Come see Wandering Minds’ first mainstage of the semester: Last Gas by John Cariani October 25-October 27th at 8pm in the Student Theater at Agganis (in the alleyway between Agannis Arena and Fit rec, 3rd door on the left). Tickets are $7 and can be purchased at http://www.lastgas.eventbrite.com or at the door.
Last gas is a play set in the last convenience store in Maine before the Canadian border. Life is pretty dull for the owner, Nat Paradis, until an old flame rolls into town. Suddenly, Nat has a big decision to make for the sake of love, last chances and “getting back to happy.”

Thank you to everyone that came out to audition this week – we were seriously blown away by all of your talent! Below you will find the callback lists for both “Last Gas” and “A Devil Inside”. Keep in mind, if you do not have a callback, that does not necessarily mean you were not cast!
A Devil Inside
Callbacks will be held tomorrow (Thursday, 9/13) from 6-10 pm in 700 Beacon Street, Room 210 (same room as auditions). If you have been called back for either show, please try to arrive as close to 6 pm as possible and be prepared to possibly stay the entire time, although we will do our best to not keep you too late! If you have any conflicts (including callbacks with other groups!), let us know ASAP and we will work with you to make sure you have time to make it to everything.
Break legs, everyone!
Tonight is the last night to audition for our two fabulous main stage shows this semester! They are as follows:
by: John Cariani
Directed by: Lili Tucker
Show dates: October 25-27th
A Devil Inside
by: David Linsay-Abaire
Directed by: Naveen Inim
Show dates: November 29- December 1
Auditions for “Last Gas” will be held Tuesday (9/11) and Wednesday (9/12), and Auditions for “A Devil Inside” will be on Monday (9/10) and Wednesday (9/12). Both auditions will meet in 700 beacon street from 6-9pm.
> You do not need to come all three days, whichever day works for you! If you can only do Monday or Tuesday and the director isn’t there for that play, we can work around that!
> You also do not have to stay for all 4 hours. You only need to be there for the duration of your audition(s).
> Audition sides and forms will be provided to you so you don’t have to prepare anything but yourself and a writing utensil!
> Wandering Minds is a 100% FREE to join club so we will not make you pay any dues to audition or join! We love having new members.
If you have any questions about the audition process or just joining Wandering Minds in general, make sure to stop by our General Meeting on September 9th at 8pm in the Law Auditorium. You can also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Join Wandering Minds for our last (but certainly not least) mainstage production of the year! Directed by Naveen Inim, this production will be going up at the end of April (26-28th) @ 8pm in BU central, located in the basement of the GSU (755 Commonwealth Ave.). Tickets are $7 and can be bought online or at the door.
Milk Milk Lemonade is a coming-of-age story about Emory, an effeminate boy who lives on a farm with his conservative, chain smoking Nanna. She wishes that Emory would get his head out of the clouds and stop choreographing ribbon stick dances with his only friend, a depressed chicken about to be processed. Little does Nanna know that Emory is starting a relationship with the boy down the road. Milk Milk Lemonade tackles themes of death, gender, and sexuality.
