Lights! Performers! Action, Oh my! NEW PLAYS!

Hey Gaiters!

My name is Thalia and I’m a 2nd year drama major. I am from the small town of Shediac Bridge, New Brunswick. I have been dancing for 16 years and acting for 10. During my Bishop’s experience so far I have performed, designed lights, assistant stage managed as well as stage managed productions. I am currently one of the co-ordinators for this years the New Plays festival. In fact, I just came home from our fantastic opening night! In case you don’t know what it is, here’s the scoop- it is a student run theatre festival which features plays written by BU students, as well as directed, stage managed, designed, costumes and performed. I was thrilled this summer when I found out I had the position and began work right away. Since then it has been a crazy couple of months preparing. Organizing this festival is so much more than I thought it would be. I have learned so much and although it was incredibly busy at times, tonight made it all worth it. The theatre was packed and the energy was incredible! During intermission while I was working at the bar in the lobby I got to see how everyone was reacting and was delighted to know our opening night was a success. It is things like this that make our little school nestled in Lennoxville so special. I had the chance to organize something big, I got to be a part of making something really great happen here. No feeling in the world beats that. I am so pumped for the rest of the week and to feel this excitement every night! New Plays are running every night this week at 8pm until Sunday night. Tickets are $6 for students, or you can see 3 nights for $15. There are 3 different nights of plays, each happens twice. I hope if you read this you will come and see our little festival. It really is something special, a part of BU where I have been able to “be me” (I love puns) and I hope you will want to be a part of it too! Plus we are selling wine, beer and champagne so why not come out and support? Until next time BU, this is Thalia (I talk about myself in the 3rd person sometimes..) signing out on a fantastic note after a packed opening night of New Plays. I hope I see you this week! X
