New Member  Audition Info

Please note the membetship fees and the following for individual auditions:
  • You must provide your own sheet music for our pianist to accompany you.
  • Your audition song doesn’t have to be from a musical, as long as you feel it shows you off to your best
  • Our auditions are often very busy, so please don’t be offended if we stop you mid-song. In fact, if your favourite verse isn’t the first one, it may be best to start part way through the song, please discuss this with our pianist when you come in for your audition.
  • We prefer live piano accompaniment, however, if you would like to use a backing track, please ensure that it is Karaoke style (no pre-recorded singing) and bring along something to play it on! Please also be prepared to sing some exercises with our pianist, so that we can check that you can follow the piano.

 

Please also join our mailing list to be kept up to date!

  7. See the Rehearsal Schedule for more details, and the final schedule once we know the number of people auditioning for each part
 
As per our Constitution, we will be enforcing the attendance rules. If you miss rehearsals (without good, and forewarned reasons) then you may be asked to leave the cast. Bad attendance will also affect your chance of a future successful audition.
 
The rehearsal dates will be available on the Rehearsal Schedule. If you are auditioning for a role in the show, you will be expected to attend all of the Setting rehearsals. Not being able to attend Setting rehearsals will lessen the strength of your audition, however not declaring that you will be missing rehearsals until after you have been cast will count against your next audition!

Our Annual Membership runs between April to March each year. A membership payment is due to be paid whether you are in a performing, or non-performing role. Being a paid up member of NMTC allows you to audition for any of our shows, attend rehearsals to see ‘behind the scenes’ of our upcoming shows, as well as supporting one of the UK’s oldest amateur theatre companies.
