For any avid theatre goers or budding performers, the start of a new semester means one thing; a new season of productions from the Univeristy’s own performing arts societies. With LUST again broadening their horizons producing two full length shows this season and LUDS emphasising original writing and less time-consuming opportunities with their rebranded WriteNight. Therefore this semester is the perfect time to get involved, whether as a performer or as a spectator.
The looming new semester sees societies putting on open auditions for any university students which are being held this week. Greg Vicary, co president of LUDS, stated they are “looking for people who want to have fun and are willing to give acting a try.” So people of all abilities and experience are more than welcome.
For those of us more comfortable in the audience than on the stage there’s a short wait until the curtain opens in the Stanley Theatre with LUDS ‘Fat Pig’. A play about body awareness and the culture of fat shaming, beginning its run on the 16th of June. If you can’t wait until then to scratch your dramatic itch, The Liverpool Revue will be performing at the always cosy 81 Renshaw Street on Saturday the 5th of March.
