friday, February 13th. We would also like to get a lot of non-P&W members involved, so try to get all your friends to submit.
Thanks for reading all of that! Have a great Jan Plan!
Greetings Powder & Wig!
Welcome back to another year! We hope that you all had fantastic summers, and we can’t wait to start a new year with you guys! Enjoy your classes!
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!
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 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 email@example.com and asking to be put on the mailing list!
