It’s been a long time coming but we’re so excited to bring Chelmsford Gang Show back for 2022!
Our 2022 Show Week is 24th – 30th April 2022.
Come along to our friendly auditions on 7th November 2021 – 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’ll confirm the location with you closer to the date by emailing the address(es) on your form. 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 7th, there may be an opportunity to audition at a later date – let us know on your application form and we will confirm this with you. 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 over 10½ and under 25 at the 30th April 2022.
Uniform isn’t required for auditions but will be required for the show week.
Please note that auditions for solo singing parts will take place a few weeks after the auditions.
Rehearsals will start on the afternoon of the 14th November, with the venue and exact times to be confirmed. 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.
