Bristol Musical Theatre was formed in 1946 by a group of friends with a shared interest in theatre. Up until recently, we were formerly known as ‘The Western Opera Players‘.
To celebrate our ’70th anniversary’ in 2016, we decided to adapt our society name to quite simply represent who we are and what we do. Bristol Musical Theatre is exactly this and we LOVE it! Our first production was The Gondoliers in 1947.
The productions were staged at The Victoria Rooms in Clifton, Bristol until the early 1990’s when the company moved to the Redgrave Theatre, also in Clifton – and this is where we still perform today.
We rehearse from September at St Thomas Mar Thoma Church in Bristol on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, working hard to produce our main production which we stage in April every year.
During the rest of the year, we enjoy taking part in charity and community events such as carol singing and summer fetes.
We often produce concerts for local charities and organisations and love giving something back to the community!
Recently we have performed at the following venues:
Leonard Cheshire Disability Cossham Gardens, Kingswood
Beech house ltd Thornbury
‘The Galleries’ Bristol
‘The Mall’ at Cribbs Causeway
If you would like Bristol Musical Theatre to sing and perform at an event you are organising, please get in touch with our secretary for more information on what we can offer! We would love to hear from you!
