Welcome to Congleton Musical Theatre's Website
About Congleton Musical Theatre
The society was formed in 1932 and until 2009 was known as Congleton Amateur Operatic Society.
In 2009, we set about modernizing and updating the society to face the challenges of modern day amateur musical theatre. Our new name, Congleton Musical Theatre, better describes our objectives and reflects the shows that are available to perform and appeal to the audiences of today.
Nine awards in eight years!
We perform once per year by starting rehearsals in May and putting on the show in October of that year.
Our main company rehearsal nights are Monday and Thursday evenings , extras being added if required throughout the season.
We accept people for the stage who are over 16 years of age on successfully passing a singing audition but will accept trained dancers who can also sing. Occasionally we will take on children below 16 for special shows, the last 3 shows at Congleton have included a wide cast of children who are auditioned separately to the Adults. If you are interested though and would like to discuss the audition side of the Society please do speak to one of our members as they can explain more about this process. Its not as scary as it sounds !
