CORRECTION!!! Our audition flyers have a small mistake! You might be surprised to know that auditions are NOT happening in the past (like the flyers originally said) but are in fact happening on:
MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 9TH at 7:00pm and
TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 10TH at 8:00pm

(remember: you only need to come to one of those days!)

Sorry for the mistake but let's all remember that Thomas Edison messed up the flyers for HIS improv team's auditions at least thirty times before he got it right. See you all at auditions!!! Reach out with any questions! Bye!

It's the most wonderful nondenominational time of the year. It's (ALMOST) audition time! We will be tabling at Scot Spirit Day TODAY 4:00 - 7:00, so please come and say hello/ask questions/tell us a joke.
We will be answering any questions you may have about upcoming auditions, but here's a few pressing questions you may have!
1) Do I have to attend both audition days?
No! Only one of the two days, and then callbacks.
2) Do I need improv experience?
No, but I will say familiarity with Zotero will be helpful in your academic career.
3) How many people will you let in?
Damn too many questions! See ya'll at scot spirit day!

hap Burth go elyseee! This lovely(?) lady(?) is now 20(?)! The best friend of the sister of the founder of the inventor of the bendy straw has had the last straw when it comes to there just being 2 flavors of ice cream being offered at a time at Lowry per day. She’s started a GoFundMe to help her buy more ice cream for herself, so go support her AND HER DREAM! So, happy post-post-Boxing Day Elyse!

happy birthday to our favorite shoe! Samantha "DanHam" Green, class of 2020, turns 20 today (at 5pm, but whose counting). On this lovely Monday we acknowledge all that Samantha has accomplished, however- most of these accomplishments are from the 80's and have been redacted from any official documents to protect her privacy and the privacy of others. In order to receive this information please put in a freedom of information act request. Heres what we do know though- Samantha is the ghost writer behind every GOOD Carly Rae Jepsen song (so all of them), and has the Grammy's to prove it. Samantha has also trained the bat in Holden, and he is now her familiar. And while these are all impressive Samantha is also the founder of the William Blake poetry foundation- probably because she was the inspiration for the Blake poem The Smile (...That betwixt the Cradle & Grave/It only once Smild can be/But when it once is Smild /Theres an end to all Misery...). Happy birthday Samantha Green!
** GOOD LUCK WITH FINALS!!!

uh oh! someone made a huge mistake! Happy BELATED birthday to our favorite shoe Colin "RoboClon" Ford class of 2019. Colin can be found curing world hunger, by simply ignoring the problem (the best thing to do sometimes). Colin is a cheese enthusiast and has spent his past 18 summers in the French country side cultivating his own herbs (for ze fromage) and cows. Colin Ford has created a series of underground tunnels, what do you think the construction on campus is for? You won't catch him walking! Sometimes friends boink up and forget to make birthday posts, even when you tell them its your birthday. Oops!

Happy birthday to our favorite shoe, Bekah "Monkey" Smith '19! Bekah is abroad this semester, and a broad next semester! She won't see this message in a timely manner, but Bekah was never good at keeping time (she was the worst rockette).
We all miss her, but have been working on our Bork impression to keep up with THE borky-sporky.
Usually these things are funnier (we hope), but distance makes the heart grow and grow and grow till it explodes out of your chest.
Bekah, love you and miss you..... did we mention we love you??

Happy birthday to our favorite shoe, Henry "718-499-9191" Mai class of 2020. Today, Henry turns 19 (this seems too young, text and ask)! Henry is multi-facueted! He can fix a sports car engine, tend to a garden, and fix inflation in Venezuela. Besides that, Henry has many other accomplishments in just his 19 (seriously this is too young, DOUBLE CHECK) years on what is starting to feel like a sim city version of Earth. Henry can do a whole push-up (also double check) with a 10 pebbles on his back.
Happy birthday! Henry Mai

Happy birthday to our favorite shoe Gabe "Spaghetti Arms Bret" Dale-Gau, class of 2018! Gabe turns 21 (? Double check) today, however Gabe is an old soul. Gabe has spent the last 21(? Double CHECK) years perfecting his vaudeville act, and while it's not great something that Gabe is good at is turning raisins back into grapes. You think he would just go to the grocery store but whatever... Maybes it's because Gabe is a disgruntled grocery store heiress, he left the Buehlers manor after a maid spilt candle wax on his loafers. Totally unsolicited too! Happy birthday Gabe!

Happy birthday to our favorite shoe (and probably yours too), George Lancelot Marn! George turns I want to say 21 today, which is like a pattern at this point. George's name means "will definitely lose Patti Boyd to Eric Clapton", but let's not dwell on that and instead let's celebrate George! George is known for his hand made illustrated Atlas' of the world. He likes to make them the same way the old masters did, on dried out goat skins with berry juice! George is also known for his cameos in Law and Order, he plays a lawyer and also a more disgruntled lawyer. However, it's most important to recognize George for his hard work as service chair of his fraternity Zi Chai Latte. Friendly reminder that even though it's summer try to get those hours in!!!
Happy birthday!!! Lots of love George Marn

Happy birthday to our favorite shoe!! Ashkahn "Crashandburn/slowburn" Alikhani, class of 2018 (don't leave me), turns 12 today... wait... sorry... 21 today!! Yea, another shoe turns 21- it's getting kind of old. Anyway, besides living in Amy's birthday shadow we celebrate Ashkahn for his many achievements! Ashkahn, whose name means he who dog-ears books, is the youngest person in Maryland to ever smash 100 teapots. Wow, what a feat. His feet never stop dancing to the hottest beat! Bet you couldn't tell but that last bit was an excerpt from one of Ashkahn's famous slam poems. As Ashkahn would say "my poems are the rats happy feets", which to that we say "what". Happy birthday Ashkahn!
Peace love and peace! Love you Ashkahn Alikhani

Happy birthday to our favorite shoe! Amy "Aimless Hedgehog" Hagerdorn turns 21 today! For her 21st she plans to have a quiet night in, perhaps she'll watch Mamma Mia for the 12th time? Regardless you'll catch her wearing a leopard print bathrobe and peel off face mask! In honor of Amy today we recognize her many achievements like restoring Cloisonnism pieces (even though she thinks they're tacky) and her ability to fight a bear! Yes, a BEAR! It is horrifying yet erotic. Like cloisonnist pieces!
Here's to you Amy, happy birthday! Love and miss you shoe daddy! (FIRST SHOE TO TURN 21!!!! OH MY GOD! Everyone else who turns 21 this year looks so lame.)
