Theater Auditions for Nov Performances

Metropolitan State University’s Theater department together with Theater Underground, will develop and premiere an original play by Metropolitan State theater student, Sarah Dewhirst. 

Directed by David Hanzal, My Soul, and Other Broken Things traces the coming-of-age of Sephora, a young woman who, guided by a mysterious stranger, returns to her Christian fundamentalist home in search of her estranged mother. Sephora has been living a life that is repugnant to her family and everything that they believe. Sephora takes us with her on a journey that plumbs the darkest depths of the human soul, asking the ever-present question: “Is there a God?”

AUDITIONS WILL BE:
Wednesday, September 3 from 4-6 P.M. 
Thursday, September 4 from 6-8 P.M.

Auditions will take place at MCTC’s Minneapolis campus in the Whitney Fine Arts Center’s Stagedoor Theatre located at 1424 Yale Place. General auditions will consist of cold readings and some improvisatory movement work; performers will be seen individually for approximately 10 minutes on a first come, first served basis. Please wear comfortable clothing for physical movement. If you are a theater major, please bring a headshot & resume. 
Auditions are open to all students & participation on & off-stage is eligible for upper division credit.

Callbacks will be on Friday, September 5 from 6-9 P.M.

Rehearsals will begin in early September, with performances on November 6, 7, and 8 at 7 P.M. and November 8 at 2 P.M. at the Stagedoor.

For more information, please contact director David Hanzal at: david.hanzal@metrostate.edu

Original student play--My Soul, and Other Broken Things to premiere November 6, 2014 at Metropolitan State’s Minneapolis Stagedoor Theatre.

"How do you know what's going on between God and me? You only know what you think you see or hear or read in a dusty old book. And you’re completely holed up in the idea that the world is black and cold and evil. Like the only way to survive this place is to hide in some special bubble of God’s light. Why won’t you let me find my own way?" —Sephora

Metropolitan State graduate student Lisa Ghylin was selected by the MN American Legion to raise the flag at Target Field for the Minnesota Twins’ American Legion Day on June 7, 2014.

Ghylin, a member of the MN American Legion’s public relations committee, has been active in the Legion since 2010.

Ghylin served over 8 years in the Army as a technical writer and intelligence specialist, writing editing over 2,000 intelligence reports per year.

Ghylin attended Blaine High School in Blain, MN, graduating in the spring of 2001. She left for basic training in Fort Jackson, SC on Sept. 17, 2001, as soon as the planes could fly after the 9/11 attacks. After training, Ghylin attended the Defense Language Institute in Monterey, CA to learn Arabic.

Ghylin was permanently stationed in Ft. Gordon, GA where she spent her last four years on active duty. While there, she traveled to Ethiopia for her first deployment. Ghylin was brought home early to attend interrogator training, after which she was deployed to Afghanistan for a year.

Released from active duty six months after her original Expiration of Time and Service (ETS) date, Ghylin returned home and signed on with the MN National Guard in the "Try One" program. She served with the guard for two years, serving through March 2010.
Ghylin received her bachelor’s degree in Individualized Studies from Metropolitan State University in 2012 while serving as president of the Metropolitan State Veterans Network, a student organization, as a student worker in the Veteran’s Office, and as an intern in the university’s Admissions Office.

She is continuing her studies at Metropolitan State by pursuing a master’s in Technical Communications.
