They are encouraged to responsibly develop both interpersonal and theatrical skills through tuition plus workshops -culminating in performing musicals or showcases usually annually around Easter and concerts by arrangement.
Having presented high quality youth productions for 31 years, (a South-West record), gained six theatrical awards in the last twelve years and launched many professional careers, NYTC's reputation reflects enthusiasm, energy and excellence!
We are based in Thornbury. Rehearsals usually take place on Saturdays in the Chantry, and major productions are staged in the Armstrong Hall.
The group has been entertaining local audiences for over 31 years with hit shows as diverse as Les Misérables, Summer Holiday and Crazy For You. It is the longest running youth theatre company in the South West and its shows have received many awards, including a Gazette Mask and six Rose Bowls for Amateur Drama and Music.
For the last 5 years we have been taking parties of talented young people to the meetings and social evenings of local groups to present an eclectic programme featuring Songs from the Shows, sketches, dance and Christmas favourites. These concerts give our members additional experience in performance; increase our links with the local community; raise funds to offset the costs of the group’s annual show; and provide our audiences with an opportunity to enjoy the many and varied talents of the Company.

Thornbury Musical Theatre Group
The Thornbury Musical Theatre Group (TMTG) has been entertaining local audiences since March 1968 (when the group was formed under the name of Thornbury Amateur Operatic Society). In 2003 the group was re-named to Thornbury Musical Theatre Group to depict a more modern approach as to what we do.
Since inception, audiences have been treated to many popular musicals, pantomimes, concerts and revues. TMTG performs at the Armstrong Hall in Thornbury, and currently our yearly programme includes a pantomime, a main show and usually a revue/concert which we perform around May/June.
At times, we are also asked to take part in the Thornbury Arts Festival or put on small concerts for various charities or private bookings. Bookings for these can be directed to 01454 853947.
We are a dedicated, close knit group and work very hard, not only in rehearsing for our shows, but also building and painting of the scenery, technical aspects of putting on shows, publicity, box office, props, making and hiring of the costumes and front of house. We also organise social events for our members each year to get everyone together, e.g. barbecue, theatre trips, quiz nights, discos, etc. We have a reasonably large percentage of younger members although we often find ourselves short of people in the 20-35 range - especially men!
Rehearsals take place at the Village Hall in Tytherington on Wednesday nights (and Friday for those with principal parts).
If you yearn to take part in a musical show, pantomime, or sing in a concert, why not put your dreams into action? We always welcome new members. If anyone, aged 18 or over, with a love of singing and aptitude to move those twinkle toes (male or female) wishes to join us, contact us now on 01454 413842.
