Producer/director roles and show applications


Master-Stroke

7:30pm, Wed 23rd May 2018 - Thu 24th May 2018, at Fitzpatrick Hall, Queens' College
Easter Week 4

Applications to Produce and Stage Manage

We are looking for passionate and committed students to help bring to life a near-unbelievable tale of art, love, murder and possession set during the 1850s and 60s. The following roles are available:

- Producer
- Stage Manager

Send me an email mentioning any prior experience (helpful, but in no way essential) and what interests you in the show - we encourage any thoughts about staging, set and publicity!

If you have questions about the play or the roles please feel free to drop me a message. The main thing I want to get across is that the roles are primarily based on organising venues, props and rehearsals, but I want to be able to open up a discussion if you were interested in the creative aspect as well!

Artist. Prisoner. Murderer. Genius.

Locked up in Bedlam asylum for the vicious murder of his father, Richard Dadd is a shell of a man who has abandoned his painting. The arrival of an ambitious doctor and a strange new patient called Jane lead him out of his silence and into a world of dreams, fairies and madness. Dadd begins to paint again – but what buried horrors could it awaken in his mind?

Based on the life of an extraordinary artist, Master-Stroke tells a story of art and obsession, of people caught in the most alienating and dehumanising of circumstances. It is a meeting of fantasy and reality at a time of changing perceptions of art, illness and gender, a story of possession by devils and other forces outside our control.

Deadline: Friday 27th April 12:00pm

Send questions and applications to chris.lazenbatt@gmail.com, including why you want to work on the show and previous relevant experience where available, then after the deadline we’ll organise times to meet and interview you.

The CUG&S society is taking Iolanthe to the 25th international Gilbert and Sullivan festival in Harrogate in August (Show on 13th August) and we're looking for a Producer to get this show started!
