The home of Musicals & Drama for Croydon, CODA (Croydon Operatic and Dramatic Association) stages a variety of exciting musical and drama productions at the Ashcroft Theatre and various other venues in and around Croydon & Sutton each year.
Not only are we a community group that produces professional quality shows and events, we are also a very sociable
group with many social events throughout the year. We welcome individuals from all walks of life with a desire to not just tread the boards, but also those that wish to work backstage and as
part of our production teams. If you are looking to join one of the best amateur dramatic groups in the area, then look no further. CODA offers varied roles and responsibilities both on
and off stage and our members always welcome newcomers and offer training in all aspects of theatrical production.
Our musical productions have included highly acclaimed performances of Rodgers and Hammerstein's Oklahoma!, Stephen Sondheim's Sweeny Todd, Gershwin's Crazy For You, Seussical, Chess, Disney's Beauty & The Beast, FAME The Musical, and West Side Story just to name a few.
Our dramatic play productions such as Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None, Michael Frayn's hit comedy Noises Off, Charles Webb's adaptation of The Graduate and Mike Leigh's Abigail's Party have also met with high praise from both critics and audiences alike.
As well as entertaining audiences with our musicals and dramas, we also provide a range of entertainment for private and corporate events under our CODA4Hire. We offer cabaret performances, murder mystery events, Old Time Music Hall shows and much, much more.
So, come see why CODA has built a fantastic reputation for top quality productions in and around Croydon for over 70 years!
