Allegro was formed in 1977 from the then Barclay Bruntsfield Drama Group. The intention of the company was to bring lesser known or rarely performed musicals to the attention of audiences for amateur theatre in Edinburgh.
The company has come a long way in that time, building up a reputation for producing highly polished performances with high standards of acting, singing and choreography.
However, as a consequence of performing these lesser known shows and the high costs involved in producing stage musicals, following our 2001 production Allegro found itself in the position of being unable to fund another full production.

AOC have been performing and entertaining audiences in Aberdeen and the surrounding area since 1940 with a range of Operettas, Concerts and Musicals. Their 75th birthday was celebrated in 2015 with the UK Amatuer Premiere of “9 to 5” which was brilliant fun for all involved.

Although an "amateur company", AAOC endeavours to present shows to a high standard. To this end our productions are performed in a professional theatre, scenery is hired from professional suppliers as are our costumes. The members of the orchestra are all professional musicians along with the Producer and Musical Director who are both employed by the Company.
In 2003 we celebrated our Centenary by performing Andrew-Lloyd Webber's musical, "Jesus Christ Superstar". As part of our celebrations we held a Royal Gala which was attended by HRH Prince Edward.
The Company's title is something of a misnomer because we no longer present opera or operetta and have for many years concentrated on musicals.
AAOC members get great enjoyment out of appearing in a first class musical vehicle on a...
