  • What’s it like in Cast? Is it like a school play?
    We asked our Cast what they like about Showtime. They said: “The people. They are so nice, so friendly, I have so many new friends. Showtime is so welcoming.” “You learn stuff. Not just singing, dancing, acting. I’m better organised now. I don’t get stressed when things go wrong. That’s just life.” “The things you learn help at school, in life, even in your career.” “It’s so not like school. Young people write the show, direct the show, make the show. We lead the show, even make the rules.” “Our rehearsals are fun. We also play games.” “The show is the best fun ever, the best two weeks of the year.”

  • What’s the audition and will I get selected for the cast?
    If you sign up, you're in! Congratulations. Everyone is accepted into our cast. The audition is just a chance for us to get to know you, and for you to get to know us! Be prepared for friendly people. On the day, we'll act out a sketch, dance some steps and sing a song. We know it might be scary, and we aim to make it as fun as possible.
  • How can I join the Band?
    Each year, we have a live band onstage. Being able to play in the band really depends on what instrument you play and how much experience you have. We would love everyone to play in the band, but in reality, there are only so many of each instrument we can have. If you would like to play in the band full time, please email director@camberwellshowtime.com and let us know what you play and how long you have been playing. Generally this is reserved for older Venturers and Rovers. If you're interested in playing in just one or two songs, and adding to your cast experience, that would be great. Please apply for cast and then indicate in the question response that you have interest in cast and band and we'll get back to you about a band audition. Note: you still need to book your cast audition.
