'NADSA, as it has been affectionately known for almost the whole of its existence, was saddled with the title of Newton Abbot and District Society of Arts by its founding fathers back in 1946. To date there is no record of NADSA’s constitution ever being amended, so it is still living with such lofty aims as: “The Objects of the Society shall be to promote, maintain, improve and advance the education of the public in the arts and sciences of music, opera, ballet, drama, film, photography, literature, painting, drawing and sculpture by the presentation of performances, exhibitions and other activities.” ...'

'The Company began life in 2004 as New Devon Opera and produced for the first time in 2005. Performances were in English, supported by an amateur chorus. New Devon Opera continued for several seasons before rebranding as Devon Opera and switching to fully professional performances in the original language ... We aim to attract opera newbies as well as opera enthusiasts to experience the pleasure of fine singing, acting and sensational music in some of the most magical settings in Devon.'

‘We are the only permanent theatrical group operating in the town of Newton Abbot, Devon, England and we are a member of N.O.D.A. ... We produce a Pantomime in early January followed by a musical show later in the year. This is sometimes supplemented by a NEWTS production – our junior society – which usually takes place in the spring ... The Pantomimes ... have become so successful that they now provide the majority of the income of the Society.’

Has developed significantly in recent years, having been originally formed in the 1970s. Now tackles relatively ambitious works, and presents concerts at several venues around and about Newton Abbot: ‘We don't hold formal auditions, but after sharing info by email we usually suggest that you attend for a couple of rehearsals to see if the NAO is for you (and vice versa). We do have some younger players, though a minimum of Grade 5 standard is recommended’.
