Leamington and Warwick Musical Society
Best Production Winners 2012, NODA West Midlands District 5
for Thoroughly Modern Millie
Founded in 1921, Leamington and Warwick Operatic Society
specialised for many years in presenting early English
operettas and the works of Gilbert & Sullivan.
By the start of the 1960s, with shows by the likes of
Irving Berlin and Rodgers & Hammerstein becoming
available for amateur companies to perform, and
audiences being thrilled by the new Broadway musicals,
there came a need for the Society to evolve. As the
early shows went out of fashion and the new ones came
in, the audiences began to change.
Over the past forty years the Society has staged an
increasingly wide variety of musical shows, and it
became apparent that the label ‘Operatic
Society’ did not reflect the type of shows being
staged. It was therefore proposed at the
Society’s 2002 AGM, and agreed at the 2003 AGM,
that its name be changed to the Leamington & Warwick
Our aim is still to bring you, our audience, the high
standard of first class musical shows for which we have
become renowned throughout the area.
