HOLA CHIC(PERSON)S

I’m writing this on Thursday but won’t send it til Sunday. Honestly I feel like some sort of spy. Anyways, another week passes swiftly by in the course of our course. Ahh. The sweet smell of sweet, sweet work. Sweet.

We have several messages from other people this week, and I, the lowly messenger, merely facilitate the passing on of this information. But we do have a few cool, trendy and glitteringly groovy volunteering opportunities as well as workshops and other such vibing activities. Do continue…

GOOD MORROW SWEET FRIENDS

The day of the drama email, as it does once a week, has dawned. But unfortunately it’s a day late. Oh well.

We open this week with a huge congratulatory CONGRATULATIONS to the casts and crews of FREAK and the Women, Power and Politics extravaganza. FREAK raised £375 for Rape Crisis so massive round of applause, WPP sold out 2 days in advance (whaaaa!!) and both made audiences think about v important issues. They were also both AMAZANG and funny and powerful and darn good and many more descriptive words to describe their excellence.

To continue, we have a PLETHORA of riveting infoz so do read on!! Happy week friends.

Many plays many design things

HI FRONDS

I’m Hannah, your new, slightly less grammatically-correct Livvy, and I’m here to give you all lots of news about how to have extra fun with your drama friends! And probably include some #inappropriatelyplaced hashtags! Wooooo what a year we're gonna have.

We have a brand spanking new committee, raring to go with fresh, funky faces. Thought you might like to have a wee peer at those faces, fresh and funky as they are, so they are pictured below! Also included is some extra bonus info about each person, most of which is fully based on nothing but the truth.

This fun stuff is then followed up by information about FRESHERS PLAYS and BIDS FOR THESE. Bids are now OPEN so please have a wee look if you're interested (or even if you're not incase you might be because who really knows in these turbulent times).

Also take a peek at the super-useful AND trendy (wow) LINKS I have included at the end because these are both useful and trendy (I know, wow).

But, to commence, THE COMMITTEE!

Bye-bye Now!

E-mail sent by Hannah Parker, Saturday, 10th June 2017 @ 4:56pm

Let me preface this email by admitting that I am writing to you now under false pretences, since as of 00:00 this morning, or rather MIDNIGHT last night I, Livvy Perrett, ceased to be your Secretary.This email should have been sent out yesterday, but in true Livvy Perrett style I neglected my duties in favour of patronising drama society's favourite UCL bar (in many ways, I consider drinking in Phineas my the true mainstay of my secretarial responsibilities)

I think it's fair to say I have been a sloppy secretary. Yes, I have made typographical errors. Yes, I was very lazy about checking the society email account. Yes, I was rebuked for using this email to canvass votes before the last AGM. But whatever mistakes I have made I like to think I carried them off with charming panache and zingy wit, always remembering to use the correct plural form of 'addendum'. If nothing else, my grammar. Is. Always. Faultless.

Thank you for your patience and to all those who expressed appreciation for my weekly electronic epistles. I'm sure you will be delighted/horrified to hear that although I am vacating this position I will remain present in the society in the role of External Coordinator for the academic year 2017/18. Brace yourselves.

LAST WEEK OF SHOWS

E-mail sent by Hannah Parker, Monday, 5th June 2017 @ 5:50pm

It's the last week of term and it's also the last week of our term 3 shows! Never fear though, Drama continues to look forward to next year and the summer ahead with opportunities at Edinburgh and for our 2018 Shaw show detailed below...

E-mail sent by Hannah Parker, Sunday, 28th May 2017 @ 7:19pm

I'm so busy trying to decide how to accessorise my outift for the Arts Ball that I can't even think of anything to put in the introduction to this email. Just read it, I guess.

DEADLINES

E-mail sent by Hannah Parker, Friday, 21st April 2017 @ 10:03pm

Yes! Fast approaching deadlines! And I'm not just talking about all the essays and revision you may (or may not) have been wading through these past weeks. No, no, these deadlines are far more fun and far less tear-jerking. See below for deets about the imminent crypt and quad play deadlines, and also a little extra something from our Edinburgh teams.
