Leigh Operatic & Dramatic Society (LODS)

Twitter  

Leigh-on-Sea

The Society was formed in 1915 as a result of a concert party organised during the First World War, and was originally known as the West Leigh Operatic & Dramatic Society.
The Society expanded and in 1917 became known as the Leigh Operatic & Dramatic Society. Within two years the Society’s success and increased membership made it necessary to move from the original Clarke’s College in London Road to more commodious premises at Elm Hall.
In 1922, after many sleepless nights and committee meetings, LODS decided to take the ambitious move to the Ambassador’s Theatre in Tylers Avenue, opening with Gilbert & Sullivan’s 'The Gondoliers'.
In 1932 a move to the first-class facilities at the Southend Hippodrome led to the production of 'The New Moon' in 1934. That magnificent show was generally acknowledged as the finest amateur production ever given in the town and created a sensation upon its initial performance. The advent of the 'talkies' necessitated a move to the New Palace Theatre, then back to the Ambassador\’s in 1936, but returning again to the Palace in 1938. Over the Second World War the Society had to scale down its productions but continued on by regularly giving first-rate revue type entertainment to the troops around the county.
The first post-war production was 'Wild Violets' at the Palace in 1946. Ours is a record of which we feel justly proud. We have presented shows ranging from grand opera to the avant-garde (including three world amateur premieres) as well as countless entertainments for charitable organisations.
Today LODS continues this tradition, always ready to take a risk in order to offer something new, something exciting, but above all something entertaining.

Leigh on Sea

Based near Southend on Sea in Essex, Leigh Orpheus is a friendly choir aiming to bring the joy of singing as a performer to men in the area. We also aim to bring the joy of listening to as many people as possible. We perform concerts locally and further afield and each year go on tour, sometimes in the UK and sometimes abroad. The choir has enjoyed successful concerts at the Cliffs Pavilion with Alfie Boe, Lee Mead, The Kings' Singers and most recently in January 2016 when we performed with three other male voice choirs. Many of our performances are fund-raisers for mainly local charities.
If you are interested in singing with us by all means come along and see if you like what you hear and would consider joining us – there is no obligation. We rehearse on Friday evenings from 7:30 at the Salvation Army Temple, London Rd, Hadleigh. Or come and see us in concert. Dates are on our website.

Little Theatre Company

Twitter  

Westcliff

The Company was formed in 1948 by a dozen or so enthusiasts, most of whom had some experience on the amateur stage, and was originally called The Little Theatre Club.
The original intention was to present shows in a modest way for charities, but within a few months it was learned that, owing to a cancelled booking, it was possible to hire the Palace Theatre, Westcliff, for a week. And so, in December 1949 the first LTC production was staged 'No No Nanette'. Since then, the company has presented 107 musicals and 33 plays. We have records of over 1000 members, many of whom have gone on to pursue a professional career in theatre and entertainment: these include our Patron, Gemma Craven, Mark Cotgrove (aka Snowboy) and Lee Mead. Always keen to try new things over the years, we have presented 3 UK amateur premieres plus numerous regional ones, and in the process we have won 12 NODA awards.
We’re always looking for new members. So whether your forte lies on stage, backstage or even making costumes, there surely isn’t a better way to make so many friends and most of all have fun!
If you would like to be part of the Little Theatre Company, please contact our membership secretary membership@littletheatrecompany.co.uk

Lopping Hall, Loughton

LADS was formed was formed on 6th January 1924. It's founders wished to establish a "village society" with the aim of presenting plays with 'genuine dramatic worth'. Eighty-five years later, the LADS are still going strong. Loughton can no longer truly be described as a 'village' but one thing has remained constant - that original aspiration of 'genuine dramatic worth'. LADS has about 60 members of all ages. We perform and rehearse at Lopping Hall, conveniently situated in Loughton High Road, just a few minutes walk from Loughton tube station. We produce four plays a year, ranging from classics by Shakespeare, Shaw and Arthur Miller through favourites such as When We are Married, Rebecca and Hobson\’s Choice to the latest contemporary drama. The LADS are proud of our reputation for presenting plays fresh onto the amateur circuit and so we always keep an eye on potential new releases. We were one of the first amateur companies to produce The Madness of George III, Steel Magnolias, Les Liaisons Dangereuses, Amy\’s View and Proof .Why not join LADS? We're always pleased to welcome new people. Or perhaps you'd just like to come along to one of our events.

Harlow

We are an entirely voluntary, not-for-profit drama club with a splendid history, a tradition of innovation, and we welcome anyone willing to perform, assist with staging and technical, or front of house. Most of us do a bit of everything.
We are part of the Mark Hall & Netteswell Community Association and have been since around 1953. Our permanent base has everything we need - we get the seating rake, scenery and lights out one week-end and pack it all away on the following Saturday night. In between we act, and go for a curry. There might possibly be a drop of wine about after we strike the show. There is a decent bar as well. The Social Club is easy (and cheap) to join.
Our space is superbly flexible. We can work on stage or in the round or on the floor. Audience can be high or low or sitting at table. We can put scenery everywhere or nowhere.
We have total artistic independence - and we use it. New plays, interesting plays, new translations all feature. Our contacts lead us to wander abroad - as far as NSW, Bohemia and the Alps over the past 15 years.
If you like the concept - come to a show, or better still come and introduce yourself at one of our social nights, held the first Wednesday of every month at Moot House Social Club.
Box Office (01279) 639170
New members are always welcome - as performers, backstage crew, front of house, technicians or general helpers.
