Past Musicals

A very large range of musical shows have been produced by KODS. The Societies first production was Gilbert & Sullivan's "Patience", produced in 1916. This was followed by "The Gondoliers" in 1917, "The Mikado" in 1918 and "Trial by Jury/HMS Pinafore" in 1919.

Through the intervening years, the list includes shows seen less often today, such as the "Arcadians" (1931) the "Gypsy Princess" (1933) "Floradora" (1935) "Rose Marie" (1936) "Good Night Vienna" (1937) to name but a few!

There was a gap between 1940-46 during WW2. But in 1947 it was business as usual, with "A Waltz Dream", followed in 1948 by "The Lilac Domino". KODS turned their hands to "Oklahoma" in 1955 to be followed by several return visits to this popular show in latter years. Other Rodgers & Hammerstein shows include "The King & I" (1966), "The Sound of Music" (1971) & "Carousel" (1973). Cole Porter shows have seen the light of day on occasions, with "Kiss me Kate" brushing up our Shakespeare in 1974 and 1993.
