HAPPY NOVEMBER, TROUPIES A huge thanks to everyone who came out to this month's general meeting! You all played a huge part in deciding the future of Stage Troupe, and I'm so glad to know that our Spring 2017 season will consist of shows that best reflect our membership's interests.
For those of you who couldn't make it, no worries! We're a busy bunch, us BU students, but that doesn't mean we can't all stay informed. So if you missed out on Sunday's GM, or if you want a little refresher, here's your recap:
Spring 2017 Season Announcement
The membership has spoken! By popular vote, the Spring 2017 season has been decided and will be as follows.
Charity Show: God of Carnage Written by Yasmina Reza Directed by Maggie Skaza and Erin Mc Sweeney
Twelve Angry Jurors Written by Reginald Rose Directed by Dan Leary
Avenue Q Written by Jeff Whitty, Robert Lopez, and Jeff Marx Directed by Ellie Lavelle
Congratulations to our future directors! Here's to a fascinating Spring season!
Fall 2016 One-Acts & Monologues Festival
It's nearly time for our Fall 2016 One-Acts & Monologue Festival, which will be on December 9th and 10th at 8PM! The Festival will consist of the One-Act plays listed below as well as a selection of monologues and musical numbers, directed by Maggie Skaza and Erin Mc Sweeney, respectively.
10 Minutes to Save the World Written by Addy Davies Directed by HwaYoun Kang
Pappia Pia Written by Lauren Casabona Directed by Lauren Casabona and Paulina Ke
Jimmy the Antichrist Written by Keith J. Powell Directed by Brian Rollins
Auditions for our Fall One-Acts & Monologues Festival are THIS Monday and Tuesday, 11/14-15, from 6-10PM. You only have to come to one of these days, and you can show up and audition at any time throughout the 6-10 timeframe.
If you are auditioning for Pappa Pia, please prepare a 16-32 bars of any song to be performed a cappella. If you are auditioning to perform a monologue or musical number, please come prepared with the selection of your choice (it does not need to be memorized). Otherwise, you do not need to prepare anything else for auditions!
If you're looking to do anything besides perform on stage in the Festival, you're in luck—tech and producing opportunities abound for everyone! To tech for One-Acts, you may email our Technical Advisor, Taylor Tessitore, at email@example.com. To produce, you may email our Treasurer, Andy Moeller, at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Before we plunge into the world of One-Acts, we have one final mainstage for the Fall semester:
- Space Cleaning is projected to be on Sunday, December 11th. If you have participated in any show this semester, you must stop by and help us tidy up our build space. Your shows can be nominated for BUSTies only if the cast and crew have put in 40 collective hours of cleaning.
- General Meeting #4 will also be on Sunday, December 11th! More details are to come, but make sure your calendar is cleared for our last meeting of the semester!
- If you intend to bring up a concern during a Closed E-Board Meeting, please be sure to let us know beforehand—send an email to email@example.com so that we know what to expect and so that we may assess your concerns attentively.
- SENIORS! Our Senior Divas night is going to be on Tuesday, December 13th! Start thinking about a fun lil' ditty to perform for BU student theatre's last evening together before finals and the Winter Break. Also, if you have any ideas for a charity to which to donate our Senior Divas proceeds, shoot an email firstname.lastname@example.org and/or email@example.com!
Whew, you made it to the end of the email! Thanks for bearing with me; so much is going on in Stage Troupe, and you're a real trooper (I'm hilarious) for keeping up with it all. I hope you have a great week of auditions, and I'll see you all at Come Back, Little Sheba this weekend!
And, finally, have a happy Thanksgiving. We on the Stage Troupe E-Board are so incredibly thankful for all of you. We hope you feel like truly loved members of our family, and we wish you a peaceful few weeks ahead. I can say, on behalf of everyone on the E-Board, that we're always around to give you a great big hug if ever you should need one. What with all the hostility swarming around everywhere, we want you to know that you're safe and loved wherever fellow Troupies may be.
