Professional support for amateur theatre:
The National Operatic and Dramatic Association (NODA) was founded in 1899 ‘to protect and advance the interests of operatic and dramatic art and of societies engaged therein’. They have a membership of over 2,500 society members and 2,500 individual enthusiasts performing in the fullest range of venues and staging musical, operas, plays, concerts and pantomimes.
NODA is divided into eleven areas. Each of NODA’s 11 regions is headed by a councillor who sits on the ruling body of the Association (The National Council). In turn they are supported by a network of regional representatives and committee members who provide a vital link to the grass roots of the association; NODA is administered from headquarters in Peterborough by a knowledgeable and friendly staff.
