50 minute R & J Open Dress

We're going to be having a preview performance/open dress for 50 Minute Romeo and Juliet on Sunday 3/8 in the Spiegel at 3p. Could you send an email to let the department know? This will be the only chance for folks to see the show if they cannot make the Monday night performance. 

We also MAY have an invited dress on Saturday around 4:30p. We aren't going to really publicize this, so if you know of anyone, student or faculty, that can't make it to either Sunday or Monday's performance, let me know and I'll give them the details! 

Thank you!!

Do you want to see Sampson shave his head?

Hello all!

Do you want to see Nic Christopher, Noah Silva, and Sampson SHAVE THEIR HEADS?! Well, you’re in luck! Hofstra USITT presents to you: SHAVING THE WAY TO CINCINNATI! 

In the drama and dance office you will find a donation jar, and in the lounge you will find a trifold progress board. Each space on the board represents 10 miles, adding up to 674 miles – the distance we have between Hofstra and the USITT conference in Cincinnati! We are hoping to raise $.50 per mile… and we have quite the incentive for you to donate:

If we raise $111 by February 14th, our president Nic Christopher will shave his head! If we raise $222 by March 1st, our vice president Noah Silva will shave his head! If we raise our total of $337 by March 11th, Hofstra’s very own SAMPSON will shave HIS head! Bills and coins are both accepted. Let’s work together to send USITT to Cincinnati and get Sampson to rock a ‘do!

***A shave will consist of a #2 cut with clippers

Thank you!

Hofstra USITT
