Singers Wanted

Would you like to sing with the FAMS Chorus for a production in July?

The Beggar’s Opera

This season, the FAMS Theatre Company is mounting a colourful production of The Beggar’s Opera by John Gay.  This parody of Italian opera that was all the rage in London society is a rousing portrait of the rich but seamy side of life in eighteenth century London.  Gay illuminates his comedy satire with folk tunes of the day.  Our talented Director and Musical Director have edited and modernised the original work to entertain today’s audiences.


We are looking for chorus singers who are prepared to be a range of characters, including pick-pockets, ruffians, policemen, ladies of easy virtue, bent magistrates, pimps, and pervs.  NO audition is necessary!


Rehearsals are held on Saturdays from 1:00PM at St Stephen’s Hall, 16 Lockwood Avenue, Frenchs Forest.  There will also be production rehearsals in the evening during the last week of June.


There will be eight performances in total:
  • Seven over the first two weekends of July (at the War Veteran’s Theatre [Montgomery Theatre], Collaroy)
  • One performance on 17 July (at Anita’s Theatre, Thirroul, near Wollongong).
Please call Christine on (9818 8829 or (0408 298 188 for more information.

Male and female chorus needed I usually drive up for sat arvo practice leaving pt at 12 if anyone is interested they could hook in with me for a lift.
