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 lightentertainment@cusu.cam.ac.uk.

Easter Term 2014


This term's shows will be in the gardens of Newnham College on Saturday 21 of June at 2.30pm. All proceeds go to charity.

The first show is Around the World in Eighty Days, an hour-long tale of Phileas Fogg's escapades in Victorian London and beyond. Will he be able to make good on his wager and return to London in eighty days? Come and watch to find out.

This will be followed by three half-hour plays comprising what is known as "Clements":
