Auditions for the String! Showcase Concert

Welcome to the String Auditions!

String! is a new, professionally-commissioned, large-scale piece of community music-theatre, rooted in Hailsham and district.

Due to Covid the theatrical production has been postponed until 2022 but a concert version of the songs from the show with 12 singers and a narrator will be performed in September 2021. This will be much easier to make Covid-safe and promises to be a highlight of the festival.

Please note that when we start work on the theatrical production in 2022 we will hold a second set of auditions where the emphasis will be on acting ability as well as vocal skill.

We are now auditioning for approximately 12 singers to participate in this performance and we would like to encourage you to apply. You should be over 18 and feel comfortable singing publicly in front of an audience. You will get the opportunity to sing both solo songs and in ensembles so  you will need to be able to hold a part.

The closing date for applications is Friday, April 30th.

Auditions will be held on Saturday May 22nd and 29th at Summerheath Hall.

Rehearsals will begin in June and early July
