-this is the lettre i've sent to the chair and other faculty member in the department followed by the CAST LETTRE.
i would like you inform you on the "wanta be" group ticket center.
it is now a live journal http://community.livejournal.com/theatretickets/profile
setted by jasa baka, sarah tracy and i and could be accessible to all students in the department.
because this may be a lot of work, i was wondering if it might be possible to have some support from the department through a work study position. it would be needed for the rest of this semester and would have to be assured for next year so we can undate it and check if it is a used tool for students. i'm thinking that 4 hours per week would be enough.
montreal has a facinating active theatre community and it would be important to get our students to access as many theatre events as possible for the lower prices in town.
the live journal would post all field trips to dress rehearsals, the prices reductions for theatre students in town, cast lettres, special events like a series of lectures and meeting with different active members of "le beau milieu". the groupticketcenter would also take reservations at theatre student group rates.
i'd like to talk about it and maybe include this idea on the agenda at the faculty meeting on monday 6th.
thanks for your attention!

"Criminals in Love"
Directed by DEAN FLEMING
Concordia University begins its spring season with Criminals in Love, directed by the new Artistic Director for Geordie Productions, and co-founder of ASM Productions, Dean Patrick Fleming.
Criminals in Love is set in a gritty east sub-division neighborhood of Toronto. Junior faces the uncertainties of his future, as a young man whose family members are involved in crime. His girlfriend, Gail, attempts to encourage Junior to seek a life beyond his dysfunctional family. However, as Junior strives to unlock his fate, his father forces him into a new dubious project. With his girlfriend and another friend as accomplices, Junior faces an internal struggle and the plot leads us to an unexpected twist of fate.
Criminals in Love is George F Walker's first play in the East End Chronicles series, which was awarded the Governor General's Award and the Chalmers Award. The East End Plays explore characters in an environment that define urban lifestyle and attitudes.

As part of the Concordia Association of Students in the Theatre - our mandate is clear - to support, maintain, and facilitate the development of initiatives undertaken by theatre students, alumnus, and faculty that provide unique opportunities to students currently enrolled in the five theatre programs offered at Concordia University.
As a club under FASA (Fine Arts Students A lliance, http://fasa.concordia.ca
) , we are allocated a club budget of 1,200$ a year - which we intend to spend every penny of. In the 2005-2006 school year, we are accepting project proposals from students wishing to do undertake various endeavours, which thanks to the FASA budget, as well as our own fundraising efforts, we hope to be able to partially fund. Furthermore, as a facilitating organization - we are here to help theatre students discover the various organizations they can approach in hopes of receiving funding. Our meetings for the winter semester are Wednesday at 4:05 in the CAST lounge (TJ 106) - everybody is welcome to attend our meetings- and if you would like to add something to the agenda, please send an announcement to the chair before the preceding Sunday at 8 PM.
In addition, as our listserve continues to grow, we are pleased to accept various short blurbs from theatre practitioners who are either seeking to promote an upcoming event or wish to have a call for designers/actors/directors/playwrights/s
tage managers/dramaturges. If you have something you wish CAST to send out in their newsletter, please send a short blurb to cast .firstname.lastname@example.org .
