We need some serious input about a not-so-serious subject…. call it the "HolidayHooHa" call it the "TheatreatreVCUHoovalation" We don't care… we just want you to call it "yours"

Hey ALL Theatre VCU Students!!

This one's for you.

it's been QUITE a semester - Every semester is HUGE….

that's why we have a blow-out with the Ball in May (by the way – there's a meeting for anyone and everyone who can give the Heaven & Hell Angels & Demons Ball a boost on this Friday, Nov. 21 at 1:15 on the second floor of PAC - drop in for a few minutes and let us know what would be fun to do and how you can help us do it - the more that pitch in - the more better, right?)

THIS SEMESTER - we want to give you an end-of-the-semester gift in the form of an afternoon/evening of food, performances, Secret Santa presents, holiday foolishness.

What would you like to do?

Let us know - we'd like to give you a celebration that you helped us design.

Here's what we have so far:

• December 4th at 5:00pm - Location TBA.

• Susan Schuld and her talented troupe of Radio Players will give us a heartwarming portion of "It's a Wonderful Life" Radio Drama with a Holiday sing-along

• Cookies, Hot Chocolate (or coffee), Candy Canes

What are YOUR ideas?


• Holiday Karaoke?

• Secret Santa gifts (under $10)?

• What other food?

• Bad Christmas movies?

• Photos with Santa?

• Ugly sweater contest?

• The best of No Shame?

• Charades? (really… what?)

WHAT DO YOU THINK would bring us all together to celebrate another HUGE semester? We want to do it.

Email me (gmbrannan@vcu.edu) - Facebook me - slide secret messages under my door.

Please!

Man of La Mancha comes to Channel 6

This was SUCH a great experience yesterday at Virginia This Morning on Richmond's Channel 6 (CBS)

Go here: http://wtvr.com/2014/11/13/the-epic-tale-of-don-quixote-comes-to-life-on-the-theatre-vcu-stage/

Check out James Taylor (Don Quoxite) mahlon Raoufi (Sancho) and Emily Adler & Alex Burkart (the Horses) singing and galloping their way through "I Don Quixote" - SO much fun!

Don't miss this show - it's one of the last Golden Age musicals -
winner of 5 Tony Awards - and the Theatre VCU production features a magnificent set, exquisite costumes and the beautiful voices of our students. Plus Don Quixote is played by James Taylor, known for his international operatic work. He brings not only his incredible vocal talent, but also his true understanding of Cervantes magical character…. James Taylor IS Don Quixote!

There is still a GroupOn deal out there…. shhh… don't tell anyone, but it's:
