MMT is a group of amateur performers who enjoy getting together, making music and having fun.

Monmouth Music Theatre, formerly known as Monmouth Operatic Society, was formed in 1988. We originally performed Gilbert & Sullivan, and over the years have presented most of their operettas. We have now widened our scope and performed Die Fledermaus, Merry Widow, Oklahoma, Calamity Jane and Annie Get Your Gun, My Fair Lady and Me & My Girl.

We perform one major show a year, usually in April, and then minor shows or concerts in the autumn. Our concerts are varied and have ranged from 'A Night at the Opera', consisting of well known opera solos and choruses, to 'Magic of the Musicals', consisting of many popular songs from such shows as Grease, Les Miserables, West Side Story and many more.

We meet every week, why not contact us or drop by. You will be made very welcome.

The Monmouth Music Theatre is a Registered Charity (No: 1154731) and is affiliated with National Operatic & Dramatic Association. You can also support the MMT by using EasyFundraising when you shop online.




PRODUCTIONS

Our Next Show:
We will perform "Guys and Dolls" from 3rd to 6th April 2019.

"When you see a guy reach for stars in the sky, you can bet he is doing it for some doll!"

Nothing much has changed in the last 70 years! Yes, 70 years, but, essentially, what we have here, set against the gambling culture of 50's New York, is two very different love stories.

Those awful Prohibition years are well in the past now, but there are still some remnants from those days looking for action and cash, albeit of a less 'racy' nature. This provides a perfect opportunity for Nathan Detroit to carve out an easy income, merely providing venues and opportunities for them to lose their money to each other! Low risk and safety - that's his policy - and that's true of his relationship with Adelaide too. Engaged for 14 years because he's too scared to commit! And yet he couldn't bear to lose her. So she has to accept what he is capable of giving and wait for her man to grow up!

What is needed is a catalyst - and Sky Masterson breezes into town! Now here's a free spirit if you like! No lowrisk strategies for him! Never afraid to gamble huge amounts on bets that he regards as worth the risk, and not bothered by emotions that get in the way. And then he meets a 'doll' - a doll unlike any he has met before - and his whole world is turned upside down! As is hers! When opposite worlds collide! Something else that hasn't changed in the last 70 years!

So...while we wait for the inevitable to happen - to both couples - let's enjoy the sparkling wit and brilliant songs that remain as fresh today as when they were written. We are guaranteed to leave the theatre chuckling and singing, especially after joining in with the final number! And we will certainly be agreeing with the sentiment: "Luck be a lady tonight!"
