We welcome anyone to audition (but please bear in mind that performances and rehearsals can be too tiring for young children – 11s and under will need adult support at all rehearsals please. Sunday afternoons will be the main rehearsals initially for children).

Rehearsals will take place at a variety of venues – St. Mary’s Church Hall, Nunthorpe (some Sundays and other rehearsals in January), Langdon Square Community Centre, Coulby Newham (Thursday nights), Marton Community Centre (Tuesday nights) and some Sunday rehearsals at Toft House (next to Middlesbrough Theatre).
