Random TMTG Production

The Pirates of Penzance Poster

Thornbury Musical Theatre Group (TMTG) is a long established and successful group with a high reputation in amateur theatre. We perform typically 3 shows a year at the Armstrong Hall, starting with a traditional pantomime in the February half term, followed by a concert or review in June and culminating with a main show at the end of October. We regularly perform one off events at other venues or in publicity activities in order to promote the group. Our main rehearsals are at Tytherington Village Hall on a Wednesday for chorus and Monday for principals.

Despite our serious intentions, we are a friendly and sociable group with a real mixture of ages and skills. Our busy social calendar includes; workshops, BBQs, theatre trips, curry nights and weekends away.

The mix of shows presents ample performing opportunities, but there are many other key areas for our members and supporters to get involved. These include: directing, choreography, dance and musical direction; our technical team of lighting, sound and stage crew; set design and building; creative art and painting; costumes and props; front of house; publicity and marketing.

The group began back in 1968 as the Thornbury Amateur Operatic Society performing Oklahoma and an Old Time Musical at the Castle School. Today we still do traditional shows with guaranteed box office appeal, but also like to tackle new genres and shows only recently released for amateur productions. These include successful shows like Jekyll and Hyde, Jesus Christ Superstar and Disney's Beauty and the Beast.
