Now that The Maddermarket is up and running, we are now going ahead with our plans for the next show in May 2022 at the theatre. After such a long break we felt that a more popular upbeat production is needed and so we decided that The Pirates of Penzance was more in keeping with our requirements. This will take place from Wednesday 4 May until Saturday 7 May 2022 and if you are in the Norfolk (UK) area and would like to be part of this production, please get in touch.
The Stage Director will be Keith Swetman who, in between principal roles, last directed The Sorcerer in 2015.
The Musical Director will be Susie Self. Susie is an experienced professional singer, having understudied major roles for the Royal Opera House Covent Garden, Glyndebourne and Opera North. In 2002 she sang Katisha in The Mikado for a season at The Savoy Theatre with the D’Oyly Carte Co. Susie has since turned to composition and has had works commissioned from all over the world, as well as being an experienced conductor, studying under David Parry.
We are thrilled to have enlisted this wealth of experience and musical knowledge. Susie is a huge G & S fan and says that she is “really excited” to be the MD for ‘Pirates’.

Principal audition applications are now closed, but we would love you to join our fantastic chorus, so why not come along to our rehearsals on Tuesdays at 7.30pm at Wroxham Church Hall.
Here’s a sneak peek of our first sing through! Not bad for the first run through!
Note: we want to keep everyone safe, so we are asking anybody who would like to join us to bring proof of double vaccination or a negative lateral flow test.
