Holy Finals, Batman!
Thank you so incredibly much to everyone who came out to our fifth and FINAL General Meeting of the year! It was great to see all of you before we plunge into these last couple of weeks of classes. If you weren’t able to make it to GM5, then golly, you know the drill—a full recap is listed below!
Spring Has Sprung
Last weekend, we completely finished off our Spring 2017 Season with a hilariously fun event, “Once Upon a Showcase!” A humungous congratulations to each and every one of you who participated in any production throughout our Season. It’s because of all of your individual efforts that we are able to collaborate and put on such amazing theatre! Pat yourselves on your theatrical lil’ backs, Troupies!
Technical Advisor for the 2017-2018 Academic Year
VP-elect Evan Creedon has spoken, and the membership has overwhelmingly approved: our Technical Advisor for the upcoming academic year has hopped on Board! We’re happy to announce that next year’s TA will be Caitlin Fournier, a rising senior from Columbia, MD, who studies Sociology and Computer Science in the College of Arts and Sciences!
Everyone’s so psyched to have Caitlin take on this immensely honorable leadership role. Congrats!

While our Season may be over, that doesn’t mean the fun has ended! We still have BUSTies, a Stage Troupe favorite, to take care of! BUSTies is an amazingly fun night of awards, laughs, and senior roasts—a perfect way to end the year and bid adieu to all the soon-to-be Troupe alumni. Not sold yet? There will also be DESSERT and COFFEE. So suit up in your fancy skirts and bowties, and b̶r̶a̶c̶e̶ ̶y̶o̶u̶r̶s̶e̶l̶v̶e̶s̶ get pumped up for what your hosts, Chris n’ Lucy, have prepared for you!
Tickets for BUSTies are $10 and can be purchased here.
And, of course, to stay up-to-date about BUSTies news, make sure to RSVP to the Facebook event here.
All right, you rascals, theatre is messy, and so our Space needs tidying up at the end of every semester! We need all hands on deck to join us on Sunday, May 7th, to come down to The Space and help us reorganize and declutter. A Facebook event for Space Cleaning is in the works, so look out for it!
Remember, while we encourage all Troupies to lend a helping hand, we require anyone who worked on a mainstage this semester to clock in some time to help clean. We all made this mess together, and we gotta make sure everything is clean for next semester. Every mainstage show from this Season must contribute a collective 40 hours of service from the cast and crew. Our TA, Chris, will soon post a Google Form for you to sign up for as many hours of work your able to contribute. So, hey, clear your schedules for the 7th so that we can all clear The Space as efficiently as possible!
Summer Show 2017
The selection for this year’s Summer Show is still in the works, but worry not! We’re very close to making a decision, and we’ll let you know the very second everything is finalized.
If you are going to be in Boston over the summer, WE WANT YOU! Please consider joining our Summer Show production so that we can put on a great, theatrical first impression to all the prospective Troupies who will come see us perform during Orientation! This is a great way to keep your theatre muscle active as well as to recruit new members for the Stage Troupe family!
Auditions for Summer Show will take place the first week of May. Stay tuned for a Facebook event with all the details!
If you’re interested in being a Technical Director for Summer Show, please email Chris Remillard at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you’re interested in being a Producer for Summer Show, please email Andy Moeller at email@example.com.
We hope all our Boston-based Troupies will join us for Summer Show!
Well, that’s it for your final GM recap of the year! It’s truly bittersweet, and I’m sad to stop sending you all these colorful, cheesily GIFed emails every month. But, hey, we’ve still got a month left until everything is truly over, and we clearly have a whole lot more to do with Troupe before we wrap up finals! Good luck with all your final projects and exams, kids. I believe in you and your GPAs. Of course, you can always keep the happiness alive by brightening up your social media feeds with all things Stage Troupe:
Study hard, sleep well, eat fruit, and know that summertime is waiting just around the corner.
