Pershore Operatic & Dramatic Society, know affectionately as PODS, was founded in January 1989 and is now in its fourth decade of entertaining local audiences with musicals, pantomimes and variety performances of professional quality to suit all ages and tastes.

Staging two shows at Number 8 each year PODS have been raising the roof with laughter, and leaving audiences to journey home happily whistling or humming their favourite tune. PODS have brought some of the most popular shows in the world to the people of Pershore and friends beyond, experimented with drama, staged established shows and their own original productions, and wooed youngsters with panto – “Oh yes we have!” With an impressive track record and a large following of supporters the society’s reputation goes from strength to strength. The society stands proud of its achievements.

The society boasts experts in costume, lighting, sound, stage craft and, of course, song and dance, with a team of lively and creative performers. Encouragement is also given to youngsters to perform or take an active role in technical, behind-the-scenes roles.

Look out for details of PODS’ upcoming shows at Number 8.
