What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.
November 3, 2004 The Arts The Wescolite Student Newspaper Ten Minute Plays Scheduled, Drama Club Branches Off By Travis Crismore The UM-Westem's Play Production class is putting on the second an nual Ten Minute Play Marathon on November 14-17. There will be twelve plays performed through the first three nights. The starting time each night is 7:33 pm in the Small Auditorium (Main Hall 314). The plays will be directed by the students in Larry Brazill's Play Pro duction class. Each night the audience will vote for their favorite play, and on the fourth night the plays picked by the audience will be performed again. The play with the most votes will be awarded best play of the marathon. Tickets cost five dollars and will get you in all four nights. There will also be door prizes awarded every night. Some of the actors and directors are really fired up for this event. “It’s sure to be a good time,” said Scott Calhoun, one of the directors. Dino Pagano another director said, “It’s exciting to be a part of a group of talented new directors with some en tertaining material.” “It’s a challenge for the student ac tors and an eye-opener for the audi ence,” claims Scott Gebert, an actor in the marathon. Larry Brazill, the instructor, is also very excited to put on the Ten Minute Play Marathon. “I think this is a per fect example of experiential learning. I am always amazed at the quality prod uct produced by student directors. I believe it is because they take owner ship of their work. It’s a true testament to the creativity of Western students.” Who's Line is it Anyway? Improv Club, a branch of the drama club at UM-Westem, meets every Mon day night at 8:00 pm in the Small Audi torium in Main Hall. Larry Brazill leads up the meetings with many games and warm-up exer cises that really get the mind going and they also help open students up to public performance without worrying about what everyone else is thinking about them. If you’ve seen the popular television show, “Who’s Line Is It Anyway?” then you can get the idea of the types of acting exercises the club does. The great thing about Improv Club is the sponta neity of the exercises, and that there is no experience needed. All that is needed is an open mind, willing spirit, and an eagerness to play. One need not be a serious person to come and have some Mitchell Drug One Hour Photo fun. It gives members a chance to tap into their creative genius. The club is always looking for new members to join. Anyone interested can show up on Monday night and give it a try. The long term goals of the club are to get the ability to book perfor mances downtown for live audiences. Members can be as active as they like and only have to do as much as they are comfortable with. So come on up and give it a try! It's sure to be a fun time for all. -LADY DAWGS- Shop the Knock About for ‘ Silver Jeans ‘ Hats, Scarves & Jewelry Pick up a Denim Card and save 20% on jeans Dinock <J?lbout ¿fashion Clothes <Sz J Accessories 4 S.
