"I can't know you in one hundred and forty."
"Try."

We (Sara and Emily) pitched this wonderful show (yes, that is five whole lemons) as actors and are now looking for a team to collaborate with us to help us bring it to life! Absolutely no experience required, just enthusiasm and excitement. We are especially interested in applications from women and non-binary people and/or people who identify as LGBTQ+ due to the nature of our version of this play, but if you do not identify with any of these, please still feel free to apply!

You can find the play on Drama Online at (https://www.dramaonlinelibrary.com/plays/lemons-lemons-lemons-lemons-lemons-iid-157457/do-9781784603571-div-00000009) and the link to our Pinterest mood board at (https://www.pinterest.co.uk/becke001/lemonsx5/)

We have listed several roles below that we think are particularly relevant, but we would also love to hear from you if you have ideas about how some of these roles could be combined or if there’s a different role you’d like to take on that we haven’t listed below.

SOUND DESIGNER

· Why would you like to be involved in this production?
· Any ideas you have for this show’s publicity design? (Lemons not required, but strongly encouraged!)
· As we are part of Pembroke New Cellars’ ‘Green Season’, we are aiming to use paperless publicity and therefore to focus on online content. Do you have any ideas about what this could look like?

Looking for:

  • Stage Managers
  • Sound Designer
  • Publicist

STAGE MANAGERS

We are looking for an SM, a DSM, and several ASMs to join our team! This is an ambitious production with lots of moving set, so it will be pretty essential that we have many hands backstage helping things run smoothly. We're looking for the same thing in all applications, but if you have a preference for which of the roles you'd like based on commitment, please do specify. In your application please tell us why you want to be involved in this production, what you consider important to stage managing, and any relevant experience you may have. (Experience is only essential for the SM and DSM roles; if you've never stage managed but fancy giving it a go then ASM could be the role for you!)


SOUND DESIGNER

If sourcing and recording sounds is your forte, get in touch! We are going to have original composition and soundscaping for this production, and we'd love a sound designer on board to help out. You'll be working with our composers, Eve and Iona, directors to design ambient sounds and find moments where sound effects can add to the production. Shoot us a short email detailing what interests you about this production and any relevant experience you have if this sounds like your thing.


PUBLICIST

We're looking for someone who can generate hype! You'll be working with our producer Elise and our publicity designer Lucy to publicise the production, particularly in the run up to show week; this will include things like liaising with the student papers about preview and review articles, advertising on Facebook and other media, and organising poster and flyer distribution. Send us an email detailing what interests you about this production and any relevant experience you have if this sounds like your kind of role.


Please send all applications to Sarah (sat64) and Elise (evnn2) by the end of Friday 20th December. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch!

What's Wrong With Me?

Lent Week 3

Looking for:

  • Publicity Designer

Week 3 ADC Late Show – Wednesday 5th to Saturday 8th February

Cambridge's comedy scene asks the question we're all dying to know the answer to: "What's wrong with me?" Join us as doctors (or at least comedians playing doctors) try to diagnose the ills of the world and provide the best medicine of all, laughter, in large doses that push the legal limit.

This sketch comedy show is currently looking for a PUBLICiTY DESIGNER!

With the refrain of “What’s wrong with me?” inspiring the show, the ensuing sketches will be inspired by the loose idea of “diagnosis,” trying to get to the bottom of what’s wrong with humans, whether that bump on your chin is a tumor or just a massive zit, and why you can’t get any Tinder matches. Maybe it has something to do with the small Victorian ghost haunting all your photos. What’s wrong with me? We’ll have to find out.

In your application email please include:
-What excites you about the show
-Any relevant experience
-General ideas for publicity

Please send applications to Katie Duggan at ked44@cam.ac.uk !!

Contact: ked44@cam.ac.uk
Deadline for applications: Sunday 22nd December

"A flash photograph of a snowman wearing a T-shirt that says: 'I Suck Dick'. A flash photograph of a pair of inflamed tonsils sweating white and almost dazzling. A flash photograph of a pregnant woman in a Spiderman suit, as swollen and smug as a digesting snake."

Rhoda attends her first meeting of the Society for Virtual Oblivion, an organisation in which individuals work together to delete their digital traces. Meanwhile, two local history enthusiasts frequent the same church in which the Society meets in order to investigate a network of underground tunnels beneath the building. These narratives become intertwined the historians begin to consider that the tunnels may have been built by an ‘artificial’ religious hermit as a means of facilitating a double life. The members of the Society grow to understand more about one another all the while watched over by The Algorithm, a quasi-deity who acts as a representative for all apparatuses of digital surveillance. Rhoda, becoming increasingly paranoiac, realises that she can see see and later talk to this being, which sets up a parallel between her and the medieval mystic the hsitorians are attempting to locate.

More info about the show and specific positions can be found in our Application Pack

See our Pinterest for the aesthetic.

We can’t stress enough how much we want the tech team to be a creative force in this production - as a directorial and writing team we have ideas, but by no means have all the answers, and we really want to collaborate with you to make CTRL-Z an ambitious, slick, spectacular show.

Maurice

19:00, Tue 18th February 2020 - Sat 22nd February 2020 at Corpus Playroom
Lent Week 5

Looking for:

  • Lighting Designer
  • Set Designer / TD

no previous experience needed, just enthusiasm! please help us bring this show to life and get in touch with your application asap!


SET DESIGNER and/or TD

The play is set across several locations - including a psychiatrist’s office, Maurice and Clive’s cambridge rooms, Clive’s country house and a London hotel room. We want to create a set that is able to work as the location of every scene, and that conveys Forster’s oppressive, over-stuffed and heavily-curtained depiction of the various institutions in his novels. We are particularly keen for it to include a bed, a fireplace and a window that is somehow interactive (eg. curtains, opening/closing).

The set designer will be responsible for designing the set (lol), while the TD will be responsible for its construction - these are roles that we would expect to need close collaboration, so we welcome joint or combined applications if you feel they would be more appropriate !

Please consider in your application:

  • Whether you are applying for one of both of these roles and why
  • Why you would like to be involved with the show !
  • Your ideas for the set - feel free to include drawings, pinterest boards, AMVs of Hugh Grant etc
  • Any challenges you can foresee in its design and/or execution
  • How you would want to work with other technical roles
  • Any previous experience that you feel would be relevant
  • Your favourite fictional building and why !

LIGHTING DESIGNER

As one set will have to convey several locations throughout the show, we are looking for a lighting designer with an awareness of the subtle ways in which lighting can change the mood and feel of the scene. We are particularly looking for colder lighting during the scenes in the psychiatrist’s office compared to a dimmer, more nostalgic feel for the events in Maurice’s past, and then fresher, warmer lighting as the play returns to the present. The script has lighting suggestions in it, but we are keen to give more creative freedom to our LD ! If you would like a copy to look over, please email ej330

Please consider in your application:

  • Why you would like to be involved with the show !
  • Your ideas for its lighting (BONUS: how would you light the fireplace?)
  • How the space (the corpus playroom - feel free to email ej330 for more detailed technical specifications) has influenced these
  • Any challenges you can foresee in your design / its execution
  • How you envisage working alongside other technical roles
  • Any previous experience that you feel would be relevant
  • Your favourite picture of Rupert Graves (if applicable)

Contact: ej330@cam.ac.uk
Deadline for applications: Sunday 5th January 15:00
