T.A.O.D.S. Would Like to thank:

Every production we present at the Todmorden Hippodrome is a community effort. The quality on display relies not only on the actors, technical team and front of house of its members but also on the people and businesses who support us in the local area and often go above and beyond a sense of community spirit to help us, asking for nothing in return except a little publicity. We are proud to be associated with them and would ask you to click on the links below to find out what a talented town Todmorden is.
