Farewell to Edinburgh

And so the curtain falls on a wonderful Edinburgh experience with The Drowsy Chaperone. Huge thanks to everyone who came to see us, helped us along the way and supported us from afar. We couldn't have done it without you.

We had an amazing Fringe Festival experience - from flyering and performing on the Royal Mile, to the standing ovations we received at the performances. We loved it all; and hopefully it'll be something we'll be able to repeat in the not too distant future!

In the meantime, it's back to the real world of day jobs... and, of course, our next show, Parade!

Avenue Q NODA review

Hands up who likes reading lovely show reviews? Well, we certainly do! And fortunately, the NODA review for our latest production, Avenue Q, doesn’t disappoint! 

Steve Macvicar, our NODA rep, made some lovely comments about the show, including: 

“I was blown away by the genuine quality”

“I also sensed a feelgood factor around the production which emanates from an upbeat show with killer performances, which this show had in abundance.”

And, of our director, “Katy Goddard moulded the action superbly.”

Take a look at the full write up here.

Box office open for Parade

The wait is over! The box office is now open for our production of Jason Robert Brown's brilliant musical, PARADE, which takes place from Wednesday 1st to Saturday 4th October at Putney Arts Theatre (Ravenna Road, Putney).

Parade is the tragic, true story of the trial and lynching of a man accused of murder, and includes haunting and beautiful songs performed by a talented Cygnet cast.

Performances are nightly at 7.45pm, with a 2.30pm Saturday matinee. Tickets are £16 (£13 concessions) and can be bought either online, or via the Cygnet Players box office on 07941 448 689.

So book now to reserve your place, and transport yourself back to 1913 Georgia and make your own mind up: guilty, or not guilty?

Legally Blonde: the SW London premiere

Omigod, omigod you guys… we have the most amazing news for you! Cygnet Players are hugely excited to announce that we’ll be performing the SOUTH WEST LONDON AMATEUR PREMIERE of the Broadway and West End smash hit musical, LEGALLY BLONDE, at the Putney Arts Theatre in September 2016

After a successful stint on Broadway, three years in the West End, and a national tour, plus an armful of awards, Legally Blonde is hitting Putney! 

And we’re probably as shocked as anyone about getting the rights to this great show – because at first it looked like we weren’t going to. But what a great surprise – and what a fantastic show! 

Elle Woods can handle anything. So when her boyfriend, Warner, dumps her, she decides to follow him to Harvard Law School and win him back. With some help from newfound friends Paulette, Emmett and her chihuahua Bruiser, she learns that it’s so much better to be smart. 

This all-singing, all-dancing romantic comedy is about knowing who you are, and showing what you’ve got – and we can’t wait to bring it to a stage near you! 

Announcing our new partner

We are delighted to announce that we have secured a show sponsor for our next four shows - letyano Ltd.

letyano have developed a new app for smart phones that allows users to give instant feedback on a service or product they've experienced, in return for a reward. The company is targeting SW London and they see Cygnet Players as a great way to spread the word about their service and encourage people to download and use the app.

In return, we've negotiated a good sponsorship deal and we'll also be set up as a client on the app. This will allow our audiences to fill out a quick questionnaire and give us feedback on the show they're seeing that night. It should give us valuable information on who our audiences are and what they think about the quality of our shows - which will of course help us to make our future shows even better.

This deal will give Cygnets added financial security and, together with our company sponsor, ABC Selfstore, puts the company in a strong position going forward.

We would love it if you could spend a few minutes to download the app now and see what rewards are available for you in your local area. The app is free and typically clients include local bars, coffee shops and restaurants. As the business grows, more and more rewards will become available.

You'll be seeing the letyano logo on all our publicity going forward, so look out for it, and please spread the word to any friends and colleagues who might also be interested.

Show Reviews

"The whole production was slick, well performed and of a very high standard."

"It was a fantastic show, I want to book another ticket and come see it to laugh all over again!"

Steve Rikard
Sardines Magazine Review

"Your audience were in stitches regularly and this is not just because of the quality of the material but because of the quality of the delivery."

"Congratulations to Ian Ward for directing such a tight production."

Stephen Macvicar 
NODA Review

"The cast were very strong and executed well both script and score with much skill and aplomb."

"It is difficult to get the balance right with this show between the drama and the comedy/pantomime and I thought you achieved the balance pretty much perfectly."

Stephen Macvicar 
NODA

'I have to say at this point that this production is one of the best non-professional I have ever seen! Finding fault was very nigh on impossible as the cast were of a very high standard and to give nothing away, provided us with a lead performance that was pure excellence.'
