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.

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.

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!

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.
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.
