Backstage Tour of Avenue Q at November Guild Meeting

At the November 5 Theatre Guild meeting, we will be escorted on a backstage tour of the Avenue Q set including a cast member presentation describing what it is like to handle puppets and be in the show.  You won’t want to miss this opportunity to get a close look at the set and hear from cast and faculty.

The meeting begins at 6:15pm in the Theatre Classroom (147).  We have some important work to do at the meeting including:

  • Collect final Theatre Guild membership forms, tally the final results, and announce the Level that wins the field trip for the backstage tour of the Hobby Center.
  • Collect drinks, food, and cash donations for concessions:  please bring canned soft drinks, bottle water, chips in individual bags, individual microwave popcorn, or small cash donations for the concession stand.
  • Review the next Phase of the “Sound and Lights Desires” program to enhance the Black Box technical infrastructure.
  • Review status reports on the Greater Houston Area Auditions and the Middle School Theatre Workshop.

Welcome Back!

Welcome back for another year of HSPVA Theatre!  The Theatre Guild is getting ready to support another great season of productions, events, and trips.

The first Theatre Guild meeting of the year will be  Wednesday, August 28 at 6:15 pm in the Theatre Classroom next to the Department offices (sometimes we end up moving – if we are not there, check the Rehearsal Room across the hall and the Black Box).  At our first meeting we will collect membership forms, elect officers, approve the budget, discuss the calendar, get our committees organized, and several other agenda items.  As always, a Theatre Guild meeting is great place to get all your Theatre Department questions answered.

Our Meet and Greet Party will be Monday, September 2 (Labor Day) from 5:00pm to 7:00pm at the home of David and Dena Linda:

5135 Glenmeadow Houston, Texas 77096

Please bring an appetizer or a dessert to the party.  Dress is casual.

Here is a Google Map Link to the Linda’s home.

You can submit your Theatre Guild membership at our first meeting, at the Meet and Greet, or by dropping your form by the department office.  The Theatre Guild Membership Form can be downloaded from the Join the Guild  page located under Guild Info or click here.  If you have any questions about membership, contact our membership coordinator:

October Theatre Guild Meeting!

The October HSPVA Theatre Guild meeting will be held Tuesday, October 2 at 6:15pm in the room next to the Theatre Department Office (or a bigger room if we can find one).  We will review all the events and projects that prepare our students for college auditions (the International Thespian Conference in Nebraska, Greater Houston Area Auditions, Showcases, summer programs) and raise funds for guest artists, Master Classes, upgraded technical equipment, and production expenses to augment our students’ experience.

There will be lots of sign up sheets with specific dates to select from – please bring your calendar. We will discuss the productions for this year and your student’s opportunities to collect Thespian points to build experience and membership as a Thespian. A faculty representative and student Thespian officer will be there to answer questions. To help you prepare, review the events and dates (right here on the on website) and bring any questions that you may have.

See you there!
