Welcome to WMOS

A message from our President - Iain Steel

Always friendly and welcoming Winchester Musicals & Opera Society has been entertaining Hampshire audiences since 1913.


We enjoy performing a full range of musicals, operetta and light opera in the beautiful Edwardian setting of The Theatre Royal Winchester, enhanced by a Musical Director and live orchestra.


WMOS is an inclusive membership society, whether you wish to be on the stage in the limelight or backstage helping with the vital elements of set design/construction, props, lighting, sound, social media/marketing, makeup, costumes or programme design – everyone has an important role to play to ensure a show is a success (both artistically and financially).

I am also pleased to say that it is not all work – WMOS has a strong and vibrant Social and Charitable side including Barn Dances, Quizzes, Country walks with a good pub at the end, carol singing for the elderly... and the list goes on, including helping during Winchester's  Hat Fair and Woolly Hat Fair.


Over the years our shows have played to critical success receiving numerous NODA accolades and Southern Daily Echo ‘Curtain Call’ wins and nominations.


So, welcome to our website – why not take a look around, see what show we have coming up – why not consider joining us and being part of this creative, exciting and vibrant Society? 

Iain Steel
