Welcome to LAOS

Leeds Amateur Operatic Society is a leading musical theatre company with a reputation for spectacular and professional productions.

Our Shows

Leeds Amateur Operatic Society (LAOS) is a well established and professional operatic society who perform shows at Leeds’s very own beautiful grade 1 theatre, The Leeds Grand Theatre and Opera House.

Casting has now taken place for our production if  My Fair Lady and all the main principal roles have been allocated.  Also we have reached our quota for the number of chorus we can accommodate so we unfortunately have had to close to any new applications.

My Fair Lady Poster



As the company is now full , our next new members auditions will be held in 2020, after our production of My Fair Lady.  If you are interested in auditioning to become a member please complete the application form and you will be contacted nearer the time to offer you an audition date and time.
