Simon Kelly -


York Light Opera Society was formed in 1953 to perform the challenging new musicals of the time. In 2003 we became York Light Opera Company Limited for financial reasons, although we remain an amateur group. Throughout our history we have built an excellent reputation for producing shows to a professional standard; and the Company takes great pride in continuing its tradition of bringing new musicals to York as well as breathing new life into old favourites.

We generally perform two shows a year, the winter show which we are fortunate to perform at York Theatre Royal, and the summer production at one of the other venues in York. For each show we engage a professional producer/choreographer and musical director. The Company has an active social calendar and holds an Annual Dinner, Christmas Social and theatre trips throughout the year.
