TA Announcement

Last weekend, we had the pleasure of announcing your Technical Advisor for the 2014-2015 season. Congratulations to Camille Arvisu, your new TA! The new board is finally complete! We cannot wait to see where you all lead Troupe in the future. Congratulations and best of luck baby board!

 

Troupe Videographer

With our current videographer taking over as the secretary elect, Troupe is in the market for a new videographer. You will have a brand new Troupe camera to record with and it’s a great way to take on a little more responsibility and get more involved with Troupe. Plus you get free tickets to all the shows! Talk about perks, am I right? If you have any questions or are interested in the position please contact Kyle at kptague@bu.edu!

 

That’s all for now friends. Cheers to a great year, now let’s party!

 

 

GM 4 Recap and Reminders!

Good morning Troupe!

We hope you are all enjoying the end of your semesters now that our mainstage season has concluded. Speaking of which, CONGRATULATIONS on a spectacular season! We began with a bang as Doubt, A Parable raised money for Prevent Child Abuse America, and Raised in Captivity, Rope, and Twelfth Night, Or What You Will all had amazing runs as well, rounding out our mainstage season beautifully. We are always awed by the work that you do membership, we hope that you had fun and are as proud of this spring season as we are.

A few more congratulations are in order as we welcome the new Stage Troupe Executive Board 2014-2015:

President, Abi Oshins

Vice President, Eli Brenna

Vice President of Special Projects, Celia Gibson

Treasurer, Joe Gambino

Secretary, Kyle Tague

Congratulations baby board. The Troupe of Tomorrow (tomorrow, tomorrow) is now in your capable hands and we can’t wait to see what this next year will bring. Best of luck and have a great year!

As you can see, one member of next year’s board is not listed above. We would like to thank all those who applied to be the Technical Advisor for the 2014-2015 academic year. The TA will be announced and approved at the final GM of the spring this weekend! But, before the GM we have just a bit more fun in store.

Our mainstage season may be over, but fortunately, we are far from done! We have so many special projects and important events coming your way, so join us and end your year with Troupe!

 

One Acts

Jacob Sleeper Auditorium at 8PM

Admission is completely FREE so bring everyone you know, RSVP on Facebook and support your fellow talented Troupies!

 

 

Space Cleaning

April 26

The Space at 12PM

 

Everyone’s favorite event of the semester (am I right?)! It’s the time when we all get together, hang out, get covered in saw dust, have sing alongs, and make the space beautiful once again. Plus, you get to throw out all that stuff we own that, let’s be honest, we all know needs to go. Sound good to you? Great! Join us for an hour or few at space cleaning this weekend!

(Every show MUST have a minimum of 40 hours in order to qualify for BUSTies!)

 

Final GM of the Spring Season

April 27

The Student Theater at 7PM

It’s our final meeting of the year. Join us as we reminisce about the memories we made and the fun we had AND as we announce the TA for next year and vote for BUSTies of the spring!

 

BUSTies

May 1

Photonics: The Colloquim Room at 6:30PM

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. But actually. Join us for our annual awards ceremony as we celebrate all things Troupe, the graduating class, and the great things our membership accomplished this year!

Tickets for BUSTies will be purchased on Evenbrite, the link to which will be posted on the Facebook event, coming to you soon!

 

Well, that concludes our 2013-2014 academic year, another great one for Troupe history. The good news is, it was wonderful, but the better news is that even in the summer Troupe has opportunities for you to continue to do theatre, and try and learn new things!

Announcements

Troupe needs a videographer!

Our wonderful videographer has done a great job of recording Troupe history this year, but he will be trading in his duties for secretarial ones next year- which means we’re looking for someone to fill his shoes! This position is completely voluntary, but is a great way to take on a little more responsibility and get further involved in Troupe! If you are interested or have any questions, feel free to email Kyle at kptague@bu.edu.

 

Welllll, that’s all for now. Have a great weekend! Enjoy the celebration today, but stay smart and safe! See you all soon!

Flash Back to the 80s with Troupe- Twelfth Night Opens Tonight!

Good Evening Troupe and beyond!

Image

Well, it’s a new week, and that means it’s time for a new show! So journey  along with Stage Troupe as we go back in time to the 1980s for a totally fantastic time and a really rad show because

William Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, Or What You will opens tonight!

Twelfth Night, or What You Will is one of Shakespeare’s most delightfully topsy-turvy comedies about mixed identities, shipwrecks, love triangles, and some serious tom-foolery. The story starts when Viola and Sebastien, twin brother and sister, are beached on the foreign land of Illyria, each thinking the other is dead. Lost and without prospects, Viola disguises herself as a man named Cesario and begins serving the local Duke, Orsino. In love with the neighboring Lady Olivia, the Duke enlists the help of Cesario/Viola to woo her for him. Inconveniently, Olivia falls in love with Viola, who’s even more inconveniently in love with Orsino. What ensues is a complicated love triangle that’s made even more outrageous by the less than noble suitors in line to win Olivia for themselves. Add in a spunky maid, ridiculous manservant, and drunk uncle to make an interesting scene for Viola’s previously-presumed-dead twin brother to find when he enters the scene and complicates things further. Finally, after some false accusations and a few drinks, the play ends happily with three weddings and a musical number sung by none other than Feste, the fool.

Get ROPEd in with Troupe this weekend!

Good evening Troupies and friends!

Hope you enjoyed the week off because we’ve got a whole lotta Troupe headed your way…

And first up, ROPE opens this weekend!

Image

Made famous by Alfred Hitchock’s 1948 film adaptation, Patrick Hamilton’s Rope is a murder mystery told in reverse: the killers, their victim, and their motivations are immediately revealed to the audience. Brandon and Charlie are two undergraduates who, inspired by the musings of Friedrich Nietzsche, kill a fellow classmate for the sheer thrill of it; they feel they are intellectually superior to the feeble-minded and capable of pulling off the perfect murder. What follows is a most macabre dinner party attended by the victim’s friends and family in which the guests dine upon a chest containing the cadaver. As the night wears on, the resolve of the murderers begins to crack, and the underlying flaws in their intellect reveal their true ugliness and become their undoing. A classic suspense thriller, Rope casts a damning light on the disturbed resolve of men who feel it appropriate to kill merely for the sake of killing.

The first mainstage of the Spring 2014 season: Raised in Captivity opens this weekend!

Hello Troupies!

We hope you had a fantastic and restful spring break and are ready to jump right back because this weekend is our first mainstage of the Spring 2014 Season! That’s right,

 RAISED IN CAPTIVITY OPENS TONIGHT!

It has been years since twins Sebastian and Bernadette have seen each other when they are reunited at the funeral of their mother who was killed by a projectile shower head. Bernadette tries to keep her husband, Kip, in line when he decides that life is too short to be a dentist, whereas Sebastian, who is in love with his prison pen pal, Dylan, also has to fend off Hilary, his former therapist, who is driven insane by her undying love for him. Through witty dialogue and comically beautiful tragedy, these characters attempt to break free of their inner captivity.
