in the country," former critic for The Stage

SODS have earned a reputation for presenting stylish shows and always endeavour to produce performances of the highest possible quality, with a meticulous eye for detail and excellence.

We are always eager to attract enthusiastic and talented new members aged 18 and over: if you can sing, dance and act you are warmly welcome to come along for an audition, so do please contact us - don't delay, message us today!

Our subscription (or membership fee) for acting members is £70 per year, which is paid during out autumn show (usually presented each November) and covers the next two productions.

Those members taking part in a show also pay a £30 production fee, which contributes towards the costs of putting on that production.

Cast members will also need a script and score for the production, which is hired from the rights holders and the fee for this is £25.


To book your audition, please contact our Membership Secretary, who will be happy to give you any further details you may need. You can contact them by email at
