Technical and designer roles


23:00, Fri 15th March 2019 - Sat 16th March 2019 at ADC Theatre
Lent Week 8

Looking for:

  • Stage Manager

2030 is looking for an organised stage manager to help make this exciting new sketch show happen!

'Worried about graduation? Getting on the housing ladder? Global warming? AI? The bees?? Self-driving cars eating you alive? Or just plain old nuclear annihilation? There’s plenty of things to be stressed about over the next decade. Why not find out how terrible (or non-terrible) things are going to be in advance? Come see 2030, the only druid-certified soothsaying sketch show! The cast and crew have travelled back in time 11 years to present to you a series of light vignettes/grim warnings all set in the near-future. With a script so responsive to developing news stories you’d swear the show had an improv component (rather than being genuinely clairvoyant), 2030 showcases the best of the Cambridge comedy scene’s writers and performers, working closely together to put together a vision of the future that’s so “uproariously funny” you’ll wish you were a decade older!'

This show will be a lot of fun, and stage managing is an exciting way to get involved outside of acting and writing!
If you're interested, please send me a short email explaining why you want to be involved, and any relevant information or experience you may have (none necessary!).

Deadline for applications: Tuesday 19th February 23:59

Looking for:

  • Stage Manager
  • Lighting Designer
  • Sound Designer
  • Set Designer (*)
  • Costume Designer (*)

Set over a month in a rehab centre, Rust explores addiction, mental health services, and what it means to rebuild yourself from rock bottom.

Rust is a CUMTS original musical going to the Edinburgh Fringe this summer! This is an exciting opportunity to work creatively on a life-affirming show about rehab, addiction, and mental health, inspired by personal experience, and to have your work seen by a massive audience at the Fringe. We are looking to complete our rusty family with some production team roles!

We have two beautiful venues confirmed, with a lovely afternoon slot, as well as a gorgeous central flat in which everyone has a separate bed - a rarity at the Fringe! It's almost too good to be true :)

- Stage Manager
The Stage Manager will be in charge of the stage, and the safety of the company, during the show, as well as the Technical and Dress rehearsals. The SM will also be in charge of sourcing props, as well as maintaining smooth and efficient get-ins and get-outs for each performance.

- Lighting Designer
We are looking for a creative LD to come up with an exciting design which reflects the tone of the piece. The role will require some pre-planning and a willingness to be flexible as we will only have a few hours to do a tech and dress rehearsal in each venue.

- Sound Designer
The Sound Designer will work closely with the Musical Director regarding microphones for the cast and band, as well as mixing each performance to make this new musical pop for every audience.

- Set Designer (*)
The Set Designer will be in charge of creating a versatile set which will be easy to set up and take down for each performance, as well as work in two similar thrust venues. (See for more details).

- Costume Designer (*)
The Costume Designer will be in charge of creating, sourcing, and maintaining the costumes for a cast of around 8 for a month run at the Fringe.

(* We are interested in the possibility of combining these two roles into 'Production Designer'. Please indicate whether you are applying for one of these roles, or if you'd be willing to be considered for both.)

Please apply discussing:
- Why you would like to be involved
- Any ideas you have about the show / the challenges of the Fringe
- Your experience (none required)

This show will contain serious subject matter, and it is of the utmost priority that everyone involved feels safe and comfortable working on it. Please, please do not hesitate to get in touch with Helena ( or Geraint ( if you have any questions or worries about this, or about applying in general.

We can't wait to hear from you!
