Tiverton Junior Operatic Club was formed in 1978 by members of TAOS to encourage youngsters to enjoy music and drama.
TJOC meets on Thursdays. There is an annual subscription of £40 to belong to the club, however this is only payable if you take part in the major musical production in February.
Sadly, subscriptions do not cover the production costs of the annual show, but they do help towards other costs. Our annual production requires substantial funding which we raise in various ways ... including sponsors and local businesses advertising in the souvenir show programme, applying for youth grants and a programme of relentless fund-raising!! We do, however, strive to make the show try and cover itself through ticket sales ... a task which has become increasingly more difficult in latter years!
TJOC committee consists of 14 elected members, including 10 adults and 4 junior members over the age of 14. The club still adheres to its original constitution allowing young people to move on and enjoy the artistic and cultural opportunities within the town.
TJOC meet every Thursday ... although on the run up to the main production in February, or the Summer Concert season, Sundays are also needed to perfect the performance.
