We rehearse two nights a week (Mondays principals & Tuesdays chorus) at Barn Hill Church Hall, in Stamford. Our annual production takes place in October.
Stamford Operatic Society was originally formed in 1905. Their first production was The Gondoliers, followed by a variety of other musicals and operettas. However, the passion to perform exclusively G&S was too alluring for many members, and so the Stamford Gilbert and Sullivan Players formed. The first production, HMS Pinafore, was staged in 1951, and we have been performing the G&S canon ever since.
We have won NODA awards for our recent productions of Patience, Iolanthe and The Sorcerer, and our group has featured on the cover of the NODA TODAY magazine.
