This week’s rehearsals

Hi everyone, hope you have had a great weekend just to remind you that Children will meet again tomorrow at 6pm, We are preparing for auditions and it will be a split session to explore the scene where Dodger and Oliver meet and then to practice your audition songs.

Seniors from 7:30pm is especially for those wishing to practice audition songs in preparation for Monday 19th Audition day, you will also be able to book your audition time as well.

Thursday’s session will be for Senior members only to practice their audition monologues.

See you tomorrow

Best wishes Sam

Rehearsals start up for Oliver!

Apologies for the late notice here, but if you follow us on our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/OswestryMusicals) you should have seen this!

Rehearsals for Oliver have started! We’ve had a music rehearsal so far just to go over what most of us already know, but anyone is still welcome to join us on Thursday the 8th (tomorrow!) at 7:30pm until about 10pm for a Commedia and Melodrama workshop, followed by audition preparation on Monday the 12th.

We’ll be in room C6, in the Wilfred Owen building. If you would like to come along, just turn up! Drop us an email at oliver@omtc.info beforehand if you’d like a friendly face to meet you.

Performances will be at the end of May (Weds 27th through Sat 30th).

Rehearsals for Sleeping Beauty

Rehearsals are starting on Monday the 2nd of June (7.30-10.00pm in room C6 at The Marches School) for our next production – Sleeping beauty. This will be performed in early December 2014 (I think it’s the weekend of the 5th, 6th and 7th of December but I don’t have my notes handy). If you’re interested in taking part – whether young, old, a singer, an actor, if you’ve never been on stage, if you’ve been on stage since you were 4! We welcome anyone (but especially younger men!) – check the event on our Facebook page for details!

If you don’t fancy being on stage but can spare some time to help out with more practical things, we always need help before the show with designing, making, painting, setting up, tearing down, and moving things around. If you or anyone you know can do any of that before or during the show, let us know here or email info@omtc.info!

If you’re good with people, please consider helping our front of house team on the performance nights. Helping customers, working on the bar, selling tickets, programs, raffle tickets & generally being the face of the company. If you’re interested, let us know here or email info@omtc.info.

Back to the grind & audition news

Hi everyone. Happy new year to you all. Now that the season of festivities is over, it’s straight back to the grindstone for the company. Rehearsals started in anger last night, with the announcement that auditions will be held on the 17th January.

Audition pieces are available – contact Mark or come to rehearsals (Mondays & Thursdays, 7.30pm, the Marches School) if you need details!

Another show over – another show begins!

Aladdin is done, the stage has been struck and the magic lantern has been put back in the cave, the kids are coming down from the sugar high and the hearing of the cast & crew is slowly returning after experiencing the noise that the cubs made on Sunday afternoon.

Rehearsals are nearly done with for the year.  Note I say “nearly”! There are two GOLD(!) rehearsals scheduled before the end of the year – Monday the 10th (no juniors required) and Monday the 17th December (whole company), with the final rehearsal involving some carol singing and an opportunity to drink some wine and socialise a bit after finishing at 9pm.

Songs from GOLD(!) will come from a huge variety of the shows that we’ve performed over the past 50 years, these include (though are not limited to):

  • No Business Like Show Business

  • Blow Gabriel Blow

  • Consider Yourself

  • Get Me To The Church on Time

  • June is Bustin’ out all Over

  • You’ll Never Walk Alone

  • Gonna Wash That Man Right Out Of My Hair

  • There is Nothing Like A Dame

  • Oklahoma!

  • The Lambeth Walk

  • One Day More
