GM #1 Recap

🎭 Hello! 🎭

For those of you who came to the General Meeting tonight, it was lovely seeing both new and familiar faces excited about Stage Troupe! If you weren't there, no worries-- here's a rundown of everything we covered at the meeting. Whether you were there or not (we know we threw a lot of information at you), if you still have questions after reading this email, you can always email stage@bu.edu.

Fall 2017 Season
We are very excited about our three main stage shows this season:

Grease 
October 13-15
Directed by Ellie Lavelle

Speech and Debate
October 26-28
Directed by Sarah Sosland

The Flick
November 9-11
Directed by Lucy Gamades

Auditions
You've probably heard the auditions spiel a few times by now, but here it is one more time for good measure. Auditions will be held on the following days:
Monday, September 11 from 6-10PM in CAS 224
Tuesday, September 12 from
6:30-10PM in CAS 522
Wednesday, September 13 from 6-10PM in CAS 224


You only need to come on one of the days and you may arrive any time between 6 (or 6:30) and 10.

Auditions for Speech and Debate and The Flick will consist of cold readings, so no need to prepare anything. If you'd like to audition for Grease, you should prepare 16-32 bars of a song that best shows off your voice, to be sung acapella. 

In order to audition you must pay dues through Eventbrite here, which are $7 for the semester or $12 for the year. The only thing you need to bring is a filled out audition form for each show you want to audition for, which you can find here. You may audition for as many or as few shows as you like.

Callbacks will be held that Thursday, 9/14 from 5-10 PM in CAS 522. If you are called back, you will be expected to stay the whole time (though you may not have to). If you have conflicts, you should email them to stage@bu.edu.

The callbacks list and cast lists will be posted on our website here. The link to the lists will be tweeted and posted in the Facebook group as well.

Tech Meeting
Interested in tech? Whether you're an expert costume designer, experienced builder, or have never touched a drill before, this meeting is for you. The first tech GM will be held on Saturday, September 16 at 4 PM in The Space. The Space (where we keep all of our tech supplies) is located at 949B Commonwealth Avenue (the entrance is in the alley behind Cane's). It's a little confusing to find the first time, so you can also meet at 3:45 at Raising Cane's and someone will walk you over.

Tech forms are open and due by September 19. If you already know what tech positions you'd be interested in, you can email those forms to our Technical Advisor, Caitlin at crf18@bu.edu or stage@bu.edu. They are available on the Forms & Resources page on our website here.

If you are interested in producing, those forms are also due September 19 and can be found on the same page as the tech forms.

Special Projects
In addition to the main stages we do every semester, Stage Troupe also puts on a number of Special Projects: 

Ice Cream Social-- September 23, 4:00 PM
Techstravaganza-- September 24
COMBAT-- September 29-30, 8:00 PM
Kickball with OB-- Date TBD
One Acts Festival-- December 1-2


Stay tuned for more information on each of these. If you weren't at the GM and want to know more about any of the events, feel free to email stage@bu.edu! Our VPSP is looking for a director and stage manager for COMBAT, so please email abbyk@bu.edu if you are interested. 

Think that's everything! Hope to see you all this week at auditions!  You can email stage@bu.edu if you have any questions about anything.
