Murder Most Musical

Our 2019 Summer production is “Murder Most Musical”. Rehearsals are well underway. We don’t want to give away too much at this stage, keep your eyes peeled on social media for regular updates.

We will be performing at Chinnor Village Hall between the 8th-10th August 2019, tickets on sale soon

If you are a fan of the murder mystery you will be in for a treat as we delve into the realms of the golden age of mystery writing. Featuring songs from all genres with our own Chinnor Musical Theatre spin see if you can solve the mystery before our detective does.

Amelie’s Boutique will shortly be open for business!

‘Amelie’s Boutique’ was written several years ago by Stephen Chadd and the late Paul Heafey and we are proud to present it to you in memory of Paul, who sadly died earlier this year. We have somewhat revised the script and additional material has been added by Kim Wilcox, although we have kept as faithful to the original script as possible. It tells the story of an aspiring fashion designer who loses everything she holds dear and has to claw her way up from the worse possible situation to become a successful and renowned business owner. Set in the 1980’s, it has a wealth of comedic characters and some fantastic show tunes. We make a fleeting visit back to Paris of the 1950’s to see how Amelie overcame adversity and found happiness at last in a leafy Oxfordshire village. People from all over bustle to visit the shop and buy the beautiful gowns. But things don’t always go to plan…

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!

TRIBUTE! A musical Extravaganza – 16/17 June 2017

Come along and enjoy our latest show, a fun and frolicsome look at Movie Musicals through the decades.  We have been working so hard to make this show a spectacular event; there is something for everyone.  Some or our all time favourites worked into a  wonderful story of an old man’s memories of his time as a projectionist. There are plenty of solos, duets, trios and stirring chorus numbers – happy,  sad and just plain funny.  We look forward to seeing you at a new venue also; we were unable to hire Chinnor Village Hall, so we have upped sticks and moved a few miles away to the beautiful village of Cuddington.  The Bernard Hall in the heart of the village is a delightful venue with a dedicated stage and fabulous sound and lighting and we are really looking forward to performing there. Tickets are available on the website and are priced at £10 and there will be a licensed bar for your refreshment. Please be advised that parking is very limited, so try to arrive early and, as the village isn’t very big, those that are able should park a little further away from the hall to enable those less agile to park closer.  Of course, you could gather a group of you and share your transport!

We are so excited to perform Tribute, so please come and give us your valued support –  we would love to see you all there!

Definitely not hum-drum!
