Cinderella has sadly come to an end, so we must look to the future – The Sound of Music!
There will be one Sound of Music rehearsal on Thursday 8th December, then we’ll meet again shortly after the new year.
All matinee performances of Cinderella are sold out, with only a few tickets remaining for Friday and Saturday evening.
Tickets for the Sound of Music (11th-14th April 2012) will be available before and after performances of Cinderella (2nd-4th December). Tickets are available for £10 each and are sure to sell quickly for this popular show which has just finished a 2 year run on the West End, starring Connie Fisher as Maria, and was the inspiration for timeless film starring Julie Andrews.
Book your seat early to guarantee availability.
OMTC are proud to be one of the first Amateur companies with a licence to perform Rogers and Hammerstein’s “The Sound of Music”, with Music and Lyrics by Richard Rogers and Oscar Hammerstein, and a book by Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse. It is based on the memoir of Maria von Trapp, The Story of the Trapp Family Singers.
The Sound of Music has many familiar and beautiful songs, including “I have Confidence”, “Do, Ray Mi”, “The Lonely Goatherd” and “Edelweiss”. Combine this with the well-written, well-known story and this show promises to be a hit.

I’ve been working on getting a new website for OMTC up and I decided, as I’m not a web designer and don’t have much of a clue about making good websites, that a WordPress blog was a sensible format to go with.
I’m still experimenting with themes and designs, and there’s plenty more content to add but the most important things are here. If you have any comments, let me know by commenting or emailing me – psumner @ omtc.info
Performances are at the following times:
- 7:30pm on Friday 2nd
- 2:30pm and 7:30pm on Saturday the 3rd
