We are thrilled that our next Sing-through will be Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd-Webber’s iconic ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’! This Sing-through will be backed by an incredible 36-piece orchestra and cast completely gender-blind. Below is all of the information you will need before signing up, but if you have any other questions please contact us at jimi@acquire.org.uk. For a breakdown of roles please click here.

How Do I Sign Up?

If you would like to take part in the Sing-through, we are accepting applications via the form below.

The sign-up form will be live until 19:00 on August 18th. Applications will not be accepted after this date.

Once the sign up list is closed, the Acquire team will begin work on selecting our final chorus and orchestra for the weekend. Places are limited and will be offered taking into consideration experience and balance of parts. You will be contacted roughly one week after the closing date with offer of a place. This gives us time to make the required arrangements.

This is unlike a normal experience in that we will not be auditioning for the solo parts in advance and so request that you give us information about your previous experience to help us allocate the roles. It would be helpful to the Acquire team if you could be as concise and honest as possible when detailing your experience as this will aid the allocation process.

We want this to be a really positive and educational experience for all and we will do our best to distribute roles as fairly as possible. Roles will be blind cast and allocated by the Musical Director and the Sing-through team two weeks in advance. They will not be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis and neither will roles only be given to our established choir members. We ask that the team are not emailed in advance to request roles. Please register your interest in the Google Form below.

Cost for the Weekend

Due to licensing restrictions, in order for us to perform this particular version of Jesus Christ Superstar, as well as other associated expenses, the cost for the weekend is £30 for the two days of rehearsal. We will also be having a Social event on the Saturday night that you can choose to opt into upon offer of a place.

With regards to scores, anyone with a principal role will receive a physical copy.  For all others, a digital copy will be supplied which can be viewed on a desktop. If you would prefer a physical copy this can be requested. Scores can be collected on the 3rd September or postage can be arranged for an additional cost.

Payment information will be given once you have been offered a place.

Required Attendance

As singers, you will be required to be available for the following dates and times. We are excited to be working in a brand new venue this year after listening to feedback from our previous Sing-through. Both rehearsals will now take place in The Fotheringay Centre, 57 Fotheringay Rd, Glasgow, G41 4NN.

10am-6pm: Saturday 29th September
