Carol singers

Would you like the chance to appear on The Lyceum stage this Christmas? 

We are recruiting a community choir made up of Edinburgh and Lothian residents to sing carols as part of our festive show. If you are over 18, in fine singing voice, can commit to up to 2/3 rehearsals a week from late September, and between 7-10 shows over the festive period then we would love to hear from you.

AUDITIONS
We will be holding auditions for choir members however please note we are not looking for professional singers just people who love to sing and can hold a tune. You will not need to prepare for these auditions and you will not be expected to sing solo. Auditions will be held by the choir master who will sing through traditional carols with you from the show. Participants will then be asked to sing these back as part of the full group and then split into smaller groups to sing. There will be some movement required while singing in the choir such as coming on and off the stage while singing so we will also try out singing and some simple moving at the same time. Singing and walking is harder than it looks!  Please wear comfortable clothes and bring a water bottle

Auditions slots will be available to book in mid-August, and will be held in September. We'll be in touch once audition slots are available to book. Register your interest:

AVAILABILITY
If you are selected to perform in our community choir you will be expected to commit to rehearsals from late September 2022. Rehearsals will be Saturday afternoons, Sundays with a possible one evening a week added in as we get closer to the show. You will not be expected to attend all sessions and more information will be available as part of the audition pack. The rehearsals are a chance to learn the songs, the movement on stage and to rehearse with our professional actors. It is essential that you are available for our run through and technical/dress rehearsals - dates to be confirmed at the auditions. For performances, please bear in mind that you may be asked to perform on weekends, early mornings for our schools dates, external promotional events and on key Christmas dates like 24th, 26th, 30th & 31st December.
