My name is Halle Chambers. For a little over a year now, I have been writing a historical fiction play called “Passage” about Swedish immigration to Minnesota in the late nineteenth century. This semester, I will be presenting a staged reading of my play for theatrical honors. I am currently looking for anyone who might be interested in being a part of the project.
In “Passage,” we follow a small Swedish family from beginning to end of their journey to America. The story mostly centers on the son, Björn, who acts as the main narrator, chronicling the family’s journey in a journal. Many characters are double-cast for effect:
BJÖRN: Son. Early teens. Main Narrator. Also KIM
LYDIA: Mother. Also SOLVEIG
CAROLINA: Daughter. 6-8 years old
KRISTINA: LYDIA’s younger sister. Left Sweden in earlier wave. Lives in Minnesota . Family’s connection in America. Also EMMA
LARS: Good Samaritan. Also DOCTOR/DRAGON
KIM: BJÖRN’s great-grandson. Also BJÖRN
EMMA: KIM’s older cousin and BJÖRN’s great-granddaughter. Also KRISTINA.
SOLVEIG: KIM and EMMA’s grandmother, and BJÖRN’s granddaughter. Also LYDIA
TEACHER: Strict authoritarian educator. Historically, likely male. Also NÄCKEN
NÄCKEN: “male water spirits who played enchanted songs on the violin, luring women and children to drown.’” Also TEACHER
DOCTOR: Helps family in emergency. Also LARS/DRAGON
VOICE: offstage voice. Also reads stage directions
DRAGON: Figure of CAROLINA’s imagination. Also LARS/DOCTOR
Rehearsals start this week, so I will need firm commitment ASAP. This will be a staged reading, and will have less time commitment than a full play, and we will only be presenting the first act. I’m especially interested in anyone who could play the part of LARS, which is a fairly small role in the first act, or who might want to direct the project, as my main focus will be on playwriting. If you are interest, my email is email@example.com

Make a Difference. Educate Through Debate!
Use Your Skills as a judge for the Spanish Debate League
Judge Spanish Debate – No Prior Experience Needed!
The Minnesota Urban Debate League is a nonprofit of Augsburg University. We provide debate programming to over 930 students in Minneapolis and Saint Paul, including our nearly 150 Spanish Debate League students.
We need Spanish-fluent debate judges. We will pay $55 for three rounds of judging, or 1 tournament.
We’re looking for debate judges for 3 Spanish Debate League tournaments this spring:
Wednesday, April 10 | Highland Park High School
Wednesday, April 24 | Roosevelt High School
Wednesday, May 8 | Minneapolis South High School
Judges will observe rounds conducted completely in Spanish, determine winners for each round, and provide comments to help students improve their reading, critical thinking and Spanish language skills.
Participation in debate helps students improve their academic skills, including reading comprehension and critical thinking, and increases their confidence. Be a part of creating these outcomes for our Spanish Debate League students!
