    Summer Vacation

    We are looking for a large cast of singers actors and dancers to bring H.M.S. Pinafore to the Minack theatre! It is a fabulous, fun-filled operetta, with some gorgeous, joyful music, and many tender and hilarious moments. We are looking for performers from all backgrounds, so whether your background is Musical Theatre, Opera, Choral singing, straight acting, or you have no performing experience at all, you are warmly welcomed! For this production we are also particularly looking for some strong DANCERS, who will be comfortable to take on some dance solos.

    The Minack show is truly one of the highlights of the Cambridge Theatre calendar. It is a theatre like no other (always ranking among the best theatres in the world!) and it brings a real thrill to perform there. The cast spend three weeks at the furthest tip of Cornwall, rehearsing the show, enjoying cream teas and ice creams in seaside towns, and indulging in the local pub’s fine and extremely large selection of gins. It's not an experience to be missed!

    There are three audition sessions, including an hour of drop-ins from 4-5 on Monday 24th. Please sign up for a slot using the link below:

    Hen Night: The Musical!CUMTS

    00:00, Wed 5th August 2020 - Mon 31st August 2020 at Edinburgh Fringe - TBC
    Summer Vacation

    The flights are booked, the speeches are written, the dress is ready; but are YOU? This whodunit, comedy, female-led musical follows the story of 7 women over the course of 24 hours. Think ‘Bridesmaids’, meets ‘Fleabag’, meets Agatha Christie.

    ‘Hen Night: The Musical!’ is the CUMTS original musical this year from Cambridge Footlights Harriet Fisher & Lottie Elton, and Harvard graduate musical extraordinaire Mateo Lincoln. We’ve got the bops and jokes (almost) ready, all we need now is a team of hens to get this musical ready for the Edinburgh Fringe 2020!

    Please check out the audition pack below for more information, and then sign up for an audition slot and come on down!

    Please feel free to get in touch with any questions xx

    Easter Week 0

    On the Exhale - Week 0 Corpus Main - AUDITIONS 📣

    We are looking for 1 (just one!) female/NB actor to deliver this searingly powerful ONE-HOUR monologue on motherhood, politics and American gun violence.

    A note on the timing of the show: obviously, this show takes place in exam term (finals for me yikes), so the rehearsal process will be very understanding of this. I'm hoping for some casual rehearsals and character workshops until the end of this term, followed by a more intense period of rehearsal after Easter from ~13th April until the show on 21st April.

    The audition times/dates/places are:
    Wed 26th February, 12pm-2pm, Corpus Playroom DR1
    Thu 27th February, 3pm-5pm, Corpus Playroom Auditorium
    Thu 27th February, 5pm-6pm, Corpus Playroom Auditorium (DROP-IN)

    For audition slots 1 and 2, please sign up using the Doodle poll below!:

    If you can't make any of the slots, please don't hesitate to just ping me an email ( and we can sort out another time!
