2008 - NODA Review: Seven Brides for Seven Brothers

Kidderminster Operatic & Dramatic Society Seven Brides for Seven Brothers Director: Nigel Preece Musical Director: Barry Hipkiss Choreographer: Denise Churchett Venue: Rose Theatre, Kidderminster Not an easy show to stage but KODS rose to the challenge and came up with a truly remarkable presentation. The performances from Kathryn Knight and Darren Richards as the two [...]

2008 - Review: Seven Brides for Seven Brothers

Taken From The Kidderminster Shuttle March 11th 2008 KIDDERMINSTER Operatic and Dramatic Society have pulled out all the stops to present this superb production of one of my all-time favourite shows. Darren Richards, as usual, gives an excellent performance as Adam Pontipes, who sets out to find a wife to care for him and his [...]

2007 - Review: Murdered to Death

Taken From The Kidderminster Shuttle September 24th 2007 DESCRIBED as “the funniest whodunnit Agatha Christie never wrote”, KODS’ production of this hilarious play did not disappoint. Mildred Bagshot lives at her country house with her niece and butler. An old flame and his wife visit for the weekend, along with a French art dealer, and [...]

2007 - Review: Anything Goes

Taken From The Kidderminster Shuttle March 6th 2007 The music of Cole Porter, great routines, good acting/singing and colourful costumes make a visit to the Rose Theatre a good idea – though hurry as there are very few tickets left. Direct by Nigel Preece, with Sue Preece as musical director, there is really nothing to [...]

2006 - Review: Pardon Me, Prime Minister

Taken From The Kidderminster Shuttle September 14th 2006 THIS farce by Edward Taylor and John Graham tells of a prime minister and his Scottish chancellor of the exchequer who wants his job, and has the support of many MPs. Hang on – that sounds rather familiar! I hope that is where the similarity ends or [...]

2006 - Review: My Fair Lady

Taken From The Kidderminster Shuttle NEVER mind how cold it is outside, anyone with a ticket to see this production will have a heart-warming experience guaranteed to beat the winter blues. The casting was inspired – we all knew Nigel Preece would be brilliant as Henry Higgins and, as always, he did not let us [...]

2005 - Review: Key for Two

Taken From The Kidderminster Shuttle September 15th 2005 THIS is one of the funniest plays I have ever seen, a real pleasure to watch. It demands good timing, as it verges on farce, but the Kidderminster Operatic and Dramatic Society’s (KODS) talented cast were on top form. Pat Scully was sparkling as Harriet, the lady [...]

2005 - Review: KODS Kapers

Taken From The Kidderminster Shuttle May 26th 2005 I ENJOYED an evening in the company of Kidderminster Operatic and Dramatic Society immensely, with a programme of songs which included many old favourites from the shows, plus a sprinkling of newer items. The artistes are too numerous to mention all, but one of the younger ones [...]

2004 - Review: Daisy Pulls it Off

Taken From The Kidderminster Shuttle September 16th 2004 “JOLLY hockeysticks” abound in this tale of a “posh” girls school, where the students are horrified to learn that an elementary schoolgirl has won a scholarship to their establishment. Among the pranks and midnight feasts, there is much snobbery, and dirty tricks galore, and even a hunt [...]

2004 - NODA Review: The Pirates of Penzance

Kidderminster Operatic and Dramatic Society Youth Section The Pirates of Penzance Director: Denise Churchett Musical Director: Pam Craven Venue: Baxter College Theatre KODYs annual show presentation this year had a change of production team with a different type of show and a lot of new faces in the line-up.
