Pirates of Penzance at OSF [UPDATED 06.01]

[UPDATE 06.01] All updates and info are now ONLY on the call board. This is a reference for posterity. PAYMENT is killing me. People HAVE to get their receipts in and *TA DA* many didn't. So... at this point, there are FOUR people who were on the 'you have a seat if you get your money in on time' who now DON'T because they didn't get their money in on time.
[END UPDATE]

Thespian Election Results

50 Votes were cast in the election.3 Alumni voted. 2 Honorary members voted. 16 voters are new inductees. 13 voters are graduating. 18 voters were non-graduating Thespians. 2 of the inductees are also graduating, thus why this adds to 52.

There were undervotes in most races (meaning the total votes tallied is LESS THAN 50)

On the Amendment, 23 'yes' votes were received and 17 voters did not vote on the question. This is 100% of voters voting, though short of the 33 for 2/3 of votes cast...The Amendment will be adopted as no votes were cast in opposition. The ambiguity of 2/3 of 'votes cast' or of 'voters voting' is enough for me :), barring objection.

Here are the officer results:

Troupe Officers, 2011/12

Elections/Appointments are coming soon. The basic job descriptions can be found at the ITS site, but this post adds my expectations going forward for officers in Troupe 358. All members of the troupe as well as inductees are eligble to vote and all members and inductees who will be students at North for the 2011/12 term may stand for election. In addition to the elected officers, there are at least two additionals jobs that will be appointed and must be filled: Wardrobe and Properties. They are described below.

Troupe Constitution & ByLaws

Betcha Didn't Know We Had These... But we do. And they used to be up where you could see them, but the move to blogspot broke the link and then the hosing of the old nmdrama file system made it tougher still to track them down. SO. I am posting the text here and will link this post to a perma-link on the right sidebar. In reading them, you might notice we've not been following them well. Whee.

The version being uploaded will always be the most current version. In this case, it is includes a proposed amendment to the non-elected staff of Black Tornado Theater.  After the Jump :)

Fundraiser/Advertising Adventure!

So I got a fundraiser approved to close the year! It's very simple but effective... which is good, because we need money. It is simply going door-to-door through a neighborhood or two with a partner asking for spare change. It sounds lame, but the cheerleaders made thousands of dollars doing it once!

In addition to asking for spare change, there will be little cards availible that are a preview of next year's season! Yay! Advertising! Give one to every household that dares open the door for you. There will be an informational meeting soon and the date will be announced by the end of tomorrow.
Click on the title above to go to the Facebook event page!

Questions??? Contact me at school, comment on this, Facebook me... Do what you need to do. :)
Thank you!

details after the jump!

Student Led Productions 2011/12

We had several excellent applications for space in the upcoming season and as a result, we are pleased to announce that MORE than two productions have been accepted at this point in the process.

In addition to the planned Deparment season (And Then There Were None (September in the "Broud"), The Fantasticks (November in the Sjolund), Into the Woods (May in the Sjolund)), we hope to fit two additional shows to the "Broud", one in the Sjolund, and one in the Commons.
