dotSubscriptions

Subscriptions are decided at our AGM in March.   For 2019-2020 they were 40 for acting members and 20 for non-acting members and we had special rates for students, those on certain benefits and under 16s. For the current year, as there is no show, of course we haven't set a subscription but our existing members can pay a voluntary sub if they wish.

dotWe're always looking for new people!

New members are always welcome and can be any age.   If they are under 16 of course we must have their parents' consent but they are just as welcome and there have been under 16s in all of our recent shows.

Our annual Gilbert & Sullivan show is in the Autumn.    Rehearsals for it start in May. The whole company rehearses weekly on Wednesday evenings and then twice weekly on Wednesdays and Fridays from about September.   Principals rehearse twice weekly throughout.   Rehearsals start at 7.30 pm and finish about 9.30 - 9.45 pm.   You will see from our Show Page that there is no show this year.  The next one is The Mikado in October 2022.  But you can still get in touch as above if you might be interested!  We hope to have concerts and other events before then.

As well as singers, we need helpers in all theatre areas.   They generally get involved nearer the date of the show though that depends on the area they are helping with.

dotActing members singing and performing in the Show

If you want to be an acting member, come along as soon as you can to rehearsals once they start - the Events page of this website will give you the exact date and venue.  Contact us if you need more information.   Our How to Find Us page shows you where we are. See the links on this page.

Auditions for principal parts take place about four weeks after rehearsals have started. Date and venue and other details will be on the Events page.  Auditions are open to anybody, but we do urge people to get to rehearsals first if they can, so they get an idea of what's involved.

dotNon-acting members

If you are not performing in the Show but wish to participate in the Society, you can join as a non-acting member.   There are many backstage and front of house jobs that need to be done.   Let us know if you have a special area of interest, or we will find you something.   Every single job is important.

dotPatrons

You can support us by becoming a Patron.   Information here.

Singing together in G&S is fun - and so is helping to put the show together.   Come along and be part of it - once  we get going again!
