The Satyricon - Pembroke Players

9:30pm, Tue 21st November 2017 - Wed 22nd November 2017, at Pembroke New Cellars
Michaelmas Week 7

Looking for

  • Set Designer
  • Publicity Designer
  • Costume Designer
  • Stage Manager
  • Technical Director

Applications are now open for The Satyricon!

We are looking for...

-Set Designer
How would you go about turning the Pembroke New Cellars into, say, a Roman banquet hall? Or the deck of a ship? Or a bustling market town? Set will be a very important aspect of the show, and a big opportunity to get creative. No need for any concrete plans, but let me into some of your ideas.

-Publicity Designer
I've got a few ideas for the general aesthetic of the show, but the general idea is that it won't necessarily look traditionally 'classical'. I'm currently interested in the idea of something halfway between a mosaic and a slightly seedy 70s movie poster or album cover. Email me for more details- we can have a chat before you start producing anything. Ability to produce illustrations preferred!

-Costume Designer
Lots of fun! I think we're probably going to go with traditional(ish) Roman dress.

-Stage Manager
Should be a fun role without too much work.

-Technical Director
Probably going to be quite complex in terms of sound and lighting cues, so experience preferred!

Deadline for applications: Friday 30th June 5:00pm

‘Welcome to Little Heswing’ is a brand-new sketch show with a distinctive narrative, following three peculiar heroes in their fight to save their even more peculiar town. In a bid to convince the County Council that Little Heswing is deserving of its town status, they plan to gather footage of all its major attractions, hidden gems and frankly bizarre residents. From a Squirrel Fight Club to the unmissable biannual HesFest, with guest appearances from the Insecure Morris Dancers™. It’s weirder than a one-man band that’s really seven ferrets in a suit.

Shot in the Dark is a wild spy comedy with an absolutely wizard 1950s aesthetic; a brand new piece of student writing from an experienced duo who foster a friendly environment that welcomes contributions from everyone!

COMPOSER/MUSICAL DIRECTOR: To create a jazzy live score for the show, with a 1950s spy feel, and probably for a single instrument (negotiable...!).

PUBLICITY DESIGNER: Creating a stylish image-based (not text-based!) publicity to match our jazzy 1950s aesthetic. We’re totally open to original ideas: perhaps picking up on the themes of spies, the 1950s, or just outright taking-the-michael out of that other spy thingy, the James Bond franchise! As a comedy we’re looking for something with a lot of humour, to express that this is a show with big laughs!

To apply, email Simon (sjw247@cam.ac.uk) saying 1) why you’d be suited to the role, 2) why the role/show excites you, 3) your favourite spy comedy. - max of 3 paragraphs please!

With very minimal set this is a great show for a tech team to get their teeth into with all the atmosphere/ time/ location delineated by lighting and sound.
