Rehearsals are held twice a week, from 7.45pm - 10.00pm on Mondays and Thursdays at Goodmayes Methodist Church, Percy Road, Goodmayes. We also rehearse on some Sundays in the lead-up to a show.
New Members’ Auditions
We hold new members' auditions on a rehearsal night (Monday or Thursday) usually immediately following a Production to enable new Members to join right at the start of rehearsals. However you are welcome to apply to join at any time. Potential new Members will be asked to perform a song in front of a small committee. The song should be of your own choice and something to suit your voice. We have an accompanist available. Anyone wishing to join as a dancer will still be required to sing but should also prepare a short dance routine.
