Show Choir - not just a choir, a Theatrical Experience!!
Just 3 and a half years ago, former professional opera singer, Angela Mackenzie had a dream to start a choir giving everyone, no matter what their previous experience the opportunity to come along, sing fabulous show songs and have a lot of fun! After an amazing launch night in Banstead, when an incredible 75 people queued out of the door to come and sing, Show Choir was born! Just twelve weeks later, Show Choir performed for the first time in their own Christmas Show at The Adrian Mann Theatre, Epsom, raising over £1000 for Motor Neurone Disease! As well as Banstead Show Choir, there are now 4 Choirs in the Show Choir family, Dorking, Cobham and West Byfleet! We’ve racked up over 50 performances including performing on The Royal Castle Stage in Disneyland Paris, our own Christmas Shows at Dorking Halls, Music in Nork Park, as well as Les Mis Workshops with a West End Pro!
We really enjoyed backing Tenors Un Limited at Epsom Playhouse as part of their US/UK tour in May, and we were thrilled to sing with the fabulous Beyond the Barricade! We have even sung for Robbie Williams at the Loose Women Studios! We are very excited about performing at the Edinburgh Fringe in August!
In addition to all that, Show Choir have helped raise thousands for local charities!
Come along and join us, your first session is free, we're a friendly bunch, and rehearsals are always fun!
Show Choir offers its members the opportunity to see West End shows with coach travel there and back. Our first trip was to see ‘White Christmas’ at The Dominion Theatre in November – We had a magical night out with Champagne and chocolates on the coach as a little extra surprise. Since then we've seen Les Mis, Phantom, Gypsy and 42n Street - such fun!
Since then, we have seen 'Les Miserables', the fabulous 'Gypsy' with Imelda Staunton, and the haunting 'Phantom of the Opera' !
