Dirty Rotten Scoundrels auditions

It's time to make a start on our opening show of 2017! The first meeting for Dirty Rotten Scoundrels will take place at 8.30pm on Tuesday 4th October, at St Barnabas Church (146 Lavenham Road, Southfields SW18 5EP), following the Cygnet 2016 AGM. 

So, if you're interested in finding out more about the show, our fab production team (Damian, Kris and Kim) and how you can get involved, come along! 

We're also running a series of pre-audition rehearsals before the auditions themselves, where you can go through the singing and dance audition pieces. Full details of all dates, including auditions, are on our auditions page.

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'!

Let's Do It!

Our Spring play slot will be filled with something a little different next May. We are very happy to welcome Ian Doswell (a founder member, who also directed Godspell and Chess for us in 1998/1999) to create and direct Let’s Do It: A Tribute to Victoria Wood.

Probably best known for her 1980s comedy series Victoria Wood: As Seen On TV and for her on-screen partnership with Julie Walters, Victoria Wood created a whole host of memorable characters, sketches and songs that remain in the hearts of the nation.

Let’s Do It is a celebration of her work, that recreates some of the classic sketches from As Seen on TV, along with some of the most memorable characters from her stand-up routines. The show also pays tribute to her musical brilliance, using some of her well-known and less familiar songs.

Let’s Do It promises you an evening of laugh-out-loud memories, and even a few tears, as we remember the inimitable Victoria Wood in true Cygnet style. 

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.
