Producer/director roles and show applications
Lent Week 4
Assistant Director/Choreographer, Assistant Musical Director, Assistant Producer
In an underground gymnasium somewhere in America, six enthusiastic children compete to be crowned this year's Spelling Bee champion. All while breaking into song and fighting to make it through to the final round, these young contestants reveal how they cope with the trials of growing up, family life and more.
This play combines classic elements of musical theatre and less common styles, like ad lib, improv and audience participation, and all the themes you'd love to see in a story about a group of odd youths and equally odd adults - the perfect show to get involved in!
If you are interested in any of these roles please email us briefly outlining the following:
- what interests you about this show
- any previous experience you have (not necessary!)
- any ideas you might have about this show, what you think you could bring to the production
- how you would deal with the elements of audience participation and improv in this show (if relevant)
- (for AMD applications) what instruments you play (including level of keyboard experience), and what song in the show is your favourite

University of Cambridge Asia Theatre Tour 2018 - University of Cambridge Asia Theatre Tour
Summer Vacation to Michaelmas Week 2
***TOUR MANAGER applications for the University of Cambridge Asia Theatre Tour 2018 are now open***
It is a truly fantastic opportunity to put together a production that will be staged internationallay whilst travelling around East Asia on a highly subsidised tour. We have the support of Emma Thompson as our patron and you will be working with some awesome venues as well as people in each of these countries. We currently have the support of people from Cambridge Youth Summer Camp, the British Council and UNESCO to name a few organisations. It's an unmissable project if you're interested in theatre beyond Cambridge, education and culture/cultural diplomacy.
After a successful debut travelling around East Asia this summer, UCATT is now on the look out for TWO tour managers to continue the project next year. An exciting opportunity to travel and perform at some incredible places as well as work with a host of interesting people in a very international context. You will be liaising with sponsors and coordinating performances at universities, schools and public venues in the U.K, China, Hong Kong, South Korea and Japan. As well as performances, the tour has a big educational focus, engaging audiences directly with the play through workshops and classes. There is a lot of scope to bring in your own ideas and mutually learn from the diversity of people encountered on tour.
It is an immensely fun experience and we hope that the people working on it this year will be able to build upon the tour’s success and make it even better. Applicants should nonetheless be aware that tour managing requires a lot of responsibility and commitment from the moment of appointment until half way through Michaelmas 2018. Organisation, time management, communication and ability to handle large budgets are fundamental skills. Participants including the tour managers are required to pay a participation fee, however the tour is heavily subsidised.
In your application please mention the following:
- Reasons for wanting to tour manage UCATT.
- Suitability for the role: relevant experience and any particular skills that may help on tour (producing, travelling, managing, teaching, languages, international experience). There is no requirement to speak the languages of the countries visited.
- Any current visions you may have for the tour (play, workshops, venues).
- Your main priorities for the tour.
Applications should be submitted individually however if you wish to apply as a pair please mention the name of the other candidate in your application. If you have any questions or would like to find out more about UCATT please feel free to get in touch with Emily Larcombe via Facebook or email.
Deadline: 8pm, 8th January 2018. Please send all applications to email@example.com Interviews will take place early January.
Below is our UCATT music video made by the amazing Josh McClure.
We look forward to hearing from you!
Deadline: Monday 29th January 8:00pm
