Perhaps you’ve always wanted to be on stage, but never had the chance before? Or perhaps you’ve been onstage in the past and would now like to step into the spotlight again?

Membership auditions to join AOS take place twice a year, immediately before each new production begins rehearsal. You must be over sixteen years of age to audition for AOS, but we love to welcome young people. If you think you might like to join us and feel part of the performing team that makes a show come to life, why not email us at the address above or complete this application form.

Our next auditions for new members wanting to appear in Guys and Dolls will be on Thursday 18 April 2024. We’ll post more details about venue, date and times closer to the time.

Our backstage crew is brilliant too!

We couldn’t put on a show without the fantastic support our backstage crew offers. So if you think you might be interested in carpentry, set design, hair and make-up, or costumes, do please email us at for more details on your area of interest.

AOS meets every Tuesday evening from the talk-in to show week. Rehearsals start at 7:30pm and usually last until 10:00pm, with a coffee break in the middle for general chat. All Tuesday rehearsals are held at Trinity Church Hall, Conduit Road, Abingdon.

Thursday evening rehearsals are also called, initially for principal characters in a show, but as the production progresses the full company can occasionally be required to attend.

Sometimes a Sunday afternoon rehearsal is called, but this is usually only in the immediate run-up to a show.

A firm commitment is expected of our members and regular attendance is important. However, it is not always necessary for everyone to attend each rehearsal. The director will produce a rehearsal schedule to indicate who is needed.
