Easter Week 7 to May Week
The Servant of Two Masters needs a PRODUCER!
Come and help put on this fantastically funny show, staged outside in the beautiful Master's Lodge Garden! Set in Cambridge in 1980, this production promises to be packed with fun, colour and disco fever...
Compared to other Cambridge shows, the producer role for The Servant of Two Masters is far less strenuous. It is also a completely different production to normal, staged outside with an picnic-eating audience, so it is a brilliant opportunity for people who want to gain experience in theatre-making.
Besides organising a technical team and managing the show's budget, the producer's main role will be to manage publicity: they will have a great deal of freedom for creativity here! This is your chance to create a publicity campaign in your own image, and your ideas and schemes are absolutely welcomed!
Just email email@example.com with an application including:
- Why you want to produce The Servant of Two Masters.
- What visionary plans you would have for a publicity campaign for a May Week show.
- Any commitments next term.
Deadline: Friday 23rd March 11:00pm

Applications To Direct / Produce 'STEVENAGE IS FOR LOVERS'

Long story short: Malcolm doesn't have a passport, Roger doesn't have a belly button and neither of them have any life skills. We are looking for A DIRECTOR an PRODUCER for our two week run. If you're interested, pop a little post it through our letter boxes (ep429 / ah914) just explaining a few things:
-How do owls move their heads all the way round?

-Why do you want to be involved in this show in particular?
-Shag, marry, kill (Malcolm, Roger, Andrew Lloyd Webber)
