Story synopsis to follow.
 

Auditions for this year’s production will be held on September 4th and 5th at James’s Church, St James’s Gardens, W11.

Auditions are open to all 9 – 18 year olds who enjoy singing. Commitment to the rehearsal schedule is far more important than previous voice training; auditions will be in two sections:
Music – auditionees should prepare a short solo song, to be memorised and sung unaccompanied.
A starting note may be requested.  Please try to act, conveying the character of the song.
Remember to smile, speak and sing loudly, project and enjoy!
Drama – the Movement Director will run informal drama workshops.
