Workington Amateur Operatic Society

Project Overview

Workington Amateur Operatic Society is a registered charity affiliated to the National Operatic and Dramatic Association (NODA).

They received £3,000 towards the staging of ‘Shrek the Musical’, which took place in October 2022 and achieved five sold out performances at the Carnegie Theatre.


“The Workington Amature Operatics Society would like to say a huge thank you to the Allerdale GDF Community Partnership for supporting our recent production of Shrek the Musical at the Carnegie Theatre. The production received overwhelming support from the local community and was a great success, with many very young children experiencing live theatre for the first time.”

“Access to The Arts enriches the lives of those who get to experience it and this grant from the Community Investment Fund has helped us make high-quality theatre accessible to more people in our community. It was a great success and heart-warming to see the audience laughing and singing along to this musical take on a much loved family classic.”
