We're looking for new members to join us for our production of Gilbert and Sullivan's Yeomen of the Guard in November.
The first rehearsal is in the back room at Betchworth Memorial Hall, 7.45pm on Tuesday 2nd June, and will be an informal read-through followed by drinks/nibbles. There will be two further rehearsals before the auditions for principals on 23rd June - note that the 16th June will be at Reigate Community Centre instead of the hall. Please contact the director Virginia King if you need more information, or if you're interested but can't make any of the above dates.
There are plenty of parts available
