Producer/director roles and show applications


RustCUMTS

23:00, Wed 13th November 2019 - Sat 16th November 2019 at ADC Theatre
Michaelmas Week 5

Applications to Assistant Direct or Produce

‘When you leave here, everything else is going to be exactly the same. The only thing that’s changed is you.’

‘Rust: The Musical’ debuted at the Edinburgh Fringe 2019 to sold-out shows and rave reviews (***** BroadwayBaby, The National Student, Musical Theatre Review) and won Best Musical at the Derek Awards. Now we want YOU to get involved in bringing the show to the ADC!
Rust is an original musical about mental illness, addiction, and recovery. Based on personal experience, the audience follows Evie as she spends a month in a rehab centre following a mental health crisis. Moving and life-affirming, the musical focuses on human relationships; the immensely difficult but inexpressibly worthwhile process of recovery; and how it feels to realise that you still remember how to laugh.

“By the end of it all, there were standing ovations, tears and people reaching over to hug their loved ones in the audience… ‘Rust – The Musical’ deserves all the praise it has been given so far.” The National Student

“The work is exciting, innovative, and challenging. The musical compositions are high enough quality to head to Broadway.” Fringe Review

As the cast, band and some of the crew have put this show on before, we’re looking for fresh eyes willing to contribute ideas to this production. This also means it is an ideal opportunity for those with little experience (Freshers, we’re looking at you!) to get involved, or for people who want to get involved in an area of production they are interested in but have not managed to try yet.
.

ASSISTANT DIRECTOR

In Edinburgh the show was performed in thrust staging (audience on three sides), and translating the staging to proscenium arch will be one of the biggest changes in the Cambridge production. You do not need any experience, just enthusiasm!

In your application please include anything you think is relevant, such as:

  • Why you want to be involved in this production
  • What you are most interested in when directing (spacing on stage, creating a visual spectacle, psychology/intention of characters, etc.)
  • What you view the role of an Assistant Director to be, and what skills you can bring to the role
  • What your favourite musical is and why

DEADLINE: Thursday 10th Oct at 23:39
.

PRODUCER

We’re looking for someone who’s particularly interested in marketing, as the lateshow can be a tricky one to fill up! You will receive a full handover from our Fringe producer, Elspeth, to make sure you can take on the role smoothly.

In your application please include anything you think is relevant, such as:

  • Why you want to be involved in this production
  • Any experience you have
  • Any marketing ideas you have
    .
    .
    Please send all applications to Izzy (director, ic360@cam.ac.uk) and Helena (writer, hcaf2@cam.ac.uk)
    This show contains serious subject matter, and it is of the utmost priority that everyone involved feels safe and comfortable working on it. Please, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us if you have any questions or worries about this, or about applying in general.

Can’t wait to hear from you!

Deadline: Sunday 13th October 23:59


In the Solitude of Cotton Fields

19:30, Tue 12th November 2019 - Sat 16th November 2019 at Pembroke New Cellars
Michaelmas Week 5

Applications to Assistant Direct and Produce

‘If you are out walking at this hour and this place, you must want something, and that something I’m sure I can help you with…’

In a place between places, in a moment between moments, two men encounter each other. A dealer with no merchandise. A client with no currency. Among the shards of civilisation, fear and desire, attraction and repulsion, attack and defence pulsate in savage oscillations. Each man confronts the stakes of crossing the void that separates him from the other. Sinuous monologues are traded like uppercuts. Gesture becomes a choreography of commerce. Rapport begins when, in the absence of a fixed object, it is no longer possible to determine who leads and who follows, who wins and who loses.

In the Solitude of Cotton Fields is the magnum opus of “the most representative author of contemporary French theatre” (J.-C. Lieber). At one time the best-selling play in France, this challenging two-hander has never before been performed in Cambridge.

We are looking for an assistant director and a producer. Freshers very welcome to apply.

The usual:

• What interests you about this play

• Your approach to the role

• Any relevant experience (not a prerequisite)

Email sjw258.

Deadline: Sunday 13th October 23:59

Simply send an email outlining why you're interested in directing, what type of theatre or film interest you most, and any experience you might have (again, absolutely none required). Freshers interested in theatre or looking for a way to meet creative people are very welcome - we look forward to hearing from you!

A quirky piece of devised comedy theatre from Cambridge Footlight and self-proclaimed Scoob-Nut Will Bicknell-Found.

We’re looking for some fun and committed PROD team members to help bring the show to life in a new venue, and we want you! We’re looking for:

  • Assistant Director

  • Assistant Producer

  • Stage Manager

  • Assistant Technician

CADS Monologue Clash

23:00, Tue 5th November 2019 at ADC Theatre
20:00, Sun 24th November 2019 at ADC Theatre (Bar)
Michaelmas Week 4 to Week 7

Applications to Direct

The Monologue clash is looking for directors for its one night stand on the 5th November. Being on the ADC stage for one night only means we are particularly encouraging actors to apply with Duologues as well!

Directing for the monologue clash is a super relaxed environment, ideal for those that want to build up experience and try out directing for the first time, don't want to worry about a full show, or simply want to keep their directing abilities ticking over!

As a director you will be working with 3-5 actors to polish their monologues/ duologues for the night. Rehearsals will be coordinated between you and so can all be arranged at the best times for the both of you!

If you are interested drop an email to ogj21@cam.ac.uk explaining why you would like to be involved and any relevant experience you have. Most importantly none is necessary as we encourage directors to collaborate too!

Deadline: Friday 18th October 23:59
