ABOUT

Retford and District Amateur Operatic Society was formed nearly 100 years ago, in 1920, to provide an outlet for the areas' musical loving population. Since then, a minimum of one main show has been performed annually to the public, with shows ranging from Annie to The Wizard of Oz and pretty much every popular show in between.  This show is currently held at The Majestic Theatre in Retford.

 

We also perform an annual Pantomine in December, currently at Retford Little Theatre, with offerings such as Mother Goose,  Snow White and Ali Baba and the Forty Theives.

 

The high standard of our productions is reflected in the number of nominations and awards we have won over the years at the National Operatic and Dramatic Association (NODA) Annual Awards. Three of our more recent offerings, Peter Pan (2013) ,The Snow Queen (2014) and Cinderella (2016) have won Best Pantomime, and Carousel (2013) won Best Musical. Other NODA Nominations & Awards received over the years include Best Basic Programme (Carousel, 2013) & Best Youth Production for The Mini Operatic Bunch's four consecutive performances of Grease (2014), The King & I (2015), The Wizard of Oz (2016) and Hairspray (2017).

 

The current Society, with over 100 members between the adult and youth group and Synchro Singers, meets once or twice every week for rehearsals and we are always happy to receive new members either on the stage or behind the scenes (more details here).
