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.
