Current SHOW


Wed 4th – Sat 7th September 2024
Putney Arts Theatre

On the streets of Dublin, an Irish musician and a Czech immigrant are drawn together by their shared love of music. Over the course of one fateful week, an unexpected friendship and collaboration quickly evolves into a powerful but complicated love story, underscored by emotionally charged music.

Featuring all of the magical songs from the critically acclaimed film, including the Oscar-winning “Falling Slowly,” this achingly beautiful, joyously uplifting show strikes an unforgettable chord in audiences and speaks to the power of music to connect us all.

There is an audition fee of £10 if you are not a current paid-up member of Cygnet Players. This can be paid at audition in cash, or by card, or please let us know if you wish to make a bank transfer in advance. If you are successful and are cast, you must then become a member of the society and your £10 audition fee will be deducted from your show fee. If you are already a member, you will not need to pay an audition fee.

Membership is £35 a year if you pay as a one-off, or only £30 when you set up a standing order. This lets you audition for both our musicals within that year, and our annual play. It also gives you members’ rates to our social events.


We are committed to making this an inclusive and diverse production which showcases the talents of our society and which gives each and every member of the cast a moment to shine. As such, there will be opportunities for singers and dancers of all genders, ethnicities and ages!
