BETTY BLUE EYES| Rehearsals Begin

We have just had a brilliant first rehearsal for the hilarious musical BETTY BLUE EYES with music from George Stiles and Anthony Drewe (The Wind in the Willows, Mary Poppins, Half A Sixpence) and we already absolutely love this show. Based on Alan Bennett’s ‘A Private Function’ it is full of wit, love and some very apt commentary on austerity in post-war Britain!

If you would like to join us on stage or backstage for Betty Blue Eyes then we would love to have you! Come along on Tuesday 13 December at 7.45pm to the music block of Newstead Wood School, Avebury Road, Orpington to hear more about the show, sing some songs and learn about prinicpal role auditions!

We had an absolute blast performing Guys & Dolls at The Stag Theatre this month! A huge thank you to the audiences, cast, backstage and creative teams who all came together to make this a great 80th Anniversary production for PWOS.

We are now starting work on our Autumn 2016 production, ANNIE!

We are absolutely thrilled to announce that the orphans of Miss Hannigan’s orphanage will be played by the elite teams of the Lucy Griffiths Dance and Theatre Academy. We will, however, be holding open auditions for the role of Annie herself, so if you or anyone you know could play this feisty young orphan then email pwosdigital@gmail.com for information!

Our 80th Anniversary Production

Petts Wood Operatic Society is thrilled to present GUYS AND DOLLS as its 80th Anniversary show in 2016. The Street Singer was the society’s first production in the spring of 1936. Now, 80 years on and with a bigger and more vibrant membership than ever, PWOS is delighted to bring GUYS AND DOLLS to The Stag Theatre, Sevenoaks

GUYS AND DOLLS is the classic American musical, featuring the brilliant Luck Be A Lady, Sit Down You’re Rockin’ The Boat and Sue Me. 

Bad boy gambler Sky Masterson takes on a bet to woo the straight laced Miss Sarah Brown, all for the sake of a dice game. Can Sky get Sarah to fall for him, all without falling for her himself? Meanwhile, Adelaide, night club performer and long suffering fiancée of Nathan Detroit is losing her patience after a 14 year engagement which is proving bad for her health. Will Nathan ever give up the thrill of gambling and settle down with Adelaide?

A romantic comedy set against the staggering Manhattan skyline, GUYS AND DOLLS is a musical that will leave you tapping your toes and singing along as you leave the theatre!

With just over a month to go until the opening night of Little Shop of Horrors, our rehearsals are getting intense!

Directed by Clive Bebee with Musical Direction from Daniel Beach.

Scandal in Parliament (nothing new there then).  It’s the swinging 1960s and Strephon Ward a common garden park keeper, has been dragged down into a scandal.  His beautiful girlfriend Phyllis, a deck chair attendant, is being courted by half the House of Lords. Even the Lord Chancellor is captivated by her charms. What no one knows is, Strephon is half a fairy and his mother, Iolanthe, (recently pardoned by the Fairy Queen for marrying a mortal 25 years earlier) all her sisters and aunts never grow old. Then double scandal he is discovered comforting a very young looking girl who is his mother in reality and his dreams of happiness are shattered.

Join Petts Wood Operatic Society for a new ‘Twist’ and ‘Shout’ on a G&S Classic with all the original music and words but a production based on the ‘Profumo affair’ with Mary Quant inspired fairies, sharp suited lords and a Lord Chancellor with a magic teddy bear.
