Audition approach:

Our approach to auditions and casting
Anyone is welcome to audition. If you're not a paid up member at the time of auditioning, you'll need to pay a £10 audition fee, which will be offset against your show fee if you're cast. In order to join the cast and perform in the show, you'll need to pay an annual membership fee (£30 standing order, or £35 cash). 

We will try to audition everyone that wants to take part; but this may not be possible if your audition form is submitted after the given deadline, or the number of available audition slots has been exceeded. 

Auditions are closed, and take place in front of a panel of at least three people, including at least one committee member, plus the show's production team. 

The cast itself

The creative team will specify the size of cast required for the show, based on the theatre capacity, along with the singing/dancing/acting skills required for each role. 

Cygnets will always strive to have a cast containing a good mix of members and non-members (where, in this context, a 'member' is either a paid up member, or has been in two or more Cygnet shows in the past), to ensure that the membership is well represented. 

The cast will be chosen by the audition panel, taking into account:
