Brickhouse Theatre Company- BTC
Brickhouse Theatre Company is the resident theatre company of Robinson College, Cambridge. Every year we hold at least five productions in our two wonderful venues: the well equipped 230-seater Robinson Auditorium and the beautiful outside amphitheatre, the Maria Björnson Theatre. We also help fund shows in other venues around Cambridge and at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
Recent Brickhouse shows have included: 'Back to the 80s', 'Jerusalem', 'Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat', 'Songs for a New World', 'Cymbeline', 'Jesus Christ Superstar' and Barber's 'Vanessa'. Every year we also host the Gilbert and Sullivan Society's freshers' show and accommodate for the performance of new student writing, which in the past have included 'The Losters' and 'The Connection'. On top of all this, Brickhouse hosts regular comedy nights in Robinson's Red Brick Cafe/Bar.
Applications for show funding, or to direct a show in either of our two venues, are always welcome. We are also keen to here from people interested in getting involved in other aspects of the theatre, from light and sound and set design, to front of house. While we will advertise for specific projects, please feel free to apply speculatively using the application form available on our website: www.brickhouse.soc.srcf.net.
Brickhouse remains very open to members of other colleges and responds positively to all interest expressed. Feel free to get in contact at any time, whatever your interest or experience!

Brickhouse Theatre Company posted: The second show we are funding at the fringe is Peter Gill's 'Certain Young Men'. Certain Young Men is a sensitive, inventive look at contemporary queer relationships, and the ways in which they are represented, performed and perceived through the eyes of mainstream discourse. This production adopts a queer perspective, and employs gender bending to further the already philosophical, hilarious and performative poignancy of Peter Gill’s writing. Check out some of the cast photos from a recent photoshoot in Cambridge, and be sure to like the Facebook page to be kept up to date with the latest show information: https://www.facebook.com/CYM.fringe/ CERTAIN YOUNG MEN Monday 21st - Saturday 26th August, 9pm TheSpace @ Venue45 Edinburgh Fringe Festival
Brickhouse Theatre Company posted: We are very excited to be funding two fantastic shows at this year's Edinburgh Fringe Festival! The first is an original musical by Elspeth Collard and Rebecca Rebis: 'Don't Ever Change'. Four old school friends – Ella, Cathie, Robyn and Sal – reunite at a bar to reminisce about the good old days. However, Philippa, the fifth member of the group, is noticeably absent; upon discovering her old diary, she decides to do some reminiscing of her own. Over the course of the evening, we rediscover the group’s school days and watch as their friendships become increasingly fractured, as arguments over schoolwork, the pressure to fit in and their complicated love lives tear apart even the closest of friendships. As these arguments work their way into the present day, we are left to wonder – do people ever really change? 'Don't Ever Change' is a brand new musical about memories, heartbreak, and, above all, friendship.
