About Our Shows

Mainstage Show: Stage Troupe produces three mainstage shows each semester, including the Family & Friends Weekend Show in the fall and the Charity Show in the spring. The shows are pitched and selected by the membership with the exception of the Family & Friends Weekend Show and the Charity Show. The former is selected by the Dean of Students, and the latter is selected by the Vice President of Special Projects.

  • Family & Friends Weekend Show: Stage Troupe partners with the Dean of Students to produce the weekend’s primary entertainment event. Typically a musical, the show is performed in the state-of-the-art Tsai Performance Center.
  • Charity Show: This show is Stage Troupe’s community outreach project. The funds raised from this production benefit a local or national charity of the director’s choice.

Summer Show: A unique experience for students who spend the summer in Boston, the summer show runs on a weekly basis during Orientation sessions to introduce students to Stage Troupe and the general extracurricular activities available at BU.

Special Projects: Special projects are unique, theatrical, and community-building works that are intended to invigorate the Stage Troupe membership. They offer additional acting and technical opportunities as well as fresh perspectives and innovations in theatre.
