Five College Early Music Painless Auditions The Five College Early Music Program welcomes students, faculty, and community members interested in auditioning to perform in one or more ensembles. The auditions are “"painless" experiences, held at all the campuses. Performances sponsored by the program feature baroque and Renaissance music played on modern and period instruments and sung in historically informed style. We also offer lessons on historical instruments. Come and talk to us! Room 210, *Pratt Hall, 1–4 pm.

Auditions for Venus Written by Pulizer Prize winner and MHC alumna Suzan-Lori Parks and directed by Julia Whitworth, Venus is based on the true story of Saartjie Baartman, a southern African woman who was lured to Europe in 1810 and exhibited nude in a London circus on account of her (purportedly) sizeable posterior. Her keepers renamed her the “Hottentot Venus.” In Venus, Parks deconstructs the act of viewing itself in order to examine racist and sexist acts of objectification and stereotyping. The play's deliberately ironic tone and considerable humor create a disturbing and thought-provoking political vaudeville. The play will be cast according to principles of diversity and multiculturalism. People of all races, ethnicities, genders, ages, and physical disabilities are welcome to audition, irregardless of formal theatre experience. There are roles for 2–-6 men and 6–-10 women. Callbacks will be 9/12, 1–-5:30 pm. Performances are November 3–-7. Contact Julia Whitworth at or x2658 for more information. Rooke Theatre, 6–-10 pm.

Kabbalat Shabbat Service *Abbey Interfaith Sanctuary, 6:30 pm.

Auditions for Falling Bodies This play, written by Mary Jo Salter and directed by Holger Teschke, tells the story of English poet John Milton's 1638 visit to the blind physicist Galileo Galilei. The famous astronomer is under house arrest near Florence, having been found guilty of heresy for defending a Copernican view of the universe. The play and its characters move in and out of history, exploring time and space, blindness and seeing, art and science, and the price of cosmic ambition. There are roles for 5 men and 12 women, dancers, and musicians. Callbacks will be 9/12, 10–-2 pm. Performances are November 18–-21. McCulloch Auditorium, *Pratt Hall, 7 pm.
