Folkestone-Hythe Operatic & Dramatic Society

Founded back in 1902, FHODS is one of the country’s oldest amateur dramatic companies.

Based at The Tower Theatre in Folkestone, which is owned and operated by FHODS, the society presents a range of amateur productions – around seven each year – including dramas, comedies, musicals and, of course, our ever-popular pantomime.

Our productions are directed and produced by keen enthusiasts who dedicate a huge amount of time to these projects, with a cast of equally committed amateur performers.  A large proportion of the technical crew and front-of-house personnel are also volunteers and they play a huge part in enabling us to give our audiences a great theatre experience.

We welcome new members to the society and anyone can get involved both on and off-stage, and front of house.  Membership details, including application form and current rates can be found here.
