Eastleigh Operatic and Musical Society (EOMS) has been entertaining audiences for many years with a wide variety of musicals, operettas and concerts, and we currently perform two shows a year at The Point, Eastleigh. We are a lively and friendly group and new members are welcome, whether you would like to join the society as a chorus member, a potential principal, or to help back stage. New performing members normally join during the first few rehearsals for each show.

Our productions take place in May and November. We rehearse throughout the year, with a break in the summmer. Rehearsals are at 7.30pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays at the community centre in Hoddinott Road, Eastleigh. We also have a very successful junior section - Footlights Youth Theatre - for young people from the age of 8 to 18. We are an amateur company, affiliated to the National Operatic and Dramatic Association (NODA)

Our next EOMS senior show is Gilbert and Sullivan's THE MIKADO. Directed by Jacqui Beckingham, with Musical Director Rob Jones, the show runs at The Point, Eastleigh, Thursday 10th to Saturday 12th May 2018. Tickets are available now from the box office at The Point.
