With just over a month to go until the opening night of Little Shop of Horrors, our rehearsals are getting intense! Some of our cast were also lucky enough to visit Flowers & Sparkle Florists in Sevenoaks, and they felt quite at home amongst the bright blooms of this beautiful shop! We didn’t manage to spot the elusive Audrey Two during our visit, but we’re sure she’ll make an appearance at The Stag Theatre in November, so don’t miss it!
Tickets are now selling fast for the show so make sure you pick yours up soon, we’d love to see you in the audience for this cult comedy musical classic featuring songs from Academy Award winner Alan Menken (Aladdin, Sister Act, The Little Mermaid).

We all made the most of our long summer break, and enjoyed the few weeks of sunshine that the South East had to offer! We brushed up on our song lyrics, and tried to remember our harmonies so that on 1st September at 7:30pm, our first floor rehearsal could kick off with a bang!
We’ll be working hard for the next couple of months on Little Shop of Horrors, putting together a show full of amazing songs, fabulous dances and of course, theatreland’s most bloodthirsty plant! We’d love you to come along to the show, which will be performed at The Stag Theatre, Sevenoaks from 19th – 21st November 2015. Buy tickets HERE!

Petts Wood Operatic Society has enjoyed the comforts of our York Rise hall for decades, but sadly this weekend we said goodbye to the hall in favour of pastures new. The hall contains many fond memories for PWOS members past and present and therefore working through the accumulated costumes, props and leftover bits of scenery was an emotional task for members. A huge thanks goes to everyone who helped out with the move, and we hope Petts Wood Operatic Society finds itself thriving in the warmth and welcome of our new home, barely a mile down the road.
As rehearsals kick into gear for our Thank You For The Musicals concert series, now is the perfect time to get your tickets! We will be performing songs from all your favourite shows such as Carousel, Company, Fiddler on the Roof and Les Miserables.
Saturday 16 November at Hayes Village Hall
