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!
