InSpired to Sing- Choir in A Day Workshop

Songs from Stage & Screen

Saturday 8th October 2022  10:00am - 4:30pm (Registration from 9:30am - please do not arrive before this time)

The Spire, High Street, Poole

Join P&P for our second ‘InSpired to Sing - Choir in a Day’ event! Spend the day singing as part of a massed choir as you workshop, and then perform, Songs from Stage & Screen, all in one day. 


You don’t need to be in a choir or a member of P&P to join us – just be keen to sing. No matter if you have lots of experience or none at all, the day will be suitable for all levels.


The workshop will be led by accomplished performers, musical directors and teachers Chris & Jane McDouall. Since moving to the area from their busy musical life in Nottingham, Jane has become Musical Director of the P&P Singers & founded our InSpire Choirs, whilst Chris has recently taken the baton as Musical Director of P&P’s Musical Theatre Society after playing in the band for our musicals for many years.

Established as Parkstone Vocal and Instrumental Society in 1919, P&P’s Musical Theatre Society has grown

to become one of the best known 

musical theatre companies in the

Bournemouth and Poole area.


They have performed a variety of shows from Oliver, to 42nd Street, Sweeney Todd, to Jesus Christ Superstar as well

as their famous Autumn Concerts & smaller cabaret performances

across the region.


The Players was set up in 2005 for members who enjoy performing (and audiences who enjoy watching)

straight plays.

The Players have had huge success with

 plays such as Rebecca, Steel Magnolias and A Bunch of Amateurs as well as our regular Summer Cocktails and Evening of One Act Plays, even performing a show penned by one of their own members; Changing Fortunes.


P&P’s resident choir The Singers was founded in 1998, originally for members of the Musicals section who wanted to sing but not to dance.

They have since become well-renowned for their precision, close harmonies and eclectic programmes.

Under the musical direction of Jane McDouall, The Singers perform at a variety of venues and events across Dorset.

"When it comes to song and dance spectaculars there is no-one to beat this company... The staging, costumes and performance
really were as good as it gets..."

— Linda Kirkman, Bournemouth Echo
