NODA – National Operatic & Dramatic Association
The National Operatic and Dramatic Association (NODA) was founded in 1899 and has a membership of 2500 amateur theatre groups and 3000 individual enthusiasts throughout the UK, staging musicals, operas, plays, concerts and pantomimes in a wide variety of performing venues, ranging from the country’s leading professional theatres to village halls.
NODA is divided into eleven regions, each headed by a regional councillor who sits on the national council (the ruling body of the Association), supported by a network of regional representatives. These 180 volunteers are the vital link to the grassroots of the Association, the amateur theatre groups themselves. The Association is administered from its Headquarters in Peterborough, with knowledgeable and friendly staff able to deal with virtually any enquiry relating to amateur theatre.
- To give a shared voice to the amateur theatre sector.
- To help amateur societies and individuals achieve the highest standards of best practice and performance.
- To provide leadership and advice to enable the amateur theatre to tackle the challenges and opportunities of the 21st century.
