The International Students Association is looking for someone to write the script for the fall semester’s Ethnos show.
ISA strives to share its members’ unique culture backgrounds. Through events like Ethnos and International Pancake Night, ISA invites everyone to learn about different cultures. Officers and students in ISA also come together for Chapel meetings every Thursday.
Adrian Patenaude, junior Ad/PR major from Phrae, Thailand and ISA officer, wrote the “Culture Shock” script for last year’s Ethnos show.
“This year, we really raised the bar for Ethnos, so we hope to keep that same standard and keep getting better this next year,” Patenaude said.
Jeremy Foo, senior Ad/PR and political science major from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and president of ISA, wants next year’s “Ethnos” show to be more successful than last year’s.
“My goal next year is to sell out at all three shows,” Foo said.
With the “Culture Shock” theme last year, Ethnos got a lot of attention. Patenaude will be in a different role for next year’s show.
“I’ll be the PR officer for ISA next year, so I’ll be heavily involved in the production as well as the promotion of the show,” Patenaude said.
ISA is targeting English majors or other people who have strong writing skills and a sense of creating a storyline. Foo believes the continuous storyline from last year attracted the large audience.
“In the past, we have found writers through word of mouth, but we thought it would be better to cast a wider net this time,” Patenaude said. “Writing Ethnos is super fun and great writing experience. You get to be in charge of the theme for the entire show.”
ISA hopes to find a scriptwriter in the next few weeks.
Patenaude said two people have expressed interest in writing the script recently.
