I hope everyone had great summers!! The blog is under new management, woo!
Any-who, yesterday we had the first meeting of the fall semester. The e-board was dissolved, as we no longer have a com. director, and nominations were held. Nominations were also held for the vacant standing chair positions of Arts Fest, Fundraising, Histori, ODC and PR. We are also preparing heavily for the upcoming understudy process.
I encourage anyone who is thinking of joining and becoming an understudy to please do so!!! Believe me, you won’t regret it.
May the odds be ever in your favour,
First off, thank you to all who came out to see the fantastic show!
Another round of thanks goes to the actors and production peoples who helped make this a smashing success. Many people came up to me to give their reactions on the show. Many laughed. Some cried. But everyone was blown away on how APO’s finest took the script and gave such a human aspect to what is essentially a cartoon.
So, to Ryan, Brian, Nia, Amanda, Ben, Jenn, and Lauren: thank you for being such a stellar cast. It was a fantastic way to end the semester.
PS: Hopefully I’ll be able to get some pictures up soon, our Histori Melanie has some on her camera, and should send them soon.
Hello dear readers! Today, APO held our e-board elections. After speeches, deliberations, and quite intense grilling, we have new faces as well as old holding the reigns. President went from Ryan MacPherson to Brandon Muir. Vice President of Production has gone from Brian Hasbrouck to Ryan MacPherson. Vice President of Business went from Christine Malloy to Brandon Lodi. Communications Director was kept by Lauren Brett. Lastly, the Treasurer position has gone from Alyssa Bloomquist to Benjamin Gutwetter.
Congratulations to everyone!
And in other news, it’s only three weeks until Dog Sees God goes live! It’s crunch time people!
Members of Alpha Psi Omega who voted for Assassins as our fall musical will have to be slightly disappointed: because of high demand in the Boston area for the rights to Assassins, we will not be performing the Sondheim musical. Instead we shall be performing [Title of Show].
[Title of Show] is a one act musical, that comprises of four actors, as well as one keyboardist who contributes to the plot of the show. It is a very meta production that leans on the fourth wall quite often, as the plot is driven by the show being submitted into a contest; in other words, it is a musical about itself.
As the fall draws closer, more details shall be added.
Have a lovely evening,
Alpha Psi Omega’s spring show, Dog Sees God has begun rehearsals, and everything seems fantastic!
With Alec Harrington directing, the show is set to go on April 19, 20, and 21.
The play is a parody of the famous Peanuts characters, now teenagers dealing with issues common in high school such as drugs, sexuality, eating disorders, popularity, rebellion, and self-identification. The play is filled with nods and sometimes quite subtle references to the material it pays homage to. Keep an eye out for all the Easter eggs! While the subject matter may be serious, this is a comedy one is sure never to forget.
The cast for the show is as follows:
CB - Ryan MacPherson
Matt - Brian Hasbrouck
Beethoven - Brandon Lodi
CB’s Sister - Nia Fogelman
Van - Ben Gutwetter
Van’s Sister - Amanda Perrotti
Tricia - Lauren Brett
Marcy - Jennifer Balacuit
Tonight, on January 25th, we had the first APO meeting of the semester. This was the first meeting with the new members in their newly-elected positions.
We also for this semester will be not be in the Student Center. Our meetings will now be in the “1986 Room,” which is in LaCava.
We cannot wait to have auditions for our spring production, Dog Sees God.
We also have the Arts Festival coming up, which will feature short one act plays and other fun, nifty stuff.
Stay classy, folks.

Aw, aren’t we all so pretty - Phoebe Johnson, member, costume chair, and fashion connoisseur, called it the “best dressed pinning ever.” Many thanks to our former Communications Director, Madhu Narayan, for organizing the event and for making us very pretty ornaments, and to Katrina DeFrancesco, who provided the pictures.
