The Bendigo Operatic Society was formed in 1952 to offer the community the opportunity to be involved in an active and enthusiastic company where they could enjoy and participate in many facets of theatre. Their first production was The Chocolate Soldier. It was staged at the Capital Theatre and opening night, March 17th 1953, was a huge success. In 1980 the company changed its name to the Bendigo Theatre Company.
Our aim is to provide opportunities for members of the community to enjoy and develop their theatrical talents locally and to gain experience needed to achieve their goals for future careers. We are delighted that many have attained these goals and are now working at a professional level.
