BoomRoasted Productions is the student-run theatre company on campus. They were established in 2013 and have only grown since then.
The club, consisting of both theatre-majors and non-theatre majors alike have successfully put on two full length musicals within the last two years. Both shows, RENT, and The Addams Family, were very well-recieved.
Aside from the musicals, BoomRoasted also holds events such as a Karaoke night, which occured earlier in the semester. Other events include the Haunted Wilson Tour.
Club President Nicholas Zaccario said, “Every year is a different theme for the tour, this year’s theme is famous movie monsters. We’re very excited and its always a great experience.”
BoomRoasted members write original scripts for the tour, buy the costumes and props, and do their makeup themselves.
Last year the club teamed up with the Student Activities Board. The club is also involved in many other events, such as The Vagina Monologues and the fall musical. Many members have been cast in this year’s production of Spring Awakening.
Chair of the Department of Philosophy, Religion, & Interdisciplinary Studies, and professor of communication Don R. Swanson said, “ I’ve seen the shows in the past and they are really enjoyable and their hard work shows.”
While the club has not arrived at a decison on what this year’s musical will be, BoomRoasted Productions also has other events such as their annual Theatrefest, which showcases the writing, acting and directingtalents of its members.
Both the musical and the four day festival is written, produced, and directed and cast all by members.
Kim Kallok, a junior political sciene major and member, said, “I love this group because we have the same passion and are all so close.”
This club is open to all students with a passion for performing and a willingness to get involved. For information please contact club president Nicholas Zaccario at email@example.com.
