CADS Monologue Clash

23:00, Tue 5th November 2019 at ADC Theatre
20:00, Sun 24th November 2019 at ADC Theatre (Bar)
Michaelmas Week 4 to Week 7

Monologue clash is auditioning for their one night stand!

What is it?

The Monologue Clash is an evening of theatrical Monologues from actors across cambridge - a great chance to get involved with theatre casually, try out new material or practice and work with directors on a monologue for auditions. However, unlike most Monologue Clashes, this term we will also be having a one night stand on the ADC stage!

How do I get involved?

Auditions are being held on Friday 18th October. The first 2 hours will be sign ups which you can access here: https://doodle.com/poll/m2cnc2zgecmsrtwt
Or feel free to come between 14:40-15:30 where we will be running drop ins!
To audition pick any monologue of your choice from the entirety of theatre - any age, any era, any genre, preferably more than 2 minutes long and come show it to us! It does not have to be learnt we are merely looking for the feel of the monologue. However, being on the ADC Stage and therefore having much more space we are particularly encouraging Duologues to make the most of this chance!

Any questions get in touch with Ollie at ogj21@cam.ac.uk and of course, freshers and anyone new to cambridge theatre are absolutely welcome!

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.

    La Cenerentola (or 'Cinderella')CUOS

    19:45, Thu 20th February 2020 - Sat 22nd February 2020 at West Road Concert Hall
    13:30, Sat 22nd February 2020 at West Road Concert Hall
    Lent Week 5

    We are delighted to encourage and invite you to audition for La Cenerentola, the CUOS Mainshow 2020. La Cenerentola is Giachino Rossini’s 1817 dramma giocoso in two acts, with a libretto by Jacopo Feretti inspired by Charles Perault’s Cendrillion. The opera follows the fortunes of a young woman named Angelina, who is nicknamed ‘la Cenerentola’ by her cruel stepsisters, translating to ‘Cinderella’ in English. Rossini’s joyful take on this classic fairy tale, however, is noticeably without the magical elements; instead, his version centres on an entirely ordinary young woman and relies on Angelina’s kind heart for its resolution. It is a joyously uplifting opera with brilliant music, and we hope that many of Cambridge’s finest singers will be excited by the prospect of performing this fantastic opera with us.

    Auditions will be held in the week beginning 28 October. Please sign up for a slot here. CUOS aims to make opera accessible to as many people as possible; we encourage singers of all year groups and backgrounds to audition (especially Freshers!). In particular, we are more than happy to consider singers previously unfamiliar with opera for chorus roles, provided that they still display good vocal technique and are confident reading music.
