Hairspray NODA review

We loved doing Hairspray. When you receive standing ovations at every performance, you know you must be doing something right.

And it's lovely to read that our NODA reviewer thought so too, who was "very impressed with the degree of professionalism and enthusiasm shown by the cast". In fact, for him, "from start to finish, this was a joy", describing the show as "a real spectactular".

From our highly praised leading characters to our "large and very talented chorus", the show was a hit. Thank you Tony Sweeney at NODA, we're so glad you enjoyed the show!

Rotten news: announcing our 2017 musical!

STOP PRESS! We have some more fabulous news for you!

Fresh from its West End run and UK tour, Cygnet Players will be bringing you the new comedy musical, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, at the London Oratory School theatre in February 2017.

It's another great show to add to our lineup, which also includes A Midsummer Night's Dream, Legally Blonde, and 9 to 5.

What angel wakes me from my flowery bed?

They say "The course of true love never did run smooth." But we think you’re going to truly love today’s announcement...

We're very pleased to reveal that our 2016 play will be a modern retelling of the Shakespeare comedy classic, A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

It will be performed from Wed 18th to Sat 21st May, at St Barnabas Church, Southfields, and will be directed by the lovely Phoebe Fleetham (most recently seen in last year's play, Rumours, and a member of the Cygnet committee).  

The first meeting will be on Tuesday 23rd February, with auditions on 3rd and 6th March. Take a look at the auditions page for more information on how you can get involved.

Until then... "The iron tongue of midnight hath told twelve; Lovers, to bed; 'tis almost fairy time."

We don't know about you, but we can't wait until this particular fairy time!
