In which we are locked and loaded for the extremely fuckin’ busy year ahead.
In the dark before the dawn of O-fest, we have been striking matches and making moves. Brand new committee lineup. Website launched. Twitter launched. Agenda set. Shows planned. Pitch competition planned.
Now, all that’s left is for you to step in.
VU Theatre is committing to providing a framework. Within this framework, we are making space and dates for all students to do their best at what they’re best at, or experiment with new skills and talents. It’s true that we’re facing some challenges, such as the discontinuation of many Performance Studies units — but we’re boosted even higher by our first-year triumphs at the Fringe Festival and all on our own. This year it’s your turn to step into the spotlight (or behind it) so we can both grow!
Actors – Christmas in July will be our first production for the year, audition dates to be announced after O-Fest.
Writers – We will be opening up massive new opportunities for student-created work this year, starting with a pitch competition that launches on O-day.
Directors – Contact us directly on our Twitter (@vicunitheatre) or through our email form to learn about opportunities in Semester 2.
Artists – Looking to flesh out your portfolio? We have a variety of graphic, set, and costume design opportunities cropping up all the time. Because we’re a small company producing a lot of original work, we provide an environment where your ideas matter.
Others – Look out for us at Orientation and O-Week, or just email us if you’re keen and creative. You don’t need to be an actor to be in theatre!
