Sunday 30th September between 6pm-9pm in the KCL Strand Campus, room SDR and on Monday 1st and 7th October between 10am-1pm in KCL Strand Campus, room SWB18

Lovesick Prince Hilarion was married to his dearest wife Princess Ida before either of them had reached their third birthday, and the so-called couple haven't met since. Now Hilarion's twenty-two and desperate to be reunited with his mysterious bride, but Ida has greater ambitions: she's founded a women's university, and she's not giving it up for the sake of some mouldy old marriage contract. As Ida vows to renounce romance for academia and Hilarion struggles to convince her otherwise, their future kingdoms descend into chaos, until there's a lot more than just principles at stake...
Named Roles
Ida - idealistic founder of Castle Adamant, the women's university
Psyche - Ida's sardonic deputy, the Professor of Humanities
Blanche - Ida's scheming Professor of Abstract Science
Melissa - Blanche's daughter, a disaffected Adamant student
Sacharissa - smug Senior Student, and tormentor of Melissa
Chloe - a shy student with a dangerous secret
Ada - another student, Sacharissa's infatuated acolyte
Queen Hildebrande - warrior-queen of the neighbouring kingdom
Hilarion - her adorable son
Cyril - Hilarion's reckless friend
Florian - Hilarion's pedantic friend
King Gama - Ida's misanthropic father
Arac - Ida's flamboyant warrior-brother
Guron - Ida's dim-witted warrior-brother
Scynthius - Ida's perpetually frightened warrior-brother
(We will be casting female actors as Ida and Hildebrande, but all other casting will be gender-blind)

Welcome meeting on 2nd October at 7pm
Principal role auditions on the 12th and 13th of October
Performance: 17th - 23rd February 2019, Annex Theatre Southampton


Would you like to be involved in an early medieval take on Gilbert & Sullivan’s “Princess Ida”? To become a Saxon or Viking?
Then why not come along to LOpSoc’s welcome meeting on 2nd October at 7pm, in Building 34, room 4013! Our chorus is un-auditioned and everyone is welcome!
We will be auditioning for principal roles on the 12th and 13th of October, the week after our welcome meeting.

For the first time in nine years LOpSoc is bringing Gilbert and Sullivan's eighth operetta to the Annex Theatre! To recapture the begrudging tolerance and cooperation of the two neighbouring kingdoms described in the original libretto we've set our production in an Early Medieval England. The Hildebrands are the rulers of of a Anglo-Saxon kingdom and Gama is the Jarl of a local Viking settlement seeking to increase his legitimacy and influence by marrying his daughter into the royal line. Ida's women's university becomes Fort Adamant, a new invention better understood by the more liberal Viking community but ultimately unacceptable to the Anglo-Saxons. LOpSoc is starting the year with another fresh re-imagining of a classic Savoy opera!
Prince Hilarion, heir to an Anglo-Saxon kingdom, was betrothed to Ida, daughter of the Jarl presiding over a local Viking settlement, when they were infants. The two have been separated ever since. Our story unfolds as Hilarion and the court of his father, King Hildebrand, await the arrival of Ida and her family for the long awaited marriage, only to find Ida has disappeared! Jarl Gama and his family explain that Ida has forsworn all men and founded a Women's University. As tensions rise between the two rulers Hilarion proposes he travels to Fort Adamant to remind Ida of her betrothal. Disguised as students at the fort the Prince and his friends, Cyril and Florian, begin their mission to woo Ida into accepting the marriage. But as more and more of the student body discover their true identities, chaos ensues within the university. And beyond the walls, King Hildebrand is amassing an army with the promise to aid his son by any means necessary...

Absolutely.

"If we start to lose our faith, then it all collapses."
In less than 10 years, Bitcoin, a virtual currency that needs no country or central bank to exist, went from £0 to £5,000 in value. It has made millionaires across the world and facilitated an explosion in black market online trading. The Price fuses real events with fictional characters to present a striking picture of the impact on people's lives when an intellectual exercise becomes a society-changing reality.
Male - 50s, classic salesman-type, smaller role
Male - 30s, academic, self-styled rebel, lead role
Female - 20s, inquisitive, passionate, lead role
Male - 20s, reliable, strong character

AUDITYIONS: Sunday 14 October, 1-5pm; Wednesday 17 October, 7.30-10pm
PERFORMANCE DATES: 15th/16th Feb, 22nd/23rd Feb, 1st/2nd March
REHEARSAL DATES: Mon/Thu eves from 26 Nov, excluding 17 Dec through 31 Dec


OPEN AUDITION CALL for our TOURING SHOW
Festival Players is holding open auditions for its upcoming project ‘Someone In The Crowd’. This will be a touring concert of songs from shows and films, visiting venues in and around the Cambridge area during February and March 2019.Our theme for the 2019 tour is ‘Someone in the Crowd – songs of hope, dreams and aspirations’. We’d like our songs to explore the themes of identity – wanting to fit in, wanting to stand out, wanting to find your place in this world.
We’re going to group the songs into four distinct scenes, each of which we believe offers plenty of scope for these themes to be explored. We’re aiming for the songs to flow naturally from one to another, perhaps with the occasional line of dialogue to help that flow.
Our four ‘scenes’ will be: The Commute, The Audition, College Days, and The Restaurant.
Everyone will be on stage in each scene as commuters, auditionees, students and patrons in each case, becoming involved in specific songs as necessary.
