It doesn’t matter whether the stage is your home-from-home or you’ve never been near a theatre before. We have lots of members who joined us with little or no experience, and they all enjoy getting involved and come back for more. Everyone has an equal chance to be cast; you don’t have to be a member for a certain time or ‘pay your dues’. If you don’t get cast you’ll be invited to help out with other aspects of the production such as costume co-ordinator, spot lights, choreography or back stage.
There are many off-stage roles to fill with each production – it’s a true team effort. In fact, if you don’t have an onstage role we still need your help. From costume to technical support, there are roles for everyone! Plus, if you would like to audition for a singing and acting role in the future, it’s a great way to build your confidence without the pressure of having a role immediately. You can attend rehearsals, learn about theatre craft and be involved when we’re at the theatre which is great experience.
We rehearse every Monday evening, from 7.30pm to 10.00pm at St Johns Church, Station Road, Grantham, (next to Maltings Dentist & aUK) plus one or two additional rehearsals on Thursday evenings and Sunday afternoons in the run up to a production.
We have a calendar of events which includes meals out, theatre trips, cabaret nights, and singing at local events. We also plan a Christmas Party every year for all members and friends of the society. You can get involved in planning these events too.

We recommend you come along to a few rehearsals to get to know the group before you sign up formally. We’re a very welcoming bunch and you’re sure to make some great new friends. Please like our Facebook page, ‘Harrowby Singers Amateur Musical Society’ to keep up to date.
All active members of the society are asked to pay a monthly membership fee of £5, or a one off annual payment of £60. As a member, fees go towards renting rehearsal space, insurance, theatre hire and equipment.
