SYNOPSIS:
Almost is a fictitious unorganized territory that fell just short of becoming a town in northern Maine. It is hundreds of miles from the ocean, and while the territory could be considered to be the countryside, the people that live in Almost are not rednecks, don’t have “Down East” accents, and aren’t eccentric. They’re regular people. ALMOST, MAINE shows scenes from the everyday lives of the residents of Almost. More specifically, it montages the love lives of nineteen different Almost-inians: the ups and downs and magical moments of love, that precious thing that connects us all.

This is a revival performance. Tickets are $5 and can be purchased here!

Boston University Stage Troupe Presents: ASSASSINS

Screen Shot 2019-01-05 at 9.57.22 PM.png

Assassins

Book by John Weidman and Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Directed by James Robson
Assistant Directed by Amanda Resendes
Music Directed by Doug Benishek
Choreography by Kim Zak

April 18-20
The Student Theater at Agganis Area

 Tickets available soon!

Synopsis:

In this darkly humorous musical, nine men and women who attempted (four of them successfully) to assassinate American presidents are depicted. While every nation has its assassins and would-be assassins, only in America, the authors suggest, do disturbed individuals act not because they hope to influence national politics but because they are wrapped up in a sense of entitlement. Feeling betrayed by the failed promise of American democracy and the American Dream, they strike out at the symbol for America: the American president. Assassins spans several musical styles and many decades, ultimately culminating in the assassination of John F. Kennedy.

Boston University Stage Troupe Presents: NOISES OFF

Yellow Black Speech Bubble Funny Taxi Business Card.jpg

Noises Off

Written by Michael Frayn
Directed by Taylor House
Assistant Directed by Siena Giljum and Emilee Martichenko


April 4-6
The Student Theater at Agganis Arena

Tickets available soon!
 

Synpopsis:

Lloyd Fellowes is the director of a theatre company. He's desperately trying to get his production together, despite the best efforts of the cast, the crew, and Lady Luck. We follow the production from final rehersals, through opening night, and onto the tour: as with any group of actors forced to work closely together for any great length of time, romances and arguments are bound to break out. Quite often, what's happening on stage is nothing compared to what's happening backstage...

the burials.jpg

The Burials

Written by Caitlin Parrish


Directed by Sean Doucette and Aisha Sheikh

February 28-March 2

Tickets available soon!

Synopsis:

Sophie is everything an upstanding young millennial should be: engaged, devoted to her family, and a likely valedictorian—but her life is shattered when her brother goes on a high school shooting rampage. Thrust into the spotlight, Sophie finds herself torn between defying the narrative being woven about her brother in the media and stopping the father she loves from using the rampage for his own political gain. Inspired by Antigone, The Burials is a modern tale of civic responsibility and the gun epidemic in America.

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.

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.
