An on-stage ensemble cast of 48 Singers share solo and chorus duties, and are supported by a team of swings.
This large chorus is cast from a wide variety of backgrounds from classical, musical theatre and pop. Singers have to learn and sing, uniformly, a range of styles from Choral to Show-tune, memorising a lengthy and complex score in a short space of time whilst they learn the choreography. They will also sing in smaller ensembles, duets, trios and solos or in our offstage sound booth.
During the first half of the show singers and instrumentalists are spread throughout the building and contact with the Conductor is via monitors. The second half of the show is more in concert format with the conductor at the head of the orchestra and the choir often in two blocks either side of the stage.
All our artistes are versatile and outgoing. They are wearing full costume and now the shows have started there are two a day, seven days a week. Given the frequency of performances, singers have to know their stamina and how to pace themselves accordingly, though they are scheduled one day off a week.
All cast members are living locally for the duration, usually in shared holiday accommodation. Subsistence is included in the fee to cover this. Travel is by car, and those without have to make arrangements with drivers in the cast. Payment is made in several instalments, each one of which must be invoiced for.
The job is hugely enjoyable - they are performing to ecstatically happy capacity audiences (over 1,400 seats), and staying in a beautiful part of the world, less than 15 minutes from the coast in North Norfolk.
We at Thursford are committed to having a diverse range of skills, experience and talent working with us both front and backstage, and as such we’re always keen for applicants from under-represented groups to apply; which include those from all ethnic backgrounds, lower socio-economic groups, the LGBTQ+ community and different backgrounds, to ensure we are truly representative of all.
