Salutations you lovely, lovely Membership, and Welcome Back! I hope all of you moving in are having a good time and enjoying being back on campus! The sweaty times and blue/yellow carts are worth it, truly. Most importantly, I'm sure you're all revved up to catch up with friends and dive head-first into the flurry of student activity, and Stage Troupe is ready too!
We have an enormous number of events to start off the semester! Read on to find out about 'em, and don't forget to mark your calendars!
September 2nd, 4PM SPLASH (Nickerson Field) SPLASH is BU's back-to-school event featuring hundreds of student activities. Come visit the Troupe booth and help promote the season/the group to the class of 2016 and find out more about everything in store for the semester!
September 9th, 7PM First General Meeting (CAS 224) Our first meeting of the year! Meet the directors of our fall season and find out how to audition or apply for tech positions. We'll also be discussing the various events we have planned for the semester and other ways to get involved with Troupe, so you definitely want to be there.

***Little Shop of Horrors is seeking MUSICIANS and PUPPETEERS***
Finally, Our Parents' Weekend musical, Little Shop of Horrors, is looking for musicians interested in being a part of the pit orchestra! They need acoustic and electric guitar, bass guitar, keyboard, a pianist, and drum set. If you're interested or know anyone else who might be, contact the music director Tanner Knorr at email@example.com
Our Technical Advisor Andrew Smith would also like to remind the technicians pool that we will be needing puppeteers to handle our plants for Little Shop this season. It will be a special tech position, so if you secretly handle giant man-eating plants every day or if you're willing to try, keep that in mind as well when you head to the tech meeting!
All right, that's it for now m'dears. You'll be hearing from me again soon with Even More Goodness.
