'For performing members a brief audition will be required so we may “see what you are capable of”. It is nothing to worry about, it is just our way to assess where you would best fit in the society. After all, if you join you will be performing to audiences in theatres such as The Crescent. We place members in singing voices, Soprano, Alto, Tenor, Baritone and Bass. If you don’t know where you fit into the above – don’t worry we will help you! Can you dance? Presently we have dancers who both sing and dance and have joined us from a number of dance schools and have featured in many of our major productions.'

'At the end of the First World War, a group of people in the St John's Amateur Operatic Society formed the Cleckheaton and Spenborough Amateur Operatic Society.  St John's Amateur Operatic Society was based at the Parish Church, whose President was Reverend C. S. Newell. Their premier performance was Aladdin and Out in 1918. Since then, with the exception of two World Wars, the Society has performed at least one show every year, and donated thousands of pounds to charity. Times have changed and the Society now performs more modern plays and musicals, and of course the ever popular Christmas Carol Concert.'

'Crediton Operatic Society, now known as CODS, began life in 1964 with a public meeting to form a G and S Society. The first musical production "HMS Pinafore" was staged in 1965 ... HMS Pinafore cost approximately £280 to stage. Contrast this with our current main Musical Productions which cost on average about £15,000- £18,000 to produce. There is no theatre in Crediton so each CODS production is staged in one of two halls at the local College Academy. Everything has to be transported and constructed at either of these halls, and of course, cleared away afterwards!'

'Formed in 1988 ... At the time, the majority of local Amateur Theatre/Musical Societies required singing and acting auditions to be undertaken before any prospective candidate could become a member, but it was obvious that there many people who have a passion to be on stage, but didn’t have the necessary skills ... This principal is still maintained ... If you are keen, then you are accepted, and taught the rudiments of acting by the director/producer.'

'Founded in 1890 and research concludes that probably only six societies in the whole of the country came into existence before that year and still survive. These are based in Brighton, Evesham, Paignton, Settle, Spalding and Tunbridge Wells ... The SODS have two paramount and parallel responsibilities: they have to provide the audiences with productions which are consistently of the highest possible standard and at the same time provide all the members with a hobby which is both rewarding and enjoyable ... Every artistic aspect has always been firmly underpinned by strong organisational, financial and stage management and the Society has now evolved into a business – it is only “amateur” in as much as the cast are not paid! Accordingly, the continuing success of the Society in three centuries is every bit as much thanks to a succession of committed and unsung administrators as to its performers on stage ...'
