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 16 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 Fees) is £70 per year which is paid by the 31st March in full, or two instalments of £35 that are payable by the 31st March and 30th September each year.

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 –
