COMPANY HISTORY

LEOS Musical Theatre Company was formed in the mid-fifties when several former students of Long Eaton High Street School decided to form an amateur operatic society. They were joined by many other interested individuals to put on their first show, The Mikado, in 1957. Initially, Gilbert and Sullivan shows were chosen, but as musical and operatic theatre has changed over the past 60 years, so have the show choices of LEOS, this has led to us recently changing our name from Long Eaton Operatic Society to LEOS Musical Theatre Company.

Since 1969 our shows have been performed at May Hall, Trent College, and we perform a show every 6 months. In 2015 we celebrated our 60th anniversary.
