Past shows at Cripps Auditorium, Magdalene College
- March 2022The shock resignation of the President of the Student Union sparks a succession crisis amongst the surviving sabbatical officers. Meanwhile, a febrile mental health crisis and the emergence of a mysterious, anonymous gossip blog threaten to destabilise the student community - and secretive plans are afoot at the highest levels of the university. As candidates campaign and conspiracy theories run rife, how far will they go to succeed? And who will emerge victorious? The Student Union is an explosive new political satire exploring power, truth, and democracy, from the writer/director behind five-star hits like Doctor Whom and Tomorrow's News.
- March 2022This is the story of a ginger kid who just wants to play music. We chart Ed’s journey from drama kid (celebrities–they’re just like us!) to busker, from playing your Nan’s favourite pub to sold out stadium tours. With cameos from Elton John, anonymous record label execs, Games of Thrones, and (thrillingly) the planning board of the local council. 45 minutes of student-written joy, music, and cheap puns.
- February 2018In an underground gymnasium somewhere in America, six enthusiastic children compete to be crowned this year's Spelling Bee champion. All while breaking into song and fighting to make it through to the final round, these young contestants reveal how they cope with the trials of growing up, family life and more. Hilarious, whacky and surreal, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee incorporates musical numbers, audience participation and improv to create this Tony Award-winning show.
- February 2017A multi award-winning show with music by Cole Porter and book by PG Woodhouse, Anything Goes is set in the American Jazz era aboard the S. S American. Join former evangelist turned nightclub singer Reno Sweeney, debutante Hope Harcourt, stowaway Billy Crocker and second-rate gangster Moonface Martin (Public Enemy #13) on their transatlantic voyage from New York to London to find out what happens when convention goes out the porthole!
