Michaelmas Week 5

Applications to Direct, Musical Direct, and Produce

HMS Pinafore seeks an enthusiastic, committed Director, Musical Director, and Producer to bring this show to life!

The Cambridge University Gilbert and Sullivan Society is excited to bring one of Gilbert and Sullivan's best-loved works to life for our Michaelmas show. This show slot is an excellent opportunity for newer Directors, MDs, and Producers or those who have not been involved in a G&S show before to take charge of a show, and we encourage production teams to similarly seek out performers who are new to the style, especially for principal roles.

The Director will have creative control over all aspects of the show. They will be the main person responsible for running auditions and rehearsals, as well as being responsible for delivering their overall creative vision of the show.

The Musical Director will be responsible for all musical aspects of the show, including assessing auditions, recruiting the orchestra, leading all musical rehearsals, and conducting the show, as well as making creative decisions concerning the music of the show.

The Producer will be responsible for the general organisation of the show, including recruitment and management of other production team members, and will oversee all aspects of the show, particularly including budgeting, publicity, scheduling, and liaising with the venue.

Applications for all roles should be sent by email to Isaac Barkway (, and include the following information:

  • Your understanding of the role, and why you want it
  • Why you're right for the role, including any relevant experience (experience of the same role not required!)
  • Directors: your creative plans for the show (could include set, costumes, characterisation...)
  • MDs: any musical ideas you might have for the show
  • Producers: any particular ideas you have for the organisation of the show (particularly concerning publicity)
  • All roles: your availability for interview on the 22nd and 23rd June (Skype interviews are available if you have left Cambridge by then)

If you have any questions, or would like to informally discuss applying for a role, feel free to email Isaac (

Applications must be received by 6pm, Friday 21st June. Interviews will take place on the 22nd and 23rd June. Skype interviews are available for those who have left Cambridge before then.
