Producer/director roles and show applications

Brian Cocks and Zavid Blowie: An Adventure Through Spacetime - CADS Panto - CADS

7:00pm, Tue 28th November 2017 - Fri 1st December 2017, at Christ's New Court Theatre
Michaelmas Week 8

Applications to Direct, Produce, Assistant Direct, and Assistant Produce

Applications are open for the production team of this year's week 8 CADS panto!

The year is 1978, and Christmas draws near. Brian Cocks, inter-dimensional twin of the physics documentarian, is about to take over the world. Only Zavid Blowie, Princess Leah, and the inhabitants of a poorly maintained student house in his way. Will they manage to defy the desires of the evil Cocks, or will the world instead be plunged into decades of horrifying neo-liberalism?

We need a director/producer team to bring this madcap play to life! Do you like surrealist Brechtian comedy? Do you like murderous pantomime horses? Would you like to be part of the only Panto with an official drinking game and a very relaxed attitude?

If you would like to be part of either the directoral or production teams, please send an email to Arthur Robijns (ar791) and Georgia Humphrey (gmh42) detailing which role you would be interested in, and what relevant experience you might have - absolutely none is necessary, and we are very keen for first years to get involved

Please note: some preference will be given to applications to Direct from Christ's students, given the play's connection to the college, but this will not be the case with any of the other roles

Deadline: Friday 20th October 12:00pm

Seduction: A Sketch Show For Lovers - Pembroke Players

9:30pm, Thu 9th November 2017 - Sat 11th November 2017, at Pembroke New Cellars
Michaelmas Week 5


The sexiest sketch show that ever was is looking for a director to whip it into shape.

We are looking for someone to provide feedback/edits on our writing, and to help us polish the show from good to great (or at least bad to mediocre). This will be reasonably low commitment, as you will only be required to attend rehearsals in about the 7-10 days before the show.

You do not need experience in sketch comedy specifically; it's great if you do, but we would welcome applications from people with different experience/perspective from our own, looking to try something new!

We would also particularly encourage applications from BME directors.

To apply, e-mail with:

1. Why you want to be involved

2. Brief summary of experience (if any)

3. Your best dating tip (if any)

Deadline: Saturday 21st October 11:45pm

White Guy On The Bus - Pembroke Players

7:00pm, Tue 21st November 2017 - Sat 25th November 2017, at Pembroke New Cellars
Michaelmas Week 7

Applications to Associate Direct

White Guy on the Bus is looking for BME Associate Directors!

White Guy on the Bus deals with the portrayal of race relations in contemporary America and as such we're looking for enthusiastic directors to act as consultants and advisors for the play! As this is absolutely vital to the show, the process will be slightly more intense than the normal associate role. We'd be looking for you to come to the readthrough, workshops and the majority of the rehearsals.

No experience is necessary, if you're interested send an email to or if you have any questions let me know!

Deadline: Saturday 21st October 11:59pm

CUMTS Christmas Cabaret 2017: 12 Days of Christmas - CUMTS

11:00pm, Fri 1st December 2017 at ADC Theatre
Michaelmas Week 8

Applications to Direct and Assistant Musical Direct


We are looking for people to Direct two or three numbers in our Christmas Cabaret: 12 Days of Christmas. No experience is required and this will be a great opportunity to try your hand at directing small musical scenes, especially for anyone who wants to get involved in the bigger musicals next term. Depending on how many numbers you take on, the commitment will vary, but the majority of rehearsals will be throughout November.

Please send applications to James at, and include the following:
- Any directing experience
- Why this show appeals to you
- Your general availability in November

We are looking for an AMD to play for a number of rehearsals, which will run throughout November. No previous AMD experience is necessary, but you must be confident with sight-reading and playing piano, as you will be required to play a range of songs for rehearsals and runs of the show. As our MD will be busy around the middle of November, you may be asked to lead the musical side of some rehearsals, but the majority of songs will be learnt in the early stages, so you will mainly be playing for choreography/blocking rehearsals.

Please send applications to James at, and include the following:
- Any musical directing experience (none required)
- Your piano skills and experience
- Why this show appeals to you
- Your general availability in November

Feel free to email me (jd680) with any questions/queries.

Deadline: Sunday 22nd October 11:59pm
