Welcome to the AODS website. Have a look through this site to find out what we are all about, our next production and productions we have put on in the past.

Founded in 1921, Alton Operatic and Dramatic Society (AODS) has grown to become a two-shows-a-year society which still supports causes in the local community as well as providing first class entertainment for the people of Alton, and a hectic social life for its members.

The very latest news about what is happening in the society can be found on our Twitter feed or Facebook page. If you are a society member you can also join the conversation about AODS on our Facebook group!

We are always looking for new members, so if you like what you see on this website, please contact us about becoming a member!

Spring Musical 2019 – Iolanthe

The first rehearsal for our 2019 musical, Iolanthe, will take place this Thursday, 15th November, 7.45pm at Alton Assembly Rooms.

Iolanthe is one of the more timeless G&S musicals, and we’re bringing the story into the 21st century.

This first rehearsal will be an introduction to the show, including the modern twists, and a chance to sing through the music.

If you can’t make the 15th, please come and join us on the 22nd as the work begins!

The audition dates are currently being finalised and are expected to be early December – more details will follow as soon as this is confirmed, and the audition pieces will be made available on the website and at rehearsals.
