Who can join?
We accept members from age of 16 upwards. We’re looking for people who can sing, dance and act. New members may be asked to audition to become a company member.
When do you rehearse?
For both the musical and pantomime our usual rehearsals are on Tuesday evenings in the Dobbie Hall, Larbert, from 7.30 to 10pm. Principals also rehearse on a Thursday evenings and some Sunday afternoons. Nearer show time we also rehearse on a Sunday afternoon from 2 to 5pm. Your attendance at each rehearsal is very important. We expect members to attend all scheduled rehearsals.
We rehearse from January to mid-May for the musical and from mid-August to end of November for the panto.
How much does it cost?
You’ll be asked to pay an annual fee to join as a company member. Currently these are £60 for adults and £40 for under-16s, unemployed and seniors. Our year runs from 1st June to 31st May so your fee includes getting to do a panto and a show.
For some productions you may be asked to supply part of, or all your costumes. We’ll give you as much notice as possible about any costumes or parts of costumes you need for either the panto or the show. You need to have your own shoes and make-up for each production.
What else do I need to know?
We’re a fun company who love to socialise together as well as rehearsing. We normally have a couple of fund raising nights throughout the year such as musical bingo or a race night.
I want to be part of LAOS!
