CMTC are excited to announce that we have secured the rights to Betty Blue Eyes for our 2019 production at a new performance venue, the Duchess Theatre in Long Eaton. Betty Blue Eyes is a 2011 stage musical comedy based on the 1984 film A Private Function, and features music by George Stiles, with lyrics by Anthony Drewe. The book was written for the stage by Ron Cowen and Daniel Lipman, adapted from Alan Bennett's original screenplay. Since it's debut it has enjoyed a West End run and multiple successful tours, and we will therefore be delighted to bring it to a theatre near you! If you would like some more information on the show itself, check out their official site...

We are thrilled to be able to announce that CMTC walked away from the annual Eagle awards with an award to our name for the third year running! The company won the Eagle Award for 'Best Production of a Musical' for the first time since 2013 for our March performance of Jekyll & Hyde. A huge congratulations to everybody involved with the production both on and off stage for making it such a fantastic week, this award is superb recognition of their hard work. CMTC were also nominated in other categories; Our BSL interpreted performance was nominated for the 'Outstanding Achievement' award, and two of our performers, Laurence Sutton and Sarah Towle, were nominated for 'Best Performance in a Musical'. Accessibility to theatre continues to be a huge passion for CMTC abd to see us nominated for such an award was delightful. Congratulations to all the other winners on the night and to the organisers of the awards for a great celebration of Amateur Theatre.


 We enjoyed a busy and very successful festive period to round off a great year for CMTC.

 We had volunteers run a Stall at the Mickleover Christmas Fayre, raising money for the company and awareness of our upcoming production in February.

 We had our tree erected and decorated at Mackworth Christmas Festival for the third year running, sparkling in 'Kiss Me Kate' colours!

 Last, but not least, we performed our Christmas Concert not once but TWICE to enthusiastic and healthy audiences at both CURC and Mickleover Golf Club.

 Many thanks to all involved in all of these events!
