How to Join or Help Milborne Port Opera

Milborne Port Opera is run entirely by enthusiastic volunteers with the single aim of producing the best show we can every year.

On Stage

If you love performing, this is the group for you.  We rehearse weekly in Milborne Port on Thursday nights from September to Easter, a very manageable time commitment.

There are no auditions to join the chorus and no need to read music. We welcome people of all backgrounds and levels of experience (including none).  Auditions for soloists and named parts take place around the October half term and then we can start moving.

Easter weekend is when we transform Milborne Port Village Hall into our very own theatre!  We have a technical rehearsal on Easter Monday, the dress rehearsal on the Tuesday, and then welcome our audience for four performances, Wednesday - Saturday.

Behind the Scenes

There is much more to putting on a show than just performing in it.  We are always looking for new members with other skills: directors, producers, musical directors, stage managers, set designers, scenery painters, costumiers, make-up artists, prop makers, front-of-house staff, lighting technicians, musicians to play in the orchestra, advertisers, publicists... the more the merrier!

We all provide our time on a voluntary basis and have a great deal of fun!
