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!

Hugh MacKay – joining us for our November Show

We have a new pianist – Hugh Mackay!

We are lucky enough to have drafted our old friend Hugh Mackay to help us with the piano rehearsals for our Old Time Music Hall show for November 2016. We have worked with him many times before; he is a very experienced pianist and will make a massive difference to our rehearsals.  Hugh will be joining us on our fihughrst Thursday rehearsal on 27th October.  I’m sure you’ll all join with me in welcoming Hugh back to our family!

Workshops!

Well we’re over the half way stage of our workshops now and I have to say a big ‘Well Done’ to all of you lovely people that have come along and taken part.  For me, it’s reminded me just how much I have missed the whole CMT experience and how I’m so glad we took the risk to try to revive the group again.  We have found some really lovely people, and some very talented new friends, who are coming together to make a great team.  We have covered some really difficult songs and I urge you all to not give up – being part of musical theatre is all about hard work and the more you put into it, the better it becomes.  The amount of progress you have all made is outstanding.  Keep working hard – it will always be worth it in the end.

Don’t forget that we will be back in September for rehearsals for our first end of year show, where we will be adding a lot of extra activities.  There will be a chance for you to take part in as much or as little as you want; not just singing in the chorus, but solos, duets, quartets – any combination you can think of.  There will definitely be some acting, a lot of comedy and some movement, so please let me know to what level you would like to take part.  There are always a lot of songs, so there’ll be plenty of opportunity for you to shine.  If you know of anyone who might be interested in taking part, either on stage or backstage, let me know, I’ll find a place for them somewhere and make them feel welcome.  Let’s get CMT back to the wonderful theatre group it used to be; something you can take pride in.

So after tonight (28th June) we will have two more rehearsals.  I urge you to enjoy them as much as you can, by the last week we will be sounding amazing!  And you’ll definitely miss it once it’s over, I can guarantee it!

All Welcome!

 

Welcome!

Welcome to the shiny new website of CMT.

We have been on a break, but we’re back now and determined to be the best we can be. We’ve got lots in the pipeline, kicking off with a free taster session for all our new members in June. We will be running weekly sessions, on a Tuesday, so you can meet each other and join in with some singing, acting and dancing (or in my case – moving about a bit!).   These will run until the end of the school year in July, when we will have a break – but fear not – we’ll be back again in September to start rehearsals for a show at the end of the year!

Watch this space for dates and times.  We are just confirming our rehearsal space so keep a look out on the website for that too. As we’ve had a break, we’ve decided to do things a little differently than previously, so please bear with us while we sort the kinks out. it’ll be worth the wait. This web site will become an important portal into the wonderful world of musical theatre, so keep checking back to see what is happening.  We can’t wait to welcome you to our friendly group and share all our years of experience with you.

Thanks for visiting!
