Welcome to the website of the Overton Dramatic Society (or "ODS")! We are a small, friendly society based in Overton, in Hampshire, UK. We've produced at least two shows per year since 1980.
The last 18 months have been challenging for us, as they have for everyone. As a very social society, dedicated to putting on public performances and socials, our 40th year as a society in 2020 was a difficult one. It's the first year in our history that we were unable to stage at least two shows per year - in fact, 2020 saw both shows cancelled due to the pandemic.
In May 2021 we were delighted to present a Zoom-based performance on three consecutive nights - the fun and funny "Bad Auditions On Camera", which was well received by the 150+ families and individuals who joined us online.
Our next show is the rescheduled pantomime, originally planned for Nov 2020... We'll soon be starting auditions and rehearsals for "Adrian - The Panto", a great modern script which draws together a wider variety of familiar panto characters in a romp through pantoland!
Find us on Facebook for more up-to-date info.
The Society is a community and we are always thinking of ways to support each other and ensure our members, friends and family are able to interact and stay in touch in these unusual times.
We have a public Facebook page - "Like" us on Facebook to keep up with goings on. There is also a private Facebook group for current and previous members and friends of the Society to engage with each other. If you'd like to take part, go to ODS Members (link) and ask to join.
