Publicity: We’ll complete most design during the holiday and only thing left for Easter term is some quick edit for our headshots so it’s a basically a stress free way to get involved!

Market Magic: Footlights Harry Porter Prize Winner 2019Footlights

23:00, Wed 15th May 2019 - Sat 18th May 2019 at ADC Theatre
Easter Week 3

Looking for:

  • SET DESIGNER
  • PUBLICITY DESIGNER

*Ahem* This is a THEATRICAL SERVICES announcement. Would all superlative SET DESIGNERS and passionate PUBLICITY DESIGNERS please contact jh2120@cam.ac.uk to get involved with NEW COMEDY. Thank you.

Fresh from a supermarket near you, *Market Magic* is the 2019 winner of the Footlights' Harry Porter Prize. Famous funny-person Alex Horne says it mixes the "chaos" of a shelf-stacker's internal monologue with "the feel of Alice in Wonderland". It's weird, it's bursting with value, and it will certainly be a challenge to stage.

We'd love for you to be involved! If you’re interested in applying, please read the doc below and send your applications to jh2120@cam.ac.uk by MIDNIGHT on the 28th of March

SET DESIGNERS:

The script features elaborate descriptions, playing with and remixing a set based on the warehouse of a supermarket. As the play goes on, this is reused as a magical marketplace, a council room, a battleground for condiment-based chaos and more! This is an opportunity to test your imagination and go wild
We'd like to know
- Why are you interested in the show?
- What previous experience have you had?
- Could you describe in detail your ideas for the main warehouse set? How would you adapt it for its various uses?
- What are your favourite and least favourite supermarket aesthetics? Why?

PUBLICITY DESIGNERS

We'd love to lean in to a twisted, magical-realist supermarket aesthetic. If that doesn't exist already, well, this is your chance to make it a thing. We'd like to know
- Why are you interested in the show?
- What previous experience have you had?
- Having read the script, do you have any favourite images or moments you would like to use?
- Do you have any ideas for the general design of the publicity?
- What are your favourite and least favourite supermarket aesthetics? Why?
