Join us

We welcome and are always seeking new members and helpers. Whether your ambitions are to play leading parts or just to sing in the chorus, we always need new faces - so come along to one of our rehearsals or meet us in the pub to get a feel for who we are and what we do.

We also really need people to help behind the scenes with costumes, set building, front of house and backstage for each show - these roles are perhaps more important than performing for the company. So please get in touch using the details below.

Fun, fun, fun

Rehearsals

We rehearse twice a week from 8pm to 10 or 10:30pm. Rehearsals take place in two different venues, both based in Winchmore Hill.

Tuesdays we are at the United Reformed Church, Compton Road. See map.

Fridays we practice at the Methodist Church on Green Lanes. See map.

Joining details

In order to join the company and take part in musicals, you will need to do a small audition in front of the committee. This is a simple check on basic singing, acting and movement ability.

The following subscriptions are required to join the society.

  • Annual membership - 25
  • Show fee (per show) - 75

(If you have financial difficulties, please speak to us confidentially as we can be flexible ).

The Elods Fees Guide contains all the complicated details.

Other gigs

We sometimes perform concerts for fundraising and charity. We recently performed a selection of show numbers and songs and raised some funds for the company as well as for a worthy charitable cause.

In previous years we have performed in fundraising efforts for childrens hospices.

We have a large repertoire of numbers from all the well known shows and we are available for cabaret or concert performances for social or fund raising events at your club or society.

Our resident Musical Director (M.D.) is Mark Newport who is doing his umpteenth show for ELODS.
