PROUD members of a Kidderminster opera group will wrap up a year of centenary celebrations with a show-stopping concert next week.

Kidderminster Operatic and Dramatic Society (KODS) will revisit some of its previous performances during its 100 year history for the performance on November 19.

Starting back in 1916 KODS staged their first ever performance, Gilbert and Sullivan’s ‘Patience’ and ince then, the society has entertained the Wyre Forest public performing musicals, plays and concerts.

The concert will be held at St Georges Church and will showcase songs from a wide range of musicals that have been performed by the group in the past.

Ranging from their early history of Gilbert and Sullivan operettas, to familiar favourites from the likes of Rodgers and Hammerstein and Cole Porter.

Musical Director, Sue Doran said: "Keith Rowland and I have been drawing on a rich history of musicals scanning the last 100 years to put a programme together.

“The evening will be a theatrical event featuring many of the best known songs and stories from the society's past.”

Tickets for the concert are £7 for adults, £5 for 10-16 and free for under 10’s and they can be purchased for the concert by calling 01562 638864.
