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!

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.

Be there or be square, and don’t have a say in the future of the company.

All members are invited. Junior members welcome to come and participate, but unfortunately won’t be able to vote on any proposals.

 

[Edited – Not March! MAY!]

GOLD – Only 2 weeks to go

GOLD – The company’s 50th anniversary show opens on Wednesday the 10th of April.  Tickets are selling quickly, and our box office (Music Makers) is only open on Saturday the 6th April between now and when the show opens so if you need tickets, either contact us on info@omtc.info or make sure you’re in Oswestry and visit Music Makers on the 6th April.

On the 6th April we will be in Oswestry pushing ticket sales even further!  Every last ticket counts.  Anyone who can help out, please come along to meet us outside Home Bargains at 1030.

Back to the grind & audition news

Hi everyone. Happy new year to you all. Now that the season of festivities is over, it’s straight back to the grindstone for the company. Rehearsals started in anger last night, with the announcement that auditions will be held on the 17th January.

Audition pieces are available – contact Mark or come to rehearsals (Mondays & Thursdays, 7.30pm, the Marches School) if you need details!

Another show over – another show begins!

Aladdin is done, the stage has been struck and the magic lantern has been put back in the cave, the kids are coming down from the sugar high and the hearing of the cast & crew is slowly returning after experiencing the noise that the cubs made on Sunday afternoon.

Rehearsals are nearly done with for the year.  Note I say “nearly”! There are two GOLD(!) rehearsals scheduled before the end of the year – Monday the 10th (no juniors required) and Monday the 17th December (whole company), with the final rehearsal involving some carol singing and an opportunity to drink some wine and socialise a bit after finishing at 9pm.

Songs from GOLD(!) will come from a huge variety of the shows that we’ve performed over the past 50 years, these include (though are not limited to):

  • No Business Like Show Business

  • Blow Gabriel Blow

  • Consider Yourself

  • Get Me To The Church on Time

  • June is Bustin’ out all Over

  • You’ll Never Walk Alone

  • Gonna Wash That Man Right Out Of My Hair

  • There is Nothing Like A Dame

  • Oklahoma!

  • The Lambeth Walk

  • One Day More

Performances will be the 10th-13th April 2013 at the Marches School, Morda Road, Oswestry, SY11 2AR.
