          Geneva Amateur Operatic Society 

Welcome to GAOS

The Society was created in 1971 by a small group of musical theatre enthusiasts. Since then it has grown hugely in scope and membership, and today includes a substantial non-Anglophone contingent. Productions are in English and are performed entirely by talented amateurs at some of the city’s most exciting venues. They have earned the Society a reputation for shows of a very high calibre.

little shop of horrors

Our next major production ...

... is a popular musical comedy with fantastic Motown and doo-wop inspired music. If you like building sets, creating effects with light and sound, painting faces or creating costumes, or simply selling drinks at the bar and making new friends, there is a place for you. Details here. Non-native English speakers are welcome.

Little Shop of Horrors will be performed from 2-5 April 2020 at the Théâtre de Marens in Nyon. Watch this space for information on ticket sales!

Exercise your hidden talents and join in the fun!

GAOS is the place for you if you sing, act or dance - or if you can wield a hammer, thread a needle, create a set, paint a face or have any other hidden talents. We produce terrific shows in a spirit of fun and constant learning. We're an anglophone group, but welcome all nationalities.

Focus on creativity, expression and "letting go"

Join us for a fun afternoon of movement- based exercises, games and basic character-building tools. Creativity, expression and “letting go” are frequently blocked for fear of making mistakes. The workshop will provide a safe space where participants can explore their talents without feeling observed or under performance pressure.
