Auditions for our 2020 Show

Auditions for our 63rd Annual Chelmsford Gang Show will take place on Sunday 13th October 2019
at Columbus College Campus, Partridge Avenue, CM1 4JG.

Our 2020 Show Week is 29th April – 2nd May 2020

Come along to our friendly auditions on 13th October – you don’t need to prepare anything and you won’t have to perform anything on your own. You’ll be taught a sketch, song and dance to join in with. We’re looking for lots of effort, enthusiasm and smiling faces.

Auditions will begin at 2pm and finish at 5pm. We hope to announce those that have been selected for the cast by the end of the session.

If you’re not able to come along on the 13th, there will be an opportunity to audition on Wednesday 16th; details of this session will be provided when we receive your application form. Applicants must be active members of Scouting or Guiding in the Chelmsford District or Divisions and must remain so until the end of our show week. Those who aren’t will be asked to leave. All applicants must be aged under 25, and not turn 25 before the end of our show week.

Uniform isn’t required for auditions but will be required for the show week.

If you don’t want to complete the form online, you can download a printable version and post it back to us.

Please note that auditions for solo singing parts will take place a few weeks after the auditions.

Rehearsals will start on the 20th October at The Columbus College Campus, with cast arriving at 1:45pm and leaving at 5pm each week. If selected to be part of the cast, you’ll be required to attend rehearsals each Sunday afternoon up until Christmas. In the New Year, we’ll try to schedule rehearsals so that you get some Sundays off. As all of our Gang are active Scouts or Guides, we accept that Group, Troop or Unit activities will have preference until the end of January but from the start of February, we expect Gang Show to have preference over everything else, including holidays.

Online registration is now closed  but you’re still welcome to turn up to auditions on the day. Please download an application form to print and complete, and bring it along with you
