Please contact the committee if you would like to become a chaperone and help with this important duty.


At the AGM 2021, the historic subcommittees were revamped into what we are now dubbing ‘working groups’ where we gather a list of people who are able to offer their help in certain areas of organising. The aim is for a ‘Head Of’ to be a liaison for the committee, to contact the group of volunteers at the committee’s request in order to help delegate small jobs and so avoid a few people ending up with a large workload. We understand that not everyone can offer much time, so if we can get as many people as possible to note which areas they would be interested in helping with, this will enable to society to have a pool of people that can be called upon to help where needed. So whether your ability to input is big or small, please take some time to complete the Working Group/Roles interest form and return it to a committee member or the CODS mailbox; you don’t have to be a Member to help! You will also find on the form a place where you can note any interest in society roles, for example, director, choreographer, set design or production manager – and if you are a Member and interested in directing a show, please ask any committee member for a Director’s Interest form.
