About Pantheon Club Glasgow
Is not in mortals to command success, but we’ll do more: deserve it!
This motto was printed in the program of Pantheon’s first production, The Quaker Girl, at the Theatre Royal, Glasgow on Monday 14th February 1927.
Born in a Glasgow coffee house in 1926, The Pantheon Club was established by 5 young men to embrace and promote the arts of theatre, singing and drama. Now, some 90 years later, the Pantheon Club is still ‘deserving success’, having performed over 200 musicals, plays and pantomimes.
The Pantheon Club (Glasgow) Ltd is a non-profit making charitable organisation (Scottish Registered Charity SC002818) with a Club membership of over 100, and regular auditions for new talent, The Pantheon Club Glasgow will continue to be a prominent feature on the Glasgow stage for many years to come.
The Pantheon Club has seen many of its performers go on to professional careers over the years, including the fabulous Rikki Fulton and Molly Weir, and of recent times Sabrina Carter ('Wicked' and 'Oliver' on London's West End) and Andrew Keay in War Horse.

Pantheon depends on its members to produce high quality drama and musicals. We are always looking for fresh talent, off-stage and on, and we welcome new members throughout the year.
The Club is open to members aged 16 and over.
Membership of the Club is by audition for performing members, or by interview for backstage members.
Fees for membership are currently:
£50 per annum (full membership)
£40 per annum (student/registered unemployed)
£25 per annum (backstage)
There is also a one-off joining fee of £10 which is applicable if you are successful in your audition.
Please note that casting of all productions is by competitive audition. Membership of the Pantheon Club does not, per se, guarantee the right to appear in any production.
For the audition, we ask you to prepare a song to sing, and to bring sheet music of the accompaniment with you. There will be a pianist at auditions, who will be happy to play over the song with you before you sing for the panel.
We also ask that you prepare a speech of approximately 2 minutes to perform. You are not required to learn the speech by heart, but it is probably best if you choose a speech you are very familiar with, and which you are comfortable performing. There are books of audition speeches available in the drama section of most of the larger book stores. If you need someone to read opposite you in a dialogue, one of the panel will be happy to oblige.
The auditions are held before a panel of Club members (usually at least one member of the Board of Directors, and two ordinary members of the Club). The audition panel is different every time, to ensure fairness.
Successful applicants will be invited to become members of the Pantheon Club, and will then be eligible to take part in pre-audition rehearsals for forthcoming productions.
