The beginning of the season always flies by, so I suppose I should not be surprised that this year is no different. As we head into production I want to take a moment to thank everyone who showed up this past weekend to audition. I’m thrilled to say that we have 26 actors working in the Fall Season with over a dozen more students involved in design and production work and we’re still looking for people to get involved. The Cap & Bells production teams, actors, and directors are already hard at work with our first production, The Pillowman, just weeks away and with Frosh Revue and Metamorphoses following closely on its heels. To everyone involved in those shows, quit slacking off. There’s work to do, and as always, there’s no time. No time!
Except for pizza. There is always time for pizza. The beginning of the season is also about making new friends, learning new faces, and pretending you remember the name of the person who you just met and have been talking to for the past five minutes. I’ve always worried that Cap & Bells is one of those huge groups in which almost none of the members know one another. I got to know the people in shows that I worked on, but other than that I feel like I’ve never had time to meet the team. Since I’m not involved in a show this semester, I’m feeling this more strongly than ever and I’m more stoked than ever to meet everyone who’s interested in being part of Cap & Bells this year. In order to treat my growing anxiety, the Cap & Bells Board will be hosting a pizza party on Wednesday September 21st at 5pm in the common room of Bryant A3. Because there is always time for pizza.
