Hi there! I’m Alexander Newton the Oxford University Drama Officer for the year 2016-17. I graduated in Physics having been involved with nearly 30 productions over my three years as actor, writer, production manager, technical director and lighting designer.
As Drama Officer I co-ordinate and support all aspects of Oxford Drama – including comedy and film. I manage the University Drama Mailing List which is the central source of information regarding all productions from bidding for theatre slots, funding and auditions through to show week. I act in an advisory capacity to many student societies and help programme student work in theatres across Oxford.
I maintain and develop links between Oxford Drama and professional theatre in London and beyond. To this purpose I work closely with the office of Thelma Holt and support all activities of the Cameron Mackintosh Board and the Cameron Mackintosh Visiting Professor Claude-Michel Schönberg.
