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 - they have earned the Society a reputation for shows of a very high calibre.
little shop of horrors
The recent announcement by the Swiss authorities concerning the necessary distancing measures in theatres, for both audience and performers, has rendered Little Shop of Horrors impossible in the short term. We have therefore taken the decision, with the safety of our audience and our cast and crew foremost in our minds, to move the production dates to February 2021. The new performance dates will be between 25 February and 7 March – exact dates and times to be announced shortly!

Bid a final farewell to the composer of the Goodbye Song
Nic Sommer, the composer of our iconic Goodbye Song - it has rung down the curtain on our pantomimes for decades, much to the audience's delight - passed away in March 2020. Go to our tributes page if you'd like to share a memory of Nic's life on and backstage with GAOS.
Exercise your hidden talents!
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're an anglophone group, but welcome all nationalities.
