Footlights Spring Revue 2021- DIRECTOR and PRODUCER applications
Applications are now open to DIRECT or PRODUCE the annual Cambridge Footlights Spring Revue, which takes place in Lent Term! This two-act sketch show ADC main will be performed by the graduating members of the Footlights, and will likely be made up of new material, as well as a selection of material which may have already appeared in smokers or non-Footlights shows. We want to get the director and producer on board ready to pitch the show to the ADC selection panel when pitching comes around later this term. This means both roles will be on board from the start, meeting with the cast (which will be made up of current Footlights members) before the pitching process to create a show concept, title and aesthetic. To clarify, there is no audition process for this show, as Footlights members get automatic entry to the cast, should they wish to take part. If you are a current member, you are still welcome to apply for the role, should you elect not to perform in the show. Below is more info on what each role entails, what to include in your application and the deadline for applying. This is a unique and exciting opportunity to get involved with a sell-out flagship Footlights show and ADC main show all at the same time, so why wouldn’t you get on board?!
