Op Soc Plan for Autumn Show

Rob Spurway Wellington Operatic Sociecty February 13, 2021 4 Comments

We are delighted to bring to your attention the plans for the next show at the Arts Centre. No date is decided obviously but this does not mean we will not be ready to roll out this production as soon as it is safe and secure to do so.

The production is open to all members and new members, people who would like to rejoin or join the Arts Association.

We hope this information will encourage you all to look forward to another show stopping evening in the revamped/refurbished/redecorated Arts Centre.

A WALK WITH LLOYD-WEBBER

Please find here the proposed play list for the ‘autumn’ show. It is not definitive and if you wish to choose a different song from a particular show you are welcome to do so. However, even if your audition is great it does not mean that your choice will take precedent over the choice of the Director.

The YouTube versions are for you to hear each song as some of them are lesser known. These will not necessarily be the versions used, it will depend upon the accessibility of backing tracks.

Where no song is identified from a specific musical it is because it will be dependent on the person auditioning (male or female), and those can be decided by the auditionee.

Auditions will take place at the end of MARCH via the internet and so feel free to choose a backing track yourself.

Please notify me BEFORE March 20th of your choice for audition. I will then schedule Facetime/messenger/WhatsApp auditions accordingly.

Successful auditionees will be notified by the end of April. You will then be notified of the backing track to use and will be expected to learn your song(s) by the end of August.

The intention is that as soon as the A/C is available we can then start rehearsing choreography and production without having to spend time on solos and duets – company numbers will obviously need time when we are all together.

This show MAY not happen in the Autumn, however, we intend to have it ready to roll out as soon as we can, not having to wait but getting something on the stage at the earliest opportunity.

Thank you for your interest,

Nancy Powell-BraceDirector
