Eastleigh Operatic & Musical Society

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.

The society performed its first show, The Mikado, at Eastleigh Town Hall (now The Point) in 1937. We are an amateur company, affiliated to the National Operatic and Dramatic Association (NODA)
