Pirates is coming soon!
Our Chair, Morag Riley, writes:
We are very excited to be beginning preparations for our 2023 production of Pirates of Penzance which will see us return to the Carnegie Hall. This year it is with great pleasure that we welcome as our Director a face most known to us from the stage, Robin Ożóg. Robin has had many years experience of Gilbert and Sullivan, both as a performer of many and varied parts and as a Director. Indeed, I would go so far as to say that he is our resident expert on all things Savoyard. I can’t wait to see what he has in store for us. Robin will be assisted by Sinead Black as Assistant Director and we also welcome back Eddie MacLennan as Musical Director. A great team I’m sure you’ll agree.
Auditions will be held on Monday 4 July and Wednesday 6 July and details are on our Auditions page. We will be back rehearsing in Limekilns Church, both for chorus (Wednesday nights) and principals (Monday nights).
Rehearsals will begin on Wednesday 17 August at 7.30pm, so come along for what we hope will be an exciting time as we work toward what would have been our 50th anniversary performance. Initially Eddie will take us through the music, with a bit of ‘note bashing’, after which we will hit the floor to begin learning our moves. That’s when the fun really begins!
