Pershore Operatic and Dramatic Society, known affectionately as ‘PODS’ are Pershore’s resident musical theatre company based at Number 8. For two decades now PODS have been raising the roof with laughter, promoting tears and leaving audiences to journey home happily whistling or humming their favourite tune. Having successfully brought a large number of the most popular shows in the world to the people of Pershore and friends beyond; experimented with drama; and wooed youngsters with panto – “Oh yes we have!” – the society stands proud of its achievements. With a large following of supporters ensuring a sell-outs for most shows the society’s reputation goes from strength to strength.

Expertise has been gained and the society now boasts experts in costume, lighting, sound, stage craft and, of course, song and dance from a team of lively and creative performers, who give a performance of a lifetime, every time. Encouragement is also given to youngsters to perform or take an active role in the technical, behind-the-scenes roles, as a result PODS now have many of them going to drama school and one young technician who regularly bathes the London stage with his lighting skills.

There are many roles in the society and PODS welcome new blood to take part either onstage or behind the scenes.
