Welcome To Knutsford Musical Theatre Company
Knutsford Musical Theatre Company is a small, friendly amateur musical theatre society that have been performing shows since 1943 who aim to put on 2 shows every year. Feel free to take a look around our website for information regarding up and coming shows, as well as everything you need to know about KMTC.
If there is something you would like to know which is not covered within the site, or you would like to chat with someone from the company, please get in touch via our contact page.
Swetenhams are sponsoring our programme for this show and Seafarer are offering an incredible 15% off meals at their Northwich Restaurant on performance days. Do you know that KMTC is a registered charity and is dedicated to bringing our high standard productions to you at the lowest possible price. In fact, a show like Our House is likely to cost KMTC around £25 for everyone who comes to see it! Yet we have a price range from £12 to £16 for this show. This cannot be done without a lot of fund-raising and we are very grateful to all our sponsors for the help they give. In addition over 2,500 volunteer hours go into every production, just on rehearsals and performances, not counting hours invested into fund-raising events!
Our House is a musical with music and lyrics by Madness and a book by playwright Tim Firth. The show features songs from the ska/pop band Madness, and was named after one of their popular hit singles, "Our House". Premiering at The Cambridge Theatre in 2002, Our House was the winner of the 2003 Olivier award for Best New Musical and has since gone on to tour both nationally and internationally to great acclaim. Through the music of Madness, writer Tim Firth explores the themes of love, family values, growing up, responsibility and dealing with losing the people that shape us.
"Our House", Memorial Court, 26th - 28th May 2016
Our House has many obvious influences including Willy Russell's Blood Brothers and the 1998 romantic comedy film Sliding Doors. Some critics have even called the show the British answer to Rent, the Jonathan Larson rock opera which follows the lives of a group of 20-something year-olds living in New York. For many years prior to the creation of Our House, Madness had been considering ways that they could turn their songs into a musical.
With a dynamic cast and direction team, Our House will build on the recent sucesses of this vibrant company.
Following on from the incredible recent productions of "Stepping Out", "Show Stoppers", "Spring Awakening", "Little Shop of Horrors" and "The Addams Family" the multi-award winning KMTC is now bringing Our House to you, our faithful fans.
This will be performed at the fantastic, brand new theatre, at Memorial Court, Northwich.
Tickets are now on sale for the production, and can be bought through our Box Office .
