Please Note – these times are approximate and based on projected numbers of people taking part in each section. As such they are subject to change on the day. If you are arriving for a scheduled audition, we advise that you aim to be at the Theatre at least 15 minutes before the start time of that section.
At this stage, there is no requirement for those wishing to be involved in chorus only to complete an audition (unless you are new to the Society, in which case you will need to do a Society Audition on 2nd June)
We are holding an extra dance workshop to learn and practice the audition routines this Sunday 26th May from 12.30-1.30pm at the Naval Club (Coulson Road, Lincoln, LN6 7BG). This has been arranged for those auditioning for the specialist dance group, Kathy, Don and Cosmo.
There will potentially be a call-back session for candidates auditioning for the four principal roles on Tuesday 4th June – 7.30-9.30pm. More information will be available about this at the conclusion of the auditions on the 2nd.

After prolonged negotiations between ourselves and the American rights holders, Theatrical Rights Worldwide, we are very pleased to announce that as of September 2013, rehearsals will begin for Grease the Musical.
We are also extremely delighted to inform you that this Production will be a joint collaboration between Next Stage Productions and CAODS.
The Production will take place between 4th – 12th April 2014 at Lincoln Theatre Royal.
Thanks to Ian Dickens of the Lincoln Theatre Royal, Auditions will take place at the Theatre in September 2013 – audition date to be confirmed.
To perform in this production, a nominal participation fee of £25 will be required after successfully auditioning.
The Amateur performing rights for the full version of Grease the Musical have not been released for at least 20 years. The production will boast full live orchestration, a large set and authentic costumes. Grease the Musical is certain to be very popular with the general public and played to packed houses.
For further information in the very near future regarding auditions details etc please watch this space!
This is a fine time to be a member of CAODS. We have just had an amazing year! Back in June 2012, “Our Essential Musicals” was held as a one day tester project at the Theatre Royal. This was the first step in developing our new working relationship with everyone at the Theatre. It was incredibly well received and a joy to be involved in. Add to this, the fact that we have just concluded an incredibly successful run of “The Sound of Music”, which has received such high critical acclaim.
Obviously, we are very keen to continue to build on this momentum, our main production for 2013 will be “Singin’ In The Rain” (28 October – 09 November). This is a very exciting prospect indeed, though we realise it will involve a lot of hard work on the part of cast, crew and production team to make it successful. However, we have no doubt that between us we will create another fantastic show.
As well as the main production, Ian would again like us to produce a summer variety show. As “Our Essential Musicals” was such a success, this time he has given us a three night slot!
The show for 2013 will be entitled
“Step Into Hollywood ”
and will be held at Lincoln Theatre Royal on Saturday 6th & Sunday 7th July (2.30pm & 7.30pm, and Sunday matinee at 4.00pm).
Friday 5th July has been allocated for Dress/Tech rehearsals.
We really hope that many of you will want to be involved in this production, as it promises to be a lot of fun, and gives many more individuals their opportunity to shine (which is not always possible in big shows with limited cast requirements).
Auditions for this show will be held on Sunday 20th January 2013 10.00am – 2.00pm at St. John’s Hall, Lincoln
Current members do not need to audition for chorus involvement in this show, however for the purpose of planning we would appreciate it if you could let us know as soon as possible if you would like to be part of the company.
If you have any questions regarding auditioning, do not hesitate to contact the director – Heather Arnold.
