Michaelmas Week 6

Looking for:

  • LIGHTING DESIGNER
  • ASSISTANT LIGHTING DESIGNER
  • STAGE MANAGER

Applications for the tech team of the very first Cambridge Latin Play now open! If you'd like to be part of this original project, please send your application to Alex (aet48@cam.ac.uk). We're looking for an experienced and enthusiastic LIGHTING DESIGNER interested in a visually ambitious show, but there's no experience required for the role of ASSISTANT LIGHTING DESIGNER. STAGE MANAGER would ideally have a basic grasp of Latin. Drop me an email saying why you'd be interested and listing any experience you may have!

***

“You do not avenge crimes unless you surpass them.”

“Scelera non ulcisceris nisi vincis.”

Thyestes and Atreus are twin brothers, kings of Argos.

His lands stolen, his wife seduced, cast out from his home, Atreus swears bloody vengeance on his brother. Now once again ruler of his land, he is determined to exact such revenge on Thyestes that the sun will avert its gaze, the stars will fall from the sky and people will talk of the horror forever after.

Inspired by the well-established Cambridge Greek Play, the very first Cambridge Latin Play will stage one of the most violent and heart-breaking tales from the Classical world. Exploring vengeance and pity, families and kingdoms, passion and desire, it lays bare man’s cruellest and most base instincts, culminating in a grotesque finale of cannibalism.

No less relevant or brilliant than Greek drama, Latin theatre has been sadly underrepresented – this production will bring to life not only the text but the language too, performed in Latin with English subtitles.

Deadline for applications: Tuesday 25th September

Applications are now open for Jane Austen's Northanger Abbey!

To apply please email ampt4@cam.ac.uk, explaining:

- Why you'd like to be involved
- If you have a favourite Austen adaptation, and why
- Any relevant experience
- Any initial ideas you may have (designers should feel free to have a look through the production Pinterest board: https://www.pinterest.co.uk/mtgreenplanet/northanger-abbey-initial-ideas/)

Please don't hesitate to get in touch with any questions!

  • Deputy Stage Manager
  • Lighting Designer
  • Sound Designer
  • Set Designer

Applications for tech team roles for Anna are now open!
Oliver and Heather seemed perfect for each other, until the emergence of the mysterious and alluring Anna and the beginning of a turbulent love affair. However, all is not as it seems as flashes of the truth are disclosed, until finally Anna’s secret is revealed. This exciting circus adaptation of an original play promises to be a super fun show for all involved!
Some role details:
The role of TD will involve a large amount of safety rigging for the circus performance (though there will also be a professional rigger present), and SM will involve co-ordination and safety of the performers. As the production is music led, the DSM will be required to read music in order to give cues. The LD will have plenty of opportunity to show off their creative flair with any ambitious, innovative designs they may have!

**PLEASE NOTE THAT PUBLICITY DESIGNER APPLICATIONS HAVE THE EARLIER DEADLINE FOR 19TH SEPTEMBER** All other roles the deadline is 28th September

Please do get in touch if you have any questions! Looking forward to hearing from you :)
