Students, community invited to dance audition
Actors, singers, dancers and even non-dancers alike are invited to audition at 7 p.m., Jan. 26 in Bruder Theater in King Hall for the spring dance show presented by the theater department.
“The Eleven O’Clock Club” was created by Lindy Bartruff, dance instructor and choreographer, and features roles for actors ages 14 to 60.
The show tells the story of a diverse group of performers who gather at Picture Lake, a retreat launched in 1927 by seven Hollywood chorus girls. Bartruff describes her production as Broadway meets “A Chorus Line” meets Hollywood meets “Glee.” A total cast of 20 is needed for the show.
Dance styles include ballet, jazz, tap, contemporary and styles from the 1920s to 1980s. There also are two production numbers for non-dancers. The show includes three songs. “It Don’t Get Better Than This” from “Urban Cowboy” is for a tenor. “Omigod, You Guys” from “Legally Blonde” is for a second soprano-alto. “Gimme Gimme” from “Thoroughly Modern Millie” has a range from second soprano to first soprano.
Auditioners should be dressed to move and plan to arrive at 6:30 p.m. to fill out audition forms. All schedule conflicts must be listed at that time. Headshots and resumes are optional. Photos will be taken at the audition. Selected individuals will sing, and music will be provided.

Radio club to ‘get on air’
The recently established Amateur Radio Club will host a Get-On-The Air event at 4:30 p.m. next Thursday just outside Science Hall 301.
The club invites students to come try their hand at ham radio or simply listen. They will have both voice and digital communications capabilities. The FCC has dropped the requirement for Morse Code and so it is much easier to obtain an amateur radio license than in the past, according to a Buzz-In announcement sent Tuesday afternoon.
For more information contact Max McCoy at email@example.com or Dwight Moore at firstname.lastname@example.org.
