We are looking for a TECHNICAL DIRECTOR for 'Life Goes On', a split-bill one night stand at Corpus Playroom in late November featuring two ex-Cantabs and a graduate of Trinity Dublin (exotic!). The show is an hour of stand-up loosely based around the theme of life after University.
This will only be a one-night commitment, but will be a fun way to get involved with some comedy from some up-and-coming Cantab exports. Experience with projection might be helpful, but by no means necessary- if you're keen and committed, then send us an email!
COLLABORATORS, week 7 Corpus mainshow, is looking for a PROD TEAM:
This is a role suitable for a fresher or someone new to sound design (or both) and will involve music, some sound effects, and potentially some soundscapes. Most of the sound could be edited to aid the surreal atmosphere.
The show features numerous unusual props, stage violence, and some sinisterly cartoonish chases featuring a certain 20th-century dictator.
We're looking for someone to age our actor for Stalin, and potentially other members of our cast.
Looking for someone to design some Stalinist propaganda-style publicity for the show, and someone to take headshots, rehearsal photos, and other publicity pics.
Get in touch with me (Chris Lazenbatt, cl629), the director (Charlie Morrell-brown, cm885), or the assistant director (Alfred Leigh, al821) on Facebook or by email to ask for more details about the show or a role. To apply, email us with the following: name, CRSID, any past experience (don’t worry if you don’t have any), and any ideas you have about your role. We particularly encourage female, BME, and LGBT+ applicants to join the team.

ASSISTANT STAGE MANAGER APPLICATIONS:
Want to be part of Panto but you don't want to commit to the intense preparation process? Want the excitement of the shows, but not the stress of the risk assessment? Then ASMing is for you!
We no longer have applications open for permanent ASMs but there is still the opportunity to apply for Rotating ASMs.
We will also need a team of rotating ASMs who will be doing a minimum of 3 shows each, preferably including a matinee. This is a much more flexible role, however when applying please commit to as many shows as possible! In your application please include any experience you have, although none is necessary, as well as how many shows you think you will be able to do (and roughly when these will be). Mentioning shows in your application will not commit you to these exact shows, a definite timetable will be made closer to the run.

Email Leah and Sammie at email@example.com for more information and/or register an interest!
We're looking for a team of people to join the sound department as mic fitters/runners and we are accepting applications from anyone with any level of skill.

We are looking for a publicity designer, stage manager and lighting designer for The Sorcerer! Please drop Orsolya an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) including any previous experience, any questions you may have about the show and anything else you'd like to say about yourself! We look forward to hearing from you :)

The show will be a cheesy, chilled Christmas cabaret, full of choreographed pop songs and festive delight. From a tech perspective, this is a really good way to be involved in a low-commitment show, especially for people hoping to be part of CUMTS shows next term! Whilst experience would be useful for all of the roles, if you are keen and don't have much experience, please still apply and if you're successful, we will look into getting you trained!
To apply, please email James at email@example.com with any relevant experience to the role you’re applying for and why you’re interested in the show.
What we are looking for from the specific roles:
We are looking for someone experienced to just go crazy and Christmassy with lights! This role will be fairly low commitment and hopefully lots of fun, as you will have a lot of free reign. We would meet up during the rehearsal period to discuss the lighting design, you would ideally come and watch a run of the show, and then we would tech all day on show day (November 1st). Just think of the Christmas lights possibilities....
This role will involve managing the microphones and band levels for one of the most exciting musical shows of term. It will be fairly low commitment and a great way of gaining experience on a musical show. Experience is required as there will be a large cast and a small band to mic. We would meet up during the rehearsal period to discuss the sound design, you would ideally come and watch a run of the show, and then we would tech all day on show day (November 1st). We hope you're ready to control the levels of someone singing the high note in All I Want for Christmas Is You...
Some experience stage managing would be ideal, as we don’t have much tech time so we need to get everything done quite quickly on the day. However it won’t be a very complicated show, so it shouldn't be too stressful. If you love sourcing Christmas trees and snow machines, this is the show for you...
Deputy Stage Manager
Like for the SM, we need someone very organised, as we don’t have much tech time on our tech/show day (November 1st). This person must be confident following sheet music (the songs won't be complicated but it is likely that there will be lighting/sound cues that coincide with moments in the music). Like the others, it will be a low-commitment role, and a good one for someone who wants to gain DSMing experience on a small-scale show. Have you ever dreamt of cueing your favourite Christmas song along with some gorgeous Christmas lights? Your time has come.
Do you fancy making a jazzy, festive poster and social media imagery for CUMTS’ contribution to cheesy, Christmas musical theatre? Get in touch if you have been waiting for an opportunity to apply your design skills to Christmas musical joy!
