Swaffham Bulbeck Summer Theatre
Join the Chorus
Although many cast member have been involved for a long time, new members are always welcome. No prior experience is necessary, and we don’t audition for the chorus. An ability to read music is very helpful, but not essential.
We do not charge for membership, but we do ask the cast to contribute towards the cost of insurance which is usually around £12.
Auditions for principal roles are held in late November and involve both singing and reading libretto. Audition details will be posted on this website, and on our Facebook page every autumn.
SBST is very fortunate to have the support of a group of talented musicians who accompany the performances.
Due to the small amount of space we have available, the orchestra is comprised of woodwind, brass, percussion and a double bass. The higher string parts are covered by the piano.
If you’re not interested in performing, but would like to be involved, there are usually vacancies for back-stage help.
