ELOC Rehearsal Times and Venues

ELOC rehearses weekly, on Mondays (usually excluding bank holidays), Wednesdays and closer to the show on Sundays too.

Monday rehearsals are for the company (chorus and principals).

Wednesdays rehearsals are mainly for principals, and sometimes dancers/ensemble. Please refer to the rehearsal schedule to check if you are called.

Sunday rehearsals are for the company, and start about a month before show-week.

ELOC will issue a detailed rehearsal schedule once the show is cast. Please make sure you check the schedule regularly for updates and changes. It is also important to let the production team know of any planned absences, so they can plan the rehearsal schedule accordingly.

Monday and Wednesday rehearsals start at 7.50pm for a 8.00pm sharp start.

Sunday rehearsals are planned for the following dates and times:
