Amelies Boutique

Bonjour mes amis,

It’s that time again – time to set aside Tuesday evenings to rehearse for our upcoming show – Amelies Boutique! We will begin rehearsing at 7:30 in the upper meeting room in Chinnor Village Hall at 7:30 every Tuesday, starting on 6th March and culminating in 2 performances on 15/16th June 2018.  If you would like to take part, please come along on the first night and we’ll give you a brief idea of what the show is about and we’ll also do some singing!  If you can’t make the first night, but would still like to take part, please let us know, either via the contact page on this website or by searching for Chinnor Musical Theatre on Facebook and leaving us a message. Alternatively, you can send an email to committee@chinnormusicaltheatre.org.uk – for this show we welcome adults of all abilities. We also need help backstage and front of house – as it’s not just the performers who get to have all the fun! If you are lucky enough to get a singing or speaking role there will no doubt be additional rehearsals on some Thursday evenings, so let us know if you are interested in taking a more active role on stage. We have performed this show before but as it is a CMT show we will be able to change it up a bit to suit the characters of the cast, although the story will pretty much remain the same. We are always on the lookout for more men, so if you know someone who might be interested, please bring them along – we don’t bite!

So whether you’re a complete newbie or a seasoned pro we look forward to meeting you!

Hi, my name is Kim and I first joined CMT for 'Anything Goes' in 1999. Since then I've learned many more things than I ever did at school! I've co-written and co-directed 'When We Were Young', 'Tribute' and 'All Kinds of Everything', and been assistant director for 'Cowardy Custard', I've performed in countless shows and painted more scenery than I care to mention. I've sewn what seems like miles of curtaining, mended an elephants trunk (!) made 22 gymslips and 2 Beefeater costumes for stilt-walkers, made props galore and designed scenery for many shows. I've also helped out with scenery painting for other theatre groups as well. I've recently written a musical show which I'm hoping to showcase with CMT at some point. I also won a NODA (National Operatic and Dramatic Association) award for the Best Programme with 'Hello Dolly' and runner-up for 'Oklahoma'. I'd say if you're looking for something different to do with your evenings rather than watch TV, amateur theatre is a marvellous place to do it. Take the plunge, you'll meet lots of new friends and learn new skills. And you don't need to be on the stage to enjoy yourself, there's plenty of other things to do. Come on, join us today!
