Sister Act – call for cast

Reading Operatic is in the final stages of preparation for Children of Eden but we’re now already looking forward to our production of Sister Act.

Rehearsals commence on  25 April with auditions on 8 May.

The production team is Jennifer Scott, Gemma Hough and Neil Matthews.

It will be an open audition process and we’ll be looking for a particularly vivacious Delores, as well as looking for females of a wide age range among the roles.

Watch this space for more details or get in touch via our Contact page to let us know of your interest.

Dear Reading Operatic,

I saw this show performed by SWMTC a while ago, also directed by Neil Mathews, and thought it was fabulous and would love to be a part of this one. Can you please let me have some more details about it?

I have only just realised that you have been previewing this and cannot come to the Thursday night preview. What time are the auditions on Sunday? Is there a specific time if you are only interested in chorus?

Many thanks and looking forward to hearing more details.
