Wimborne Musical Theatre was formed in the 1960’s by a group of musical enthusiasts who wanted to pass their love of the medium on to local audiences, and endulge their passion while doing it! In the early days, as Broadstone Light Operatic Society, the company mixed pure musical theatre, performing productions such as Brigadoon and The Pajama Game with light operatic and ‘G&S’ favourites, such as HMS Pinafore and Die Fledermaus.
The company has evolved over the years, with a move to the Tivoli Theatre as their main performance venue and the significant decison to change the company name to Wimborne Musical Theatre, but the original aims of the society remain the same. Some of the founding members are still with the company, although they have been joined over time by some equally enthusiastic new members, and this is the company that are performing our latest show.
The company continues to go from strength to strength, producing critically and commercially successful versions of some old favourites, such as My Fair Lady and The Sound of Music, but is also becoming better known for its winter shows, which emphasise the excellent standards and varied talents of company members.
If you would like to become involved in the company, either as a performing member or as part of our backstage crew, we’d love to hear from you. Either come along to one of our rehearsals at the Merley Community Centre (Google Map), starting at 7.45pm on a Thursday evening, or just give us a call!
