Lady Margaret Players

The Lady Margaret Players is the St. John’s College performing arts society. We aim to encourage all Johnians to take part in performing arts; whether that participation be acting, singing, dancing, helping backstage, designing sets, operating lighting or simply coming to watch our performances.

The Divinity School makes a wonderful performance space. Our professional lights and staging in this venue create a most atmospheric setting.

Whilst The Lady Margaret Players is committed to supporting those who wish to pursue a career within the performing arts world or take the hobby to a higher level, we are equally keen to encourage participation of those who do not have the time or desire to get involved in productions on a University wide level.

Non-Johnians are also welcome to get involved in LMP productions.

Lady Margaret Players posted: Techies, you fabulous creatures, boy do we have a vacancy for you. ADVERT FOR LIGHTING DESIGNERS && SOUND OPERATORS. All levels of experience welcome. "It is the near yet distant future. A rather treacherous apocalypse has occurred and in an underground bunker that looks a lot like the Corpus Playroom, two semi-feral street urchins have, for the very first time, opened their blast doors to the public!" Think strobes, psychedelia and disorientation. Think the apocalypse as never before imagined. If any of this sounds interesting or appealing and you have even the smallest curiosity for lighting or sound design please check out our advert and email km645 more information. Riss Obolensky && Henry Wilkinson && myself will make it a fun one - guaranteed.

Applications are now open for: Producer Technical Director Assistant Director Assistant Producer Stage Manager Publicity Set Design Lighting email "Loot" by Joe Orton ‘Has anyone ever hidden money in a coffin?’ ‘It never crossed anybody’s mind.’ ‘It’s crossed mine.’ As so ensues a black comedy full of truths, lies and intrigue. Bank robbers Hal and Dennis are desperately trying to get away with their crime, whilst Hal’s father McLeavy mourns the death of his wife, unaware of the scheming advances of her nurse. As the Hal and Dennis start to feel the police closing in the coffin in the corner seems to look more and more convenient… Orton’s comedy is entertaining and witty, but subtly mocks the law and the Englishman. This production will be directed by Candace Graham in the main lecture hall of the Divinity School at St John’s, in the first few weeks of Easter term.
