1st GM Recap and Audition Info

Well hello membership. And by hello, I mean OH HEY THERE. It was so amazing to see SO MANY NEW FACES and greet some old ones too! The EBoard LOVED seeing everyone. AWWW YEAHHHHHH! My apologies, I am quite excited for the season...

Somehow miss the GM? Get lost? Left something burning in your aptly equipped dorm room? Take a nap? All valid reasons to miss out, and luckily—I've got what you missed right here!

*****AUDITIONS*****

Auditions are this week! Auditions will be held: Monday, September 10th from 6-10PM in CAS B18A Tuesday, September 11th from 6-10PM in CAS B18A Wednesday, September 12th from 6-10PM in CAS 312

To audition you must pay $5 membership dues. Please also print out the audition sheet (one for each show you want to audition for!) http://bustagetroupe.files.wordpress.com/2012/04/audition-form.pdf

Auditions for the straight plays will be cold readings, so no preparation is necessary. Just show up and be ready to give it your all!

For Little Shop, the directors ask that you prepare 16-32 bars of music (a cappella) that best showcase your voice. Although there will be no cold readings for the show, the directors are still looking for people who can act, so be prepared to act your song choice!

The callback list will be posted on the blog (bustagetroupe.com/blog) Wednesday night. Callbacks will be held in CAS 312 at 6PM on Thursday, September 13.

*****TECH*****

Are you interested in tech?! Power tools your forte? Really want to light that set? Have a brilliant design for that costume? Want to try it allllllll? Great! Find out how to do any and all of that and MORE at:

The TECH MEETING on FRIDAY, September 14th at 6:30PM in The Space (directions: From the green line, take the B train to Pleasant St and walk down Harry Agganis Way toward the river. The Space is located in the alley behind Raising Cane’s and next to BUPD in West Campus. A sign that says "Stage Troupe" is above the door!)

Although you can only act in one show, the great thing about tech is that you can tech as MANY SHOWS AS YOU LIKE. You are also welcome and encouraged to tech even if you get cast this season! We are always seeking more tech and looking to teach each department, so try something new (or something you're an expert at) and sign up!

*Don't forget, if you don't pay your dues at auditions, you'll need to pay at the tech meeting! $5
