HD&OS has been performing plays and musicals in Hertford for 98 years. Since our first production "Of Mice and Men" at the Corn Exchange in 1919 we have captivated our audiences with a wide range of theatre from hard hitting dramas and lavish musicals right through to our annual pantomimes.

HD&OS caters for all ages. There is something in our programme for everyone. We provide opportunities for everyone to get involved too - on and off stage. Those members who are aged between 9 and 17 are well looked after by our Young Idea section.
