Since OpSoc first began in 1963, there have been a huge number of changes within the society which have led to it becoming OpSoc as we know and love it today. In the past year, we have continued to grow as a society, and our many new members, events and memories have shaped us into the OpSoc of 2017.

This year has flown by, and has been one of our busiest ever!

September saw us create a new ‘Freshers’ concert in DUSA, put on a weekend show of ‘Back to the 80s’ and then take part in a rigorous audition and call back process, followed by the start of rehearsals for our entire cast. However, on top of rehearsals for our main show, there have been countless OpSoc related activities and events. From our acoustic concert, to a movie themed pub quiz, to charity carolling and of course our Christmas concert, we had a wonderful first semester.

In January, we hosted our very successful First OpSoc Annual President Ball, an event hugely enjoyed by current members and alumni alike.

Another successful event of the yearly calendar this year was our annual Mono Concert, which this year was themed, “A Night at the Movies.”

Of course, our main event of the year is our March production, and this week we’re performing ‘The Witches of Eastwick’ in the Bonar Hall from 8-11th. This musical tells the tale of Alex, Jane and Sukie, three unhappy divorcees, whose communal wish for “all manner of man in one man” is answered in the form of a strange, charismatic stranger – Daryl Van Horne. Join OpSoc to see how things begin to take a more much more sinister turn in this classic 2000 musical.

Hope to see you all there!

OPSOC blew me away on Wednesday night! The cast is amazing – from the principals, to every single dancer and chorus member. I cannot recommend the show enough. Hurry and get your tickets now!
