Come along to our friendly auditions on 26th January – 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 4pm – 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 26th, let us know on the application form and we’ll make alternative arrangements.
Applicants must be active Cub Scouts in the Chelmsford District and must remain so until the end of our show week. Those who aren’t, won’t be able to remain in the Gang. All applicants must be aged between 8 and 11 at the end of April 2020. Unfortunately, the Mini Gang isn’t open to members of the Guiding movement.
Uniform isn’t required for auditions but full uniform, incuding Scout trousers, will be required for the show week.
Rehearsals will start on the 2nd February at The Columbus College Campus, with cast arriving at 2pm and leaving at 4pm most weeks, although some rehearsals may run until 4:45pm. If selected to be part of the cast, Cubs will be required to attend rehearsals each Sunday afternoon up until the show. As all of our Mini Gang are active Cubs, we accept that Pack, Group or District activities will have preference until the end of February but from the start of March, we expect Gang Show to have preference over everything else, including holidays.
To assist with the cost of the rehearsal venue, refreshments, costumes etc. there will be a fee of £15 per person to join the Mini Gang. This will be payable at the first rehearsal on February 2nd.
The easiest way to register is by completing the form below but if you’d prefer, you can download the form to print and return to us.
