Registered Charity No. 274648

In 1975 Trowbridge Amateur Operatic Society was formed, and since then has presented more than 70 shows.  Trowbridge Youth Theatre (TYT) was formed in 2007 as an opportunity for those between 11-24 to perform on stage.  In 2012 it was decided to update the society’s name to TAOS Musical Theatre to more accurately reflect the shows performed.

With an emphasis on fun, team work and a love for all things musical, TAOS Musical Theatre has grown into the talented, passionate and friendly society that it is today.

The Society normally produces two musical shows per year in May and November, usually at the Arc Theatre, Trowbridge, with other concerts and showcases.

On stage, behind the scenes or front of house, we are always keen to welcome new members.  If you would like to be involved please get in touch, we’d love to hear from you or if you just wish to enjoy our performances, tickets can be bought from the Current Production page.

The main weekly rehearsals for chorus and principals take place on Tuesdays at The Arc Theatre, Trowbridge commencing at 7.30 pm and ending at 10.00 pm.  Occasionally other venues may be used for rehearsals.

Once Principals are chosen they will have an additional separate rehearsal each Wednesday.  Two or three Sunday rehearsals may take place during the preparations for each of the two shows.

Detailed schedules will be given to each member from time to time and can also be obtained from this website and the Society’s Facebook group.
