ARDEN SHOWCASEThe Arden Players

20:00, Sat 2nd November 2019 at Murray Edwards Bar
Michaelmas Week 3

To help celebrate our new committee changeover, we’re hosting a Michaelmas showcase for new female and non-binary talent. We hope for this to be a chill and exciting evening in the Murray Edwards bar where people can try out new things, get a start in Cambridge theatre and have fun performing!

We hope to give successful applicants a five minute maximum slot to perform (either alone or in a group) anything of their choice, though we do encourage it to reflect our society’s ethos of promoting female and non-binary experiences. This could be anything from stand-up, improv, spoken word, poem, small scene from a drama, drag performance or song - we’d like to be surprised!

We are opening submissions for all women & non-binary performers, but particularly encouraging Freshers and/or those who haven’t done theatre before!

    20:00, Mon 21st October 2019 at ADC Theatre (Bar)
    Michaelmas Week 2

    Looking for a laid back way into the Cambridge theatre scene? Then CUMTS Bar Nights are for you!
    Whether you’ve never performed before or you’re a veteran of the stage, these nights are a super friendly way to meet new people who share your passion for peforming and love of musicals! They’re also a great way to build up your confidence if you’re nervous about singing in front of a larger audience.
    This week, the theme is Freshers, which means that if you’re new to Cambridge then you should absolutely come on down and sing a song for us! We’re very friendly and don’t bite (mostly) we promise :D

    Just bring along sheet music for the song you want to sing, and our wonderful pianist (Sam) will accompany you!

    PatienceCUGSS

    19:45, Thu 14th November 2019 - Sat 16th November 2019 at Robinson College Auditorium
    Michaelmas Week 5

    PATIENCE is running auditions for Archina Grosvenor and the Colonel!
    Email aks80@cam.ac.uk with your availability for a Skype/equivalent audition (the acting bits) by 1st September! We are generally free in the evenings or at the weekend, but let us know and we’ll figure something out.
    All information and extracts here: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1oxIZjxD-59zuocnT57fEiPT53DM4m5_n?usp=sharing

    About the show:
    Patience is a musical about a clash between hipsters and football jocks, queer love stories and over-using Instagram. As far as we are aware, we are the first theatre-music production in Cambridge to cast fully octave-blind, meaning that all roles are open to both higher and lower vocal ranges.

    Archina Grosvenor: baritone/alto. Patience’s friend from her childhood, Archina is a trans woman whose talent for poetry has made her a reluctant hipster icon. We are particularly keen to create opportunities for trans performers, and this role will be open to women and non-binary people only.
    Colonel Calverley: patter baritone/alto. Captain of the university football team, the 35th Dragoon Guards. They are continually dedicated to the team, even though most people gave up on them years ago. The Colonel is a patter role, and the character’s gender will match the actor’s.

      Contact Aks80@cam.ac.uk before Mon 30th Sep, 13:00 for more details.
