Welcome from the Chairman

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to the Manx Operatic Society, based in Douglas, Isle of Man. Founded in 1949, we are proud to be long standing and well established on the Island for providing not only entertaining shows each year but also an interesting and exciting hobby for all our members both on and off stage.

We have a large membership of various age ranges from 14 – 80 years old, many of whom have been in the society since their teenage years. Β We are an active member of The National Operatic and Dramatic Society (NODA) since their inception in 1983 and are proud to boast a number of awards won over the years.

We pride ourselves on the high standards we set ourselves, always ensuring that what you see on stage is a thoroughly professional production. This is why out membership return to us each year, bringing with them new members who have seen our shows and wish to be a part of a hard working, professional company.

We give our members exciting experience in theatre, both on and offstage which many have taken away with them to stage schools and universities.

If you feel that you would like to become a part of the MOS, either as an onstage, offstage or social member please contact us through the contact page on this site. We look forward to hearing from you.

Ian Openshaw
