About Us

History

It's now over 80 years since the society was formed in 1932, presenting its first show in 1933. That show was 'The Mikado' and proved to be the first of many highly successful shows. This prompted the society to widen its horizons as over the years it progressed through Romberg, Novello, Rogers and Hammerstein, Lerner and Loewe, Porter and Bart always presenting high quality shows to ever appreciative audiences. However "named " shows are only part of the story. The membership of the society had the foresight to take advantage of a situation in which a local chapel was sadly being closed. By purchasing this chapel and developing the building, the "Operatic Centre" was created and now stands proudly in George Street, Wombwell, testament to hard work and enterprise and the envy of so many other societies. It was this foresight which enables us now (thanks to the facilities at our disposal) to present a minimum of 5 shows per year.

We have a wonderful tradition to maintain at Wombwell and you too can be part of it. All new members are welcome to join us. If you can sing,dance or act... you could be part of the performing team. If you can wield a paint brush...you can be part of the maintenance team. If you can handle a needle...you could be part of the sewing team. If you can make coffee...you are welcomed with open arms by all teams !!

If you want to sit back and be entertained ...welcome to our audience. You'll be part of a very happy crowd.
