Anyone can come along and get involved with us because each show is cast completely from scratch by OPEN AUDITION.  We’ve done it like that for almost 25 years.

We allocate 12 to 14 rehearsals to each show which are normally at weekends.

We are delighted to announce that our July Production is to be the World Premiere of the brand new musical SWASH.

“The Essex Group bring musicals to life with an astounding array of young people that you just can’t help sitting there wondering if these are the actors of the future and then one such person arrives on stage at the Barbican playing Henry V with The Royal Shakespeare Company! Break a leg Alex Hassel who appeared with The Essex Group from boy to man”
