How much does membership cost?
Membership costs £10 for the entire year. If you are only here for one term then membership costs £5.
When are rehearsals?
All rehearsals are Sundays 12-6pm, Mondays 6-10pm and Wednesdays 6-10pm.
Do I need to prepare anything for auditions?
No. All audition scripts are given on the day of the auditions, you will be given time to practise outside and then perform for the production team. All auditions run slightly differently depending on the teams, but prior preparation is not normally needed.
What do I need to bring to auditions?
Bring yourselves, some food and drink. We suggest comfortable clothing.
How do I know if I get cast?
LUTG have both auditions and then call backs. Call backs will be announced on the LUTG page in the ‘About’ section, the Sunday evening of auditions. Call backs will be Monday 6-10pm and Tuesday 6-10pm. Wednesday night is casting night. You will need to keep your phone on you from 6pm, you will be called up by the production team if you have been given a part.
What happens if I don’t get cast?
If you don’t get cast, don’t despair! Not only will we have three/four more shows every term, we also have lots of opportunities backstage. Our backstage meeting is usually the Thursday after casting, whereby you come along and meet the teams and express an interest in being part of the production teams.
What roles are there back stage?
Who do I contact regarding Welfare?
The general secretary is in charge of Welfare, so if you have a problem contact them. You can find a list of exec roles and names on our Facebook page.
Can I still come to socials even if I’m not in a show?
Yes! We welcome and appreciate all our members, everyone is equal, whether you have been cast or not. Our socials are open to all, and we urge you to come along and have a good time.
Can I be in more than one society?
You can be in more than one society, but do remember that LUTG requires a lot of commitment if you get cast in a show. 14 hours a week are spent rehearsing. You need to be able to manage your time between social activities and uni work, if you’re finding it too hard, you’re probably doing too much.
