This Sunday from 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM, Powder & Wig will be hosting a Stage Manager Workshop open to anyone who wants to attend. In the workshop, experienced stage managers Erin Hoover and Emilie Jensen will talk about how to be an efficient stage manager, one of the most vital and complicated roles on any production team. We will go over the responsibilities of a stage manager and the relationship they should have with their director and tech team. The workshop will be held in the Mary Low Basement Lounge.
Also, Fall Auditions are tonight from 4:00-7:00 for The Chairs and R.U.R. They will be held in the Powder & Wig Office in the Mary Low Basement. Callbacks will also be tonight at 8:00.
Come audition, or tell your friends to audition!

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.
