There are very few experiences that can top taking part in a theatrical show, on stage or off!

At HAODS we are a lively, friendly society that is keen to welcome new members. Even if you have never set a foot on the stage before you will soon find yourself part of the team and enjoying yourself among many new friends. See our "Join Us" page for further details.

Young HAODS!

In keeping with HAODS' long term commitment to get young people interested in the performing arts, we have now started a new weekly event open to everyone in the 7-16 age range.

Every Wednesday Evening, between 6:30-7:30 (for ages 7-11) and 7:30-8:30 (for ages 12-16), Mandy Hodge will be at HAODS House, in the Broadbridge Heath Leisure Centre, to offer young people the chance to sing, dance, perform and to learn basic theatrical disciplines.

About Us

Since its creation in 1954 by a handful of enthusiastic amateur players, HAODS' membership has been growing from strength to strength, with members bringing a variety of theatrical experience with them.

The early days were fraught with financial constraints, but nothing could dampen the desire to put on a show. Over the past half-century, the society's now traditional bi-annual productions have not only become more diverse, but challenging too, as each year our experience grows and we attract more talent, both on stage and behind the scenes.

From its early beginnings in the old Capitol Theatre, and temporary locations in successive years, HAODS is now privileged to be able to stage its productions at the town's new Capitol Theatre in liaison with Horsham District Council with whom we have worked for a number of years.

With a growing membership, invaluable support from the Horsham community, together with many local organisations, HAODS continues its quest to provide regular and affordable entertainment. New members are always welcome to join us at HAODS House at the Broadbridge Heath Leisure Centre where our purpose-constructed rehearsal studio, costume wardrobe and stage props workshop are located.
