President: Adam Thompson
Adam is a third year History and Politics student. After serving as NUTS Social Sec last year he is climbing the greasy pole of the Student Union and hopes to become Prime Minister of the UK by next year. His favourite role has been Uncle Jim/Albert in DOT, and directing with Hattie for Henrik Ibsen’s A Doll’s House.
Secretary: Ruaidhri Johnston
Ruaidhri (not Rory) has been in NUTS longer than most of us have been alive, and is returning to reprise his role as Secretary. Along with starring in every show he can, he will be continuing his English Literature degree, just like the rest of us. His favourite NUTS show has been The Producers (2014).
Treasurer: Oliver Coury
Oliver has returned from his year abroad in Australia and is ready to finish his economics degree and his third year in NUTS. Having acted and directed, Oliver is keen to complete the trifecta of surges to power and fulfil his role on the exec. His favourite role has been co-directing And Then There Were None and his favourite show has been Jennifer Haley’s The Nether.
Social Secretaries: Hattie Rawson and Leo MacNeill
Hattie is a third year English Literature student – her favourite NUTS productions have been playing Alice in Jim Cartwright’s TWO, and (of course) co-directing A Doll’s House with Adam. Her favourite snack is milk.
Returning for his second round at being a fresher, ex-languages student Leo ‘ripping up the exec rule books’, as our only first year on the team. Hoping his Yemeni heritage will give him an edge during socials, he plans on reminding everyone of this niche fact whenever he can. His favourite show has been Dramafest/Fringe’s Big Trouble, written by Joe Hodgson.
Technical Director: Callum Turnor
Callum is a third year Geography and Politics student. having been in a range of offstage roles for the past two years he is looking forward to being Tech Director. Despite a brief onstage excursion at Drama Fest, he has decided that he belongs behind the lights rather than under them. His favourite NUTS show has been And Then There Were None. (2017)
Lucy briefly exited NUTS in her second term for sunny Vermont, but she is looking forward to returning and continuing her English Literature degree. Her favourite show has been Julius Caesar, which she directed in her second year – but if she had to choose a show that wasn’t her own, it’d be Anything Goes.
Elle Money and Ellie Stephenson
Elle is set to become a third year Economics student this year, and is on the exec for the second year in a row after a stint as Treasurer. She enjoys organisation and budgeting far too much, she is basically Ellie’s boring alter-ego. After teching or producing 7 shows in 2017/18 she is looking forward to chilling out and being a director in Semester One of this year.
Ellie is a fourth year Fine Art student if you couldn’t already tell by the mad hair. She loves working backstage in the dark, has excellent night vision, can use a sewing machine and has her own power drill. She has a knack for sourcing and making obscure props and costumes. Her favourite show to produce was The Great Gatsby where she made her onstage debut ‘acting’ as a tipsy party guest.
Marketing Director: Phoebe Clothier
After spending a long summer renovating this website, Phoebe is ready to give up her English Literature degree and go into website design full time. The thought of going on stage gives her minor heart palpitations, but after directing Laura Wade’s Posh and producing Edinburgh Fringe’s Big Trouble, she won’t be far from NUTS in third year.
