Happy New Year!

Posted on: January 13th, 2013 by Charlotte Sanders

We hope all of your 2013’s have got off to a fantastic start (essays/revision aside of course)
We’ve got a really exciting semester ahead of us with LOADS of great opportunities on offer and here is the first one:

As part of the University’s IMPACT campaign, The Nottingham New Theatre and Lakeside are putting on a joint production of Lysistrata which will be staged at Lakeside just after the Easter holidays.
The cast for this production will be made up solely of NNT members and we‘ll be letting you know all about the auditions, rehearsals, etc at the AGM.

There will also be some really exciting backstage  positions available shadowing theatre professionals. Full job descriptions and further details will follow but the date for interviews has been set for February 16th at Lakeside.

Interviews will take place throughout the day for three positions:
– Assistant Director
– Technical Assistant
– Marketing Assistant

Those interested in getting involved need to send an email to: Make sure you include a little about what you have done before and why you want to be involved in the production.

The technical and assistant directors MUST be available throughout the Easter holiday period! They might be able to help those who have no accommodation during this time.

If you know you want to direct a show next season or are simply curious for more info, get in contact with James McAndrew our Productions Co-Ordinator. Send an email to him at: and he’ll be able to give you all of the advice and guidance you might need for putting together a proposal.

Spring AGM
