Applications for CSW and Treasurer Now Open!

Thanks again for the absolutely fantastic show this year!
Now, we would like to announce that CSW and Treasurer applications are now open! If you would like to be the Chief Script Writer or the Treasurer for FASS 2016, you can now submit your application! Applications are due at 11:59 PM on Wednesday, February 25

Chief Script Writer

The CSW is in charge of writing the script that the company performs each year. This entails a lot of organization, because FASS has a crack team of Pullitzer-prize winning writers at its disposal and they all have different styles and humour, and someone needs to put them all together. The CSW is expected to hold meetings throughout the year, starting with the theme meeting before the Annual General Meeting (at the end of March or start of April), and going all the way until the script is done. The CSW has the final control over every aspect of the script—except the theme, which the whole company will vote on.

Treasurer

This glamorous position entails being in charge of all of FASS’s money. The Treasurer prepares a budget for Committee’s approval, writes cheques for expenses, ensures that all the spending fits in the budget, and then prepares a financial report to be delivered at the AGM. The Treasurer is very, very important to FASS’s continued existence!

Questions?

If you have any questions about these positions, you can talk to the current President Sean (prez@fass.uwaterloo.ca). You can also talk to Davenport, the current CSW (csw@fass.uwaterloo.ca), or Megan, the current Treasurer (treasurer@fass.uwaterloo.ca).

How to Apply

To apply, send an application to apply@fass.uwaterloo.ca. Your application should include your qualifications, why you’re interested in the position, and what you plan to do if selected. Your application will be circulated to the Committee for review, and then we will schedule you to come in for an interview. If you include your availability for evenings in the weeks of March 2 and March 9, that would greatly help us schedule the meetings. After interviewing all candidates, the 2015 Committee will pick the first new members of the 2016 Committee (and the first member of the 2017 Committee!).

Less than Two Weeks Until We Open!

Opening and closing numbers are coming together, costumes are magically appearing, and tech is ahead of schedule. It’s shaping up to be a great show: don’t miss it! You can get tickets through a cast/crew member or through the UW Theatre Centre Box Office. In the meantime, enjoy some great photos from Week 1’s rehearsals!

Talent is Optional, Audience is Needed!

FASS Theatre Company is bringing a fine company tradition to uWaterloo students next week with a Talent Optional Night next Wednesday night, October 29th, at 7PM in the Student Life Centre Great Hall, and you’re all invited!

Talent Optional Night is exactly what it sounds like: talent is optional! Anyone and everyone is invited to come up and perform whatever they want, even if you just learned today. Fancy yourself a singer or a poet? A rapper or a dancer? A comedian or an actor? Then we want you! Or you can partake in the most important role of all: that of an esteemed audience member!

If you’re interested in performing next week, please fill out this short form: http://tinyurl.com/fassbtbsignup

If you’re not interested in performing next week, please attend in the audience. While we do have a ‘captive’ audience with the Bomber line, we still need a real one! Come out and bring your friends. The more the merrier: we really need to impress everyone who shows up thinking they’re just going to a boring Bomber Wednesday.

Want to learn more? Check out the event!

We need you to help make this event successful! See you then!

Come Bomb the Bomber

That’s right, everyone, you heard it here first!

On Wednesday, October 29, at 7pm, FASS will be hosting a Talent Optional show in the SLC Great Hall.

What’s a Talent Optional night, I hear you say? (I have special Internet that lets me do that) Talent Optional is a fine FASS tradition! It’s basically a talent show, but talent is completely optional. The goal is to let you show off what you enjoy doing, and the rest of us aren’t going to make fun of you or tell you off or anything.

Everyone is invited, and everyone is welcome to participate! We’ll post details soon about how to sign up if you’re interested in performing. I promise you that I’ll be putting together something fun!

September 16, 2014

Hey everyone!

I’m Sean Hunt, the President of FASS. What you’re looking at now was going to be our amazing new website, until that no-good cape-wearing President fell sick, and wasn’t able to get what he wanted done. And now all of FASS, nay, the entire world! is suffering for it.

If you’re new to FASS, and you want to get involved, check out the links at the top of the page. If you want to get news about the show, you can subscribe to our mailing list. In any case, please follow us on Twitter @UW_FASS and join our Facebook page.

Anyway, with some help from wonderful FASSies, we’ve put together a site that covers what we need it to for right now. Expect good things to come! In the meanwhile, if for some reason you need to get at the old site, it’s still there.

Thanks for the patience!
Sean Hunt, President
