Spring Has Sprung!
Okay, not exactly, but the sun isn't setting at 4PM anymore, so I call that a win.
Anyway, hey! Thanks to all of you who came out to GM3—your attendance has greatly influenced the FUTURE of STAGE TROUPE. Whoa whoa whoa, that's fun, huh? If you couldn't make it to the meeting, no problem! We'll still keep you updated. Here's all that went down:
Fall 2017 Season
After a fun round of pitches, we are incredibly excited to announce the Mainstage Productions for our Fall 2017 Season!

Directed by Lucy Gamades
Speech and Debate
Written by Stephen Karam
Directed by Sarah Sosland
Congratulations, directors! We're so excited to see more of what you have planned for the upcoming semester!
We will be re-opening pitches for our Family & Friends Weekend Show. If you are interested in pitching for F&F, please submit your pitch at 111 Cummington Avenue, Room B17, by Friday, March 24th, at 4PM!
E-Board 2017-2018 Nominations
We held formal Executive Board nominations for the 2017-2018 academic year! Here are the nominees thus far:
Vice President of Special Projects
Voting for the Executive Board will take place at our Fourth General Meeting on Sunday, April 2nd, at 7PM in The Student Theater. The candidates will have two minutes to deliver a speech, followed by a brief question-and-answer period for each position.
Remember, you must be present at the meeting in order to cast your vote! Additionally, you can still be nominated! Have another member nominate you and another to "second" the nomination at GM4 itself, and you will be entered into the election. If you are in the running, or are considering going this electoral race, you are both welcome and highly encouraged to reach out to the current E-Board Member holding the position you're after!
Our Technical Advisor position is selected differently than the rest of the E-Board, as it includes filling out an application and sending it in for review. Those interested can reach out to the current TA, Christopher Remillard, at firstname.lastname@example.org for information. The TA Application will be due on Wednesday, April 12th!
Spring 2017 Theatre Showcase Auditions
We're gearing up for Stage Troupe's new Theatre Showcase, which will take place on April 21st and 22nd at 8PM in the Student Theater! If you have a monologue, musical number, or short scene that you and/or a friend would like to present in the Showcase, we want you to audition! You don't need to be completely off-book or performance-ready in order to audition. And, of course, if you want to perform but don't have any song or scene in mind, reach out to us, and we'll try to help you find something!
Auditions will be held on March 27th and 28th from 6-10PM. Keep your eyes peeled for a Facebook event and announcement of the location! We hope to see you there!
Summer Show 2017 Pitches
Will you be in Boston this summer? Looking to direct a show that could greatly influence both BU's and Troupe's first impressions to incoming freshmen? You should pitch for Summer Show! If you're interested, please fill out a Summer Show pitch form by Monday, April 3rd, at 4PM. Make sure you ffill out the form, seal it in an envelope, and drop it off at Eric Jacobsen's office in 111 Cummington Avenue, Room B17.
BUSTies 2017 Hosts
Move over, NPH. Stage Troupe has our hands on the best award-show hosts anyone could ask for. We're excited to announce that Lucy Gamades and Christopher Remillard are teaming up (surprised?) to host of this year's BUSTies! This, one of our favorite events of the year, will be on Tuesday, May 2nd, at 6:30PM. Mark you calendars; you won't want to miss the hosts, the roasts, the ghosts (will there be ghosts? You'll have to show up to find out.)!
HOLD UP! We have a show this weekend! Don't forget to come back down to the Student Theater this week for our next Mainstage Production!
