Save the date for Equinox's Annual Meeting!

The meeting will be held at 2 p.m. on Saturday, June 9. (Location to be announced.)

The annual meeting will be a time to look back at what Equinox did over the past year, look ahead to Equinox's future — and, of course, elect new board members.

Anyone who wants is welcome to attend the meeting. You must be a member of Equinox to vote or run for the board. (Members are anyone who has contributed at least 10 hours of time or $50 to Equinox since June 2005.)

Five board seats will be up for election. (Some incumbents may be seeking re-election; some may not.)

Have you ever wanted to be on Equinox's board of directors? Now's your chance! You can nominate yourself (as long as you are a member). Or if you know of someone who should be on the board, make the suggestion, and we will ask them to run.

Nominees should submit their names to wej12(at)mac.com. Nominees are also asked to provide a short statement (recommended, but not required) about why they want to serve on the board or what their vision for Equinox is.

Voting will take place at the annual meeting. For those members who can not attend the annual meeting, absentee voting for board elections is allowed. (More info on that and more, coming soon!)
We're still looking for actors and perfomers to round out the cast of this year's Festival! A second round of auditions will be held this Thursday, March 29, at the VNA, 1110 Prim Road, Colchester, from 7-10 PM. Questions? Contact Amy at 999-8170 or amymills2@comcast.net

Equinox has been invited to participate in the "Broadway in Vermont" fundraiser for the Shelburne Art Center

This is a fun opportunity for us to show off Equinox — and the upcoming Green Mountain Renaissance Festival.

We will be developing a piece called "Renaissance Idol." (This was done a couple years ago at the Killington Renaissance Festival, before it became GMRF.) Instead of singing, "contestants" will recite a Shakespearean monologue. We will be combining original scripted elements with classic theatre! And, of course, we will be showing off the Green Mountain Renaissance Festival's gorgeous costumes and signature wit (with pop-culture references and sendups).

We need approximately four people to deliver monologues, plus three judges and a host. If you have a Shakespearean monologue you'd love to do, this is a great opportunity.

The fundraiser is the evening of Saturday, May 5. Other than that, the schedule should be pretty flexible. (It's designed to be an easy-to-rehearse piece and not require a large time commitment. So we'll probably meet as a full group 2-5 times.)

You are welcome to participate even if you are not in the full ren faire! If you want to participate, just comment here (or send me an e-mail), letting me what role (contestant, host or judge) and what monologue you'd like.

If there's a huge response, we'll have auditions. But for now, we're just looking for volunteers.

As with Nightmare, we're trying to use teh int@rw3bz to increase awareness of the Green Mountain Ren Fest. To that end, we've set up a channel on YouTube for the Festival. In addition to an official commerical and/or trailer for this year, we're also planning on adding a bunch of wacky videos.

1. If you have a YouTube account, it would be great if you could friend and/or subscribe to gmrfvt to make it look more popular. (heh heh)

2. If you want to help out with the video-making, contact me, Nada. My email is nada at lomag dot net. Acting, production, writing, design - whatever you want to do will be useful.

Thanks guys!

Auditions for The Complete Works of William Shakespeare, Abridged

Three guys, armed with lame costumes and the most creative use of props known to man, perform ALL of the Bard's works in this 90-minute hit comedy. Warning!: This show is a high-speed roller-coaster type condensation of all of Shakespeare's plays, and is not recommended for people with heart ailments, bladder problems, inner-ear disorders and/or people inclined to motion sickness.

Performances: at the Jericho Medieval Festival May 18 (evening) and 19th (day)
and at the Green Mountain Renaissance Festival July 21st, 22nd, 28th, 29th (days)

Seeking: Energetic, funny, experienced actors for the three roles in the show. Mostly looking for men, but will consider women. Priority will be given to those who can commit to all performances.

Rehearsal period: We will rehearse April 18- May 19th. Schedule is flexible, but rehearsals will be 3-4x's per week. Actors must study scripts before rehearsals begin. Three "brushup" rehearsals will occur in July before the 21st.

Auditions: Saturday March 3rd from 1-3pm at the Visiting Nurse Association. YOU MUST PRE-REGISTER. Please contact the director, Jana Beagley, at 872-0134 or email beagleyj@yahoo.com to register for auditions. The director will gladly audition by appointment if you can't make March 3rd.

Equinox Theatre Company and acclaimed playwright Maura Campbell are debuting her new play, "Self Evidence," starting Thursday (Feb. 8) at the Waterfront Theater in Burlington and running this weekend and next weekend. The play tells the story of a famous Vermont murder case dating to the mid-1800s, and also examines the role of women in society.

We need your help!

We're looking for volunteers to work the ticket booth and serve as ushers for each performance. In exchange, you will receive one free ticket for that night's show (an $18 value!). We need two ticket sellers and two ushers for the following performances: Feb. 9, 10, 11, 15, 16, 17, and 18. The work involved is, well, selling tickets, or taking tickets and handing people their programs. Pretty simple stuff.

Curtain is at 7:30 p.m. for each show except the 11th and 18th, which are 2 p.m. Sunday matinees. Ticket sellers should plan to arrive one hour before curtain, and ushers half an hour before the performance.

Just think: At $18 a ticket, your hourly "wage" would be between $18 and $36! Now we're talkin'!

If you can volunteer, please call Kevin Collins at 802-373-3322 as soon as possible.

Again, to volunteer, call Kevin Collins at 373-3322.

Thank you!
