Join the Choir

Nottingham Playhouse Choir explores a whole range of music responding to our artistic programme. There are no auditions and no requirement to be able to read sheet music – just a willingness to take part and sing!

Most recently, the choir have worked on songs from Wicked, Les Miserables, Carousel and Rent as well as seasonal songs and even special arrangements of some well known pop songs.


A message from Helen:

I love all kinds of music and believe in really diverse repertoire.  I plan to cover all kinds of genres including: musical theatre, classical and perhaps a bit of pop thrown in too. The main aim is to have fun whilst singing but I also believe that we can still strive for great music making, instilling some basic vocal technique, as well as everyone understanding the importance of having a ‘solid foundation’ when singing. Concerts will hopefully give us the opportunity to put this all into practice.

It’s important to note that anyone is welcome to join, regardless of ability.
