York Light Opera Company was formed in 1953 and we have performed at the Joseph Rowntree Theatre every year since 1957. Our very first show at the Joseph Rowntree Theatre was the Richard Tauber musical Old Chelsea.
We generally perform at least two shows a year. The company takes great pride in continuing its tradition of bringing brand-new musicals to York audiences as well as breathing new life into old favourites.
We are looking for new people to join our volunteer team. If you have an interest in theatre, just want to meet people or want to volunteer in your local community, please do get in touch.
You'll be surprised how much is going on - live music, films, talks, plays and of course musicals
Take a look now, there's so much to choose from!
