Chichester Amateur Operatic Society (CAOS) was formed as a Gilbert and Sullivan society and the first performance by the society was the Pirates of Penzance on the 18th January 1911.

With this more ambitious programme, it was decided to rename the society in 2003 CAOS Musical Productions. Our rehearsal evening is on Fridays at St Wilfrid's Church Hall, Chichester. We endeavour to cater for all ages and our current memberships spans over 60 years.

In recent years, we have branched out into other areas such as revue style shows, old time music hall and concerts of favourites from the West End and Broadway shows, and mainstream musicals, such as Fiddler on the Roof and Anything Goes.

Award winning ENCORE Youth Theatre is Winchester’s only youth theatre specialising in musical theatre. We want everyone who joins us to achieve their greatest potential; growing as unique individuals as they develop both performance and inter-personal skills.

As well as performing on-stage, members have the chance to get involved behind the scenes by becoming part of our youth committee. They help run the company in areas such as production, marketing, fundraising and finance.
Auditions are held in July and rehearsals take place every Sunday from September until February. Production Week is at the Theatre Royal Winchester during February half term.
ENCORE is a Community Interest Company. All adult supporters, many of whom work in the professional theatre, give their time for nothing more than the love of, and a commitment to, the ethos of the company.
