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!

A registered charity, originally formed by King’s College London’s Geography and Geology students over 80 years ago, we’re known for entertaining audiences and providing a rewarding experience for our members.


Planning and organisation of the company and its annual programme of events falls to the committee, who are also the trustees of the charity. They meet roughly once a month, developing plans to best to support your society and its growth. If you have any comments or questions for the committee, then please email us at [email protected].

Nichola Welch (Chair)
Nikki WelchNikki was first introduced to Geoids by former committee member and long standing member Claire Peaker, and has never looked back. Her first show was Moby Dick and if she thought that set the bar for how nutty Geoids could be, she was wrong; along came Lust The Musical involving blatant sexual innuendoes and a bed that she managed to break with the help of Chris Watson.

Nikki went on to choreograph Geoids’ The Fix, Oklahoma!, Little Shop of Horrors and 42nd Street.

A Marketing and Events Director by day, this is Nikki’s 8th year on committee and she’s enjoying working with the committee to steer the company to even greater things.
