Current members of the society, who would like to participate in the chorus only, are being invited to come and meet with the show’s Director – Daniel Sinfield – and Musical Director – Josh Geddes – from: 7pm – 8pm on the 11th of June.

Auditionees will be expected to present an item in English with preference for music from the opera or operetta repertoire. If you would like to be considered for a specific role you may be asked to present a section of that character’s aria in a call back.

As part of the audition you will be expected to read one or more extracts from the show. At call backs you may be asked to read dialogue with a partner as a short scene study.

Those wishing to perform in productions will usually be required to audition. As well as this general audition, Musical Directors and Directors may decide to audition individual chorus members not known to them or the society. Anyone wishing to take on a principal role needs to prepare and present the set audition selection for that role during the formal auditions for the show. A performance fee of $50 adults/ $40 concession to cover costumes, suppers, insurance, etc, is payable by all members taking part in a show. This is in addition to the yearly membership fee to the Gilbert and Sullivan Society of Victoria which is currently set at $50 adults/ $40 concession.

All performers must be members of the society. Those not already members will have an opportunity to join at the commencement of the rehearsal period.

If you have any queries, please don’t hesitate to reach out to the society by email.
