Becoming a G&SMCS member & other fees:
Membership of the Society is open to all who are interested in musical theatre. There is no entry audition for membership but there are auditions for each show that we stage. Once you are a paid-up member, you are invited to audition for any production that interests you.
  • The annual membership subscription is £40 for adults and £10 for juniors (under 17's). Subscriptions are due on 1st July each year.

  • If you are cast in a show there is a further performance fee of £20 for adults and £10 for juniors (under 17's).

Our auditions are also open to Non-Members, however, Non-Members must either pay an 'Audition Fee' or become a paid-up Member ahead of any Audition. More details will be provided during our Show Workshops and Auditions.  

Membership subscriptions, Non-Member 'Audition Fees' and Performance Fees are necessary as the costs of staging our shows are high and much time and effort of the Society members goes into additional fund raising.

But there's more to being a member than performing on stage. You will be joining a lively and welcoming group of people who share a common interest - putting on great entertaining musicals. Apart from our rehearsals, we have a programme of social activities - theatre trips, after-show parties, lunches, etc., even our fund raising efforts are social events! And if you are not cast in a show, there are lots of ways to get involved, either back stage or front-of-house.
