About MAODS

Mossley Amateur Operatic & Dramatic Society is one of the most successful amateur theatre groups in the North West of England. We have a very active calendar of events based around our yearly productions of a winter production, a play and a musical production. Alongside this we have our exciting and talented Next Generation youth theatre group which meets weekly and produces its own productions throughout the year.

The Society is based at Woodend Mill in Mossley where we have our own mini theatre, rehearsal rooms and workshop facilities.

Our major productions are held at our long-standing theatre home - the George Lawton Hall Theatre, Mossley.

Please take a few minutes to browse our web site —we are multiple awards winners for our productions so if you are interested in theatre, our productions are well worth viewing!

Next Generation

Our awards winning youth theatre group holds classes in all aspects of drama, dance and musical theatre.  We also supplement these with choral and special group sessions.  Students from ages 5+ are accepted and no experience is required.

What's On

We are really excited that our next prodution is Parade on 24-29 April 2017 at the George Lawton Hall, Mossley. Parade premiered on Broadway in 1998 and has won a total of 9 Tony Awards for Best Book and Best Original Score.

Want To Join Us?

All budding thespians are welcome of course but if being on the stage isn't your thing, then perhaps being behind the scenes is!  Volunteers are always welcomed, whether working with our committee members or our scenery workshop team.  Please get in touch to find out more.
