Crazy weekend of ONE ACTS!!!!!

Bored this weekend and have nothing to do? Do you really want to go out, but don't have $11.50 to spend on a movie? Then come to Stage Troupe's Fall One Acts Festival!!

We have six short plays that will make you laugh, cry, and possibly cringe a little. There's demonic babies, talking books, killer grandmothers, psychotic couples, ambidextrous men, and suspicious meatloaf. If that doesn't catch your attention, I'm not sure what will. These plays are:

The Best Chef America Food Channel Cook Book - Directed by Julie Kaminski & Kelly Dickinson
Baby Talk: A Case Study in One Act - Directed by Andrew Smith
The Rumor - Directed by Celia Gibson
Early Morning - Directed by Travis Cherry & Margot Mache
Meat - Directed by Lauren Kolodkin
Small World - Directed by Marissa Cheifetz & Hanna Wasserman

The One Acts Festival is THIS FRIDAY AND SATURDAY AT 8PM!! They will be taking place in the Agganis Student Theater at 925 Commonwealth Avenue (in the alleyway between FitRec and the arena).

The best part about One Acts is.....IT'S FREE!!!! Just come, sit back and enjoy the show!!! It'll be an easy way to get your theater fix in.

So don't study for finals and come to the Student Theater this weekend! It'll be way better than that 3D movie you planned on wasting your money on anyway.



Come to our fourth and final General Meeting of the Semester!

Here we'll be reminiscing about the season and voting for BUSTies!!! BUSTies are like the
Tony's, but with classier trophies and better categories. It's an awards ceremony held at the end of every school year where we recognize our friends for all of the endless hard work they put in this semester.

Also, it's just nice for everyone to get together one last time before
we die over finals and head off for winter break. (I may bring candy again...) SO COME!!!


Space Cleaning is a fun day when all the Troupies congregate with loud music and some brooms and CLEAN THE SPACE. SPACE CLEANING IS MANDATORY. You don't have to stay the ENTIRE time, but in order for the show you worked on to qualify for BUSTies everyone from that show must collectively contribute 40 hours of cleaning time. YES. It sounds a little daunting, but it's really one of the best days of the year. DON'T SKIP IT. IT WILL BE SO MUCH FUN.

So we can all hang out/clean at the space all day, EAT, and then go to the GM.

But I think to him they were all my sons.

"There's nothin' he could do that I wouldn't forgive. Because he's my son. Because I'm his father and he's my son...Nothin's bigger than that."

This weekend don't miss our FINAL MAINSTAGE OF THE SEMESTER:

Written by Arthur Miller
Directed by Elise Roth and Mike Halpern
Technically Directed by Kirsten Fukayama

Performances will be held in the Agganis Student Theater at 925 Commonwealth Avenue
(right in the alleyway between FitRec and the Arena) on:
Thursday, November 17th at 8pm
Friday, November 18th at 8pm and
Saturday, November 19th at 8pm

Tickets are $6 for general admission and $5 for Stage Troupe Members and can be purchased at the Student Activities Desk on the second floor of the GSU, or at the door. This American classic is selling out fast so get your tickets while you can!

Set in 1947, in the Keller's backyard, Miller's Tony Award Winning Play emanates themes of family, trust, betrayal, and guilt "for God doesn't let a son be killed by his father." This incredibly moving show is a MUST SEE, so "be smart", take a break from your work, and come on over any night this weekend. You will not regret it.

Big time tonight!!

Acting/Directing Opportunities!


The Directors of the One Act 'Early Morning' are seeking one male to fill the role of Detective Diamantini in their show. The cast is only two people, it is a low time
commitment, and would be a great opportunity to explore a new acting role. If this
interests you, please come to THE SPACE on Tuesday, November 15th from 5pm-6pm to
audition! It will be a cold reading, so just print out an audition form and bring your best!

One Acts take place December 2nd-3rd so make sure you are FREE that weekend before you audition!


Interested in Directing, but a little nervous about the process/how to go about it? The Directors of 'Speech and Debate' and 'In the Next Room or The Vibrator Play' are looking for Assistant Directors! Each is searching for someone passionate about the piece (that has read it) with a strong vision who can help them throughout the process. If this excites you email:

Jimmy Blackmon (Speech and Debate) at jmkblackmon@gmail.com
Melissa D'Anna (In the Next Room) at mmdanna@bu.edu

Ask them any questions you may have/for copies of the scripts!!!
Melissa is also seeking a Dramaturg, so email her if this piques your interest as well.


I must teach myself never to say Hedda Gabler again.

They will come--with vine leaves in their hair to see one of the most renowned dramas of all time:

Written by Henrik Ibsen
Directed by Marcus Doyle
Technically Directed by Marissa Cheifetz

Performances will be held in the Agganis Student Theater at 925 Commonwealth Avenue (right in the alleyway between FitRec and the Arena) on:
Thursday, November 10th at 8pm
Friday, November 11th at 8pm and
Saturday, November 12th at 8pm

Tickets are $6 for general admission and $5 for Stage Troupe Members and can be purchased at the Student Activities Desk on the second floor of the GSU, or at the door. Tickets are going fast, so get them while you can!

This play has been performed thousands of times, but this productionis guaranteed to be more visually captivating and breathtaking than any you have ever seen. The story of a woman desperate to break free from societal constraints is suspenseful and moving all at the same time.

This is an incredible opportunity and you have THREE chances to watch it, so get on that "pleasure train" and see this inspiring piece of work.

"After this, I will be quiet."

(E-Board does not have enough paper in their print quotas).

But seriously, audition. IT'S SO MUCH FUN and a FABULOUS opportunity to do something
small before the semester ends.

If you would like to TECH One Acts email our TA Dani at dsfreiberg@gmail.com, and if you would like to PRODUCE email our Treasurer Allie at alliero@bu.edu.



This meeting is incredibly important as we will be VOTING ON THE SHOWS FOR OUR SPRING 2012 SEASON as well as ANNOUNCING OUR FALL ONE ACTS!!

Auditions for One Acts are set to take place Monday, November 7th- Wednesday November 9th, and the details of how they work/where they are/what they entail will be discussed in greater detail at the meeting.

If you wish to tech One Acts please email our TA Dani Freiberg at dsfreiberg@gmail.com. If you would like to produce, email our Treasurer Allie at alliero@bu.edu. One Acts is a great way to get involved in something small at the end of the semester with all of your friends, so don't be shy!


This is a really fun game of cat and mouse involving all Troupies. You are given a target and you must eliminate that target by 'killing' them (with a clothespin). It's insane, fun, and crazy, so SIGN UP!!! The only way you can sign up is by attending our next GM. I repeat....IF YOU DO NOT COME TO THE GM YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO PLAY ASSASSINS (unless you bribe Marcus with a latte). You will regret it, I assure you.

The message of this email is simple...ATTEND OUR NEXT GENERAL MEETING THIS SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 6TH AT 7PM IN THE STUDENT THEATER!!!! It is the most important meeting of the semester where our democratic system is working at it's finest, but we NEED ALL OUR TROUPIES THERE! YOU get to decide what goes up next semester, YOU get to hear about other fabulous acting/teching/producing opportunities, and YOU get to run for your life in Assassins. I really don't see what could be a better way to procrastinate from your work.

We'll never really be safe again.

WATCH OUT!!! They're everywhere....

Looking for something frightening this Halloween weekend, but sick of the same old scary movies? Eager to see some live blood and gore? Then come check out Stage Troupe's Production of...

Saturday, October 29th at 8pm

Tickets are $6 for general admission and $5 for Stage Troupe Members and can be purchased at the Student Activities Desk on the second floorof the GSU, or at the door. This show is going to be KILLER so it's best that you get them NOW!

It's an edge of your seat psychological thriller that can't be overlooked. Skip the haunted house or Paranormal Activity 3, and get immersed in the horror yourself. You know you're curious, and we guarantee you'll cringe.

Get scared.

Fall 2011 Season

Book by: Hugh Wheeler
Music by: Stephen Sondheim
Directed By: Ryan McPhee and Abigail Smith
Please join Stage Troupe in celebrating Parents Weekend 2011 with the production of this Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler masterpiece, recently revived on Broadway starring Academy Award winner Catherine Zeta Jones. With a breathtaking score including the staple “Send in the Clowns” and a book full of romance, comedy, and passion, A Little Night Music is sure to captivate an audience of students and parents alike.
It is the turn-of-the-century Scandinavia. Middle-aged Fredrik Egerman brings his young wife Anne to a play starring “the one and only” Desiree Armfeldt. It is soon revealed that Desiree and Frederik are in fact former lovers. The two begin to rekindle their romance, enraging Desiree’s current lover, a pompous Count. In her attempts to win Fredrik back, the actress has her sage mother invite the Egerman family to their county estate. This “Weekend in the Country” brings together Frederik, Anne, Desiree and the Count, as well as Fredrik's son, Desiree's daughter, the Count's scathing wife, and the Egermans' lusty maid. With the beautiful estate as a backdrop, love is discovered and reawakened, and the night smiles upon the young and the old.
Written By: Tracy Letts
Directed by: Chris Hamilton
Agnes is afraid. Afraid of her recently paroled abusive ex-husband, Jerry, afraid of the breathy, wordless phone calls that keep her up at night, afraid of sleeping alone in the seedy Oklahoma City motel room she's holed herself up in. Along comes Peter, a soft-spoken, thoughtful young man, who gives her the love and companionship she's desperately longed for. Then the bugs appear; tiny, nearly invisible bugs that crawl under your skin and feed on your blood. As Agnes and Peter's paranoia grows, dark character secrets are revealed, giving way to government conspiracies, pure psychological terror, and more bugs. Millions and millions of bugs.
Written by: Henrik Ibsen
Directed by: Marcus Doyle
Henrik Ibsen's Hedda Gabler has stood as the pinnacle of dark, psychological plays for more than a hundred years. It illustrates the story of a woman whose desires and motives outlay the expectations and restraints imposed on her by society. Her struggle for freedom and control over her life drives her to a desperate and expressive end. This play has been produced thousands of times with hundreds of interpretations, transcending the boundaries of time and culture, finding novel meaning as each generation explores the text and craft of Ibsen's masterpiece.
Written By: Arthur Miller
Directed By: Elise Roth and Mike Halpern
It is August 1947 in the backyard of the Keller residence, located in the outskirts of an American town. Joe Keller, a “man among men,” ran a machine shop during the war that turned out defective airplane parts, causing the death of countless young soldiers. Years later, Joe leads a successful life while his former business partner, Herbert Deever, is locked up behind bars. While Joe carries around this burden of guilt, his wife, Kate, is haunted by nightmares of their missing son Larry. Their other son, Chris, wishes to marry childhood neighbor Ann, his brother Larry’s lover and daughter of Herbert, much to the dismay of Kate. Following the arrival of Ann’s bitter brother George, Joe's terrible secret is unveiled and the Keller household is turned upside down.
Through the brilliant words of legendary playwright Arthur Miller, the problems of a post-war suburban American family are explored and reach an emotional climax that is electrifying in its intensity and powerfully raw in its sincerity.
