Audition applications for our May 2019 production of Handel’s “Partenope” are now open.  Auditions will be in November; performances will be at Jacksons Lane Theatre, Highgate, from May 17 – May 26. Applications must be received by us by November 20th.

Please read the audition notice carefully, before applying for an audition slot.


Rehearsals patterns have been evolving in recent years so may vary slightly from production to production.  The current pattern is 1 month of weekend music rehearsals,  1 month of weekend production rehearsals, followed by an intensive fortnight of Monday to Friday, 10:30 – 17:30.  Sitzprobe and Stage Rehearsals for the week leading up to opening night on Friday, during the day and evenings.  Not everyone will be called for every rehearsal and individual member’s NAs (“not available” dates) of which sufficient notice is given will be taken into account as far as practicable. Other rehearsals may be called as the need arises.


We stage two productions a year, in May and November, at Jacksons Lane Theatre. Principals are normally double cast.

Performances take place over a two week run, usually on the Friday and Saturday nights and Sunday afternoon of week one and on Tuesday to Friday evenings, Saturday matinee and evening and Sunday afternoon of week two.
