How time flies!

AMTG are on a well-deserved break from rehearsals following the very well received production of My Fair Lady. We’re always grateful to our lovely audiences for supporting us, and this year, as always, we have received high praise and great reviews for our efforts.

When you consider most of our Members are either in full time work or education, it is wonderful to hear that our show was “well worthy of the professional stage”, that “you can’t see a better show in the West End”, and “everybody in the company is so talented – it is hard to believe they’re not all professionals”. It is difficult not to feel very proud of ourselves, and our fabulous production duo Alan Hutchinson and David McKnight!

We are also very proud of our Junior Members, and many of our audiences remarked that they are so engaging on-stage, and clearly love being a part of an adult theatre group. It is fair to say there are not many scripts which involve youngsters, but Alan and David manage to weave them all into the plot in such a way that it is hard not to believe their parts were written by the composers.

Many of our Juniors are involved in other groups, and we are especially pleased to announce that Maisie Axton, Liv Carroll-Walsh and Evie Midgley are all involved in productions of Joseph and his Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat at Kilworth House in the Summer and Nottingham’s Theatre Royal in the Autumn. Eden Wedgbrow has a part in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang at the newly refurbished Haymarket Theatre in Leicester in September and Adam Bailey is shortly to be involved in Just So at the Snibston Century Theatre. We wish them all well, and look forward to having them back with us for our April 2019 production of Pirates of Penzance – we think all our Juniors will make smashing pirates!

Don’t forget we would love to hear from you too if you would like to be a part of this very friendly and inclusive theatre group – send an email to [email protected] if you think you would like to join us. You won’t be sorry!
