The Warren are a terrific group of people who've been performing pantomimes and musical shows since 1949. As you will see all our profits are donated to charity – mostly local charities.
Look around our website and you can find out lots more about our history and the charities we have supported over the years.
We're always looking for new talent to join us – singers, actors, dancers, musicians or back stage (scenery, costumes etc).
We perform a pantomime every January and an original musical show every May – we perform our pantomimes and shows at the Wyllyotts Theatre in Potters Bar.We rehearse at Lyonsdown Hall in East Barnet from 8-10pm every Tuesday from early September-January for our pantomime – and from January-May for our musical show. There are also a few Sunday rehearsals.
Members are expected to be at rehearsals every Tuesday and Sundays when required. For show weeks members must be available every evening for rehearsals/performances and arrive no later than one hour prior to performance times. Panto week runs Monday-Sunday with rehearsals from 19.00-22.30 Monday-Wednesday, evening performances at 19.30 Thursday-Saturday and matinee performances on Saturday at 2.30 and Sunday at 11.00 and 15:00. Show week is the same but at 19.45 and without the Sunday performances.
Members are encouraged to do all they can to promote and sell tickets to their friends and family.
You will be provided with scripts by email. Costumes and make up are provided for you as required.
Joining The Warren is not just about being onstage. We regularly cater at boot sales, hold quiz nights, car rallies and other social events. As members we would expect you to spare some time to get involved in these projects.
Our annual subscription fee is £40 for adults and £20 for under-18s. New members must be aged 13 or over.
