AOS celebrates diamond jubilee for sixty years of productions
We’re celebrating our diamond jubilee. Back in 1958, the fledgling Abingdon Amateur Operatic Society decide to take a risk and stage a full production of Gilbert and Sullivan’s Iolanthe. They must have been concerned that it would fail, that no one would buy tickets, that the organisation would prove too much for the group.
But today, in 2018, Abingdon Operatic Society is in rude health for a sixty year old. With Singin’ in the Rain now part of our history, we’re looking forward to staging Top Hat in the autumn and hopefully introducing more of our Abingdon audience to the pleasure of musical theatre.
For members, we have several celebration events planned for the year, including an anniversary dinner and an afternoon on the Thames. It’s going to be a great year, and here’s to the next sixty!
