If you can sing, dance, act, sew, saw or even just smile - We need you!
Any one can join the society, regardless of their singing or acting ability as there are many other roles available behind the scenes! However, those wishing to perform in our productions must successfully complete a small audition prior to joining.
We are always looking for new members to join our society and welcome anyone who has an interest in theatre. Even if you don't want to perform, there are plenty of other roles for you to choose from...
Becoming a member
Andover Musical Theatre Co. is made up of a diverse group of individuals with a common interest – theatre! Our members range in age from 16 to 60 (You must be at least 16 years of age to join the main Society) and a wide range of professions is represented so it's an excellent opportunity to meet new friends from diverse array of backgrounds. Auditions for new members wishing to perform may take place at any time so long as there are two or more members of the committee present.
A few weeks before the Audition day, librettos and musical scores will be made available to all paid-up members of the society. Details of the Audition songs and script are displayed along with brief characterizations for each role on offer. Rehearsal time is given to everyone equally so that they may practice the musical numbers with our resident accompanist before the Audition day.
The Costs Involved
The annual Membership Fee is £120 per year for adults (£60 for 65 and over, 14-16 year olds and students with a valid ID) and includes the majority of your costumes, however please note that while we aim to supply all costumes whenever possible, you may on occasions be asked to supply items of costume/props and accessories.
All members are expected to provide their own appropriate rehearsal gear - comfy clothes, appropriate dance shoes etc.
We would prefer you to pay the membership fee annually but we understand that this is not always possible and so we offer payment by 12 monthly installments (by standing order).
Please note that before you are allowed to audition for a part in a show, a £5 deposit is required from non-members (this is deductable from the full membership fee, should you decide to join the society).
Rehearsal Dates and Venue
We always rehearse in Room 1, The Lights, Andover, Hants.
Details for The Lights
Rehearsals can be very intensive, spanning a 4-5 month time period and you are asked to attend all relevant sessions. The usual rehearsal days are Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 7:30 – 10:00 pm depending on your role, occasionally more commitment is required from Principal Performers. We will normally expect to have 1 or 2 Sunday rehearsals during the rehearsal period.
