Kapunda Musical Society Inc. is a community-based organization that has been entertaining people, both local and visitors, since 1962. In that time it has provided an artistic outlet for thousands of people.
The KMS Young Peoples Drama Workshop, based at the Chapel Theatre, commenced in 2007 and has an average attendance of 30 children from the age of 6-15 years. This is a great introduction into theatre and the children are involved in major productions and also performing in their own right at the Chapel and at other venues.
The members of the Society get the benefit of mixing with others of various age-groups and can participate in acting, singing, dancing. They can also gain experience in publicity, providing front-of-house services, stage management, set design and construction, and making costumes.
Since its inception the Kapunda Musical Society Inc. has produced many plays and musicals during its time. These include well-known productions such as The Importance of Being Earnest, Gilbert and Sullivan Operas, Salad Days, Oklahoma, Oliver, Guys and Dolls, Fiddler on the Roof, Annie Get Your Gun, Mame, Gypsy and a host of locally written pantomimes
