MHMTC staged on one of Gilbert & Sullivan's most famous and beloved of operettas – The Pirates Of Penzance – in October 2016, for which we received a very enthusiastic and gratifying reception from our audiences. Despite a very challenging first night when half the Company either got to Hartley Hall after curtain up or not at all due to a horrendous incident on the M4 resulting in nightmare traffic jams in and around Mill Hill, the show was a resounding success, both critically and financially.
Our Quiz Nights continue to be very popular. Held twice yearly, in the spring and autumn, our members, patrons and friends of the Company continue to attend in large numbers. It really helps with our fund-raising efforts in order to keep bringing you our twice-yearly productions! For that, we are forever in their debt.
MHMTC is delighted to announce that its next show is one of its most ambitious - smash hit modern musical Sister Act. Based on the Whoopi Goldberg film – but with totally new songs co-written by Disney legend Alan Menken – it really is a bundle of joyous fun. Being staged at the end of October 2017, it tells the hilarious story of Deloris Van Cartier, a wannabe diva whose life takes a surprising turn when she witnesses a crime and the cops hide her in the last place anyone would think to look- a convent! Under the suspicious watch of the Mother Superior, Deloris helps her fellow sisters find their voices as she unexpectedly finds her own. A sparkling tribute to the universal power of friendship, Sister Act is a reason to rejoice!
