Boston University Stage Troupe Presents: FOOTLOOSE (F&F Weekend)

When Ren McCormack and his mother move to Bomont, a town that has outlawed dancing, Ren immediately feels the pressure of being an outsider as the walls of this strict town close around him. Struggling to conform to these rules, Ren finds himself growing closer and closer to the town preacher’s rebellious daughter, Ariel. As the attraction between them grows, Ren endures intense mistrust from the preacher and the community as rumors of his past are spread around. After mobilizing his classmates to fight these rigid ways through a dance, he manages to galvanize the citizens and warm their hearts to create a more free and expressive town of Bomont.

Boston University Stage Troupe Presents: HAIR: THE AMERICAN TRIBAL LOVE-ROCK MUSICAL

Hair, a product of the hippie counterculture and sexual revolution of the late 1960’s, follows a group of young hippies fighting the establishment, dodging the draft, getting high, living, and loving in New York City. It’s 1967: the Vietnam War is raging and the Age of Aquarius is dawning. The ‘Tribe’ struggles to balance the demands of the harsh, violent world with their dreams of peace and freedom. When Claude receives his draft notice, he must decide whether to join his friends in protest, or bow to the pressures of society and his conservative parents, sacrificing his ideals and, possibly, his life. The themes discussed -- discrimination, civil disobedience, youthful defiance -- still resonate today.

In addition to being the first ever “rock musical” on Broadway, the show also made waves by featuring a racially integrated cast and discussing topics that were generally seen as taboo or socially unacceptable. The show made such a large impact on society at the time that several of its songs became anthems of the anti-Vietnam War peace movement. Hair is not only an important piece of art, it is an important piece of history that we are thrilled to be a part of.

No Exit (Revival Show) @ The Student Theater at Agganis Arena

Boston University Stage Troupe presents the 2018 Summer Show: NO EXIT by Jean-Paul Sartre, adapted by Paul Bowles.

Directed by David Murauskas
Technical Direction by David Gomez
Produced by Rachel Rex and Andrea Roman

The Cast
Cradeau: Hugo Lindsay
Inez: Michelle Sandler/Taylor House*
Estelle: Chrissy Sardano
Bellboy: Doug Benishek/Michelle Sandler*

* denotes that the role is double-cast.

SYNOPSIS:
Three seemingly unrelated people — the braggadocious womanizing journalist Vincent Cradeau, the sadistic lesbian secretary Inez Serrano, and the unstable vain socialite Estelle Delaunay — find themselves rooming together in a cramped, under-furnished room in Hell after death. Their initial awkward politeness quickly evaporates as they reveal the real torture of Hell: they can’t stand each other. Their personalities completely clash. As they recount their lives and recall the details of each bad deed that sent them to Hell, the hostility mounts among them, resulting in physical and verbal altercations meant to beat each other down and strip them of their humanity. Even when an exit presents itself, they would rather make the conscious choice to stay in the room and torture the others than try to make their escape.


Performances will be held on Wednesday, June 6th; Wednesday, June 13th; Wednesday, June 20th; Wednesday, July 11th; and Wednesday, August 29th at The Student Theater at Agganis Arena.

ADMISSION:

This is a ticketed event. Tickets are $5.00 and can be purchased here (link coming soon).

Charity Show 2018: Jane the Plain

Written by August Schulenburg
Directed by Babatunde Alford
Assistant Direction by Chrissy Sardano
Technical Direction by Francis Smith
Produced by Andy Moeller

Tickets: janetheplain.eventbrite.com 

CONTENT WARNING: This show contains implications of sexual assault and brief themes of suicide.

In a not so special town, at a not so special high school called Plainview High, six seemingly not so special kids work through teenage drama while expecting to come out unscathed. When Scotty the Hotty falls for Jane the Plain, Scotty quickly betrays her trust, leaving the other four shocked and Jane at her most vulnerable. At this point, Jane is mysteriously given a cursed gift and all six are plagued by its unforeseen consequences. Jane and Scotty are plagued by humility and self-reflection. Betty and Leonard are plagued by jealousy and obsession. Lexi and Leeson are plagued by expectations and self-worth. While struggling with these insecurities the six strive to find friendship, self-esteem, approval and love but are soon faced with the fact that in order to get the thing they’ve always wanted, they’ll have to do something they’ve never done.
