IF YOU are a fan of Gilbert and Sullivan’s entertaining comic operettas then now’s your chance to get involved.
The Huddersfield Gilbert and Sullivan Society is holding auditions for a show which will be staged at the Lawrence Batley Theatre next May.
The society is keen to attract new, young people for principal work or chorus in a production of The Mikado, to be staged from May 11-15 next year. Auditions for principal roles take place on October 21 at Waverley House, Waverley Road.
While auditions for chorus rehearsals start in January.
Audition pieces are available on the group’s web site www.huddsgssoc.co.uk or further enquiries can be made to Bryan Crowther on 01484 310 221 or Elaine Merlin 01484 862 743.
And if you want to get a sneak preview of the sort of music that you might get from a Gilbert and Sullivan society, why not head for Salendine Nook Baptist Church tomorrow (October 10).
Singers from Huddersfield Gilbert and Sullivan Society will be performing an Evening of Ballads, Sons and Snatches as part of the church’s annual season of concerts.
The music will begin tomorrow at 7.30pm and tickets are £5 on the door.
The concert programme at the Baptist Church runs until next May and the next concert is in November when there will be a performance by Clifton Handbell Ringers as well as songs from Mark Denton and Friends.
