Dirty Rotten Scoundrels production team

The new year may feel like a long time away, but the start of rehearsals for Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, our first show of 2017, isn't... so we thought it about time we reveal the fantastic production team line up who will be leading this musical at the London Oratory School Theatre. 

In the Director's chair, we welcome back the brilliant Damian Sandys, who directed Hairspray for us, earlier this year. 

As Musical Director, we are looking forward to working with Kris Rawlinson - a newbie to Cygnets, but an experienced and great MD. 

And finally, we are very pleased to have the fabulous Kim Schenkelaars (currently appearing in Legally Blonde) move from on-stage dancer, to putting our cast through their paces as our Choreographer. 

A brilliant line up and we can't wait to get started - so keep your eyes peeled for more information on first meetings and audition dates very soon! 

Cygnets win NODA Flame Award

We're very pleased to announce that Cygnet Players won the District Three Flame Award, at the 2016 annual NODA Awards ceremony on Sunday 26th June. 

The Flame Award recognises 'the inspirational contribution for the pursuit of excellence in theatre', specifically citing our February 2016 production of Hairspray as an example of this. 

Committee member Phoebe Fleetham (pictured here) was there at the ceremony to pick up the award on our behalf. This is the second time Cygnets have been presented with this award, previously picking it up in 2012. 

A big well done and thank you to all involved with the society for helping us to keep putting on great shows that our audiences (and NODA!) love. Be it Hairspray or any of our other productions, we're proud to have such a broad, talented member base - and long may it continue. You're all fab!

NODA award nomination for Hairspray

As Tracy Turnblad herself says, "You have to dream big to be big."

And it seems that our production of Hairspray in February did just that, as we've been nominated for the Joe Putnam Trophy for Best Musical in the 2016 NODA Awards.

Well done to all involved with the show, and fingers crossed for a win!
