Applications to Direct and Produce

A troupe of Lords tangle with a swarm of mischievous fairies as they try to woo the much-desired Phyllis. However, Phyllis is in love with Strephon – half-fairy, half-mortal, a lowly shepherd and nephew of the Fairy Queen. When the pompous lords break up the happy couple, the fairies vow revenge. Installing one of their own, the hapless Strephon, in Parliament, they incite liberal rebellion. Frivolity ensues as lofty lords and feisty fairies collide in the ever bumpy road to love.

The CUG&S society is taking Iolanthe to the 25th international Gilbert and Sullivan festival in Harrogate in August and we're looking for a Director and a Producer to get this show started!

Madhouse

May Week Shakespeare applications

Madhouse are excited to be opening applications to direct and produce our annual, May Week Shakespeare play to be performed in the Medwards gardens.
This is a great opportunity to perform a play in a new setting, complete with its own unique benefits and challenges - last year saw the incorporation of flowers from the gardens into many of the props in a performance of Richard II.
If you love Shakespeare and nature, or just want a chance to explore a new venue, this is the opportunity for you!
Get in touch with us (through our facebook page or at eg504@cam.ac.uk) with what Shakespeare play you would like to perform, any ideas you have about how to incorporate the gardens into the play and any previous experience you have (none necessary).

Deadline: Saturday 10th March 11:00am
