Join Us

Enjoy singing, dancing, acting? Why not join us? Like making things, or organising things? Why not help back stage? We all have a lot of fun putting a show together as a group and you could be part of it.

Whether you would like to appear on stage or help behind the scenes we would equally like to hear from you: contact us to find out more. 

We rehearse in Crawley mainly on Monday and Thursday evenings throughout the year.


Child Protection

In many of our shows we have children who perform alongside the adult cast. We see them as an important part of our cast and therefore believe fully in protecting their personal welfare and health and safety.

In accordance with NSPCC guidelines we have a policy which ensures that they are our priority. View it here

who we are

Who We Are

COS Musical Theatre (formerly known as Crawley Operatic Society) is an amateur theatre group based in Crawley, West Sussex who have an enviable reputation for producing Musicals that are anything but ‘amateur’ in quality. We stage two major musical shows each year in April and October, in the magnificent Hawth theatre in Crawley. 

We rehearse in our own rehearsal Hut and at Broadfield Community Centre, Crawley. Our main rehearsal nights are Monday and Thursday. If you feel you would like to join us, do get in contact.
