About The Three Towns Operatics

The Society performs an operetta each spring and a concert series in autumn at St. Joseph’s Theatre, Leigh and various venues in and around the local area.

Choir rehearsals take place on Tuesday evenings 8 – 10pm, Tyldesley Methodist Church, Elliott Street, Tyldesley Manchester M29 8JE. Visit membership.

The Society’s annual show alternates between Gilbert & Sullivan and other composers’ operettas firmly retaining the emphasis on quality of music, four-part harmony and high chorus content. The Gipsy Baron, La Belle Helene, Die Fledermaus, Orpheus in the Underworld, The Merry Widow and White Horse Inn have all proved great successes and provided audiences with a greater variety of musical style and performance. The Society aims to produce performances of the highest quality and all shows are accompanied by a professional orchestra.

The society’s Autumn Concerts aim to strike the right note for everyone with a variety of Songs from the Shows, Broadway, Popular and Classical Music.
