Welcome to the Ipswich Operatic & Dramatic Society’s website. Celebrating over 60 years of performing in Ipswich and the surrounding areas.
Here you can learn about who we are, what we do, and why we do it as well. This website is here to show you our past successes and what we have planned for the future. We work within the community to provide top West End standard shows, but for the local community. Working closely with local theatres such as the Ipswich Regent, The Spa Pavilion, New Wolsey Theatre and others, we create an atmosphere of enclosure, love, and fun whilst disciplining ourselves in the magical world of Theatre.
"With no shortage of ability and experience in the supporting cast and a chorus in excellent voice, IODs cements its reputation for quality as it once again meets its own high performance standards."
James Marston – Ipswich Star 2015 – Sunset Boulevard

"Mike Wren and did a brilliant job as Musical Director and the singing was to their normal high standard. This was Mark Connell’s first time choreographing for IODS and he did a great job. The whole cast certainly looked to be enjoying themselves."
