Welcome to Sidmouth Arts Club Operatic Society web site.

A bit about us...

We are an amateur group, originally formed in 1922, committed to staging musical theatre in Sidmouth. We exist to provide both entertainment for audiences in the Manor Pavilion Theatre, Sidmouth and as an outlet for the considerable amateur talent that exists in this part of East Devon.
