About Us

We’re a dynamic central London theatre company who perform exciting and entertaining musical theatre. Our members come from a broad range of backgrounds and abilities, and we’re committed to developing their potential.

We seek to produce the very best theatre as recognised by the NODA (National Operatic and Dramatic Association) London area, most recently winning the 2014 Flame Award for Dramatic Excellence for our production of Oklahoma!

Edward Steward
Ed StewardA lawyer by profession, Ed made his first appearance on stage with the society as the aptly named Royal Steward in Snow White.

He was the co-director and musical director of Hair and returned to the stage as Congressman Lockwood in On the Twentieth Century. He was also musical director of our 2017 pantomime, Camelot.

John Winters
John has been around theatre for much of his life, mostly offstage in various technical jobs, but also seen in such fabulous roles as Dame Dobb and The Mayor of Munchkin City.

With Geoids, he’s done productions where the whole thing was turned up to eleven, and had a lot of
fun as Production Designer for My Fair Lady and Sunset Boulevard and as Master Carpenter for On the Twentieth Century.

Outside of Geoids he got distracted for nine years trying to get a PhD in physics, before settling on
something more suitable as a Draughtsperson and Construction Designer at the National Theatre.
