AUDITIONS FOR 'IOLANTHE'


Auditions for the CUG&S Society’s production of ‘Iolanthe’ will be
taking place next week. The show will be at West Road Concert Hall from
3rd to 6th February. It is the society’s largest Cambridge production of
the year at one of the largest student venues in Cambridge. The show
centres around the conflict between a bunch of mischievous fairies and a
troupe of Lords as they attempt to woo the beautiful Phyllis. She,
however, is already in love with the half-man, half-fairy, Strephon and
when the pompous lords break up the couple the fairies vow revenge.
