EVENTS

London Center Study Abroad: Come and spend an entire semester in London with Professor George Nelson. Professor Nelson is directing the London Center Winter Study Abroad for the Winter Semester 2019. He would like to invite you to come and study Musical Theatre history and get your History of Civ 201 and 202 courses taken care for in London when the queues are short and you can basically own the city. Come and see West End shows for as little as 15 GBP’s. Living in the London Center is amazing and we’ll be traveling throughout England and France for an entire semester. If you have questions email him at george_nelson@byu.edu.

Additionally, Professor Megan Sanborn Jones will be directing the London Theatre Spring Study Abroad in the Spring Term 2019. Be sure to take advantage of these great opportunities to study in London next year!

AUDITIONS IN THE AREA

**Stage Manager Opportunity**
Lincoln Academy Junior High in Pleasant Grove is looking to hire a stage manager to work on their fall musical, Peter Pan Jr.
Auditions, callbacks and rehearsals will be held during the week on Tuesdays- Thursdays with alternating Fridays from 2:45-5:00pm. The stage manager will be needed from August 24th until November 17th.
Because this is a junior high school production, we are looking for someone who is not only ready to tackle the everyday ins and outs of stage managing but is also excited to work with junior high students and their parents.

West Side Theatre 
Adapted from the 1935 movie directed by Alfred Hitchcock, The 39 Steps tells the story of an everyman civilian in London name Richard Hannay, who becomes caught up in preventing an organization of spies called the 39 Steps from stealing British military secrets. Mistakenly accused of the murder of a counter-espionage agent, Hannay goes on the run to Scotland with an attractive woman in the hopes of stopping the spy ring and clearing his name. The catch? The play’s concept calls for every character to be performed amongst a cast of four! Come audition for this zany and wonderfully fun production! Auditions are August 17th from 6 PM to 9 PM in the Smith’s community room located in Smith’s in Saratoga Springs (689 Redwood Road, Saratoga Springs, UT 84045). The community room is on the North side of the store by the pharmacy. Callbacks will be held by invitation only on Saturday August 17th.
