Last night was our final Carousel rehearsal of 2014, with our cast singing through some of our favourite tunes from this fabulous Rogers and Hammerstein production.
We return to the rehearsal room on Tuesday 6th January 2015 at 7:45pm. All are welcome to come along and join us for these music rehearsals and to join the society for this show. With Director Christine Mabbott, Musical Director Louisa Lowing and Choreographer David Ball, Carousel is sure to be a moving and spectacular show for all the family and we’d love YOU to join us!
Whether in a main role, in the chorus or backstage in our technical crew, we hope to welcome many new members to PWOS in 2015. We are also excited to announce that Carousel will include many children, who are invited to audition on Sunday 1st February.

There is then an additional £50 fee to participate in a show. Rehearsals take place at 7:45pm on Tuesdays (and some Thursdays) in the music block of Newstead Wood School, Orpington.

We’ve just finished a fabulous fun week performing Iolanthe at The Stag Theatre, Sevenoaks. A huge thank you to the audiences who came to support PWOS, we hope you enjoyed seeing the show as much as we enjoyed performing it!
Another big round of applause to our backstage and technical team, our costume team, MD Ian Skipper and his orchestra, and our director Clive Bebee.
Next week sees the launch of our Spring 2015 production, Carousel!
With less than two weeks until opening night of Iolanthe at The Stag Theatre we thought we’d treat you all to a sneaky behind the scenes peek at rehearsals for this hilarious Gilbert and Sullivan classic! Let us know what you think and we hope you can come along to the theatre to join the fun in this swinging scandalous show!

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.
First rehearsals (open to all): 24th June at 7:45pm and 1st July at 8:15pm at Newstead Wood School, Avebury Road, Orpington. Follow the signs for Bromley Tennis Centre and you will see our rehearsal room (the music block) on your right. There is plenty of parking available just outside.
