Northampton Musical Theatre Company

We started in 1898 as The Northampton Amateur Operatic Company. Each year we put on at least one main show and several concerts, whilst winning many NODA awards along the way!

Northampton Musical Theatre Company Youth Society

We’ve recently launched our Youth Society. While we have had children in many of our shows before, this will be the first time that we will be putting on Youth Editions of shows – where the entire cast is made up of children!

Upcoming Productions and Reviews from Previous Shows


When it comes to musicals in my district (and our region), Northampton Musical Theatre Company is the business, the big boys! This long running concern stages all the well-known musicals every year and does so to a professional standard.

Luke Campbell, East Midlands District 8 NODA Representative 



NMTC’s shows are always impressive and this was proved once again by this production of The Wizard of Oz, which was a delight. Acting and singing were of a very high standard. This show is a great triumph for director Martyn Knight and his team.

Alex Wood, Sardines Magazine

South Pacific at Royal & Derngate last year set a remarkable benchmark for an “amateur” production, with a large talented cast, superb vocals, sets and a polish up there with a professional production. Sister Act, this year’s production from the Northampton Musical Theatre Company was more of the same but perhaps taken up a notch or two.

A Small Mind At The Theatre

The vocals from both principals and ensemble in Oklahoma were to a standard not often achieved in amateur dramatics. They have assembled an excellent orchestra with some very talented musicians. Well done!

Caroline Jervis
East Midlands Representative, NODA

You were fantastic. Vocals spot on. Leads amazing and ensemble pieces fabulous; You should be proud. Beats the last professional performance I saw of South Pacific hands down. Well done. I’m a musician and also a HUGE musical fan, justice was done. Vocally it was wonderful and the huge band was a joy to hear. I may just have to go again.

Ann White

It was a great production all around and the kids were lovely. Not many productions can boast a real Harley-Davidson. The story was very well told and with very believable characters. Bravo to all concerned!
The production has whetted my appetite for more amateur theatre.
