Midsummer NODA review

What could be more fitting than to perform our first Shakespeare play - A Midsummer Night's Dream - in the year that marked the 400th anniversary of his death?

We were really proud of the production, and it seems we weren't the only ones.

Take a look below at what NODA had to say about our first foray into the world of the Bard. 

Legally Blonde audition dates

The dates are out for the first meeting, pre-audition rehearsals, and auditions for our hotly anticipated autumn 2016 musical, the south west premiere of the hit Broadway and West End show, Legally Blonde

Take a look at our auditions page for full details of times and venues (they're not all being held at our usual rehearsal venue, so make sure you check where you need to go), but the dates for your diary are: 

- Thursday 5th May - First meeting
- Tuesday 10th May - Pre-audition rehearsal
- Tuesday 17th May - Pre-audition rehearsal
- Saturday 21st May - Auditions

We look forward to seeing you at the first meeting!

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!
