We are a Midlands based Musical Theatre Company. We perform annually at the Grand Theatre Wolverhampton. We also have a youth company for 9-18 year olds
HAVING ENTERTAINED AUDIENCES FOR OVER 85 YEARS, WE ARE THE OLDEST AMATEUR THEATRE COMPANY IN THE AREA.
Established in 1927, the company performed annually at The Theatre Royal in Bilston for 30 years before moving to The Grand Theatre in Wolverhampton where we have been ever since.
Affiliated to the National Operatic Dramatic Association
We are an amateur company, but strive to produce theatre of a professional standard. We aim to provide high quality final productions combined with relaxed, enjoyable and creative rehearsals. Bilston Operatic Company offers its members unprecedented opportunities to become involved in all aspects of its theatrical production, whether as performers, props and scenery builders, stage technicians and much more.
We pride ourselves on being a friendly company and welcome all new members to our ‘family’ to share our enthusiasm, join our passion and most of all to have fun.
We are very happy to announce that we have won NODA awards for the following
Hairspray - Best Musical production in the region 2015
