  • Lube: “this shows gonna be soooo good, just saying”
  • *Daria: *the earliest charly wants anyone is august 24. find out if dorms are open then? if not, there are enough people with houses.


  • Andrew = magic. and amazing. Huge audiences too!
  • there was a brazilian show the day we had this meeting.
  • Upcoming week: music installation. not sure about let-ins yet. same on-call thing as with Arvid. this show will be soothing and quiet, shouldn't interfere with rehearsals.
  • Reservations opened on Tuesday. 5 people emailed Rose.
  • One slot still open: Sept 1-6. hm, this is before classes start Elliot says. *Alana* will advertize for this slot in the weekly email, but we agree it's a difficult slot to fill.


  • Front door was sticky, back door broken
  • Front trash is rank. *Lelio *will call his mom.
  • No sprite in the Temple. *Lelio *will plea with the gods.
  • Fridge = gross. Daria took bleach to it. It's still gross. And slowly

freezing itself to death. Mazer might have one. Albert might too, but we reject his. Gross.

  • Drew is bringing us some furniture. We establish the Drew Madden Couch Fund

(D.M.C.F.) yeah, say that five times fast Todd!

  • Brown New Music has a sweet concert on May 18. They will be performing the piece she wrote her thesis on. Could they borrow costumes/props? yes, we say

  • need: drill bits, wrenches, tarp, no balloon (says james), re-threader, trunion screw. they will look at the slab of wood in the shop.

will dress up like we're going to prom. hoorah! and we did! and let me tell you, the food was soo good!

  • We sort of cross off 6 flags…. sad…

  • When we announce second slot proposal dates we will tell people that they have to have rights beforehand. Either the mentor/ rights person if we make it a job gets rights, or if the show wants to do it they can. But we have to have proof.
  • second slot mentor: if there's not one already = Maxer. yep.
  • Park play copies: we will pay the full amount. We debate whether to make Drew pretend that we are only paying 100. we decide to not pretend.
