Brixham Operatic & Dramatic Society is a friendly amateur society long established in the town for nearly a hundred years! They generally perform at Brixham Theatre and in a typical year will produce a pantomime, a play and a musical. Past performances include the pantomime ‘Snow White & The Seven Dwarfs’. Plays have included the stage versions of hit TV shows such as ‘The Vicar of Dibley’, ‘Fawlty Towers’ and ‘Are You Being Served?’ Recent musical successes have included ‘The Wizard of Oz’ and ‘Oliver’.
They are very much a family-oriented group who welcome new members of all ages. Membership for adults is £25 per year and £10 for children and this includes insurance whilst in rehearsal and on stage.
Rehearsals and auditions for all our shows take place at BOADS Music Hall, Cavern Road, off Mount Pleasant Road, Brixham TQ5 9RR.

Rehearsals are now underway for a BOADS play: ‘Hi De Hi’ to be performed at Brixham Theatre Thursday 31st May, Friday 1st June and Saturday 2nd June, 7.30pm. This is the stage version of the hit TV comedy series based in a ’50s holiday camp. It promises to be hilarious with lots of fun – don’t miss it!
We are already making plans for our next musical which takes place in October. This year it is that perennial favourite, ‘My Fair Lady’ which will be a sumptuous and colourful production featuring memorable songs such as ‘On the Street Where You Live’ and ‘I’m Getting Married in the Morning’. BOADS musicals are also accompanied by a live orchestra. There will be lots of opportunities to get involved both backstage and on stage: either in the chorus or taking a feature role. The Director is Isabel White and if you need more info. please contact her on: firstname.lastname@example.org
‘My Fair Lady’ will take place at Brixham Theatre Wednesday 24th October to Saturday 27th October 7.30pm plus a matinee on Saturday 27th at 2.30pm.
All interested in getting involved are welcome to come along to two informal meetings about the show at our rehearsal hall – adults and young adults. This will be an opportunity to find out more about the characters in ‘My Fair Lady’ and hear the songs. These will be on Monday 23rd April and Monday 30th April, both at 7pm.
Auditions: Principal Roles – Sunday 13th May, 2pm
Supporting Roles & Chorus – Sunday 20th May 2pm (all at BOADS Rehearsal Hall)
The first rehearsal is on Monday 4th June.
The quality of the production is amazing. Can't wait for the next show
The Vicar of Dibley was truly hilarious - even better than the TV series.
