The LOpSoc Summer Show is an original production for the society. This takes different formats depending on the intended audience.

Earlier summer shows consisted of a collection of existing numbers, usually Gilbert and Sullivan, set to produce an original story that appeals to children. There is often an interactive section where the children are invited to join the cast on stage and take part in the song while wearing hats or other props. The show was usually performed in local schools.

Recently however, summer shows have been original pieces of writing to be performed as full shows for the public. These have been done with either wholly original music or with existing music set to new lyrics or a mixture of the two.
