Change the BFA Main Stage Play Spring 2018

For the Spring 2018 BFA MainStage Play, the AMDA production department has decided to produce The Time of Your Life by William Saroyan. This poses a few problems with the students.

1. While there are many roles in this show, it is a dominantly male-heavy cast, with many characters that cannot be gender-bent. There tends to be more females that audition for the plays, so there should be an equal amount of each or more female roles.

2. This play has already been performed at AMDA. In the fall semester of 2015 (which means a performance date in January of 2016, just 2 years ago), the play was presented as the staged reading of the semester. So while there are many possible plays that could be produced, the production department has given the go ahead to recycle a play that some students that are currently enrolled have already seen or performed in at this school.

 The productions at this school are here to serve us, to give us a sample of how the entertainment industry operates. If we're doing the same show multiple times, does it really serve us?
