Eastleigh Operatic and Musical Society (EOMS) has been entertaining audiences for many years with a wide variety of musicals 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 summer. Rehearsals are at 7.30pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays at the Guide HQ 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.
Rehearsals are cancelled until further notice. Our next show will be Alan Menken and Lynn Ahrens's "A Christmas Carol" in November 2021. We hope to start rehearsals for this in late spring or summer 2021.
Planned future EOMS shows are "KIPPS", the new West End remake of "Half A Sixpence", in May 2022 and "Chess" by ABBA songwriters Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus in November 2022.
