More details about the shows and ticket booking available at http://www.twoshadesofblue.org.uk/preview2009.php . I'm not in any of the shows as I'm techying for them in Edinburgh, so I'll probably just be shouting "Lights Up" and "Lights Down" at appropriate moments due to the lack of actual stage in the Old Labs. I did help with writing some of Comedy and Cake though. --Androidkiller

December - March: [His Dark Materials] - in two parts; two three-hour plays at Olivier theatre in London. Tickets went on sale today (you can acquire them from the site linked). Performances start at 7pm on some days and 7.30 on others; there are also 2pm matinees, and it is possible to see both plays on the same day. Tickets are going very quickly - the site was pretty much unusable all day - and a large outing will probably be impossible to coordinate.
The run finishing 27th March is sold out. There will be a revival from November to next April, for which tickets are now [on sale].
Ballroom Blitz happened on 25th August at the Royal Festival Hall (London). StuartFraser was one of maybe 25 members of CDC who went, (there were perhaps 30 from OUDC and a few others from other universities) and had great, if somewhat tiring, fun.
