Welcome to the Little Theatre

Show Montage

For over a Century Wells Operatic Society have been entertaining audiences both Young and old, with our 'professional' (amateur) stage productions. Why not come along and see why we have maintained such a loyal audience.

A Little Pit Bigger

Wells Little Theatre has started a fundraising campaign for theatre renovations beginning with our A Little Pit Bigger project to develop our orchestra pit into something musicians can actually use! To do this we have set up a fundraising website on Indiegogo so those who wish to support us with their generosity can donate - you can also find out details of the project there and see how we are getting on and the perks of supporting us! We are not just sitting back and hoping money will appear (though it would be nice!) - the society is putting on a host of events designed to raise money which will be publicised on this website, facebook and Twitter. So please follow us and help us provide quality entertainment and a valuable community resource for Wells and the surrounding area and hopefully enjoy the events we put on as well!

Spend, Spend, Spend

Spend Spend Spend is a musical with a book and lyrics by Steve Brown and Justin Greene and music by Brown.
In 1961, Yorkshire housewife Viv Nicholson won £152,319 in the football pools. When a reporter asked her what she planned to do with her new fortune, she replied, "I'm going to spend, spend, spend!", which is exactly what she did. Her rags-to-riches-to-rags-again story takes her through five husbands, expensive sports cars, fur coats, and jewelry, a battle with alcohol, and bankruptcy as, unable to cope with her new-found wealth and fame, she rapidly spirals downward.

This show contains some adult material

Beau Stratagem

The Bristol Old Vic Theatre School in conjunction with Wells Operatic Society presents George Farquhar's ‘Beau Stratagem’, directed by Paul Clarkson.

"Since a woman must wear chains, I would have the pleasure of hearing 'em rattle a little."

Rakes, Lovers, Desperate Housewives, Herbal Healers and Horse Thieves...
The Lichfield stagecoach is a comin' on over the hill, laden with gallants and garters intent on fine females and their even finer fortunes.
But ar they prepared for cross dressing Irish priests, a band of honourable highwaymen, lardy landlords, scheming servants and aimless alliteration?
The stage is set for one of the finest Restoration Comedies of the age. Farquhar knits together a panoply of stock and 'not so stock' characters, weaving plots and sub plots in an 18th Century One Man Two Governors, where not all is as it seams and the country folk of Lichfield are not quite as dumb as we think.
Well not quite...

Opens on Thursday, 25 June 2015 and closes on Thursday, 25 June 2015.
