• If you’re a budding actor, actress, singer or dancer we’d love to meet you. As well as looking for members to perform on stage, CODS is always looking for help backstage and front of house and we are keen to encourage any potential scenic artists, set designers, lighting designers, sound board operators and general backstage workers for set construction and painting, as well as wardrobe and make-up enthusiasts.

    It’s not all just about the performance. Members of the CODS’  Community also enjoy an active social life, including parties, treasure hunts, camping trips, barbecues and trips to shows.

    CODS’ Rehearsals

    Rehearsals for our main productions are generally held at Christ Church Hall, Malvern Road, Cheltenham on Mondays at 7.30.p.m and Thursdays at 8.00 p.m. Choir Rehearsals take place on a Tuesday at Swindon Village Primary School starting at 7.30pm. For further details, please visit our Choir Page.

    Potential new members are always welcome – just pop along and see what we are all about.

    Concessional Membership for ‘senior citizens’  costs £20 (£15 for Standing Order) and Junior Membership for under 16s is £10 (payable on a per show basis).
