About Ellesmere Port Musical Theatre Company

Affiliated to the National Operatic and Dramatic Association

Ellesmere Port Amateur Operatic Society has been performing since 1930 and has a tradition of presenting award winning, high quality entertainment to the public. In November 2001 the society decided to update its image and changed its name to Ellesmere Port Musical Theatre Company, which performs two main shows each year in addition to a variety of concerts and smaller productions. We are proud to have been nominated for a variety of NODA awards for several of our productions including "Disney’s Beauty and the Beast", "Sweet Charity", "The Witches of Eastwick" and "Anything Goes". Above all, EPMTC are a group of people who enjoy performing high quality productions whilst having a lot of fun.

Why not join us? Have you ever wanted to be on stage? Do you enjoy singing, dancing and acting? We are always looking for and encouraging new people to join us, either in an on-stage or off-stage capacity. To join us as a chorus member all you need to do is perform a short audition to prove that you can sing - don't worry though, willingness and enthusiasm is more important than perfection! EPMTC is open to people aged 15 years and upwards.

Interested? Then, please contact our secretary who will be able to provide you with some more information on joining and arrange for you to come along to one of our rehearsals. We normally rehearse on Mondays and Thursdays with additional Sunday rehearsals close to a show.

Throughout the year we also perform a variety of concerts in Ellesmere Port, The Wirral and beyond. Please contact us if you are interested in inviting us to perform for your event or organisation. We can offer a choice of short concerts, after dinner entertainment and complete evenings with music suited to your occasion.

Ellesmere Port Musical Theatre Company is affiliated to NODA (National Operatic and Dramatic Association).

Footloose Musicals

Footloose Musicals was set up in 2001 by members of Ellesmere Port Musical Theatre Company.

Footloose Musicals

Our aim is to build confidence and self esteem through musical theatre and to give members the chance to perform in our productions. Footloose is backed by a dedicated and creative administrative team who deliver with passion and drive, and draw out talent whenever they engage with young people.

Young people from any background are welcome and actively encouraged to explore their creativity in a safe, supportive environment. Normally mounting one main production annually, throughout the year, we focus on the ideas and creativity of young people, using their thoughts and imagination to create lively performances.

All skills are welcome from complete beginners to the more experienced!

Our age group is 8-21 and we ensure a constant source of fun activities, all at an affordable cost.

We stage our main production in July each year and rehearsals normally start in January - although we usually meet during November to give the young people who are auditioning for a part the opportunity to rehearse their piece. Auditions are usually in December.

Footloose members are required to pay a small annual subscription, plus £1 per week rehearsal fee. Rehearsal nights are Monday and Thursday (Sunday from May onwards) and we meet in Rivacre Valley Primary School.
