Backstage crew – Made in Dagenham 2017

There are few experiences that can top taking part in a stage show, either on stage or off. At HAODS we are a lively, friendly society that is keen to welcome new members. Even if you have never set a foot on the stage before you will soon find yourself part of the team and enjoying yourself among new friends.

There is a great deal that goes into creating a HAODS show as well as the great friendships that come with working together with like minded people towards a common goal.

HAODS cast members – Witches of Eastwick 2017

There are no auditions for membership to the Society. We are all amateurs and we aim at the highest standards of performance and production in our shows. If you are interested in performing in one of our shows, auditions are held for both the principal (main) parts and a simpler group audition if you just want to be in the chorus. These usually take place around four or five months before the show is performed. The whole process is very friendly and informal and takes place in our main rehearsal studio at HAODS House in Hurst Road, Horsham.

If you’re interested in joining us backstage, why not come along to our weekly meet up on a Tuesday and find out what we get up to?

There is a small annual membership fee of £50 to join the Society. Those members who choose to tread the boards also pay a show fee for each show. HAODS has considerable facilities available to its members including rehearsal studios, costume rooms, set and props workshop and our green room (social area). Whether you are a seasoned amateur or have never set a foot on the stage before, you will be most welcome and encouraged by all in our award winning society.
