Welcome to HAODS

We are Horsham Amateur Operatic and Dramatic Society, one of South East England’s premier amateur theatre companies and part of the cultural life of West Sussex for over sixty five years. We have a reputation for producing shows of stunning quality and originality, to great critical and audience acclaim. We perform two major musical productions every year, at the Capitol Horsham, a modern and fully equipped professional theatre, as well as plays and other entertainments.

Sister Act - November 2020

This feel good musical comedy based on the 1992 hit film is our next show. This was originally planned for May 2020 but will now take place in November instead as a result of world events – tap the poster for more information.
