Standing room only for Sister Act!

It’s always nice to play to full houses and Sister Act has certainly provided these for us. Over the six performances we squeezed into the week of 24 - 28 October 2017, we performed the show in front of more than 2000 members of our community. A large part of our charitable objective is to bring musical entertainment to the community of Abingdon, so it’s particularly pleasing to feel that we’re succeeding in this.

A few comments from our Facebook page:

“Fabulous show last night. What a cast! Kevin Pope nearly made me pee my pants with laughter!” Sophie

“What an amazing show tonight. I was totally blown away. AOS, you are all so talented.” Claire

“A fine show, with a feel good factor for all, audience and performers alike.” Bethan

AOS uses its Facebook page as the main vehicle for news and updates, for members, friends and audience. Please Like Us to be kept in the loop!

AOS photo archive now online

Like many operatic societies, our archive is full of dusty, fading photo albums hidden away on a friendly member’s shelves, where no one can ever see them.

To rescue these valuable memories, in recent months we’ve been working to digitalise our archives, scanning photos, 35mm slides and (wherever possible) programmes and press cuttings. Browse them now on our Flickr page here.
