Time to get down to casting our next show! Gondoliers auditions are on Sunday 5th November from 3pm at Streatley Village Hall. For those who can't make that date, there will be an opportunity to have your audition videoed after our rehearsal on Tuesday 31st October. This will be viewed by the auditioning panel on the Sunday along with the other auditions.
You will find all the audition information you need here.
Audition forms need to be handed in to Paula no later than 10pm on Tuesday 31st October and auditionees need to be members or pay an audition fee in advance.
We are performing The Gondoliers at the Queen Mother Theatre in Hitchin on 21st - 24th March and again at the International Gilbert and Sullivan Festival in Harrogate on Thursday 9th August at Harrogate Theatre. We will be opening the Festival! Please specify if you can do either or both as we are auditioning for Hitchin and Harrogate at the same time.
Time to launch our gondola...

A big thank to all of you who came and supported our production of A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum - your laughter made all the hard work and madcap running around worthwhile. We've had a wonderful week presenting it to you with as much fun-off stage as on. It was indeed 'something for everyone'.
Our next production will be Gilbert and Sullivan's glorious The Gondoliers, 21-24 March 2018, so we will be staying in Italy but moving to Venice where the streets, 'due to an unusually wet season', appear to be flooded. And in August we will be taking our Gondoliers production to the International Gilbert and Sullivan Festival in Harrogate. More on that exciting news to come!
We launch Gondoliers on Tuesday 17th October when Director Graham Breeze and Musical Director Sue Trost will be telling us all about the production and taking us through the music. The sing-through is always huge fun. If you would like to join us for Gondoliers, both on stage and off, new members are always made welcome. Just come along and introduce yourself. You will find contact and rehearsal details here.
