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!

Happy Birthday to AODS

Having had a very quiet 2020 through the interference of the Covid-19 pandemic, we are able to announce our plans for 2021.  We have missed seeing all of our friends and look forward to gathering again, even if socially distanced.
We are celebrating our centenary in 2021 and to give a kick start to the year, we are holding read throughs and auditions in January (see poster) for our dramatic production that will take to the stage in May.  This production is “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” by William Shakespeare and there are many roles in which you can revel in the glorious language that Shakespeare uses throughout.  If you are interested in joining in please contact us.
We will be making further announcements throughout the next few months so please keep checking in at the website, on Facebook and on Twitter.

There’s probably a role for you in the AODS crew!
