OPERA singers will perform at a Marlow church on Saturday to give audiences a taster of their full concert later this year.

Members of the Marlow Amateur Operatic Society (MAOS) will be putting on a "Night of Musical Theatre" at the United Reformed Church in Oxford Road.

They will be performing songs from their opera, "Ruddigore", by Gilbert and Sullivan, which will be fully showcased in three days of performance at the beginning of March.

MAOS chairman Richard Brooman said: "It's going to be great fun with tunes from a number of shows.

"We bring entertainment to members of the community, the thing the customer wants to hear, and have a lot of fun doing it."

Additionally to the "Ruddigore" numbers, Henley Amateur Operatic and Drama Society are also going to perform songs from their concert, "West Side Story", and spectators will also get the chance to see Bourne End Operatic Society singing tunes from "South Pacific".

Mr Brooman said that MAOS was open to members of the public who wanted to take part in the future: "It's not a place where you have to have significant musical training.

"A lot of our members can't read music. It's for people who want to express themselves but may not be musically trained."
