About the Society

The aims and objectives of the Margate Operatic Society are according to our constitution 'to cultivate and promote the operatic and dramatic arts' and 'to raise funds and make donations for charitable purposes'.

The Society now presents two major musical productions per year during May and November at the Winter Gardens in Margate, one being a musical comedy and the other a pantomime or a variety show.

Membership is open to anyone from the age of 16 onward and is not confined to those wishing to perform on stage as we also have a very active backstage team, a wardrobe team and a very busy Social Committee who not only provide the very important refreshments at rehearsals but arrange various social get-togethers where the members and patrons can relax and enjoy the camaraderie we have within the Society.

The Society is fortunate in having its very own home which not only provides us with a rehearsal room, storage rooms for our props and extensive wardrobe but also a most essential 'Green Room' where we can relax during rehearsals.

The Society celebrated it's Centenary in 2007 and we very much hope that we will continue to play an important part in the amateur stage world for many years to come.
