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 residents to sing carols as part of our festive show An Edinburgh Christmas Carol. If you are over 18, in fine singing voice, can commit to up to 2/3 rehearsals a week from October 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. Please wear comfortable clothes and bring a water bottle

You can sign up to one of our audition dates below either online or via box office 0131 248 4848:

When you arrive for your audition please let a member of the box office team know you have arrived and they will guide you in the right direction. Before the audition starts our production team will give you further information about what is expected for the show and rehearsal process. We will also be asking you for dates and times of availability so please bring along your diary! All participants are asked to bring along x2 passport photos to the audition too. 

AVAILABILITY
If you are selected to perform in our community choir you will be expected to commit to rehearsals during October and November 2019, these will be held across Wednesday evenings, Saturday and Sundays. You will not be expected to attend all sessions and more information will be available in September.  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 Saturday 16 & 23 of November for our run through and technical/dress rehearsals.  For performances, please bear in mind that you may be asked to perform on weekends, early mornings for our schools dates and on key Christmas dates like 24th, 26th, 30th & 31st December.
