Welcome Back and Instant Gratification!

Last night was the Welcome Back party for Educational Theatre and the kick-off for the coming school year!  It was a great opportunity to meet and mingle with fellow Educational Theatre students, as well as to learn more about the Educational Theatre program from our wonderful faculty.

This semester, the main stage production will be Salvation Road directed by David Montgomery, which will take place on the last weekend of October and the first weekend of November.  Many friends of Uproar and even our very own Uproarians are involved, so we hope that everyone will go out and support!

We also learned that next semester's main stage production will be The Crucible directed by Phillip Taylor, and the auditions will take place shortly after Thanksgiving, so get ready to act your heart out!

But even sooner auditions will take place September 21st and 22nd for Shakespeare-to-Go's production of Hamlet directed by Daryl Embry.  Be on the look-out for more info if you'd like to be involved - it's a great opportunity and experience!

Amy Cordileone, our faculty advisor and newly appointed full-time faculty, also told us a little about the Writer's Circle.  Many renowned writers, as well as some of our very own alumni, will be writing new works throughout the school year in a writer's circle that will also open up some opportunities for current students to be involved in.  Later on, these writers may need student actors, and we're also thinking of ways to get Uproar involved as well!

Finally, we learned that Theatrix in Spring 2013 will have an extremely different flair from years past, and we cannot wait to hear more about it!

We hope that you will all find ways to be involved in as many events as possible - integrate yourself into the Ed Theatre community!


However, one of the most exciting things about our kick-off Ed Theatre evening was Instant Gratification.  6 playwrights wrote plays over night with some very specific parameters, which were then to be directed, memorized, and perfected the next day to be performed that night.  All six plays were enjoyable to watch and exciting to see.  Everyone on our Uproar E-board played a part in Instant Gratification, whether it was writing, directing, or acting.  Did you do anything for Instant Grat?  Share here!


Let us know what you thought about Instant Gratification - and what you're planning to do for the coming school year in Educational Theatre!

A Rabble Rousing Start to the New Year!

Hey everybody! Uproar has an awesome year planned, but none of it is possible without all of you. The first meeting of the Uproar Theatre Corps general membership, now officially named the Uproar Rabble Rousers is this Friday (9/7) at 6pm (Third Floor Lounge). We'll be playing games, announcing our baller schedule, going over our semester-long competition (Big Ups anyone?), and talking advanced statistics for my fantasy basketball team. Come and join us and be a Rabble Rouser!
