For the Best In Musical Theatre
WWOS Musical Theatre
WWOS was founded in 1935. During the first 25 years our repertoire was drawn solely from Gilbert & Sullivan and English musical comedy but in 1961 the musical comedy element was replaced by classical European operetta and in 1986 we added modern musicals, which have now become the mainstay of our repertoire. For the first 43 years we performed in various local halls but in 1979 we moved into Bromley's newly opened civic theatre where we now stage a production each Spring and Autumn. In 2002 we were invited to perform at the Minack Theatre on the cliffs at Porthcurno, Cornwall, so, in Jubilee Bank Holiday week we took a company of over 90 down to Cornwall to perform Pickwick at this most magical of open-air theatres.
We have an acting membership of approximately 75 and we meet for rehearsals at 8.00pm at the Wickham Theatre Centre, Corkscrew Hill, West Wickham, on Wednesdays. This is the home of Theatre 62, a local award winning drama group, with whom we have a strong artistic working relationship. Once the show has been cast, usually within 1 month of the start of rehearsals, then the principals rehearse at the same venue on a Monday evening.
