WODS stages 3 musical productions per year including one Youth production (WODYS), at the Swan Theatre Worcester. Occasionally it will also stage a concert or play at its rehearsal rooms.

In 1981 it was proud to have to purchased its own rehearsal rooms where it rehearses mainly on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, in addition to the rehearsals for the Youth section most Saturday and Sunday mornings during school term time.

On 17 February 2017, it celebrated its 125th Anniversary with a special, Dinner and Dance at The White House Hotel Worcester, where it held its very first AGM in 1892. WODS' youth section WODYS celebrated its 35th anniversary in 2017 and more recently staged its 2018 production of "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers".

WODS is now in rehearsal for "Oklahoma!" to be staged in April 2019 to be followed by "Singing in the Rain" in October, 2019 both productions to be staged at the Swan Theatre Worcester. WODYS is in rehearsal for "Back to the 80s" to be staged at the Swan in August.
