Welcome to the Brickhouse Theatre Company!
Based in Robinson College, part of the University of Cambridge, we put on a number of student-led events and productions every year, including plays, musicals, comedy nights and the annual pantomime!
We are always looking for exciting new (or interesting takes on old) productions to put on in our college’s 240-seater Auditorium, which is decked out with an array of A/V and lighting equipment.
Apply to put on a show!

The Brickhouse Theatre Company 2018-19 Committee
Co-Presidents: Luke and Molly
Hi, I am Luke, a fourth year Geographer from Robinson College. Over the last two years I have served as Publicity Manager and Vice President on the Brickhouse Theatre Company committee, during which time I have been involved in the staging of over 20 shows in the Auditorium, college gardens, college chapel, ADC Theatre and at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. I am very excited to be taking over as co-president this year and hope to be able to continue fostering Brickhouse’s reputation as an accessible and inclusive theatre company with, in particular, an excellent reputation for musical theatre. As well as being involved in production team roles including directing Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and producing A Very Brexit Musical and Spring Awakening at Brickhouse, I have also performed in a number of shows in Cambridge including The Producers and How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying at the ADC Theatre, Anything Goes at Magdalene Auditorium, and Don’t Ever Change at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. If you are interested in being a part of any of our shows, want to apply to direct/produce, want to steward, are interested in being a part of the committee, or just want to chat about theatre, please do send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) – I would love to hear from you!
Hi, I am Molly, a third year Geographer from Robinson College. Over the last three years I have been on the Brickhouse Theatre Company Committee as Secretary and Publicity Manager. I am very excited to be taking on co-president this year. BTC is a wonderful theatre society that advocates inclusion and creativity and we are always looking for new and exciting projects! I have performed a number of times on the Brickhouse stage myself in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and Back to the 80s. I have also been lucky enough to stage my own original musical, A Very Brexit Musical, with Brickhouse who are also funded our 5-star, Edinburgh Fringe run in August 2018. I would highly recommend pursuing as many theatrical endeavours as you can whilst in Cambridge, and BTC offers a professional, sophisticated and innovative environment in which to do so. Please do get in touch if you have any further questions, we look forward to hearing your ideas!
Vice President: Jonathan
Hi, I’m Jonathan, a second year Music student at Emmanuel. In my time at Cambridge so far I’ve primarily been involved in theatre as an actor, ranging from The Ruling Class at the ADC to Brilliant Adventures at the Corpus Playroom. I also performed in Brickhouse’s Spring Awakening, where I absolutely fell in love with the company. This is my first committee role in Cambridge, but I’m really excited to work alongside Molly and Luke as vice-president over the next year to keep strengthening Brickhouse as a place for inclusive, high-quality theatre. If you have any less formal questions about Brickhouse, or about theatre in Cambridge in general (especially if you’re new to the scene!), feel free to contact me – I’m always happy to chat about theatre!
I became involved with BTC from fresher’s week. My first ever theatrical audition was for the company’s very own Very Brexit Musical and as luck would have it, I got a part. Since then, I stewarded a few shows and choreographed Spring Awakening. I applied for the role of treasurer as Brickhouse has always been a welcoming company for students across Cambridge and delivers quality productions – especially musicals!
Technical Director: Richard
Hi, I’m Richard, a second-year Engineering student at Trinity Hall. During my role as lighting designer for Brickhouse’s ‘Spring Awakening’, I worked closely with Peter (the previous technical director) and learnt a huge amount about the technical side of running the Robinson Auditorium. My role is to oversee the lighting, sound and recording of Brickhouse shows, and act as a point of contact between a show’s technical team and the college’s AV department. I’ll also show prospective lighting and sound designers how to use our equipment and solve any problems they may have – I’d like to make sure everyone can have a go at theatre tech, regardless of previous experience! Please do get in touch with any queries.
Hi, I’m Phoebe. I’m a second-year Historian at Robinson College. I got involved with Brickhouse last year, and have stayed on as Secretary this year. I have loved being involved with BTC and learning from Luke and Molly. BTC puts on a diverse range of quality shows, and always prioritise accessibility and inclusivity. I have also been involved with producing shows around Cambridge. Please send an email over (or a facebook message) if you have any queries or want to chat about BTC.
