  • will get keys at strike. Elliot (master carpenter!) will help with access to the space before then as needed.
  • The pw board will be able to email 1 reserve to Hannah Miller, though we will have a better idea of when next week when we pick ushers.


  • Are working on a PM. Sound designer- Alice Shay, Lighting designer- Todd, costumes- Chloe Paisley. They need a TD and assistants!
  • Are having production and design meetings this week, and a meeting with Sasha about auditions (probably early next week)
  • Emily Drumsta will call New Dramatists (Mikey P) to ask about rights and the latest draft of the script after Justin and Allison's run-in with a friend of the playwright at Saturday's Salome performance.

The Skin of Our Teeth:

  • Todd will email out the show packet, and Nick will send it to the staff and make sure they read it.
  • The show will definitely be September 22-25. Elliot/Brian will email out information about the rest of the calendar.
  • Turns out the “study break” rule doesn't apply to performances. So, Skin of Our Teeth= fine, Skin Power God = study break.
  • Need a costume designer. Will have a production meeting this week, and will send Blair a blurb for the email.
  • Will audition before the end of the month (after Melancholy, and no conflict with mainstage's Much Ado)
  • Dan will get one set of keys at the end of this year, and the staff will get the rest at the start of next year.
  • Dorms open the 31st or 1st, but we can come back a few days early – Todd will help arrange this.


  • Emily Pudalov is applying for a $50 grant to buy various hygiene/beauty products for her Fem Sex final project – a video about creating an androgynous body that will involve her applying these products to her naked body while she's upside down in a chair. Wow. The name Miranda July gets thrown in there.
  • She can give us a more detailed list of products if needed.
  • She'll know by next week's meeting.

  • The emergency lights turning on is something hardwired into the system, but someone's supposed to come look at them.
  • Will follow up this week on the induction lights.


  • tabled. Justin's word of the week: tuning.



  • Wants Better Than Dinner practice ASAP before Tuesday's game. Blair apologizes for missing it, invites the board to her panel presentation at 5.


  • how can we better help costume designers? Maybe tell them to start designing by looking at the capabilities of the costume shop. Also look for costume builders/master seamstresses as part of show staff. More help from PMs in setting and keeping specific deadlines.
  • Tara will look into the costs of a washer and drier.
  • The Attitude show wants an LD. It's in Salomon, and it will be paid.
  • Will find out more about the perks of joining the Student Union.
  • Is running for vice-chair of UFB and wants our support. Also wants help creating an UFBwiki. (said oof-bwiki)


  • don't know how it happened, but we need to pay those three Daily Jolt invoices (roughly $500 for three semesters)


  • will take the issue of ResLife always fighting us on housing to the dean/higher power. Maybe McGarty/Chris O'Neil could back us up. Note: MF and BOLT both are offered $25 housing flat fee. Tara will talk to Todd to get up to speed.
