Meet the Committee


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!

I’m Alex and I’m a third year History and Politics student at Robinson. I was Vice-President of Brickhouse last year and am very excited continue enriching the cultural scene in Robinson with my co-president Annabelle. I’ve been involved with Cambridge theatre in many different ways: directing, writing, performing and producing.

Annabelle

Hello! I’m Annabelle, a fourth year physics student at Robinson College. I originally became involved with the Brickhouse Theatre Company through stewarding in my first year and was really impressed by the standard of writing and performance exhibited by my peers. I look forward to showcasing this again as we bring live theatre back to the Robinson Auditorium this year following a year of closure. Last year, I was the BTC treasurer and I am really excited to begin my new role as co-president with Alex. If you are interested in being a part of any of our shows, pitching your own show, stewarding,  becoming a part of the committee, or want to chat about any other aspect of Brickhouse please send me a message on Facebook or email me at al916@cam.ac.uk – I’d love to have a chat with you!
