  • McGarty may have asked Allison out, but it might have been the second half of a simile, or a fig-like fruit.

Space Maintenance:

  • Alexio: (glances around) “Well, here it is.”
  • There are flies here. Jamesflies? Alexio says no, he’d recognize them. Maybe someone left food here. The board decides to blame James anyway.

  • Check!
  • Allison says the music department is having a piano moving day (!) and wants to know if we want another piano. (!!) Their tuner might want to buy PianoOnItsSide (!!!)
  • Who’s the piano person?
  • People think it’s Mazer but Mazer doesn’t think so.
  • Alexio says maybe Paul but Paul doesn’t think so.
  • We decide that Billy Joel is the piano man.
  • But who is the piano person? We decide to decide soon.

Next week’s meeting will be at 1:00pm



  • Hung up everything from the floor in the costume room! yay
  • But there’s no room for the new costume racks in the costume room, and no room for the actors in the dressing room.
  • Alexio: “Sarah MUST have had a plan for where to put them.”
  • …right?


  • Announces he has the answer.
  • To what, we wonder?
  • “The piano question,” he says!
  • “Oh!”
  • He says the piano person is: NO ONE.
  • Justin says no, that’s not the answer.
  • Mazer goes back to tapping his chin and trying to look discreet

Back to business:

  • Props room needs serious work.
  • Actually, most things do. We should have a cleanup day before DITS.
  • Maybe we’ll try to clean up a bit during the audition forum?
  • Furniture room needs total overhaul. Albert panics and says he received strict instructions never to throw anything away. I think Albert challenges Justin to a duel?

* Cleaning 2:00 Tomorrow!


  • Says an agenda item each week should be “fun” and every week someone different is responsible for “bringing the fun.” Mazer decrees that this will not be fun. Until he realizes we can try to hotbox the upspace. He volunteers to “bring the fun” next week.
  • What to talk about about at the theater orientation meeting: Audition forum/Day in the Space, 3C2C, 1st Slot, light hanging, 2nd slot, upspace, mailing lists, generate general excitement. Andrew says he’ll bring the excitement. Charly says no fire.
  • Justin and Alexio are writing a pwaq email! They have an outline. Will send it.
  • Speaking of lists, Paul will email the seniors and see if anyone wants to stay on the list.


  • Computer in the box office: hard drive is dying. It might not be with us much longer.
  • Alana will lend another dying computer to take its place until we catch a live one.
  • Allison is working on digitizing the archives. Archive people will do their thing.


  • Sunday series! Noon on Sundays. A different workshop/discussion topic every week, lure people into board meetings too.
  • Suggestions: Audition forums, directing forums, technical workshops, discussions of plays the week after they go up, etc.
  • Committee: Alana, Paul, Allison, Alex, Charly


  • Andrew is still working on fixing the orange ladder
  • Andrew will also hang up the truss part


  • Says there was something we were supposed to remember last year for the first meeting of this year. No one remembers what it is. Alexio remembers thinking that no one would remember.
  • We decide this is a good way to end the meeting.
