Those wishing to audition/take part must be current members and should stay for further information:

8pm Audition prep.

This is primarily a principal show (23 parts), with a very limited

chorus. There will be an opportunity to learn more about the piece, and

if you are interested in auditioning for a role this is the chance for

you to sing through the songs. We will explain the process for auditions

as this will be different to normal. There is no preparation needed for

Thursday, but all that David asks is that you read the story to get an

idea of which parts may be suitable for you. If you are unsure about the

parts suitable for you, he can have a chat with you individually.

The prologue, which features most of the principle parts, will be used

for the singing audition, the other smaller roles will be covered at

audition prep over the next few weeks.
