Welcome to KAOS!



We are delighted to announce that our show for 2016 will be

the Royal Shakespeare Company's - Wizard of Oz.


A big thank you to everyone who came along to the launch night, workshops and auditions. The final auditions are being held on Wednesday 2nd September and the cast will be notified as soon as possible after that.


It will primarily be an adult production with very few children involved. The RSC version has fantastic 4 piece choral work throughout and there are many solo lines available. It promises to be challenging in all areas least of all with stage, lighting and costumes.

We decided that the best way to follow the success of CATS and Les Mis was to do something completely different. What better way than to extend our target audience and try and inspire Orkney's youngsters with a bright and vibrant show loved by all for many generations.

The show will be directed by Lesley Spence and the musical director is Glenys Hughes.


In 2015 we were delighted to bring you

by arrangement with CAMERON MACKINTOSH

A new production of BOUBLIL AND SCHONBERG'S

This amateur production was licensed by Josef Weinberger Ltd on behalf of

Music Theatre International and CAMERON MACKINTOSH LTD
