HMS Pinafore – Summer 2019!

My Gallant Crew, Good Morning!

We are so so excited to announce our director for Pinafore. It was such a great year for applications and were in the fortunate position of having a really hard decision to make, but we’re delighted to announce Jessica Dalton as our director. She has fantastic ideas and a wealth of great experience, we can’t wait to get started!

Come along for the open rehearsal on Jan 30th at St. Gabriels Hall to get involved!

Pop along to meet us, ask questions, and have a bit of a sing!

The open rehearsal is on the 30th January at St Gabriel’s Church Hall in Pimlico, central London from 6.45 and is open to everyone!

The show will be performed from Wednesday 2nd June to Saturday 8th June at Bridewell Theatre, Blackfriars, London

Auditions for principal roles: Wednesday 6 February and Saturday 9 February. No need to audition for chorus – enthusiasm is the only requirement to join! Email to sign up.

This year we are very excited to announce an audition workshop and Piano Bar afternoon! This will be held on 2nd February in Hammersmith – check our news page for more info, or our Facebook page!

There’s no need to audition for a chorus part, so if you’re interested in joining us, just come along to our first rehearsal on Wednesday 28th September at St Gabriel’s Church Hall!
