NODA Accolade of Excellence

Every year the National Operatic and Dramatic Association - NODA - present ‘Accolades of Excellence’ to shows that are the best in their category.  In the last few years, we have TWICE won this accolade for our productions of The Yeomen of the Guard and The Pirates of Penzance.

Never a dull moment!

So - What’s happening this year

Spring Show

Well we have a busy and exciting year coming up starting with our Spring Show which will be a selection of personal favourites of Mr Gilbert and Mr Sullivan titled “Little List of Gems”.

The show will be on as follows, so please get the dates in your diary:

Friday 9th May - Barrington Theatre, Ferndown - 7.30pm
Friday 16th May - Regent Centre, Christchurch - 7.30pm
Saturday 17th May - Tivoli Theatre, Wimborne - 7.30pm

Gala Concert

On Saturday 21st June we are staging a spectacular Gala Concert in the Concert Hall of Poole’s Lighthouse, involving professional principals as well as our own; a huge chorus from many societies in the local area; and with the professional operatic baritone Mr Simon Butteriss as the Master of Ceremonies all accompanied by a full orchestra.

All proceeds will go to Macmillan Caring Locally, our local Macmillan centre based at Christchurch hospital.

Main October Show

The Main Show will run from Wed 22nd to Sat 25th October 2014 and is going to be the favourite of many G&S fans
Main Show

If you did come to see the show then we do hope you enjoyed it.

We have had so many people saying it was one of the best shows they have seen.  Comments such as “Better than any professional production of Yeomen…” have been sent to us and several people came to see the show more than once - including one man who changed his holiday so that he could come a second time!

Earlier in the year…

We had our series of Spring Shows and Concerts back in May which this year included a costumed, staged concert version of Die Fledermaus by Johann Strauss, as well as some of the favourite G&S numbers.

On Sunday 23rd June we were invited back for the third year to West Green House in Berkshire to give a costumed concert at one of their exclusive tea-time events.  All the details are on the ‘Other Events’ page, with some photographs of the day.

We always finish our year with a carol season leading up to Christmas, raising money for the Macmillan Cancer Unit at Christchurch - see the Charities page for all our charity work. We are very proud that over the many years of singing carols we have raised over £60,000 and December 2013 saw a record collection of over £4600 to add to that. Thank you so much to all those who gave so generously.
