Clubs & Societies Directory
The Footlights Dramatic club offers a unique oppurtunity for Cambridge and ARU students with an interest in comedy. Our regular late-night 'Smokers' give writers and performers a chance to try out sketches, monologues, songs and stand-up in front of a sell-out crowd. The club also has open auditions - for both writers, performers and directors - for a number of its annual shows, including the Pantomime in Michaelmas Term, the Footlights Presents late show in Lent, and the flagship Tour Show in Easter (the 2001 Tour was nominated for the Perrier Best Newcomer Award at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival). With alumni ranging from Peter Cook to Richard Ayoade, Emma Thompson to Daran 'Jonno' Johnson, Footlights aims to continue its tradition of exciting, imaginative comedy.
