Cambridge University Musical Theatre Society posted: BUY TICKETS: https://www.adctheatre.com/whats-on/musical/assassins/ "And all you have to do is squeeze your little finger. Ease your little finger - you can change the world." A darkly humorous blend of fiction and history, conspiracy and truth, Stephen Sondheim's Assassins depicts the disturbing lives of the nine individuals who have attempted to or successfully assassinated American Presidents. Feeling betrayed by the broken promises of their ideal nation, they decide to strike out against its ultimate symbol: the President. From John Wilkes Booth to Lee Harvey Oswald, the rules of time and place are bent as these disillusioned misfits meet, interact and inspire each other to harrowing acts in the name of the 'American Dream'. This funny yet bleak "revusical" combines lyrical ingenuity with multiple musical styles to explore the perverse motivations and characters behind these history-defining acts.

A darkly humorous blend of fiction and history, conspiracy and truth, Stephen Sondheim's Assassins depicts the disturbing lives of the nine individuals who have assassinated, or attempted to assassinate, American Presidents. Feeling betrayed by the broken promises of their ideal nation, they decide to strike out against its ultimate symbol: the President.

Cambridge University Musical Theatre Society posted: PRESENTING your bar night host for this Monday's MISCAST bar night... the incomparable Ashleigh Weir! 'Ladies, Gents and People of and/or in Cambridge, boy am I excited to be your host for this term’s first bar night! The theme is miscast and NO that DOESN’T mean we’re shipping over Pierce Brosnan and Russell Crowe to heave their way through songs they should never have sung in the first place. We’re cutting loose from convention and throwing type to the wind. Forget age, gender, physical appearance and tradition, if it can be sung it MUST. Buckle your seatbelts, it’s going to be a belter. As a bar night regular, CUMTS show veteran, Footlight and all-round musical theatre nerd I cannot wait to try my hand at hosting. Hey, I might even do a little ditty myself you lucky little vol-au-vents. Oh just before you go, YES that IS me on the back of the ADC brochure so... all I’m saying is that I’m on the up and you should probably try to catch me now before I get too famous.* See y’all there m’lovelies.' *stressed, deranged and unable to face the light of day or public eye. Tickets are selling like hot cakes so get them now before they go! GO GO GO https://www.adctheatre.com/whats-on/musical/musical-theatre-bar-nights/

Downing Dramatic Society posted: Downing Dramatic Society presents The History of American Pornography by Hilary Bettis 7:30pm, Fri 8th February 2018 - Sat 10th February 2018, at Howard Theatre, Downing College Lent Week 3 ”Deep Throat IS the future of freedom of speech.” Star Papazian is having her 40th birthday, finally ready to lose her virginity. However, before she can get down to business she must deal with the past. Moving through her life from late sixties to present day Star recounts the rise and fall of her parents’ porn emporium, Dolls and Stripes. More than just a business, the porn industry is both a family and a cause to the Papazians. Through her growing pains, Star bears witness to how the market takes its toll as what had started from free-love-free-body struggles against the tide. Definitions of private and public, personal and published blur. Combining documentary and fiction, The History of American Pornography shows how people and their bodies are consumed. No one remains unchanged.

Downing Dramatic Society posted: **** TICKETS ON SALE NOW **** https://www.adctheatre.com/whats-on/play/rêver-peut-être/ Downing Dramatic Society and Cambridge University French Society present Rêver Peut-Être by Jean-Claude Grumberg 9:30pm, Tue 6th February 2018 - Sat 10th February 2018, at Corpus Playroom Lent Week 3 Gérard B. is arrested for the murder of Polonius - a murder he committed in a dream. From reality to absurd, ‘Rêver,Peut-Être’ is a schizophrenic dance into B.’s deepest fears and fantasies. As part of the Month of International Theatre, the French society will be proposing this original and immersive show - on the brink between typical French absurd and experimental theatre. The play promises to be a visual and aesthetic experience suited for a non-French-speaking audience. Between dreams and reality all the characters of this sometimes fantastical play coexist, evolve and become obsessive. Rêver Peut-Être is an absurd comedy with a plethora of references to Hamlet: it addresses the unconcious, the desire for revenge, the dangers of arrayed justice, the absence of the father and perhaps more than anything the schizophrenia of the actor.
