THE FRIDAY FEATURE | Mill Hill Musical Theatre Company

The Mill Hill Musical Theatre Company have been in existence since 1954.   During that time they have entertained the residents of the area with many productions-  with over 50 to date!

In 2013 the name changed to the current one from the original name MHAOS.

They explain

"In July 2013 we changed our name from Mill Hill Amateur Operatic Society, the title under which we have been known since our founding in 1954. So why the new image?

Well, after nearly 60 years we felt that the old name did not properly convey the type of society that we are, nor did it fully reflect the range of work which we now perform. These considerations have become much more important in these days of the internet, Facebook and Twitter where much of our publicity, both for recruitment and box office purposes, now takes place.

What our new image does not mean is that we will be substantially changing our repertoire, so we will continue to perform works from classic light operetta by Gilbert & Sullivan, Offenbach, Lehar etc, which have been the backbone of our work in the past, as well as more recent works."
 
Productions are held regularly in Mill Hill and the next production is in April.
 
"We're well into rehearsals for our next show, called Beyond The Sea.

It's an enjoyable mix of songs, from operetta and standards to pop hits, connected – erm, sometimes only  vaguely – to the beautiful briny.

Our MD is Margaret Dewar and Clare Shah is directing (and singing!).


Only MHMTC patrons are able to attend, so if you'd like to come along, please contact patrons secretary Grant Graves on 020 8959 2028 or email patrons@mhmtc.co.uk."
Beyond The Sea is being performed at  Hartley Hall, Flower Lane, Mill Hill, NW7 2JA , on Friday 15 and Saturday 16 April 2016, curtain up at 7.30pm.

MHMTC welcome new members both as patrons and as performers.  As one of the oldest societies in the area you will find a wide range of ages and it is an ideal group to join in order to experience the Mill Hill community.  To find out about joining click HERE to go to their website.
