ASHBEIAN MUSICAL THEATRE GROUP NEWS

Summer is coming!

May already, and AMTG is now officially ‘resting’ after a brilliant season of productions – a Concert in October 2015, Aladdin in February (which enabled us to make donations to the Air Ambulance, LOROS and Rainbows Hospice) and Anything Goes in April 2016.

The productions were very well received, with amazing reviews such as “one of the best amateur dramatics companies in the area”; “the enjoyment felt by the company transferred immediately to the audience”; “performances worthy of the professional stage”. It’s hardly surprising that we are proud of AMTG, and everyone, on-stage and backstage, our wonderful orchestra, and our army of helpers and supporters, is part of the great family team that goes from strength to strength.

Our Honorary Patron Sally-Ann Triplett is currently on Broadway in Finding Neverland, which also stars Alfie Boe. We are hoping Sally-Ann might persuade him to support AMTG, and who knows, maybe one day they might come and do a duet at one of our concerts!

As we go to press the only event left on our calendar is our superb Swing Ball, which is on Saturday 28th May at Ibstock Community College. The Ball starts at 7.30pm and live music is provided by the wonderful Leicester Big Band under the baton of Roger Parsons and there is a licensed bar. Tickets are available by contacting our Box Office on 07527 228945, and are £15 each.

Looking forward, we will be spending the summer planning our Autumn Concert, and making a start on plans for Oliver! which will be performed at our lovely theatre home, the 400 Hall at Repton, from 4-8th April 2017. We will be inviting youngsters to audition for Fagin’s Gang, and there will be more information about that to follow.

If you would like to join this hugely successful Group, we are looking for new members for Oliver!, and we would be pleased to hear from you. Please contact us at [email protected] for more information.
