About Us

Truro Amateur Operatic Society Ltd is a society that is made up of a very special group of people of all ages, and from all walks of life, who together excel in anything to do with amateur theatre, whether they are involved either on or off stage.

“It is encouraging to know that we are described by new members and visitors as “a very friendly group” and I have certainly found this to be the case! I joined the society in 1957 and have been lucky enough to have been stage manager for many productions, principle dancer, chorus member, Chairman, Social Chairman and Theatre Manager.”
