Hello and welcome to the website of Monklands Light Opera and MLO Youth, better known as MLO. Founded in 1973 we have become well established in performing concerts and musicals within North Lanarkshire.
In November 2016 MLO opened its doors to MLO Youth, a sub group of MLO open to all young people from Primary 5 to S4. We provide a place for young people with an interest in acting, singing and dancing to meet and make friends and have fun at the same time! Click here to find out more information about MLO Youth.
Please have a look around and find out a bit more about what we do, who we are and how you can join us! Whether it's centre stage or as part of our behind the scenes team there is a place for everyone here at MLO!
Carrie & Jamie Jump for MLO
On Saturday 12th May, MLO Youth coach and crew came together as Carrie Orr and Jamie Wilson took on a 160ft bungee jump at Glasgow’s Riverside Museum to raise funds for Monklands Light Opera.
Newest Life Member
Alan Leslie is being honoured for his service to MLO over many years.
He first joined Airdrie Academy Former Pupils, as MLO was known then, in 1979 and the show was The Gypsy Princess and in the years since he has appeared in many of the clubs productions including Gilbert and Sullivan, Oklahoma, Half a Sixpence....too many to mention. His performances as Bill in Me and My Girl, Seymour in Little Shop of Horrors and supporting roles in Summer Holiday, Oklahoma, Brigadoon and many more proved he was a real asset to the club.
He has been a son, husband, boyfriend etc to many and in The last 23 years he has always been there to support, guide and nurture new talent.
For all the work he has done on stage he has also given service to the club in many other ways by serving on committee several times and most notably as President in our 25th anniversary year, he has been stage crew, front of house and Front of House Manager.
He has recently taken a break from being on stage due to other commitments but he is still there for MLO and maybe we might entice him back on stage one year!
So congratulations to Mr Alan J. Leslie who is now a Life Member of Monklands Light Opera!!!
