A Chorus Line
7.45pm, Tue 30th Oct - Sat 3rd Nov @ ADC Theatre
2.30pm, Sat 3rd Nov @ ADC Theatre

Applications for Producer, Musical Director, Assistant Director and Assistant Choreographer(s)

Further information:

“I want to do what I love as much as I can and as long as I can”

With its blend of powerful vocals, high-energy choreography, and amusing and poignant vignettes, 'A Chorus Line' is a stunning musical celebrating the talented, dedicated, and often overlooked, performers of the Broadway chorus. The show is set on the bare stage of a Broadway theatre during the final gruelling round of auditions for a new musical, and features many memorable musical numbers including At The Ballet, The Music and the Mirror, What I Did for Love, and the acclaimed finale: One (Singular Sensation). A Chorus Line is a powerful metaphor for human ambition, revealing the truth of the glamorous, yet at times competitive and tragic world of show-business. Ever since its first Off Broadway performance in 1975, the musical has become an instantly recognisable classic, with the original Broadway production winning nine Tony Awards.

RIBS
11pm, Wed 24th - Sat 27th Oct @ ADC Theatre

Applications to PRODUCE and MUSICAL DIRECT

Further information:

Like jazz? Like a mid-century Soviet aesthetic? Like some cultural resistance and rebellion against the MAN? Then I strongly encourage you to apply to Produce or Musical Direct RIBS!

RIBS is a part-devised, part-written production in the style of GIG-THEATRE! The production will combine the atmosphere/music of a gig, with the story telling of theatre! It's going to be AMAZING and I really can't wait to get started!

PRODUCERS
I'm looking for someone enthusiastic and interested in the show to come on and handle all the weird and wonderful admin things! But don't fear, this role is not 100% admin as I'd love to find someone who is keen on contributing to the creative elements of the show too!
To apply, drop me an email (ham36@cam.ac.uk) including:
- Any relevant experience (not at all necessary!)
- What excites you about RIBS
- What problems you foresee in producing this show
- Any initial ideas you have (can be for design, can be for publicity, can be for anything - hit me with everything!)

MUSICAL DIRECTORS
The general idea for the show is that as much of the band as possible will overlap with the cast (which probably means mostly singers but you never know). I'm looking for someone who is confident they can assemble and direct a small jazz band for live performances each night, will work with the cast and band together in rehearsals, can collaborate with a sound designer for some v cool vibes, and bring the music of the show to life.
To apply, drop me an email (ham36@cam.ac.uk) including:
- Any relevant experience (not at all necessary!)
- What excites you about RIBS
- What problems you foresee in musical directing the show
- Any initial ideas you have about the show (can be music related, can be design related - anything and everything is welcome)
In the meantime, to get you ~jazzed~ imagine this, performed live on a darkened ADC stage: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UY8zK4R9oE8

PS I KNOW EXAM TERM SUCKS - so don't hesitate to get in touch about a deadline extension if you're super keen but can't get something together in time!

Deadline: Wednesday 6th June, 7pm
