We are always looking for new talent. Experience is welcome, but not necessary; enthusiasm is, however, very vital! Many of our members are students from Leiden University’s English Department, but anyone is welcome to join.
At the moment we are in the midst of preparing for our upcoming play, Alice in Wonderland. However, next semester we will be performing a new play, and for that we will glady welcome any new members interested in joining the new production. “So”, you might ask, “what kind of roles do you need filled?” Well, here’s all the info:
How to apply
First of all, please be aware that you cannot apply for our current play, since preparations are already underway. We will start preparing for the next play in September 2016. If you are interested in applying for one of the roles below, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. You will find what information to put in those e-mails at the end of the individual information documents for which you will find download links below.
What’s a play without actors? Information about auditions will be posted on our channels when the new semester begins. Everyone from complete beginners to Alan Rickman is welcome to audition. Can’t wait to apply? Please peruse the following file to know more:

Less fond of the lime-light? New backstage crew is always welcome, and no production can do without. Being a backstager, you will be responsible for one (or more!) of the following: set, props, costumes, hair and make-up, or lights and sound. Experience in stage production is welcome, but most of our backstagers are beginners when they first join – so no worries if you haven’t been a backstager before. Curious to know more?

The stage manager is a very important part of the team. He or she basically manages everything that goes on behind the scenes, both during rehearsals as well as during the actual performances. The role of stage manager is a lot of fun, but it requires quite some time and dedication on your part, too. Interested? Look at the following file for more information:

Additional crew members
We are also looking for some members who won’t be involved with the plays themselves that much, but who are still key in the entire process. Specifically, we’d like to have a dedicated designer for posters, flyers, etc., a photographer to document our rehearsals, performances, and other gatherings, and a videographer, to make short trailers and to film the performances. Check the documents below for more in-depth information:
