Mikado character notes
As potentially the best known operetta in the G&S canon, Rae suggests that there isn’t much she can tell you about the characters that hasn’t been said a million times before. But she’s looking to make the production vibrant, relevant and perhaps a little off kilter, is open to all interpretations, and looks forward to seeing at the auditions what you can bring to the party. Do read her brief at this link.
Only a week to go!
The first rehearsal night for The Mikado will be next Wednesday, 23 August from 7.30pm to 9.30pm in Whitefield. Please do all you can to encourage friends, relations, neighbours and colleagues to come and join the chorus and/or audition for principal rôles!
There are two audition dates, Monday 28 August and Wednesday 6 September, the latter at the end of the rehearsal. Do take a look at the audition pieces, and book your slot with Mary Alexander by e-mailing ku.gro.ssagdnull@snoitidua (or phoning her on 01383 737441).
Key Mikado dates!
Our next show will run at Carnegie Hall from Thursday 22 February to Saturday 24 February, with a Saturday matinée. The first rehearsal night will be Wednesday 23 August at 7.30pm in Whitefield. Do encourage your friends to give us a try, especially if they enjoyed our sing-along Iolanthe.
So far we have one audition date, Monday 28 August, but there may be other auditions at the end of a Wednesday rehearsal. Extra dates later … meanwhile, take a look at the audition pieces. Rae will be producing some character descriptions closer to the auditions.
