I hope you all have been enjoying your breaks and are ready for another exciting semester of Skull & Dagger. This Spring we will be producing Sophie Treadwell's Machinal
in the Don Powell. There will be an open call after Vinegar Tom
is cast, but we encourage all members to do the generals as well since the director will also be watching those. The show
will be cast no later than February 3rd and rehearsals are expected to begin February 20th (though there will be some meetings with individual actors before then). If cast actors are expected to be off book at the beginning of the rehearsal process. If you would like to obtain a copy of the script please email <firstname.lastname@example.org
>. There are many roles in the play and the director is planning on casting most actors in multiple roles (with the exceptions of the Young Woman, her lover, and Mr. Jones). The production will run April 5th-7th, meaning both Zanna, Don't!
will conflict. At this time those involved in Wish II
, The Vagina Monologues
, and Squawk
, will still be eligible for casting in Machinal
Also, the first Skull & Dagger meeting of the semester will be January 19th at 4:30pm, because Adrian Alita and Peter Cirino plan on doing a monologue workshop in the Don Powell at 5:00pm for generals (currently scheduled for Jan 23rd and 24th), all other meetings will take place Thursdays at 5:30pm in the green room.

-The Skull and Dagger Board
Hello all and welcome to the Skull & Dagger Dramatic Society. I have served this organization for the past two years as its treasurer, and during that time have watched it experience a grand rebirth. Knowing all that it is capable of, I am now honored to have the privilege to lead it. Throughout this year I would like to encourage students new and old to work together to create new and exciting Theatre Arts projects. Further, I would like to reach out to our fellow students in the Television, Film, and New Media Department. In the past our collaboration has been rather poor, and I know that if we work together we can bring out the best of all our members. Folks, we are faced with severe budget cuts and we must do all that we can to preserve the growth of student-based arts and activities now more than ever. We must take it upon ourselves to enrich our own educational experience, and make sure it is something we can take with us in the future.
-Nathan Bell, President

Hey everyone! The Spring semester is finally here! Today, all of us officers did some Spring cleaning in the Green Room (mostly organizing the closet) and touched up (and fixed) the Skull & Dagger cart. We found a lot of old Skull & Dagger memorabilia, even a Skull & Dagger photo album from 1995!
This semester, Skull & Dagger will mainly be focusing on our student production House of Blue Leaves, directed by David "Berlyn" Wieland. Stay tuned to our e-mails and meetings to hear about audition dates! Later on this semester, we'll also host our annual Night of Chaos. We have a lot to look forward to this semester! Can't wait to see you guys at the meetings this semester.
