MMT is a group of amateur performers who enjoy getting together, making music and having fun.

Monmouth Music Theatre, formerly known as Monmouth Operatic Society, was formed in 1988. We originally performed Gilbert & Sullivan, and over the years have presented most of their operettas. We have now widened our scope and performed Die Fledermaus, Merry Widow, Oklahoma, Calamity Jane and Annie Get Your Gun, My Fair Lady and Me & My Girl.

We perform one major show a year, usually in April, and then minor shows or concerts in the autumn. Our concerts are varied and have ranged from 'A Night at the Opera', consisting of well known opera solos and choruses, to 'Magic of the Musicals', consisting of many popular songs from such shows as Grease, Les Miserables, West Side Story and many more.

We meet every week, why not contact us or drop by. You will be made very welcome.

The Monmouth Music Theatre is a Registered Charity (No: 1154731) and is affiliated with National Operatic & Dramatic Association. You can also support the MMT by using EasyFundraising when you shop online.


Our Next Show:
Monmouth Music Theatre presents "My Fair Lady", which will be performed at The Savoy Theatre, Monmouth from 17th to 20th April 2024.

A Review of our last production, 'Pirates of Penzance'

'The Pirates Come to Town', a review by Louise Martin

The Pirates of Penzance stormed the stage at the Savoy Theatre last week, courtesy of the talented Monmouth Music Theatre group, wowing audiences as both hard G&S fans & newbies such as myself, were completely hooked throughout.

With amazing singing, everyone full of expression and beautifully animated - the cast’s energy and their obvious enjoyment just resonated out from the stage. Adrian Bevan as Frederick, and also the Stage Director, owned the stage along with leading lady Holly Thody, as Mabel - her voice literally gave you goosebumps; their voices were perfect together.

Meri Maturin’s was a gloriously swashbuckling Pirate King, along with his band of brilliant pirates, while Chris Godwin as the Very Model Major General, word perfect and full of character. Katie Ellis, who played Ruth, was also impressive with her powerful voice. The daughter’s, accompanied by nurses, aunts and governesses were all delightful, with lots of dancing, twirling of umbrellas - in fact everyone’s stage craft was tremendous as that’s quite a slope at the Savoy. I absolutely loved the policemen, led by Philip Chant as Sergeant, with glorious singing and hilarious comedic performance, bringing much laughter from the audience.

All in all, tremendous entertainment. MMT’s productions should certainly not to be missed. Credit must also go to production: the beautiful costumes, great set, lighting & sound, and the wonderful musical accompaniment - it was very difficult to remember that this group of talented people are not professionals; in fact another member of the audience said to me, they thought that this was better than any West End performance. I have to agree and am looking forward to MMT’s production of My Fair Lady next Spring.
