We are a friendly and closely knit group of people who enjoy each other’s company and share a love of musical theatre. We welcome new members who feel they can commit to our busy rehearsal schedule and contribute to our timetable of fundraising activities that help to keep our valued society financially secure.
If you’re 18 or over and are interested in becoming an acting member, please complete the application form below. You will then be invited for a short informal audition during which we will ask you to sing a song of your choice, read a few lines from a script that we provide on the night and learn a short sequence of dance steps just to prove you don’t have two left feet!
We will then let you know by letter whether or not you were successful – that’s all there is to it!
Our main rehearsal night is Wednesday with additional rehearsals for principals on Thursday evenings. As we approach the show, we hold Sunday afternoon rehearsals to facilitate full run throughs.
Every production is different and the skills we need in the cast and chorus can vary so everyone has to audition for each production to ensure that we have the appropriate acting membership on stage each time.
Non-acting membership is for those acting members who are not intending to appear in our major production in any particular year, but who would like to perform in one or more of our fundraising concerts.
Associate membership is for those who don’t wish to tread the boards, but would like to take an active role within the company. That could be backstage, in the dressing room, helping Front Of House at our ever-busier productions or helping us fundraise throughout the year.
Our subscriptions are very reasonable as we ask a lot of our members in terms of fundraising and we like to reflect our appreciation of this by offering affordable rates of membership.
