We are recruiting keen singers/performers of all ages to be part of the community chorus for Theatre in the Quarter’s forthcoming production The Lost Boy. 


Theatre in the Quarter will stage an ambitious production that will focus on the changing face of our towns and cities; as people escape war-torn countries and try to find sanctuary here in the UK. The Lost Boy, (by Stephanie Dale with music by Matt Baker and directed by Kate McGregor) will be showcased in St Mary’s Creative Space in Chester in April ahead of a UK-wide tour in 2017 from Friday 21 April to Sunday 7 May including a mixture of evening and schools matinee performances. Four actors will perform with a community chorus of all ages.

The chorus will be playing the role of a community choir from a British seaside town who are preparing for a Christmas concert. There will be a mixture of traditional and newly composed music in 4-part harmony. There will also be some cameo spoken parts.


We are looking for people of all ages who are competent singers and performers.

We are looking for people who are able to commit to ALL rehearsals and production dates (for those who attend schools we will be going through the appropriate procedure to ensure you can make performances during school time).
