The Spiteful Landsman is looking for Actors!
The Spiteful Landsman is an exciting and original piece of new student writing by one other than Dan Ward! It’s a Corpus Playroom Late Show in Lent Week 2 and we’re looking for a really cool and enthusiastic cast to bring it to life! In person auditions are on Friday 3rd from 11 to 2:30! Zoom auditions and self tapes also available!
For the first time, we are showcasing a student-written number in Gala! The aim of this is to allow an emerging composer  the chance to showcase a large-scale song without having to pitch the entire show to a funding body. We are super excited for this - there is so much talent in Cambridge on the composing scene and it’s so exciting to be able to showcase it in this high profile show.
Blood and Ice auditions are OPEN!
This play about the creation of the novel Frankenstein needs some amazing actors to give it the spark of life! If you ever wanted to explore the very dramatic lives of some of literature’s most famous figures, this is the play for you!
We are looking for a talented and passionate CAST!!! There are is a variety of roles varying in level of commitment - with four lead roles and five ensemble members. Note: This play explores ideas around religion and Jewish identity. While the Jewish faith school is the main setting of the play, its focus is also on culture and growing up within a minority community rather than religion specifically. Auditions are open to anyone regardless of minority background or religion, so please do not let that discourage you!! This is a unique opportunity to create more BME representation on the Cambridge Theatre and we actively encourage all interested Jewish/Middle Eastern students to audition for this regardless of previous theatre experience. Please see our audition pack for more details :))
CUMTS Presents: The 24 Hour Musical is looking for DIRECTORS, LYRICISTS, and COMPOSERS!
24 is back with a bang and we need creatives! For one night only chaos will descend on the ADC (at all other times we're very professional) as we put a brand new show together in just 24 hours - and we need YOU to join! We are looking for Lyricists, Composers , and Directors  (6 of each)!
'The Children' is looking for a Production Team
This is an incredible opportunity to get involved in a deeply resonant contemporary piece of theatre about friendship, environmental issues, and generational tensions. The following roles are available: - Lighting Designer  - Sound Designer  - Set Designer  - Costume Designer  - Stage Manager  - Publicity Designer 
Apply to Write/Direct your movie in Lent Term!
Next Lent, CUFA will be funding a 15-20 minute short film - The Big Cambridge Movie! - and we want YOU to write it!
ADC Lent Week 4 Mainshow! We will be auditioning for all roles in the cast this week!!
I’m looking for an incredible cast of five super duper skilled actors to help bring this show alive. With the exception of the actor playing Ringelblum, the four other actors will be working as an ensemble whilst also having more prominent, named characters. Note: YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE JEWISH TO AUDITION. I’m keen for this show to bring people from many different identities and cultures together to ensure that whilst this show portrays the beauty of Jewish culture, it can also appeal to a wide and diverse audience. Ringelblum himself was keen to share his story with the rest of the world and so it seems fitting that we should allow people from any identity to help share his story with more people.
