Didn’t get to participate in the wonderful Troupe Sunday this past weekend, or just want to hear the information again? So many wonderful things happened and a whole lot of important information was given about the upcoming month that you don’t want to miss! So, the following is a summary of the events that occurred for your viewing pleasure:
First, we are so blown away by the amazing support you all showed this weekend. The TA Event: Marissa’s Magical Menage a Trois was a smashing success. We would like to thank all that participated in the night’s festivities, the performers, bakers, MCs, special guests, and most of all, the wonderful patrons whose generosity and support was outstanding. We were able to raise an amazing $800 for this year’s Charity Show, Doubt: A Parable and a great cause in Prevent Child Abuse America. We could not be more thrilled.
Next, we would like to personally thank those who stepped up Sunday evening and ran for Treasurer. It is nice to see such passion for being leaders in Troupe. Furthermore, we would like to extend the warmest of welcomes to the newest member of the Executive Board, Treasurer Joe Gambino!
Important Upcoming Dates and Information
We need BUSTIES HOSTS!!!
Love BUSTIES? Have brilliant beyond brilliant ideas of how the event should go? Come on in to Eboard on Sunday, February 16, at 6PM and “pitch” them to us!
We ask that any person or group pitching to host BUSTies consider the following things: how the event will run as a whole, including show order, theme, dress-code, and other logistical concerns; if you're a part of a group, how each member of your group will actively contribute to the process; and finally, how your sense of humor will translate to an audience with diverse opinions of their own.
We look forward to seeing you all on the 16th of February!
