Clarksville, TN – Austin Peay State University (APSU) has a lot going on this week from celebrating Constitution Day to getting free acting lessons from a Hollywood veteran, the theme of the week on campus is “Free.”
Austin Peay State University students will have a choice to make on Constitution Day, September 17th: Eat free or live free. The choice pits free food against First Amendment rights.
That choice will happen 11:00am-1:00pm in the Morgan University Center Plaza, where students choosing to enter the fake People’s Republic of Clarksville experience preplanned events that demonstrate what life might be like without First Amendment protections.
If students ask for a specific type of chip, for example, they might not get what they ordered. If they come in with a group of friends, they might not be allowed to sit together. If they have logos on their T-shirts or backpacks, the logos will be covered with tape. If they have a complaint, they have to sit at a table where no one will hear their concerns.
All the rules of the fake country are enforced by student actors form The All State, Wesley Foundation, Governor’s Programming Council and the Military Student Center. The event is sponsored by the departments of Student Publications and Student Life & Engagement.
Veteran film actor Jerry Winsett will lead a masterclass workshop, “Auditioning for the Camera,” at 3:30pm Thursday, September 19th, at Austin Peay State University’s Margaret Fort Trahern Laboratory Theatre. Anyone in the community can watch the workshop for free.
The workshop serves as a masterclass for students in the APSU Department of Theatre and Dance careers class. The students will receive audition lines the day before the workshop, where they’ll perform their audition. Winsett will direct the students through their initial read on the script and show them what it takes to perform a successful and competitive on-camera audition.

The New Gallery, with support from the APSU Center of Excellence for the Creative Arts and the APSU Department of Art + Design, opened its 2019-2020 exhibition season with humanature: new works by Susan Bryant.
