Welcome to Mossley Amateur Operatic & Dramatic Society
& Next Generation Youth Theatre
Mossley Amateur Operatic & Dramatic Society are one of the most successful amateur theatre groups in the North West of England. We have a very active calendar of events based around our yearly productions of a winter production, a play and a musical production. Alongside this we have our exciting and talented Next Generation youth theatre group which meets weekly and produces its own productions throughout the year.
The Society is based at Woodend Mill, Mossley with major productions at the George Lawton Hall Theatre, Mossley. For directions and a general overview of where we are click on our Find Us page to the left.
We also have our own mini-theatre and rehearsal rooms and workshop facilities at Woodend Mill, Mossley. Visit our new woodend Mill page for pictures and a walk-around video.
Please take a few minutes to browse our website—we are multiple awards winners for our productions—if you are interested in theatre our productions are well worth viewing!
