We rehearse at Charlton House in South East London and perform
at The Bob Hope Theatre in Eltham and at other venues in and around Eltham and

A little history ...
1937, the Society (Woolwich Polytechnic Operatic Society) began rehearsals for
its show "The Gondoliers", which was staged in 1938 at the Polytechnic
Hall in Woolwich. During the war years it was difficult to produce a show, but
the Society did manage to perform "The Mikado" in 1940, "Patience"
in 1943, followed by "Iolanthe" in 1945. In 1946 when "Pirates
of the Penzance" was performed, the show was seen by over 4,000 people! Obviously,
Gilbert & Sullivan was as popular then as it is now. Because of our roots
with G&S, we felt it appropriate to celebrate our Diamond Jubilee year in
1997 with a firm favourite, "Princess Ida". When Woolwich Polytechnic
became Thames Polytechnic, our name changed - hence the T(E)POS acronym! TEPOS
Music Box was formed (from Thames Operatics Society) in 2007.
we have performed "Me and My Girl", "Carousel",
"The Baker's Wife" and "Blitz!". Use
