For over a century Wells Operatic Society have been entertaining audiences both Young and old, with our 'professional' (amateur) stage productions. Why not come along and see why we have maintained such a loyal audience.

Wells Operatic Society can trace its history back more than a century, to 1902 in fact. In those days the Society performed only one show per year, mainly Operas, hence the name. Not having a theatre of its own, the Town Hall was used for its productions. Once the Society restarted after the war, productions were moved to the Regal Cinema, where it continued to present an annual Opera or Operetta. In 1979 the Society became a Limited Company and a registered charity.

In 1979 The Society was offered the option to purchase the freehold of the present building from Mendip District Council. With a lot of hard fund raising by members of the Society and other Wells business people the building became our home and is known to all as 'The Little Theatre'. Previous to that the building was best known as the boy's building of Wells Blue Grammar School... the car park was of course the playground.

The Little Theatre Chamberlain Street, Wells. BA5 2PS.
