Auditions and Recruitment

Chorus Rehearsals: Wednesday 7:30pm

Soloists Rehearsals: Thursday Evenings
Venue: St Andrew's Church, London NW3 7DY

We have vacancies for chorus singers in all parts (soprano, alto, tenor, bass), as well as for actors, dancers and stage crew. We would be delighted to welcome anyone interested in working with the company to come to one of our open auditions, where you will be asked to sing a short piece of your own choice.

For chorus singers an ability to read music is helpful, though not essential. More important is a good ear and a willingness to get up on stage (not as frightening as it sounds!). The most important qualities, however, are enthusiasm and commitment.

Open soloist auditions are held for every production.

Thursday 5th December 7:15pm
Thursday 9th January 7:15pm
