Redditch Operatic Society

Redditch

The Society was re-formed in 1959 and has staged at least one major musical production each year since then. In 2009/10 we celebrated our golden anniversary.
ROS is currently made up of over 90 acting and non-acting members, making it the largest (and we like to think, most professional) performing society in the area.
If you wish to join the Redditch Operatic Society, or would just like some more information about us, please contact our Chairman, Tony Jay.
We are especially keen to hear from anybody who would like to be involved behind the scenes in any way - from stage crew to props, make-up, costumes, lighting, sound and so on.
Or are you a budding producer or musical director keen to get involved in the amateur musical theatre scene in Redditch? If so, let us know!
And we're always looking for additional rehearsal pianists - a paid position. So if you can play the piano well, and are free on Tuesday and/or Thursday evenings, we'd certainly like to hear from you.

St John's Players Worcester

Facebook  Twitter

Worcester

Founded in 1949 in the St John’s area of Worcester, we have performed in diverse venues such as schools, church halls and theatres around Worcestershire with at least one play a year performed at the Swan Theatre, Worcester since its opening in the 1960s.
We always welcome new members. One great advantage of being small is that we are very much a team who all tackle every job – you could be directing one play, acting in another, or even “chief tea-maker” in the next.
We present our autumn production on the Swan Theatre Main Stage, with a spring production usually taking place in the recently-regenerated Swan Theatre Studio, a more intimate venue which gives us the opportunity to select a wider range of plays to suit different audiences.
Recent acclaimed productions have included Allo Allo, Bedroom Farce, Up Pompeii and One For the Road.
We have a lot of fun, but because we perform in a professional theatre we aim to perform to the highest standards.
We have a regular Club Night on Tuesdays. Cast rehearsals take place Tuesday and Thursday evenings. We have for many years been based in the Claines and Barbourne area and meet at The Mill, Gregory’s Mill Street, Barbourne.

Swan Theatre Amateur Company

Facebook

Worcester

Established in 1945 as SAMA (Society for Advancement of Music and Arts) the organisation was renamed to the Swan Theatre Company in 1965 when the theatre first opened and we became the resident amateur company. During that time we have presented over 200 plays on the Swan’s main stage and in the Vesta Tilley studio adjacent to the theatre. In addition, the Children’s Theatre wing has staged plays for younger theatre goers for almost as long. Several premieres have been staged by the company including a play based on a book by Dirk Bogarde, A Postilion Struck By Lightning, as well as Brian J Burton’s musical version of The Drunkard (or Down with the Demon Drink), which went on to play for eighteen months in an Off-Broadway theatre and is still performed all over the world. The Swan Theatre Company again changed its name in 2004 to the Swan Theatre Amateur Company (STAC).
We continue to produce and perform two productions a year on the main stage in the theatre and at least three plays in the studio, which has something of a cult following. Our popular Children’s Theatre also occupies the main stage, one Saturday a month from October to May, for two morning performances.
The Swan Theatre Amateur Company is a membership organisation. Our members pay a subscription to join the company on an annual basis. The membership year runs from May 1st to April 30th. We usually send newsletters and audition notices to our paying members by email.
Non-members can attend an audition but will be required to join the company if they are given a part. This also applies to technical/backstage crew etc in order to be covered by our insurance. Membership fees are reduced by 50% for anyone joining the company between December and April. For this purpose new members who have been cast are deemed to have joined when rehearsals started!

TADA!

Upton Upon Severn

Upton-upon-Severn’s amateur dramatics company, The Pepperpot Players, was first established by Martin Harker and Roger Corbett Milward in 1976, when a three-strong cast performed Anton Chekhov’s ‘The Proposal’ in the Upton Church Rooms.
The Players, whose plays, musicals, cabarets and pantomimes have been entertaining generations of audiences ever since, are now a very familiar and popular part of the community. Upton’s Memorial Hall is now our regular home, and is the venue for our evening rehearsals and the three major productions that we stage each year.
The Pepperpot Players are always looking for new faces, young or old to swell our ranks. You can get involved in lots of ways as well as acting – by designing and making costumes, creating and building props, designing and painting scenery, dance choreography, arranging and playing music, being a chaperone for younger members or by producing or directing a play – something for everyone!
Rehearsal nights are Mondays and Wednesdays from 7.30 – 9.30 pm at the Memorial Hall, Old Street, Upton-on-Severn. We look forward to meeting you!

Worcester

The Worcester Cathedral Chamber Choir is a mixed voice adult choir (SATB) comprising about 30 singers and working to a high standard of musical excellence. As a part of the historic community of Worcester Cathedral, the choir has gained a reputation for musical sensitivity and ground breaking performance.
The choir was founded in 1998 by its musical director, Stephen Shellard, in order to draw together a group of high quality singers from the local area to develop a concert repertoire and further enrich the choral tradition of Worcester Cathedral.
The establishment of the choir made history as, for the first time since its foundation nearly 1000 years ago, Worcester Cathedral included women’s voices as a part of its musical life.
