Following Mike Elden’s well deserved retirement, Worcester Operatic and Dramatic Society are looking to recruit a new rehearsal pianist in readiness for when we hope we are able to resume rehearsals in 2021 once COVID restrictions are finally lifted.

Would you like to be part of an award winning society?
Are you an experienced rehearsal pianist?
Do you enjoy being part of a strong well established team?

Requirements of the role:

  • You will be required to attend weekly rehearsals 7.30pm – 10pm each Wednesday evening, assisting the MD and accompanying the rehearsal.
  • You will also be required to keep track of any changes in the performer’s score during the rehearsal process.
  • The ability to lead the occasional music rehearsal would also be desirable.
  • You will be required to attend additional rehearsals including band call, technical rehearsal, dress rehearsal and 6 performances during show week including a matinee on Saturday.

WODS usually perform two shows a year ( around April and October ) at the Swan Theatre, Worcester.


St Marys Street

If you are interested in this important role or would like more information, please express your interest by sending your email and CV to for WODS committee to consider.

Thank you for your interest
