[Theaterfacultystaff] 2018-2019 season submissions

I’d like to amend Monee’s email. The Season Selection Committee is meeting tomorrow for the first time - I’m on the committee, and it was not my understanding that tomorrow was a hard deadline for submissions, only that we were beginning to review the work that has already been submitted via PDF.  I wrote the email, and in an effort to get something to the student body quickly, I didn’t think to include a deadline - and in fact, there was no deadline set to my knowledge. Tomorrow, we will discuss the plays submitted and read (thus far) by Anne McAlexander and Jonathan Hetler (for their thesis productions).

Plays can continue to be submitted for consideration for another week (and past, if necessary). So that you can all follow Monee’s great advise about working together and articulating a strong reason why a show should be included in the season, please consider the deadline a week from tomorrow, 11/17. Anyone who has a great idea can keep submitting, all we need is time for the committee (including three students) to read and process.

Hi everyone! I am sure that everyone is aware of the season play recommendations email that was sent out to us on Monday to request plays we would like to see produced here at OU in our 2018-2019 season. And if you weren’t already aware the deadline for these recommendations is Friday (tomorrow) November 10th. I want to stress how important it is for people to actually respond to this email including all upcoming graduating students. the larger response a hope to a better resolution.

With that being said I would like to pitch The Bluest eye play adaptation of Toni Morrison’s book by Lydia Diamond to you all. It is a very touching story based right here in Ohio. I believe if we all chose one to two plays and sent this out as recommendations as a GROUP vs everyone simply sending out a multitude of different shows will be way more effective. If anyone is not familiar with the bluest eye and would like to read it please email me ms906616 at ohio.edu<mailto:ms906616 at ohio.edu> and I will be more than happy to send you the script.

Also keep in mind that regardless of the guidelines in the email it’s very important if EVERY Person also includes at least one paragraph in their email recommending a play explaining the importance of why This play should be done here at OU.

Ps. Please email all of us with any other play recommendations so that we are all on the same page and work together with ALL of our voices.

 In addition to this if you aren’t already aware that the deadline is tomorrow however This was not included in the email and was only heard via word by mouth and I am sure that ALL students are still unaware of this deadline. I am willing to represent the student body of the theatre department to address this and ask for at least a week extension in fairness to the student body.

I really hope that we can all work together to make strides!

Best Regards,

Hello All,

The Advisory Committee for Tantrum held a meeting Wednesday evening and are in talks of forming an apprentice company this summer. In effort to serve the students they were interested in knowing what and how such a company would be desirable to all of us. If you all could email all your thoughts and ideas about what the apprentice company could offer that would make it a desirable choice for you, that would be great, and I can present them at the next advisory meeting.

Again, I want to thank you all for your support in our meetings over the last two Wednesdays, it's means a lot, and so thankful for all of you.
