Welcome to the CULES Website!
We are a student run-group who aim to bring theatre to those who would normally not get the chance to see it, taking performances to such places as special needs schools and nursing homes. Our second, but equally important, aim is to have fun! We generally perform a play and a pantomime in both Michaelmas and Lent. In Easter we perform four short plays around a theme (designed to be manageable and fun for after exams!). All of these are written, directed and produced by enthusiastic members of the society.
Getting involved couldn't be simpler — just come along to our friendly open auditions at the beginning of each term, details of which will be posted here and on our e-mail list. Even if you've never done anything like this before, we'd still like to see you! We will have many parts with varying levels of commitment available, so if you don't want to take on too much, or if you want to steal the show, just let us know.
To get in touch with us, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Lent Term 2013
You are very welcome to come along to one of our weekly pub meets :-)
This term we have for you:
A play: "The Supervillain’s Guide to Ethical Subjectivism": Victor just wants to unleash heinous masterplans on the innocent people of Sameville in peace, but the incompetent mayor, a DIY superhero, and a radioactive gingerbread man keep getting in the way a lot.
And a pantomime: "Snow White and the Three Dwarves": Prince Bernard's Mum wants to marry him off, as she doesn't think he could manage to run the kingdom alone, and Snow White seems to be the best option - but the mother-in-law is a force to be reckoned with...
Join us at our student performance on Friday, 15 March, 6pm in the Queen's Building Lecture Theatre in Emmanuel College!
Suggested donation £6/£4 for concessions, all proceeds to charity (this term: Jimmy's Night Shelter and North Kent Women's Aid) :-)
We also have a Facebook Event, if that's your cup of tea.
