Rehearsals start up for Oliver!

Apologies for the late notice here, but if you follow us on our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/OswestryMusicals) you should have seen this!

Rehearsals for Oliver have started! We’ve had a music rehearsal so far just to go over what most of us already know, but anyone is still welcome to join us on Thursday the 8th (tomorrow!) at 7:30pm until about 10pm for a Commedia and Melodrama workshop, followed by audition preparation on Monday the 12th.

We’ll be in room C6, in the Wilfred Owen building. If you would like to come along, just turn up! Drop us an email at oliver@omtc.info beforehand if you’d like a friendly face to meet you.

Performances will be at the end of May (Weds 27th through Sat 30th).

Sleeping Beauty Ticket Sales!

There are still tickets available for Sleeping Beauty at our online box office http://omtc.ticketsource.co.uk/

Tickets will also be on sale very shortly in Christian’s jewellers on Bailey Street in Oswestry.

Tickets are £10 adults/£8 children, if buying online there is a small booking fee which will be clearly shown when you check out.

This promises to be a rip-roaring pantomime with the familiar Sleeping Beauty story, traditional pantomime silliness and music to keep you humming all night long.

Seeking: Director and Musical Director for Oliver! (Easter 2015)

The OMTC committee have agreed that for our Easter 2015 show, putting on a production of Oliver! would be a good option.  It’s a popular show, and with relatively recent West End revivals, it is still fresh in many people’s minds.

As of now, we haven’t had a creative team (Director, Musical Director, Producer, etc) come forward and volunteer to do the show.

If you are interested in directing a show for the company, or you know someone who  may be interested, please get in touch!  If you have any questions, think you may be able to do one role but not know anyone who can do the others, please get in touch and we will see what we can do.

Email info@omtc.info, or come along to a panto rehearsal (usually Mondays and Thursdays, 7:30-10pm in the main hall of the Marches School, Morda Road, Oswestry, SY11 2AR).

Video from Oswestry Fun Day

Hi All,

I’ve been asked to post a link that was taken at the Oswestry Fun Day – from Friday 29th August along with the Oswestry farmer’s market.

The video can be found on the OMTC Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/oswestrymusicals/ – join the group to keep up to date with our activities there.

Well done to all involved with the day – working tirelessly despite the weather to give a day of fun to the community, while promoting the company and raising some money!

Tickets for Sleeping Beauty are available to buy online!

In a first for OMTC, we have made tickets for our next show, Sleeping Beauty, available to buy online!  Initially we’ve made half of the seats in the theatre available to buy online, but if demand is high enough we can make the rest of the seats available.

Tickets are available now to buy from here: http://omtc.ticketsource.co.uk/ – tickets are £10/£8 and groups who buy 10 tickets will get an extra one free.

There is a small booking fee if you book through the website which covers the cost of credit/debit card processing, but for the convenience of not having to make a trip into town, we think it’s worth it!

Rehearsals for Sleeping Beauty

Rehearsals are starting on Monday the 2nd of June (7.30-10.00pm in room C6 at The Marches School) for our next production – Sleeping beauty. This will be performed in early December 2014 (I think it’s the weekend of the 5th, 6th and 7th of December but I don’t have my notes handy). If you’re interested in taking part – whether young, old, a singer, an actor, if you’ve never been on stage, if you’ve been on stage since you were 4! We welcome anyone (but especially younger men!) – check the event on our Facebook page for details!

If you don’t fancy being on stage but can spare some time to help out with more practical things, we always need help before the show with designing, making, painting, setting up, tearing down, and moving things around. If you or anyone you know can do any of that before or during the show, let us know here or email info@omtc.info!

If you’re good with people, please consider helping our front of house team on the performance nights. Helping customers, working on the bar, selling tickets, programs, raffle tickets & generally being the face of the company. If you’re interested, let us know here or email info@omtc.info.

AGM Time – 19th May 2014 @ 7.30pm

Hi to all members!

Now that the show is over, the next date for your diary: 19th May is booked as the date for the AGM. 7.30pm at the Marches. We have a lot to discuss with you all and want as many of you to be involved as possible.
