Lyric Ensemble

The Lyric Ensemble is a talent development programme that puts actors aged 18-25 on to our professional stages.

Applications open 2 times a year to join the Lyric Ensemble as part of our:

1) annual pantomime (still to be recruited for Autumn 2021)
2) studio programme (already recruited for 2020/21)

As part of our ensemble you will gain skills through bootcamps and training sessions, and will have the opportunity to be part of a professional show.

Previous Lyric Ensemble productions have been delivered by leading directors Holly Race Roughan and Annie-Louise Sarks through which we produced The Mob Reformers written by Omar El-Khairy and Abandon scripted by Laura Lomas.

Due to COVID our 2020 ensemble will now be our 2021 ensemble. The Company will create a new, professional show with director Abigail Graham, writer Titas Halder and a professional design team. The ensemble members are: Siânnae Anderson, Rawaed Asde, Sofia Cala, Tierney Clark, Samuelle Durojaiye, Cloud Islay Gallagher, Felicity Ison, Sarah Lasoye, Obed Mayamona, Jacob Wayne O’Neill, Adrian David Paul, Gabriel Phelan, Kieton Saunders-Browne, Shayde Sinclair and Barbara Smith.

The Lyric Ensemble is generously supported by the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation, the McGrath Charitable Trust, The Idlewild Trust, The D’Oyly Carte Charitable Trust, and the Noël Coward Foundation.
