The Geoids Musical Theatre committee is delighted to announce the highlights of our 2016 season.
17 January 2016
A perennial favourite, we’ll return to LOST Theatre with the exercise in cramming that is the 48-Hour Panto.
We’ll bring a full length pantomime, complete with songs and dances, from page to stage within just one weekend.
Auditions will be held at 6pm on Friday 15 January with rehearsals beginning immediately afterwards!
26-30 April 2016
We’re taking a change of pace and style with this ground-breaking 1960s show.
Hair arguably defined the rock musical genre. It has amazing musical numbers (including “Hair”, “Let the Sunshine In” and “Aquarius”) and a strong, poignant message that reflects the political upheaval of the time.
25-29 October 2016
It’s had an acclaimed revival on Broadway and now it’s coming to London!
On the Twentieth Century is a screwball comedy with book and lyrics by the team behind Singin’ in the Rain and music by Cy Coleman, who brought us Sweet Charity and City of Angels.
Set on a luxury train in the 1920s, it focuses on egomaniacal theatre producer Oscar Jaffee and his volatile personal and professional relationship with the arrogant film actress Lily Garland.
On the Twentieth Century is a show with a big sound, farcical comedy, and classic choreography.

We’ll be holding an audition workshop at St Gabriel’s Hall, Pimlico at 7pm on Wednesday 24 June for our upcoming production of Sunset Boulevard. The show will be performed from 6 to 10 October at the Bridewell Theatre, London.
The purpose of this workshop is to allow potential auditionees to meet the production team and become more familiar with both the show and the audition process. We will also go through the dance and musical numbers that will be used in the initial audition round.
Attendance is not required at the workshop in order to audition. Materials shared at the workshop will also be available on request for those who cannot attend.

With no further ado, and as the last big decision of the outgoing committee, Geoids Musical Theatre are excited to announce our autumn production Sunset Boulevard, which will play at the Bridewell Theatre, 6-10 October.
Sunset Boulevard weaves a magnificent tale of faded glory and unfulfilled ambition. Silent movie star Norma Desmond longs for a return to the big screen, having been discarded by tinsel town with the advent of “talkies”. Her glamour has faded in all but her mind. When she meets struggling Hollywood screenwriter Joe Gillis in dramatic circumstances, their subsequent passionate and volatile relationship leads to a tragic conclusion.
The lush score features such haunting classics as “With One Look”, “The Greatest Star of All”,
“As if We Never Said Goodbye”, “The Perfect Year”, and the emotionally charged title song “Sunset Boulevard”.
We have secured a talented production team who are very excited to get started:
- Director – Dom O’Hanlon
- Musical Director – Sarah Burrell
- Choreographer – Honor Roche
- Technical Director – Adrian Jeakins
- Set Design – John Winters
- Producer – Blake Klein
- Repetiteur – Lizzy Rosser
