Central Operatic Society

Derby

Friendly, socially active all-year-round society based in Derby who stage at least one musical each year, sometimes two.
We also give concerts, sometimes stage fundraising murder mystery plays and hold various fundraising events – quiz nights, games evenings etc.
Membership is 16 years and over and is subject to a short audition.
We rehearse Wednesdays and sometimes Thursdays, then nearer the show, Sunday afternoons.
We are a friendly and closely knit group of people who enjoy each other’s company and share a love of musical theatre. We would welcome new members who feel they could commit to our busy rehearsal schedule and contribute to our timetable of fundraising activities that help to keep our valued society financially secure.
If you’re 16 or over and are interested in becoming an acting member, please download and complete the application form below and send it on to us. You will then be invited for a short informal audition during which we will ask you to sing a song of your choice, read a few lines from a script that we provide on the night and learn a short sequence of dance steps just to prove you don’t have two left feet!
We will then let you know by letter whether or not you were successful – that’s all there is to it!
Our main rehearsal night is Wednesday with additional rehearsals for principals on Thursday evenings. As we approach the show, we hold Sunday afternoon rehearsals to facilitate full run throughs.
Every production is different and the skills we need in the cast and chorus can vary so everyone has to audition for each production to ensure that we have the appropriate acting membership on stage each time.
Non-acting membership is for those acting members who are not intending to appear in our major production in any particular year.

Chellaston

St Peters Church Hall, Chellaston, Derby
Chellaston Players are a Derby based amateur theatre company performing at venues in Chellaston and Derby.
Chellaston Players was formed in 1975 after nine people from Chellaston responded to Edna Ford's advertisement for a new drama group. The group had no money, no props, no scenery, and limited experience but this didn't stop them!
Since our humble beginnings, Chellaston Players have grown from strength to strength. A number of our members have received accolades and awards from the Derby Amateur Theatre Association and some have gone on to professional jobs, including one BAFTA winner in 2011!. We are always grounded and perform a number of shows each year primarily at our home in Chellaston.

Members of the Derby Gilbert & Sullivan Company find they get much more than they expect when they join this company whose current age range is 2-80 years!

Tours to Ireland, USA and Canada, World Champion status through regular IGSF appearances, capers across the country including performing in concert productions of the works of G&S and all manner of other great stuff!
The company is dedicated to giving people from all walks of life an opportunity to enjoy and experience the passion and unrivalled fun of performance and theatre.
Let's be honest! What did you do with your spare time in 2010?
Members of the Derby G&S Company took a show to Gettysburg, USA, competed in an International competition in Buxton, performed in the amazing Victorian Theatre inside Chatsworth House and put on two shows in a week at the Derby Theatre!
Not only would you enjoy this level of theatre experience, there is also an active social side to the company which sees them doing events such as Ghost Walks, Treasure Hunts, barbecues, curry nights and the infamous DGSC pub quiz.
If you are from Derby or surrounding areas and are interested in taking up a very social, year round hobby with the opportunity to learn new theatre skills including costumes, make-up, back stage crewing and of course treading the boards, then why not give theatre a try.
