"I have been a fan of this company for a few years now, and I have never seen anything by them that has not been of the highest standard, on every level.......I would travel a long way to see anything they take on"

About our society


Bath Operatic and Dramatic Society has been performing in Bath since 1894, although back then it was known simply as Bath Amateurs. For over 100 years society members have been passionate about putting on shows to a very high standard and reviewers have often remarked that they wouldn't look out of place at London's West End. The main musical production is performed near the beginning of each year at the Theatre Royal. With one or more smaller productions throughout the year at various other venues around Bath.
