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 summmer. 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. We are an amateur company, affiliated to the National Operatic and Dramatic Association (NODA)

Shows coming up in 2019:
  • Footlights Youth Theatre: Grease, Tues 19th to Sat 23rd March at the Plaza Theatre, Romsey
  • EOMS: Thoroughly Modern Millie, Thurs 9th to Sat 11th May 2019 at The Point, Eastleigh
