General Info

Presenting "Don't Stop the Music 2: from stage to screen", our exciting new production for March 2018. A feel-good show featuring a packed programme of show-stopping hits from some of the world's best-loved musicals as well as bringing to life some of our favourite songs from the movies, including James Bond, The Bodyguard, Moulin Rouge, Miss Saigon, The Book of Mormon, Avenue Q, Les MisÚrables and many more besides.

 

We warmly welcome you to an introductory evening on Tuesday 10th October at 8pm at Velmead School, Fleet. We will be holding open singing and dance audition workshops on Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th October. Details can be found on below. If you want to be involved in "Don't Stop the Music 2" but don’t want to commit to the full rehearsal schedule, this is the perfect show for you! We are welcoming everyone to come along and audition, you can be involved as much or as little as you want. It promises to be a lot of fun with plenty of chorus work, solos, duets and a considerable amount of dancing, in different styles. We are putting on 4 performances from Thursday 22nd March until Saturday 24th March, including a matinee.
