"Every aspect of this first...was a joy!"
Adult Company member

Want to try something new, sing as a collective and be creative? 

We offer opportunities for adults from all walks of life to create and perform together in projects and performances both at Wormsley and further afield. No audition is required for most of the projects, just an appetite to try something new, sing as a group and be creative. There are sometimes opportunities to play roles as actors in the main season productions as well as performing in your own right in the Adult Company at Wormsley on a regular basis. Commitment to the company is only required on a project by project basis and places are fully funded.

We are excited to announce our 2021 Adult Company production with be a new production by Orlando Gough, Weather the Storm. Find out more in the Opportunities tab.
