On Monday I attended the general meeting for Blue Devil
Productions (BDP) to learn more about the organization. I found myself really enjoying my time there and having a lot of fun. After the meeting, I met with Anna Haggerty to ask some more questions about BDP.
My interview with BDP
What is BDP’s goal or mission statement?
The goal of BDP is to provide fun campus entertainment for on and off campus students and community members. We also strive to offer safe and fun alternative activities for students.
Who are BDP and what do you do?
BDP is a group of 10 board members and volunteer members. Our job is to create events, book acts, promote the acts, make sure the events run smoothly and survey the students for ideas and opinions about future events.
We plan and run the free movies, comedy shows and concerts. On top of the weekly entertainment, we also plan the (student) homecoming events and help come up with the theme. We also team up with other organizations to put on other big events.
Why should students get involved with BDP?
BDP is a family, you make really close friends and we have a blast. It’s also another fun way to become involved with music and provide a fun time for others.
How can students become involved with BDP?
Everyone is welcome to come to our general meetings every Monday at 6 p.m. in the Birchwood Room of the Memorial Student Center. You can also check out our website and social media accounts and come to our events.
How does BDP benefit the students at Stout?
We provide campus entertainment for everyone in the community, and it’s a short escape for anyone stressing over classes or in need of a break from homework. It’s also a great time to meet new people and to create a more diverse group of friends.
Are there any big events coming up this semester?
There are a bunch of really exciting events happening this semester. On February 9th, Kel Mitchel from Nickelodeon and the “Good Burger” (movie) will be here for a standup comedy show. That will take place in the Great Hall of the MSC at 8 p.m. There will be a big EDM concert in the Great Hall on February 18th at 8 p.m., featuring JACKAL. Also, on April 22nd at 6 and 9 p.m., there will be a showing of the new “Star Wars” movie in Applied Arts 210.
