Welcome

HLOS is a not-for-profit, amateur musical theatre society that specialises in staging musicals. We have been performing in Halifax since 1907 with membership open to those aged 16+. The group is run by volunteers who share a passion for musical theatre - both on and off stage! Shows are produced regularly each year along with a variety of social events for our membership.
