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!

Creatives Wanted!

 Call for creatives for 'All Shook Up' and 'Shrek'


We are looking for creative teams for our Autumn show, All Shook Up, and our first 2020 show, Shrek.

Are you interested in directing, choreographing, MDing or producing one of these fabulous shows (or know someone who would be)?

If so, please email Adam at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by Friday 1st February to express your interest.

Interest from individuals and teams welcome!

All Shook Up will be performed in September at Putney Arts Theatre, and Shrek will be performed in Spring (most likely February) 2020 at London Oratory Theatre.

Spring Awakening Creative Team Announced!

We are thrilled to announce Cygnets’ first ever all-female creative team, who will be working together on our new July-slot musical, Spring Awakening!

Taking the helm is long-time Cygnet member Aimee Parnell, in her directorial debut. As well as being in many Cygnet musicals and plays, Aimee was assistant director for both Top Hat and Merrily We Roll Along this year, and we are very much looking forward to seeing what she will do with this show.

Musical direction will be in the sound charge of Harriet Oughton. Harriet has previously played in the pit for Cygnet shows (such as Top Hat) and is an extremely skilful  MD - anyone who saw PLOS’ recent production of West Side Story will attest to that!

Rounding off the team is choreographer Kim Schenkelaars. Having previously choreographed Dirty Rotten Scoundrels for Cygnets (to great success), Kim is currently choreographing the PLOS panto whilst also dancing in Kiss Me, Kate and being on the Cygnet committee - we’re sure Spring Awakening will be just the restful break she needs!

Spring Awakening will be performed at the Stockwell Playhouse from 10th to 13th of July 2019. Audition information will be available soon!
