Join Us

Are you interested in joining KAOS?

New members of all voices and ages are always very welcome.  We have roles for those for those who are happy to go on stage, as well as those who prefer to work behind the scenes – costumes, make-up, sets and scenery, props, stage management, marketing, front of house etc.

There is an annual subscription fee of £40 for members and £10 for associate / junior members. This is good value because for your subscription you get:

  • the benefit of a highly experienced production/management team;
  • a professional musical director;
  • a regular rehearsal venue;
  • the opportunity to appear for a week in a fully staged and costumed musical at Theatre by the Lake, Cumbria’s premiere producing theatre; and
  • a charity concert programme that takes place towards the end of the year.

We are also strong believers in cultivating the social side, with BBQ’s (when the weather allows), social get-togethers and theatre trips both within Cumbria and regionally.

Regular weekly Society rehearsals are held on Thursday evenings from 7:30 – 9:30 pm from the beginning of September to mid-May at the St. Herbert’s Social Centre, High Hill, Keswick (at the junction of High Hill and Crosthwaite Road – CA12 5NY for those with satnavs).

IMG_3749We also hold smaller rehearsal sessions for principals and small groups on Monday evenings as required and some smaller singing group work starts from the beginning of January.  The number of rehearsals do, of course, increase the nearer we get to a show week.

The performance dates are usually in April / May for the spring show week, and late November / early December for the concerts.

If you are interested, come along for a “taster” session to one of our rehearsals, alternatively email our secretary on for further information.  You can be assured of a friendly welcome!
