GM #1 Recap

GM #1 Recap 

It was so nice to see old and new faces at the GM tonight. We went through some fun facts, a ton of information, and a foreboding assassins presentation. If you missed it, no worries, tune in for a full recap below! 

Our Season
We have three great shows coming up:


Jane the Plain
Directed by Babatunde Alford
February 22-24

Directed by Conner Reed
March 29-31

Next to Normal
Directed by Lara McCallister
April 12-14

Ready to jump back into acting? Auditions for our three main stage shows will be held January 22, 23, and 24 from 6-10 PM in 700 Beacon St, Room 209! You only have to come on one of these nights and you will not be required to stay the whole time. Please print out an audition form (located on the 'Forms & Resources' page of the Troupe website) for each show you would like to audition for. No preparation is necessary for Jane the Plain or Smokefall. For Next to Normal, please prepare about a minute of a song to be sung a capella. There will be cold readings for all three shows. 

Callbacks will be held the following Thursday from 6-10 PM in the same place. If you are called back, you are expected to stay the whole time (though you may not have to). If you have any conflicts, please email them to as soon as you can and the directors will try to accommodate you. 

Producing and Tech Applications
Apply to produce! Apply to tech! The shows can't go up without you. All applications are available on the Troupe website under Forms & Resources. The deadline for producing applications is Saturday, January 27. You can email our treasurer, Andy, at if you have any questions. Tech applications are due by Monday, January 29 to either or Email Caitlin, our Technical Advisor, at if you have any questions!

If you'd like to learn more about tech before you submit your application, the general tech meeting for this semester is this Saturday, January 27 at 3 PM in the Space! The Space is located in the alley behind Raising Cane's. Don't worry, if you've never been there before, someone in a Troupe shirt will be outside Cane's at 2:45 to guide you. The directors will be there to discuss the specific tech visions for their shows. Even if you've never touched a power tool or worn any makeup, you may find your new passion in tech! NO experience is necessary to apply! 

Money, Money, Money!
In order to audition/be cast/tech/produce, you must pay DUES! They are $7 for the semester and we will give you the link to pay at auditions. If you already paid last semester for the full year, you do not have to pay again. And as we all know, Andy will catch you if you try to sneak by without paying.  

Special Projects
We have many neat special projects coming up this semester, some which will be done in collaboration with the other theater groups on campus. Here's a preview of some of them: 

  • TA Event: Caitlin’s Colonial Cannibal Cotillion 20Cait-teen - February 2nd

  • Tech Show: February 9 & 10 at 8:00 p.m.

  • BU Theatre Formal - March 1st

  • Capture the Flag - Date TBD

  • Spring Showcase - April 26-28

  • BUSTies - May 1

Seniors, start deciding if you'd like to get roasted or want to roast somebody. Our VPSP, Abby, will be holding a roast workshop in the near future, so stay tuned for info about that. She's also going to start looking for a BUSTies event manager, so consider applying if you think you may someday want to be VPSP. 

And a quick note on Assassins: a benevolent higher power has granted us an extra day of preparation, so the game will start TOMORROW night at midnight, not tonight. Stop by auditions to receive your clothespin!
