All's Well That Ends Well - Dryden

2:30pm, Thu 15th June 2017 - Sat 17th June 2017, at Trinity College Chapel
Easter Week 7

Applications to Produce and Assistant Direct

Looking for someone who's ON IT or who wants to prove themselves to be on it to produce this massively under-appreciated and underacted gem of Shakespeare's cannon - will involve basically being the factotum and super-slick handler of most things - because it's a short rehearsal time! But it won't be a super-complicated or expensive show so plenty of fun and cheap experience to be gained.

Also looking for one (or two, or three or ....) Assistant/Associate directors who want to do something worthwhile and full of fun in June - and who who want to turn up at least most of the time. Will involve helping with rehearsals, probably with line-learning (we won't have that long to rehearse) being helpful pairs of eyes for the tricky business of staging in Trinity Chapel, and so on.

- write with who you are, any (not necessary) experience you have, why you might wanna help with the play, if you know it and what excites you about doing it and anything else you can think of!

See in you in Trin Chapel.

Deadline: Tuesday 30th May 12:00pm

Can't Stand Up For Falling Down

7:00pm, Tue 10th October 2017 - Sat 14th October 2017, at Corpus Playroom
Michaelmas Week 1


Are you looking to get involved with a low commitment show? 'Can't Stand Up For Falling Down,' is conveniently placed in week 1 of Michaelmas term - so is a great opportunity to dive straight back into theatre fun after the long summer without it impacting your term too much!

I'm looking for a dedicated producer and a creative assistant director to help me bring this play to life. Through the medium of monologues, the play surrounds the story of three women, whose lives have been overshadowed by the abusive Royce Boland. It's a raw and poetic exploration of suffering, storytelling and solidarity.

If this is something you might be interested in please drop me (Imogen) an email (io238) outlining:
-Any experience you may have (none necessary.)
-Why you would be interested in producing or assistant directing this show.

And for prospective assistant directors please also include:
-how you see the relationship between director and assistant
-any creative ideas you have for a show like this one
-I'm also considering bringing some physical theatre into this piece so if you have any experience with this (or dance/choreography) let me know, although of course, this is not a requirement!

The assistant director will also need to come back to Cambridge a little early before the start of Michaelmas term to get rehearsals rolling! (The script is available online at dramaonlinelibrary if you want to have a peek before applying.)

Gypsy - CUMTS

7:45pm, Tue 31st October 2017 - Sat 4th November 2017, Venue to be confirmed
Michaelmas Week 4

Applications to PRODUCE and MUSICAL DIRECT

"Wherever we go
Whatever we do
We're gonna go through it together"

'Gypsy' follows ultimate showbiz mother Madam Rose as she desperately tries to force her two daughters, June and Louise, into a life of Vaudeville. Even as Vaudeville is dying in 20s America, Rose is determined that her kids will be stars of the Orpheum circuit -- just so long as she can convince everyone that they are no older than 9.

When June abandons the act to become an actress in her own right, Rose forces the less talented Louise to take her spot, desperate that one of her children should be a star. Rose finds herself in a theatre world which is caught between drab Vaudeville and sleazy burlesque, but how far is she willing to go to make her daughter the star she dreamed of?

'Gypsy' is a story about love, motherhood, ambition and drive, all brought together by Styne's phenomenal score and Sondheim's lyrical wit.

In your application please include:

Why you are interested in this project.
Any experience you have in producing.
How you would approach producing an ambitious ADC show.

In your MD application please include:

Why you are interested in this project.
Any experience you have in musical directing.
