All Shook Up: Creative Team and Audition Dates

We are excited to announce the creative team and the audition dates for our September musical, ‘All Shook Up’!

Jamie Hughes (Director) is a long standing Cygnet, having performed in countless shows and currently busy being the society’s deputy chairman! Jamie directed the very successful Secret Swan Speakeasy back in September and was recently associate director for the brand new musical ‘Just Pretend’ for PLOS. (Photo credit: Paul Aylin)

Michael Searle (MD) is a Cygnets newcomer, but a very safe pair of musical hands! He has recently MD’d the PLOS panto and is currently working on ‘Funny Girl’ - we can’t wait to have him on board.

Kim Schenkelaars (Choreographer) is no stranger to the Cygnet stage, having choreographed Dirty Rotten Scoundrels in 2017 and performing in many other shows. She is currently choreographing our next musical, ‘Spring Awakening’, so has a very busy summer ahead!

Kiss Me Kate Review

The review of our recent production of Kiss Me Kate has arrived, and our NODA representative Des Wilby was suitably impressed with his evening!

You can read the full review here, but here are some highlights:

"Phoebe Fleetham must first and foremost be congratulated for her role as Director and ensuring this production was slick, highly polished and a resounding success"

"Choreography was arranged by Vicki Rice and was simply fabulous ... , what appeared almost effortless was definitely the result of extensive rehearsal, dedication and commitment"

"Virtually on stage throughout the entire production, I was hugely impressed with the characterisation of each principal, their consistent accents and vocal ranges.  They were nothing short of superb" 

"Kiss Me, Kate’ is a demanding show for any society to perform.  All in all, this was a sparkling and energetic production, imaginatively directed with a most talented and enthusiastic cast"

Congratulations to all involved!
