Hinman Production Company

Spring 2016 Newsletter

Our very first newsletter

We are so happy to be starting this tradition! We care about all our members - alumni included - so we want to make sure everyone stays in the loop. We plan on sending out one update a semester, to share our major accomplishments with the people who care about them most. We hope you enjoy!

What a fun and successful semester we have had!

Although HPC has been around since 1979, this year was our first as an officially Student Association-chartered organization! We are very excited about our new placement under the SA, and still maintain our strong relationship with Hinman by regularly attending Hinman College Council meetings and collaborating frequently with the Hinman community.

As per tradition, our main focus was putting on two full-length productions this semester.

Our straight show was "Rumors," by Neil Simon and our musical was "Company," with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim. Both were absolute hits - Company even had record breaking tickets sales, selling out all four performances!

24 Hour Theater

We continued our four year old tradition of putting on a show in just 24 hours! After receiving a setting and theme on Friday night, the writing team cranked out a script before dawn, and handed it to the actors. The show was cast immediately and rehearsal began around midnight and continued throughout the day. All the while, the tech team was hard at work transforming the unique vision into a reality. Finally, on Saturday night, our exhausted (and exhilarated) actors put on two performances, while the rest of us watched our creation come to life.

You're invited! Showcase HPC of Past and Present

Last year, we had our very first showcase, featuring HPC members putting on any and all theatrical performances. Among individual acts were musical theater songs and scenes from plays, but we welcome any creative theater ideas you can come up with!

We are so excited to invite ALUMNI to come participate in our show! We would be thrilled if past HPC members would come in for this event to perform, bond and reminisce with us!
