XMAS!8: The Creative Team


Christmas in August

Greetings, theater people and theatergoers!  We’ve got our first installment of arts news: the XMAS!8 Creative Team has been announced.

From the XMAS! crew, to the freshmen:

XMAS! is a completely student-written holiday musical show, serving as the fall musical comedy counterpoint to the spring’s Varsity Show. XMAS! is performed in Roone Arledge Auditorium on the final eve of classes (Dec. 9th) as an enjoyable and relaxing way of destressing before finals. Auditions will take place on Sept. 10, 11, and 12 from 8-11 PM in Hamilton Hall. Come prepared to sing a holiday song and display a special talent.

There were also be a CUPAL (CU Performing Arts League) Meet and Greet on Monday the 2nd at 5pm in the Wien lounge, for all of you interested in getting involved in the performing arts on campus.

And now, the XMAS!8 creative team:

Director: Sophie Solomon-O’Connell (BC ’15)

Producers: Jeremy Stern (CC ’15) and Renée Kraiem (BC ’14)

Writers: Eleanor Bray (BC ’14) and Bijan Samareh (CC ’15)
