We're nearly there, Troupies. A much-needed, very refreshing, my-goodness-please-hurry-up-and-get-here-already Spring Break is just around the corner! We believe in you all—pound your way through this week, and then relish in your well deserved minute to breathe!
Thanks to everyone who came out to our second General Meeting! If you weren't able to make it, that's no biggie! Below is a recap of all the important dates n' details that we reviewed! Read up, folks, there's a lot you don't want to miss.
Fall 2017 Season Pitches
It's nearly time to start selecting our season for next semester! If you are interested in directing next semester, please fill out a Family & Friends Weekend pitch form or a mainstage pitch form. Pitches will be due to our faculty advisor, Eric, on Monday, March 13th, at 4PM. Fill out the form, seal it in an envelope, and drop it off at 111 Cummington Avenue, Room B17.
Summer Show 2017
We're also accepting pitches for our Summer Show, which will be presented to incoming freshmen at Orientation this summer! If you are interested, please fill out a Summer Show pitch form by Monday, April 3rd, at 4PM.
Everyone in Troupe is an integral part in the way this group runs, and we greatly value your input! One way you can help influence the upcoming season and have your voice heard is by participating in Reading Committee! As members of Reading Committee, you will be able to learn about one of the shows pitched for the Fall and help review how fit it would be for a Stage Troupe production.
If you'd like to contribute, please email firstname.lastname@example.org stating your interest!
Spring 2017 Stage Troupe Theatre Showcase
This semester's One-Acts & Monologues Festival is changing its structure! Instead of producing a set of One-Acts with directors, full tech, etc., we will be holding our first Stage Troupe Theatre Showcase! If you have a monologue, musical number, or short scene that you'd like to perform by yourself or with friends, you're welcome to audition to be part of the show! Auditions will be held on March 27th & 28th from 6-10PM (don't worry, we'll remind you later, too). We hope this new format will keep the end of the semester as stress-free (but as fun-filled) as possible!
Don't forget! If you're interested in roasting a senior at this year's BUSTies, please email email@example.com saying who you'd like to crucify (with love, of course) before Spring Break!
GM3: Fall 2017 Voting & E-Board Nominations
GM3 is gonna be extremely important, and your attendance is critical the future of Stage Troupe and next semester's season! At GM3, all the prospective directors who are pitching for the Fall will present their visions and answer questions raised by the Reading Committee. All the present, dues-paying members will then vote on the mainstages that will be put on in the following semester! You must be present in order to vote on the season, so make sure you join us!
In addition to show voting, we will also begin nominations for next year's Executive Board. We will open up the floor for anyone to nominate somebody whom they believe would fulfill an E-Board position well (people may not nominate themselves). Should that person choose to accept the nomination, they will be in the running for elections at GM4 in April!
If you are interested in being on E-Board, we highly encourage you to come sit in on our weekly E-Board meetings and to chat with the person who currently holds the position you're after. We would love to fill you in on what to expect as a potential Board member!
GM3 will be on Sunday, March 19th, at 7PM in the Student Theater. We hope to see many of you there!
While there's a lot of planning to do in preparation for next semester, we can't forget about the great season that has only just gotten started! Make sure you see our next production coming later in March!
