Overton Dramatic Society (ODS)
Welcome to the website of the Overton Dramatic Society (or "ODS")! We are a small, friendly society based in Overton, in Hampshire, UK. We've produced at least two shows per year since 1980. These days we conduct most of our rehearsals at the Overton Recreation Centre in Bridge Street, Overton, and our productions take place at St Mary's Hall, in the High Street.
Our next show will be: Avenue Q
Come and join a human and puppet cast for a heart- warming, sometimes risque´, tale of the residents of Avenue Q as they learn to live, and love, in New York City. Think Sesame Street with adult themes, humour and songs.
From the award winner writers Robert Lopez (also known for Book of Mormon and Frozen) and Jeff Marx, Avenue Q has won 3 Tony Awards (Best Musical, Best Book, Best Original Score).
Readings and Auditions are on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6th to 20th January starting at 7:45pm at Overton Recreation Centre, Bridge Street, Overton RG25 3HB. Everyone welcome (minimum age for this show is 16)
Show week itself is 1st-6th June 2015. If you'd like any more information, please do contact us.
Our last show was The Three Musketeers!
Overton Dramatic Society - awarding winning amateur drama!
In Summer 2012, ODS produced "Sweeney Todd - the Demon Barber of Fleet Street" - the brilliant stage musical now running in the West End. The show ran from May 22-26th 2012, and was extremely successful. We are really proud that our production of "Sweeney Todd" was awarded a NODA Accolade of Excellence for the best musical in the North Hampshire district in the last year. The award was presented at the NODA South East Annual Conference.
