Oswestry Musical Theatre Company are planning a joint fundraising event with the Royal British Legion, to mark 100 years since WW1.
The concert will be on 2nd September 2018 at The Marches School, from 3–6pm (approximately).
We are looking for as many singers as possible to join the concert; current, past and non-members of OMTC are welcome. There will be some opportunities for Junior chorus members who are currently or have previously been OMTC members.
There will be both singing and acting opportunities.
The open evening for those interested in the concert will be held at Cornerstone Church, Oswestry SY11 2HJ, on 25th June at 7–8pm. The open evening is both for performers, and for volunteers who wish to help with the performance in other ways.
Rehearsals will be held on Monday and Thursday evenings throughout July and August. You will not be expected to attend all rehearsals but we do require a good commitment.
The Musical Director is Kate MacDonald, staging with Rebekah Plaisted, and pianist Helen. Phil Box is looking after everything regarding production and front-of-house.
Oswestry Musical Theatre Company has begun rehearsals for our upcoming show, Into The Woods. Stephen Sondheim’s acclaimed musical intertwines the plots of several well-known fairy tales, exploring the consequences of the characters’ wishes and actions.
The show will be performed on the evenings of 12th, 13th and 14th April, plus a matinee show on 14th April.
Following auditions, we have filled most of the roles with an amazing cast of returning members along with many new faces. Our first rehearsal was held on 5th February, where there was a read-through of the script with a lot of laughs in the process!
There are still a few parts to fill in this show:
Jack’s Mother: female, over 25, Soprano with chorus numbers and some solo singing.
Cinderella’s Stepmother: female, over 25, Mezzo-Soprano with chorus numbers and some solo singing.
Cinderella’s Father: male, over 25, some chorus singing but mostly spoken word.
