Welcome from our President Dan McKirgan
A New Beginning For Callander Amateur Operatic Society
Welcome to the website of Callander Amateur Operatic Society ..... or CAOS as we're affectionately known.
Regular visitors to this site will be aware that we've been in a period of hiatus and that this site has not been updated for a number of months. Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond our control, we had to cancel our planned 2016 production. However, we're up and running again and in this, our 37th year, we are building towards our 2017 production Guys and Dolls.
As many will know our longstanding Musical Director and founder, Ian Milligan retired after the 2015 show, South Pacific. Initially, following Ian's retirement we had managed to identify a new Musical Director, but unfortunately it didn't quite work out - one of the reasons we had to cancel our 2016 show. At this time, although we have not yet appointed a new MD, we are confident of having someone in place when rehearsals start in September 2016.
Last year, we welcomed back, as our Producer, Iain Fraser. Those familiar with our history will know that Iain produced a number of shows for us, including our highly successful 2009 production of Fiddler on the Roof. Iain was going to produce our 2016 show, but when it was cancelled, he hung around and held a number of Theatre Workshops which helped members hone their stage craft.
As mentioned above, our first show in this new era will be "Guys And Dolls". Click here for more details.
