Welcome to our website!

Marsden Parish Church Amateur Operatic and Dramatic Society  has been performing plays and musicals since 1926 when the society was first founded to raise funds to build the Parochial Hall.

In the years since the first production of The Mikado we have entertained audiences with shows as diverse as The Desert Song to The Full Monty and have a reputation for putting on excellent shows.

New members are always welcome, if you feel that you could help with our productions either on stage or back stage then please contact us using the contact tab on this site.

If any members, past or present have any pictures of productions that you’d like us to post on this website please let us know and we’ll do our best to get them up on the site.

A word from our chairman

In a time where many aAlmateur societies seem to be struggling we are very fortunate to have a great base in the Parochial Hall and a wonderful team of performing and backstage people – who all put in a great deal of time and effort to ensure that we continue to provide top-quality entertainment for our audiences.


We had a terrific response to our recent production of ‘The Rise and Fall of Little Voice’, it was a very challenging production but the cast and production team rose to the challenge and put together a wonderful show. Next in our calendar is the return of our popular ‘Summer Variety Show’ produced by Vivienne Payne. This is always popular with audiences and, as seating is cabaret style with tables and a licensed bar, seats are limited so make sure you book early. The show is on from the 27th to 30th of July. On the 24th to 29thof October  it’s our musical offering of ‘Annie’ when we welcome back Dawn Sloman as producer.

If you enjoy our shows and would like to get involved with the society then we are always keen to welcome new members! For further information just go to the ‘Contact Us’ page on this website and drop us an email, we look forward to hearing from you.

Alan Muskett – Chairman
