Formed in 1900, Taunton Amateur Operatic Society (TAOS) has celebrated over 100 years of consistent musical theatre and as such is one of the oldest operatic societies in existence.

The Society is a consistent winner of both NODA and Rose Bowl awards and is a great stepping-stone for those who wish to join the professional theatre world.

In the words of our local NODA representative, TAOS is “HOT HOT HOT”!
