| Welcome to the website of Shrewsbury Amateur Operatic Society and to the wonderful world of Musical Theatre. SAOS is a friendly active Society of keen players who regularly perform Musicals at Theatre Severn, Shrewsbury, to much acclaim. Over the years we have been successful in winning many NODA awards for our productions.
We are fortunate in being able to perform our shows at Theatre Severn, with all the facilities that a professional theatre can offer, but the Society is more than the faces you see on stage. We are a Society that brings together people from all communities through our love of music and performance and we base our values on inclusivity and friendship. These values are at the heart of all of our productions and have helped produce many outstanding performances. In addition to our stage activities the Society hosts a number of social events throughout the year.
Our next major production will be The Wizard of Oz. Rehearsals and auditions will start in January 2020 with five performances scheduled between 3rd and 6th of June 2020. We are very much looking forward to this family favourite.
Before then, sometime in November, we are planning to perform a series of songs - with a twist! Backwards Broadway will be an alternative take on many of our favourite songs. It gives our members a chance to perform songs they wouldn’t normally get a chance to sing. Men will be singing songs normally sung by women, women will sing mens songs. The more mature members of the society can re-live their youth by taking on songs typically reserved for the young and visa versa.If you are interested in joining our friendly, fun Society then head over to our HOW TO JOIN page now.
A BIG WELCOME AWAITS YOU
