Beginning March 1, doors to most campus facilities will require Gold Card access after 6 p.m. This includes Worner Campus Center, Shove Memorial Chapel, and Tutt Library. Many other campus buildings are already locked after 6 p.m. Tutt Library’s main north and south entrances will remain open to the public until 10 p.m. All other doors will require a Gold Card swipe. When public events are held in these spaces after hours, doors will be unlocked at the request of the event organizer. Alert Campus Safety if you’re hosting an evening event to ensure doors are opened. If you have questions, please contact Campus Safety: (719) 389-6707.

AUDITIONS FOR THE ACCIDENTAL DEATH OF AN ANARCHIST by Dario Fo, directed by Kate Aronson, will take place on Thursday, March 1st and Friday, March 2nd from 3:00 – 5:30 PM. Callbacks will be held on Saturday, March 3rd, starting at 1:00 PM. All auditions will be held in the Norberg Studio, Cornerstone Arts Center.

PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL ROLES ARE OPEN TO ALL GENDERS. Even though the play was originally written to be performed by 5 men and 1 woman, the roles are not gender-specific, so every role will be open to anyone who auditions.

How to prepare for the audition: Read the play. You can find a pdf copy of the play online. This is the version that we’ll be using for the performance, so it’s a great way to become familiar with the play. It is a political satire, and we will be performing in a broad comedic style, so that’s what I’ll be looking for in the auditions.

What to expect at the audition: You will be doing cold readings from the script (I will provide the scenes that you will read), so if you have read the play beforehand, you will likely do much better at the audition. There will be a short information sheet for you to fill out when you arrive for your audition, so please allow time for that by arriving a few minutes early. If you have a resume and/or headshot, please bring it with you, but this is not required.

PLEASE SIGN UP FOR AN AUDITION TIME – there will be a sign-up sheet on Shay’s office door on the second floor of the Cornerstone Arts Center. If you don’t sign up but you still want to audition, you can take your chances by just showing up during the times listed above and wait until there is an opening. Also, if you are unable to make any of the listed audition times, please email me and I will try to find another time for you to audition. Please also email me if you have any questions at karonson@coloradocollege.edu

On Friday, March 2nd at 5:30 in the Interfaith House, J Street U and Hillel will be hosting a debrief of the Combatants for Peace event from last week. You don’t need to have attended the event to come- this will just be a time to have an open dialogue about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, answer any nagging questions you may have, and learn from one another. Shabbat appetizers will be served as well! Hope to see you there.

“Mussolini Speaks: Hollywood and Mussolini (1926-1933). Il Duce’s American Biopic”

“If this country ever needed a Mussolini, it needs one now,” said Senator David Reed during a 1932 address to the American Congress, thus revealing an aspiration for strong political leadership for the United States. In the same year, Jack Cohn, the co-founder of Columbia Pictures, and US radio broadcaster Lowell Thomas, had already been working on Mussolini Speaks (1933), a celebratory biopic that would allow Americans “to see for themselves” what the Italian leader had accomplished in his country. Through the analysis of the documentary itself and of the representations of Mussolini in the American and Italian press and newsreels, this talk will discuss the appeal of the Duce to American audiences.
