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 2023-24 Committee
President: Max Mason
Hello! I’m Max, and I run Brickhouse this term. My Cambridge career has straddled directing, writing (and a bit of!) acting — working across Shakespeare (A Midsummer Night’s Dream & Love’s Labour’s Lost) musical theatre (my own shows, Field of Folk and Foresight) and directing opera.
Favourite show: The Crucible by Arthur Miller
Vice-President: Hugo Williamson
Hi, I’m Hugo, a second year music student at Robinson. I’m usually found acting or (more recently) writing around Cambridge theatre, and am really excited to be Vise-Pres for our resident theatre company! Recently, i’ve been involved in everything from student written theatre (Then We Fall), Musical theatre (Sunday in the Park) and Opera (Britten’s Curlew River)!
Favourite show: Sondheim’s Company (Sam Mendes direction, see the illegal youtube videos)
Social Media and Outreach Officer: Wahida Seisay
Hey guys I’m Wahida, a second year education student at Robinson. I’m the Social Media and Outreach officer so it’s my role to make sure you hear about every and anything to do with Brickhouse and most importantly, you view it as a place that you belong in! You’ll probably find me directing a play because it’s what I love to do and I’ve recently been involved in BME Shakespeare where we put on Twelfth Night 🙂
Favourite Show: Blues For An Alabama Sky – National Theatre Version x
Technical Director: Stephanie Cho
Hello, I’m Steph, a third year computer science student from Churchill (yes, non-Robinson members exist!). I’m your point of contact for all things tech in Brickhouse, whether it’s “can I build this” or “I want to get involved in tech”. I usually do stage management and lighting but I can help with any tech questions you have (read: find someone who knows the answer to your question). Recently I’ve been involved in various musicals: Spring Awakening, Sunday in the Park with George etc. as a techie.
Favourite show: Les Mis, specifically the 25th anniversary version. Or the 2019 in concert.
Social Secretary: Beck Walker
Hi, I’m Beck, a third year historian at Robinson and I’m so excited to be Social Secretary for Brickhouse this year! I think the social side of theatre is so important to encourage production, technical and acting roles to come together, and I can’t wait to see all the fun events we have planned for this year happen! I’m usually a writer, actor or director, and you can usually find me crying over missing scores or attempting to place a far-too-impractical set onto the ADC stage. Currently I am a Footlight and am directing The Drowsy Chaperone.
Favourite show: The Last Five Years (the Southwark Playhouse version).
