Auditions for Cinderella - Wednesday of 1st week

This term's wonderful panto is Cinderella, and the auditions are Wednesday of 1st week.   Oh, I just said that.  That's 15th Oct.  7:30pm, Wadham Old Seminar room.  If you can't make that time, contact our new President who is also directing the panto, Ruth Weyman, ruth.weyman @ lmh.oxford.ac.uk.

Auditions for Robin Hood

Robin Hood, with or without some Plant of Doom, is the play for this term. Auditions are this Sunday, (ie 27th April) 8-10pm, in Wadham Old Seminar room. Contact this term's director, Emily, emily.burton @ wadham.oxford.ac.uk for more details or if you miss the auditions.

We are OULES once more!

Our registration with the proctors is now sorted, and so we have the 'University' back in our name.   I'll replace oules with oules throughout the website when I can be bothered.

Plans for Voles

There is a provisional plan for voles! We might go to this place!  If you're wanting to come, let Cath know: email catherine.howdle @ wadham.oxford.ac.uk.  Someone from cules is organising which plays we do etc.

Varsity Match Details

For one night only, a chance to see one of the most exciting battles of light entertainment of our time. Charley's Aunt is to be given another airing. Cambridge take the first act, we take the second, and the third act is a battle to the death - or at least to the corpse. Three acts, two casts, one play - CARNAGE! How can you miss this?

Sunday 22nd June (9th week) at 7pm in the Moser Theatre, Wadham college. Tickets £4/£3 concessions.

Flosscars has taken place!

Last night we had our annual award ceremony. For a full list of the nominations and winners, see the flosscars page. We also elected a secretary for next year, so the new committee is complete and is:
President Ruth Weyman Lady Margret Hall
President of Vice Dominic Matthos St. Benet's

Performance Times for 'Robin Hood and the Legumes of Doom'

Yes, I know I didn't get round to putting this up before the performances, but thought it should be here anyway for completeness.  Anyway, it was on Wed - Fri of 7th week, ie 11th-13th June, in Wadham Warden's Garden, at 6pm. And it was lovely, sorry if you missed it.

Lots of news

Aladdin was a huge success - very silly, big audiences, groans galore.

We went to South London for New Year and had a great view of all the fireworks across the whole city. Also spent three days in a big room with some people from Cambridge playing 3-D noughts and crosses. I think there might have been some booze too.

This term we're doing TWO PLAYS!!! There are so many of us now!! They will be 'The wind in the Willows' as adapted by James Needham and revised by Ben Parker, and 'A Charming Little Murder Mystery' as written by the wonderful Cath Howdle. Miles Gould and Dominic Mattos will be directing, auditions will be early in term and I'll shove times up here when I know.
