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!
