LADOS present 'Elf, The Musical' at the Grand Theatre, Lancaster - Wednesday 19th - Sunday 23rd January 2022

Welcome to LADOS Online

On behalf of Lancaster Amateur Dramatic & Operatic Society we bid you a warm welcome to our 'foyer' on the Internet. Read all about our long history, our past productions and our latest endeavours.

We are now planning to head 'up North', way up North to the North Pole to bring Elf, The Musical to the Grand Theatre, Lancaster, from Wednesday 19th - Sunday 23rd January 2022! Evening performances Wednesday to Saturday and Matinees on the Saturday and Sunday.

We also have some lost time to make up for having been unable to stage productions in 2020 and 2021. So in that spirit we also bring you Calendar Girls: The Musical from Tuesday 10th - Saturday 14th May 2022. Based on the play and the motion picture "Calendar Girls", this musical version is written by Gary Barlow and Tim Firth.

Further details to be confirmed. Auditions/Rehearsals will start in the Summer.

We can't wait to see you all - on stage, back stage, in the audience - eventually!

Roger first appeared on the LADOS stage as Diesel in our 1987 production of West Side Story, directing Chess in 2004 and appearing in every production up to his final curtain call in Hot Mikado in 2006.

Arguably his most notable role was that of Jesus of Nazareth in our 1996 production of Jesus Christ Superstar at the Lancaster Grand which he reprised for our 2002 production at the Lancaster Priory.

After 20 show-stopping years with LADOS Roger sadly died in 2007 from Melanoma.
