Leeds Insurance Dramatic & Operatic Society (LIDOS) are one of the leading amateur theatre groups currently performing in West Yorkshire. We have been providing good-value family entertainment for over 35 years.

We perform three productions a year at the Carriageworks, Millennium Square - our highly acclaimed pantomime in January, a musical in June and a Society choice, which has ranged from plays to cabarets. Having won the Leeds Civic Arts Guild award for best musical twice in recent years for Fiddler on the Roof and The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, we are constantly challenging ourselves to produce the best shows in town..There are many interesting and varied roles within LIDOS some of which include on stage performing, back stage technical crew, press, promotion and publicity, organising social events to designing and making the costumes.We also provide scope to develop into more challenging roles like Director, Choreographer, Musical Director, Wardrobe Coordinator, Stage Manager and various organisational roles on the Committee. The potential is endless.
