Blackbox Theatre Company is excited to announce we will be holding an end of the year charity showcase on May 1st! This is an opportunity for students not only to show their various talents and skills, but to enjoy each other's company one last time before final's week, summer, and/or graduation! BTC values the importance of using theatre to help others and therefore all the proceeds of the event will go towards Comedy with a Cause, a charity founded by Menaka Deolekar to help low support income families of people with special needs. Those of you who are interested in performing in this showcase (it can be anything: monologues, songs, playing an instrument, spoken word poetry, improv, comedy, etc.) please email [email protected] with your Name and What Talent You Plan on Performing by Wednesday April 17 by 5PM.

AS SEEN ON TV: SCENES FROM FILM AND TELEVISION

The Blackbox Theatre Company would like to present a student-directed scene showcase some time in March. We are looking for individuals who would be interested in directing a scene from film or tv (we see enough theatre scenes from acting classes).

The rules:
Directors can cast whoever they want for the scene and can act in someone else's scene but they cannot cast themselves and the scene has to come from a movie or TV show. The scene cannot exceed 10 minutes.

There will be a general interest meeting next Wednesday February 11th at 4:30pm in Room 6. This will be your opportunity to pitch the scene you want to direct, your design/staging concept, casting, and what you plan to do differently from the original scene. Please email all scripts to [email protected] before next Wednesday.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us.

We're back! Our spring season will be announced soon!
