Top News for 2018
"We're puttin' on our top hats, tyin' up our white ties, brushin' off our tails."
And that's exactly what we'll be doing in February of 2018, when we'll be bringing one of the greatest dance musicals of all time to the London Oratory Stage...
We're absolutely thrilled to be one of the first amateur companies to be granted the rights to TOP HAT. Packed full of classic Irving Berlin tunes, including Cheek to Cheek, and Puttin' on the Ritz, Top Hat transports you to a world of 1930s Hollywood glamour.
And we don't know about you, but we can't wait to 'face the music and dance'!
Communication is key
Keeping our potential audiences informed about our upcoming productions is a crucial ingredient in the success of a show.
One of the groups of people we target are audience members who have bought on Ticketsource and selected ‘yes’ to receiving marketing communications from us.
Email marketing in Gmail is our chosen channel for keeping these customers up to date. This was pretty simple until last autumn, when Gmail became much stricter about the number of emails we could send before being frozen out of our account, or being identified as spam.
It was then our Communications Manager discovered GMass, which has a load of features we could use, but, most importantly for us, it enables us to send a show-specific email to a large number of recipients.
Thanks to GMass we can continue to send out emails to this important potential audience.

"Rachel Kitchen (Elle) was ideal for the role and her transformation from a blonde airhead to a strong savvy woman really gave the show backbone and was delivered to perfection"
"Kate Chesworth played the comedic role of Paulette and this was an example of perfect casting. Her facial expressions alone had me laughing along with Paulette, with the Irish section in Legally Blonde remix being a perfect example."
"This is a fun production which is worth seeing for Rachel Kitchen as Elle alone. It stays true to the spirit of Legally Blonde and they balance the froth on the surface well with its true message of looking beneath the surface. Well done to all at Cygnet players for another success!"
"It really was a bright and lively piece, which sits up there with several previous Cygnets shows."
"The show's final number, 'Look at me', left me in tears - these three ladies were a true triumph and all equally impressive."
"The production line of outstanding productions continues apace. Congratulations to all involved."
"The was an excellent production of a technically complex show, and should be considered a great achievement for this rapidly expanding company."
"Charlotte Donald, Helen Burgess-Bartlett and Rhian Roberts effectively owned the stage each time they appeared, ensuring all eyes were upon them, and playing off each other very effectively."
