After 17 months and with two cancelled or postponed shows behind them, the Worksop Light Operatic Society is back in business.
Although the members have kept in contact through Zoom meetings and rehearsals, and the production of a song video, at long last in person rehearsals have commenced for a concert to be held at the Acorn Theatre on Saturday 6th November.
The keenness to be back and enthusiasm to be taking part can be seen from some of the comments made at the end of the first rehearsal: “It was fantastic! I went home absolutely buzzing!”, “It was amazing and I had so much fun. It was so lovely to be back together again and doing what we do best. I think we sounded pretty damn good” and “Even though our singing muscles were a little bit rusty, everyone sounded gorgeous.”
Tickets for the concert will be £12.00 for all seats, and will be on sale via the Acorn Box Office and Society members. If you have missed the sight and sound of live theatre during the pandemic, now is your chance to enjoy it again.
Not content with preparing for this concert, plans are also ongoing for the Society’s next full musical, which is to be ‘Made in Dagenham’, an inspiring true story of determination and solidarity set in a 1960s car factory. This will be again at the Acorn Theatre, from 18th to 21st May 2022.
If you have ever wanted to be part of such a production, the Society is always happy to welcome new members. Further information about both these productions can be found on the Society’s Facebook page or on their website, www.worksoplightoperaticsociety.weebly.com.
