The Satyricon

Adapted from the bizarre and fragmentary ‘Roman Novel’ of Petronius, The Satyricon will be a surreal and scandalous journey through the decadence of Nero's Rome, and a riotous piece of immersive theatre. We are looking for the following:

-Stage Manager
The show aims to be highly visual with staging, furnishings and music. We are looking for a SM who is capable of managing an immersive environment. Experimentation is encouraged. We want to place the audience within the centre of a symposium.

-Make-Up Designer
We are looking for a designer who is able to complement the historical costume bases with vibrant, anachronistic and unconventional alternatives. Think along the lines of the shared androgyny between Ziggy Stardust and the Ancient Greeks.

-Tech Assistant
A shadow to work alongside our Tech Director. Your job will involve shadowing the director and familiarising yourself with the sound and lighting in the Pembroke New Cellars. Sound and Light operations will be handed over to you on the second night.

Send in your applications to (al821@cam.ac.uk) or (elw60@cam.ac.uk) by 22nd September.

“It isn’t about being dead or not, it’s about what you leave behind”

Set in an unnamed totalitarian state, the writer Katurian finds himself in police custody after a gruesome series of murders bearing a remarkable similarity to his own stories have taken place.

"The Pillowman" is funny and painful (and not very pillow-like at all, really). I'm looking for a team that will be at least one, if not all, of those things.
...

No experience required at all for these roles! If you're looking for something low commitment and artsy, then this might be for you. I'd love to have a chat to see what your ideas are. Send me an email at al832@cam.ac.uk, perhaps with a few lines outlining what you'd like to do with the role. Happy to answer any questions too.

COLLABORATORS, week 7 Corpus mainshow, is looking for a PROD TEAM:


SOUND DESIGNER

The play has lots of settings created mainly through sound, lighting, and moving around set, plus dream sequences, plays-within-plays, and a subtly surreal atmosphere throughout. As a note, the script describes a rough overall set design that we’ll be mostly sticking to, but we’re still interested in modular set design or clever ways to shuffle an existing set to create new settings.

STAGE MANAGER

MOVEMENT DIRECTOR
The show features numerous unusual props, stage violence, and some sinisterly cartoonish chases featuring a certain 20th-century dictator.

COSTUME DESIGNER
Period costumes, plus some fairly strange costumes for 2 plays within the play. Plus, you get to make someone look like Stalin.

PUBLICITY DESIGNER
PHOTOGRAPHER
Looking for someone to design some Stalinist propaganda-style publicity for the show, and someone to take headshots and rehearsal photos. This can be the same person.



Get in touch with me (Chris Lazenbatt, cl629), the director (Charlie Morrell-brown, cm885), or the assistant director (Alfred Leigh, al821) on Facebook or by email to ask for more details about the show or a role. To apply, email us with the following: name, CRSID, any past experience (don’t worry if you don’t have any), and any ideas you have about your role. We particularly encourage female, BME, and LGBT+ applicants to join the team.

We are looking for someone with a bit of experience designing and operating lights and operating sound for a two-night run in Barnes, west London.

If possible, candidates would also be available on 30 October to get an idea of the venue and watch some rehearsals.

'Tristram Shandy' has played in London and Edinburgh before and received super reviews. It has also been great fun to put on in both locations. This is a very low priority commitment and would be a great opportunity to work at a London theatre.

Send a paragraph with any experience you have and why you're interested in the role to mark.bittlestone@straightupproductions.com by 8 October.

Contact: mark.bittlestone@straightupproductions.com
