Speaking of tech…
TECHSTRAVAGANZA is BACK!
February 1, 2014
Noon at the Student Theater
A fresh take on tech workshops, Techstravaganza is a full day of learning your tech positions by doing them. So come on out, learn something new, and hang out with your fellow Troupies!
Now, contrary to popular belief, acting and tech aren’t all we have to offer you this semester. We also have a ton of awesome UPCOMING SPECIAL PROJECTS!
TA EVENT: MARISSA’S MAGICAL MENAGE A TROIS
8PM in the Student Theater
The TA Event is our annual fundraiser for our Charity Show and this year’s charity Prevent Child Abuse America. Join us for some laughs and a wonderful time- see a skit performed by the Eboard, compete in a cake-making contest, pie the Eboard, bid on a variety of items, and witness a few special performances from our incredibly talented membership! There is a $5 entrance fee, further donations are greatly appreciated.
February 14 &15, 2014
8PM (and midnight on 2/14) at the Student Theater
“Where the techies act, the actors tech, and the audience remains the same.”
‘Tis the season for everyone’s favorite special project! Join us for a performace of an adaptation of a classic movie (kept a secret until the show, as per tradition) with a little Stage Troupe flair that’s sure to never disappoint!
Just a reminder to be smart and responsible, be safe, and have fun! The games have begun folks.
May the odds be ever in your favor.
Now, the most wonderful time of the year, BUSTies season, is still a ways away. BUT we need hosts!
If you’re interested in hosting BUSTies, please come to Eboard on January 26 at 6PM prepared with a theme, some jokes, and a plan to “audition”.
**If you have an questions about any special projects, would like to host, perform, or donate items for auction for our TA Event, or would like to host BUSTies, please contact our VPSP Lauren at email@example.com for further details or questions!**
Stage Troupe’s Library is now open!
If you’re looking to expand your theatre knowledge or pitch a show next semester, Troupe now has a library for you to browse and check things out! Or, if you have a bunch of plays laying around and would like to donate to place where they will be loved, Troupe’s library is definitely an option! For further details or to check out or donate works, please contact our President, Ilana at firstname.lastname@example.org or VP, Emily at email@example.com.
Lastly, it is with a heavy heart that we must report the unfortunate resignation of our beloved Treasurer. Due to uncontrollable circumstances, Hanna will not be able to continue in her position with us this Spring, which means an opportunity has opened up for one of you, our wonderful membership, to step up! Hanna will be with us in the interim and available for guidance for the incoming Treasurer, so have no fear. Nominations and elections for Treasurer will take place simultaneously at our Second GM on February 9, 2014 at 7PM. If you are interested and have any questions about the situation or the duties of the Treasurer, please don’t hesitate to contact Hanna at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You made it! The first recap is always the longest, so congratulations and thanks for reading.
