Producer/director roles and show applications

The Satyricon - Pembroke Players

9:30pm, Tue 21st November 2017 - Wed 22nd November 2017, at Pembroke New Cellars
Michaelmas Week 7

Applications to Produce

Applications are now open for The Satyricon (Week 7 Pembroke Lateshow), which promises to be one of the most ambitious productions the cellars has ever seen!

The Satyricon is an obscure and fragmented prose work from the 1st century AD following the misadventures of Encolpius and his lover Giton, and their encounters with a whole host of bizarre characters from across Roman society. This production will aim to replicate the freewheeling decadence of the original text in a fun and contemporary way, with a large ensemble cast, lashings of visual weirdness and a kickin' soundtrack.

We are looking for a producer! Someone ideally with a bit of producing experience, but this is by no means necessary. As well as managing budgets and what have you, there's also potential to contribute creatively. When writing your application consider how you may go about publicising the show!

Any questions or if anything is unclear, don't hesitate to email me at!

Deadline: Sunday 30th July 5:00pm

We are looking for a Producer and a Musical Director to bring this fantastic show to life in November! This Freshers' show is a brilliant way to gain experience and put on a wonderful show in the process!

To apply, email an application to Jonatan Rosten on as soon as possible, including what role you are interested in and why, as well as any relevant experience (you don't need to have directed/produced/MDed before, but any experience acting/organising/orchestra is interesting).

CU Show Choir presents City of Stars

11:00pm, Mon 27th November 2017 at ADC Theatre
Michaelmas Week 8

Applications for Musical Director of the CU Show Choir!

Do you love insane mashups, amazing harmonies and cheesy dance moves?? We're looking for an enthusiastic, dedicated and fun individual to be the Musical Director for the current national champion Show Choir for 2017/18. This includes our Michaelmas and Lent shows, and our national competition in March.

The MD role responsibilities include leading rehearsals twice a week, assigning solos, overseeing the set list, ensuring arrangements are completed and appointing a show band. Since this can be busy at times, we welcome applications for Co-MDs or an MD with AMD(s). Usually we would appoint an MD from within the choir and the MD tends to perform with the rest of the choir, however this is negotiable.

We're ideally looking for someone with enough musical knowledge to be able to teach harmonies, but there's no need to be able to actually play piano. Those who don't like Beyoncé need not apply.

Please send applications to Elaine Duncan at with a couple of sentences saying why you want to be involved, any previous experience etc. by the end of the month. Please send any questions the same way!

Deadline: Monday 31st July 11:00pm

Moscow, 1938.
A dangerous place to have a sense of humour; even more so a sense of freedom. Dissident playwright Mikhail Bulgakov has both, despite being stalked by the secret police. Inspired by historical fact, Collaborators embarks on a surreal journey into the fevered imagination of the writer after he’s offered a poisoned chalice in exchange for freedom: write a play glorifying Stalin to celebrate his sixtieth birthday. Help is at hand, however, when the dictator himself decides to help out in the writing of the play – and Bulgakov takes over the running of the Soviet Union!

‘Collaborators’ is both hilarious and surreal, charting an artist’s slow erosion of principle and certainty involved in collaboration as he is confronted with the steamroller of absolute power.

Deadline: Friday 11th August 6:00pm
