NODA has a membership of 2500 amateur theatre groups and 3000 individual enthusiasts throughout the UK, staging musicals, operas, plays, concerts and pantomimes in a wide variety of performing venues, ranging from the country’s leading professional theatres to tiny village halls. 

 

There is a broad spectrum of ages involved in amateur theatre nationwide, from an increasing number of youth groups to adult companies which meet the needs of all levels of both performers, whether dramatic or musical, and enthusiasts involved backstage, front of house or in administration. Each production created is a genuine community event.

 

NODA aims:

 

  • To give a shared voice to the amateur theatre sector
  • To help amateur societies and individuals achieve the highest standards of best practice and performance
  • To provide leadership and advice to enable amateur theatre to tackle the challenges and opportunities of the 21st century
