Fourth General Meeting Recap

Hoppy April!hahahaha 

Don't worry, Troupies, you won't have to deal with my punnies for too much longer; the Executive Board for the 2017-2018 academic year has been chosen, and I will soon peter (cotton tail) out once my successor steps up!
Thank you so much to everyone who came to vote at the GM! We were so glad to see such an enthusiastic bunch of the membership show up to choose their representatives for the upcoming year. If you weren't able to make it, that's all right! Check out this recap to get up-to-date on all Troupe goings-on!
Executive Board 2017-2018
We are stoked, proud, and a lil' weepy-eyed to announce the future Executive Board for the 2017-2018 academic year! 
Christopher Remillard
Vice President
Evan Creedon
Vice President of Special Projects
Abby Kass
Andy Moeller
Lucy Gamades
Congratulations, everyone! We're all extraordinarily excited to see such an impressive group of leaders step up to keep Stage Troupe thriving!
Our Technical Advisor position is selected differently than the rest of the E-Board—prospective TAs must send in their applications for the new VP-elect to review. Once Evan decides (with the guidance of the current VP and TA) whom he feels is best fit for the job, he will seek out a majority vote of approval from the membership at GM5. Those interested in being Technical Advisor for next year can find an application here, which will be due to Evan at ecreedon@bu.edu by Wednesday, April 12th!
Summer Show 2017 Pitches
Pitches for Summer Show are due Monday, April 3rd, at 4PM. If you're looking to direct our Summer Orientation production, please hand in your pitch to Eric Jacobsen at 111 Cummington Avenue, Room B17!
BUSTies is coming up! Mark your calendars for Tuesday, May 2nd, at 6PM, and keep your eyes peeled for an Eventbrite and Facebook event in the near future! This is a wacky, Tonys-like evening of awards, senior roasts, and general hilarity. You won't wanna miss it!
Don't forget: if you are roasting a senior, your roasts are due on Friday, April 7th, to Sydney Charvat (scharvat@bu.edu), Sam Curley (srcurley@bu.edu), & Kobi Kassal (kassalk@bu.edu)!
Stage Troupe Theatre Showcase Technicians
We're still looking for extra sets of hands for our Stage Troupe Theatre Showcase! If you would like to assist with lights, please email Chris at chrisre@bu.edu! And if you're interested in producing, please email Andy at moellera@bu.edu!
Both positions will be super casual and super-duper low-key. We would appreciate any help you guys have to give us!
Upcoming Productions
Those of you who came to the GM got a great little sneak-peek of the set for Stage Troupe's final mainstage, which is going up at the end of this week!
The Fantasticks
Directed by Ellie Lavelle
Musically Directed by James Robson
April 6th, 7th, & 8th at 8PM

The fun never ends! We're so excited to see you all at The Fantasticks this weekend!

Our final GM of the semester isn't too far away, either! GM5 will be on Sunday, April 23rd, at 7PM! At the meeting, we'll be voting on BUSTies for the spring season as well as the new Technical Advisor for next year.

General Meeting #2 Recap

Forward MARCH

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.
Reading Committee
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 scharvat@bu.edu 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!
BUSTies 2017
Don't forget! If you're interested in roasting a senior at this year's BUSTies, please email scharvat@bu.edu 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!
Upcoming Production
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!
Directed by Cassidy Donohue
March 23rd, 24th, & 25th at 8PM
The Student Theater at Agganis Arena
$8 General Admission, $7 Stage Troupe members
Stay tuned for a Facebook event and ticket information!

Second General Meeting Reminder (and more!)

Howdy, Troupies! Happy snow day! We hope this storm allows you to be safe, rested, and fully caught up on New Girl and This is Us.  Here are a few things to keep on your radar in the world of Troupe:

BUSTies Hosts n' Senior Roasts Ever dreamed of hosting the Tonys, only to realize that Neil Patrick Harris basically has the job lined up for him every year until 2054? Settle for less and host this year's BUSTies! If you're interested in being the fun face for our annual awards show, please email scharvat@bu.edu by 11:59PM on Monday, February 13th with your name (and, if applicable, your co-host's name) and a short pitch explaining why you'd be the best host(s).

SENIORS! We know you want to get dragged through the mud by your closest friends. If you want to get roasted at BUSTies, please email scharvat@bu.edu by 11:59PM on Monday, February 13th. If you don't contact Sydney, you won't be able to be featured in everyone's favorite part of BUSTies!

General Meeting #2 Our second GM of the semester will be on Sunday, February 26th, at 7PM in CAS 313! Mark your calendars—at this meeting, we'll be finding out how much money we will have raised with Charity Show, and then we'll hear about all the Fall 2017 pitch processes that everyone—even those not pitching—will want to know about! Keep your eyes peeled for an event on Facebook!

Upcoming Shows We have two spectacular productions coming just around the corner! Hop on over to the Student Theater this month for Troupe's first shows of the season!

General Meeting #4 Recap

Happy Holidays!  Thanks so much to everyone who helped out with Space Cleaning and showed up for our final GM of the semester! We're glad to have seen our best pals before plunging into finals and tumbling out into Winter Break. If you weren't able to make it (we missed you, dude!), we've got you covered. Here's a recap of everything we went over:

BUSTies Voting

BUSTies is our annual awards ceremony at the end of the Spring semester during which the shining stars of the year are given trophies and the seniors of Stage Troupe are roasted to a crisp before they head off into their postgraduate lives. At this GM, the Troupe membership filled out ballots to vote for the actors, techies, and directors who will receive BUSTies at the end of the year. And now we wait...

Spring 2017 Technical Advisor

We can't be more excited to announce that our Technical Advisor for Spring 2017 is going to be Chris Remillard, a dearly loved techstraordinaire who is going to be returning from his National Lampoon's European Vacation in the spring! Our E-Board is entirely confident that Chris is ready to take on and master such a pivotal role in Stage Troupe. Welcome to the team, partner!

Senior Divas Holiday Showcase

General Meeting #1

I miss Troupe already, and I'm sure you do, too. Worry not—GM1 for the Spring is only a few weeks away! We hope to see you all on Sunday, January 22ndfor our first meeting back. Keep your eyes peeled for a Facebook event and an email reminder with the time and location.

Now on to next season….. Just kidding (don’t worry, I have not forgotten about you Eurydice & Equus, I’m actually super stoked). However, we do have to start looking ahead. I know it sounds crazy because we’re just getting started it, but actually, the time has come.

SO, I hope the crisp air of autumn and fall colors have inspired you because it’s that time of year again….  PITCHES for next season are just about due!

We have so many opportunities available if you want to direct/pitch a show! If you want to pitch a show for next semester (or for ONE ACTS!), here’s what you need to know…

If you have any questions about the pitching process (specifics for this upcoming season can be found on our latest blog post on bustagetroupe.com), please contact stage@bu.edu and we’ll help you out. The Pitching Meeting is the next GM, SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 10TH at 7PM in COM 101. The pitches will be pitched and the membership shall vote and find out the next season that night! Yay, democracy!

P.S. PLEASE PAY Hanna YOUR DUES for those who have not already. If you are not a dues paying member, you CANNOT vote!


And lastly, I’d like to close this lovely email with some reminders of upcoming important dates and events not previously mentioned in this email:

That’s all for now folks. Hope you all feel informed, but mostly just excited.

TECH, Ice Cream Social, and Techstravaganza!

Hello Troupies! 
Now that our shows have been cast, it's time for the real fun to begin. 
First, in order to really delve into this season, we need TECH! In case you missed the General Tech Meeting last Friday, here is the run down from our Technical Advisor, Marissa: 
Thank you to everyone who came out for the Tech Meeting this past Friday! It was so great to see so many new (and old) faces! If you missed the meeting don't worry you can still tech this semester! All you have to do is email me a tech form (www.bustagetroupe.com/forms-and-resources) byTuesday 9/17 by 11:59pm.  Anyone and everyone can tech! Stage Troupe's motto is "Learning by doing" so even if you have zero experience with tech, we will teach you!!! Tech is a great way to stay involved with Troupe weather you were cast in a show or not. 
I encourage people to to fill out an application to be a assistant/Technical Director (also found on our forms and resources page). It is an amazing job that is really rewarding and a great way to dip a toe in every tech department! 
Techstravaganza is fast approaching!
Saturday 9/21 11:30am-3pm
The event is mandatory for all techies! But who wouldn't want to spend an afternoon hanging out in a theater?! 
Don't forget about Combat Tech!!!!!!!!!!
Meet techies from across campus! Also, a great way to be involved with combat if you can't commit to 24 hours! Tech call time will be at 12pm Saturday 9/28. It's going to be a lot of fun! I can't tell you much, because, it's a secret until day of! Shhhh. 
Aaaaaaaand speaking of special events- here's what is happening in the coming week: 
The Event Formally Known as "The Ice Cream Social"
Socialize with Troupe and "eat FREE ICE CREAM"!

next season (that's right, we're really that excited), and we know you

specifics or preferences you'd like.

Now, while we just cannot wait for Fall 2013, there is something very
