The Committee oversees the running of the EUTC and Bedlam Theatre. The Committee consists of positions that run and manage everything from finances, to building maintenance, to shows coordination, to making parties awesome!
If you want to know more about what each role does, click each title below or go to the EUTC Wiki here.
Emily is from South Wales [insert totally original, never heard before sheep joke]. She is co-president of Bedlam and absolutely loves having to chair GMs because she definitely does not hate public speaking, at all! Her favourite activity in Bedlam is sitting in front of the café heater pretending she’s there to do work, but ending up chatting to everyone that comes in.
Fact: Emily once showed Ed Gamble to a seat in the comedy club she worked at, and then proceeded to tell him how shit the seat was.
As well as being one of the presidents this year, Freya is one of our resident Scots and lighting designers. However she is most importantly known as the proud owner of an [almost] exclusively black wardrobe. She lives for the drama of theatre, particularly design (you can often find her staring at the rig in awe). This year she hopes to encourage as many people as possible to also fall in love with it and our little building too - she cannot wait to meet you!
Fact: Shook hands with Phoebe Waller-Bridge. Never shuts up about it.
India is from Middlesbrough in the North East of England and her father is actually a steelworker - you can’t get more stereotypical than that! She enjoys doing admin, a trait that has led many people to question her sanity. Feel free to chat to her about anything, she welcomes the distraction from her mortal enemy: The Bedlam Calendar.
Fact: India is somewhat of a medieval apothecary worker and always has a herbal tea on hand to heal any ailment.
Miki’s from St. Andrews meaning he is expected to walk around in tweed all the time and be very posh. As Business Manager, you’re supposed to like money and being from St. Andrews, he loves money. He loves a bit of programming and being up ladders in ways that are concerning to risk assessment writers.
Fact: For almost all of 1st year, Miki ate 4 apples a day and now doctors run when they see him.
One of Bedlam’s token Scottish people. Having spent a year within Bedlam coiling cables, scraping moss and blacklisting the term ‘stage cupboard’, Lewis is thrilled to be spending a year doing the exact same activities - just this time he can’t be judged, as it’s now his committee role.
Fact: Lewis is pretty much allergic to everything in Bedlam. Does that stop him? No.
Luca is an American person and that’s all there is to her. Luca is the Front of House Manager and has (unwillingly) developed a silly, high-pitched costumer service voice. Luca started dyeing her hair green at age 12, and she primarily builds sets on shows so gets splinters for fun and profit.
Fact: Luca is very fond of a stuffed frog you can find in Bedlam named Jeremy.
Lauren is from Wells, Somerset and so she has been skipping through fields and drinking cider since she could walk. Lauren is Bedlam’s Productions Manager and has a habit of signing up for an obscene amount of shows. She is extremely excited to have keys to Bedlam, as she spent most of her first year getting locked out.
Fact: Lauren has six siblings and regularly loses track of how old they all are.
Martha is this year’s Dutch committee member. She is the Tech Manager and enjoys nothing more than spending time on the rig with her friends.
Fact: Martha lost her horse finger puppet in the Church Hill Theatre. Please keep an eye out for him if you’re there.
Don’t ask Holly where she is from. She will lie to you. Holly is the the Set Manager and can often be found in Bedlam trying to convince people to join the set team, or furiously cleaning the kitchen.
Fact: Holly cannot get a GP appointment as doctors avoid her by proxy, in freshers someone on her corridor stole and ate four apples a day for the year
Another American has joined committee (sorry)! Chloe’s from the cornfield and Starbucks bit where you cook everything in butter. She loves clothes but dresses terribly (it’s cold don’t judge) and has a secret list of my favourite Bedlam items that she tries to sneak into every show regardless of whether it makes sense or not.
Fact: Chloe used to be a coxswain in high school and at Edinburgh; steering the long boats (not fun) and shouting at men (will continue doing so for the rest of her life).
Jack is from London (sorry about that) and he is the Social Events Manager so basically he’s loud. He loves Bedlam but, he can’t lie, the crypt kinda freaks him out.
Fact: At one point Jack was so convinced he was a wizard that halfway through year 4 he told everyone he was leaving to go to Hogwarts (and maybe he did…)
Jemima is from Bristol and so feels a strong affinity with pirates and combine harvesters. She is the marketing manager and engagement officer and has sworn an eternal blood oath to Canva. Her favourite thing to do in Bedlam is look at the posters in the café and wonder about our ancestors.
Fact: Jemima appeared on CBeebies as a child. She can also read palms (if you ask nicely).
