    Lent Week 1

    Each year, the Marlowe Society offers an opportunity for actors to be directed by a professional, working director and to perform in the Cambridge Arts Theatre. The Arts Show, as it is known, has been a springboard for many careers moving beyond Cambridge.

    The show will be announced officially in September, but we can confirm that it will be a Shakespeare play.

    Auditions for this year's Arts Show will be held on Saturday, October 14, and Sunday, October 15. Rehearsals will start in December, pause over the Christmas vacation, and continue fairly intensely until
    the show, with actors remaining after the end of Michaelmas and returning before the start of Lent. Due to scheduling, actors will not be able to participate in both ETG and the Arts Show. The week of the show will require that actors are at the theatre all day for the majority of the week.

    Anyone interested in auditioning should prepare a 1-2 classical monologue, either of their choice or from among sides that will provided in the weeks leading up to the auditions. Sign-ups will go up in late September.
