NMTC aims to promote arts and culture to the community through musical plays and concerts. We also look to encourage young people to become involved with the performing arts. We have a Concert Group who are able to reach people who normally are not able to attend theatre performances. Each year, NMTC raises funds for charity, our main beneficiary being Northampton Association for the Blind but we have also given to other individual causes.
We put on a very high standard, show each year, bringing musical theatre to Northampton. Each of our shows raises money for a local charity as well, with our main beneficiary being Northampton Association for the Blind, whose premises we use for rehearsal.
NMTC has won awards in several categories for the annual NODA (National Operatic and Dramatic Association) Awards: Our 2010 production, Jesus Christ Superstar, won trophies for: Best Programme, Best Poster, Best Show for Northampton, and Best Show for the East Midlands! We repeated this with our 2012 show, Whistle Down the Wind, winning Best Poster, and Best Show for the East Midlands!
NMTC has an enthusiastic and talented membership but, as we are always eager to maintain our high standards, we constantly try to strengthen our company. If you are interested in acting, singing, dancing or could bring practical stagecraft skills to our productions we would like to hear from you.
New members auditions are held annually in the early Spring and is the only time we audition new members. For new member auditions you need to bring your own sheet music along but a pianist is provided
