Welcoming new members of all ages.

Dereham Theatre Company (formerly Dereham Operatic Society) is a charitable Trust and was formed in 1948 to offer the local community education and enlightenment in amateur dramatic arts. We also encompass our Youth sub-group, DOSYTCo, for children aged 7 - 19 years.


Typically our adult Company stage three productions a year - including a full scale musical in the autumn, a pantomime over the Christmas period and a play in the spring. Meanwhile our Youth Company, DOSYTCo, perform a full company musical over Easter and a Summer Concert. Our Shakespearean motto "Mere folk who give distraction are we" comes from Cole Porter's musical "Kiss Me Kate", which we first performed in 1970, and is based upon one of William Shakespeare's most famous plays "The Taming of the Shrew".


If you are looking to join one of the premier operatic and dramatic societies in Norfolk as either a performer (we actively encourage all whatever your ability or experience, whether you are a singer, an actor, dancer, or just enjoy being on stage), backstage helper, front of house staff or just looking to purchase some tickets for our next show then you need look no further!
