In 1961 a small group of teachers formed the St Martin’s Operatic and Dramatic Society, based at St Martin’s Boys School Hutton.

With an initial fund of two shillings and sixpence (around 12½p) they set out to perform South Pacific in a school hall on the 1th March 1962.

Many pupils from St Martin’s Girls’ and Boys’ school became involved and the society was changed to Shenfield Operatic Society

We currently perform one large show a year at The Queen’s Theatre Hornchuch and a second smaller show or concert at a local venue - Brentwood Theatre or Blackmore Village Hall
