Our Approach

We have a traditional approach to staging our shows.

We rehearse weekly, normally starting music rehearsals in April or May, breaking for the summer and then returning in September to production rehearsals. 

We think this approach gives a family feel to the group and enables focused rehearsals allowing all of our cast to develop their character and skills,  which we think pays off in our performances.

We are thrilled to be able perform in The Royal Auditorium and hope to see you soon at our show.
