Grease is still the word!

I loved this show. 9 week season only Friday and Saturday nights

My late mother played Mrs Lynch in that show

Love grease as a show! I played Marty at Riverlea-so much fun and would be awesome to see it staged again!!!

The choices in beers has improved dramatically!

What is a crackling wine?!

From that show.

This was before the move

Grease is the word!

A Hamilton Operatic Society membership makes a great gift. With memberships starting from just $20 per year its easy, and there are many options to choose from - all with differing levels of benefits.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

We support you and will be back watching your shows and cheering you on.

Great display of communication, empathy for your members, your patrons and those who support you. Good on you HOS, you've had your battles of recent times and you're still doing the best for all concerned. Kia Kaha HOS.

Such sad news but we really hope to see the wonderful CAST of Chicago smash this production out next year!! Please ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™

Tara Given, I guess no clashes with your uni performance after all. Still sad though.
