The County Amateur Operatic and Dramatic Society (CAODS), based in Lincoln, is one of Lincolnshire’s leading musical performance charities.

We are delighted to celebrate our 75th Anniversary in 2024!
For 75 years, we have made our home at Lincoln’s beautiful New Theatre Royal, where we have staged some of the world’s most beloved musicals.
Our recent productions of Elf: The Musical and School of Rock in 2023, the first local production of Sondheim's Sweeney Todd in 2022 and EVITA in 2019, showcased the county’s outstanding singing, acting and dancing talent, played to sell-out audiences and were a huge critical success.

We are immensely proud of CAODS’ rich history of producing 80 high quality shows for the people of Lincolnshire and further afield since 1949.

We look forward to welcoming you to one of our next performances.
