It’s 1BC, the gods are on high, watching the Nativity, and the villagers are elated at the prospects of the future. Unfortunately, someone isn’t happy, and maybe, sort of well, entirely annihilates the Nativity. The blame lands on Hercules, the most extraordinary hero of the Grecian era, who is tasked with 12-(ish) labours. Can he complete his missions, and restore peace to the world?
Come along to Bedlam this Christmas time for some crazy crustaceans, myth mixups and far, far too much falafel.
Edinburgh’s longest running improv troupe are back for another year! After selling out over the 2023 Fringe, the Imps cannot wait to get back to term-time fun onstage. Join them every Friday for an hour of short form improv, based entirely on audience suggestions. New players and new games mean that shows are always different, always funny!
We can’t wait for you to come and have a laugh with The Improverts and celebrate another year of critically acclaimed improv!
BAND APPLICATIONS NOW OPEN!
35MM: A Musical Exhibition is currently seeking band players to join their team! More information can be found on the link to the form - they can’t wait to see what you have to offer!
We will be holding auditions in the Bedlam office for next semester’s week 5 Mainterm. Have a read of the audition pack if you are interested!
Every Sunday 12:00 to 14:00 we do Maintenance where we tidy up the building and make some small building improvements. Everyone is welcome to help, we provide you with snacks and a good playlist.
If you have worked on a show you need to come to maintenance to tidy up after your show. If you do not, you will go into Maintenance Debt. You can clear this by coming to another Maintenance Session or talking to Lewis Eggeling (Theatre Manager). Similarly you will need to staff a show (or two if you did a mainterm) in exchange for other members staffing your show. You can sign up at https://www.bedlamtheatre.co.uk/admin/staffings
If you have any questions please contact Luca Stier at [email protected]
After Maintenance we have Duty Management (DM) training from 11:30 to 12:00. During this time, we will teach you how to run the building during a show, open and lock up the building, and what to do in case of a fire. Theatre always needs to be at least one DM trained person present when the building is in use, so being DM trained is very helpful for Production Team members!
