OUTTS Committee 2023/24

The Threepenny Opera, MT18 [3].jpg
  • President - Finley Bettsworth (president@)
    I’m a second year studying Medicine at Brasenose College, though sometimes I seem to be doing far more theatre than degree! I first got involved in theatre back in school, mainly doing sound and lighting design, and since then I’ve been hooked. Since coming to Oxford, TAFF has been a really big part of my time at uni, literally since Freshers’ Week. Since being here, I’ve mainly been doing lighting, but occasionally dabble in sound and other aspects too. I find the student theatre vibes here really lovely and fun, as well as being really rewarding so I’m excited to get more people (Freshers and everyone else too!!) involved over the next year. I was so lucky to quickly get to know (and learn tonnes from) so many TAFF members which has been awesome, and I really look forward to this continuing.
