As many of our readers may already know, Rachel and I have been members of Salford Musical Theatre Company (SMTC) for more than 10 years and have been fortunate to have appeared in numerous award winning musical productions.
In 2008 when the theatre company faced massive debts, it was decided to stage a pantomime for the first time in the societies 60 year history. From humble beginnings the annual panto has entertained audiences of all ages and our last production in December 2012 “Puss In Boots” was adjudicated by the National Operatic and Dramatic Association (NODA) for the first time ever.
Puss in Boots was judged to be the District 1 “Best Panto” and will now go on to represent the North West at the national finals to be held in Blackpool later this year.
As the producer, director and script writer of this brilliant SMTC production I am incredibly proud of the achievement of a talented bunch of people who all worked incredibly hard to produce an amazingly entertaining show that raised funds for the society and ensured that our next productions can afford to be staged. In particular I would like to publicly thank my wife Rachel for her outstanding performance as the title character, showing amazing talent and superlative confidence which brought praise from the adjudicator and audiences alike.
I would like to take this opportunity to publicly thank everyone involved in SMTC for producing such an entertaining and award winning show!

Our next musical production is “Little Shop of Horrors” in May 2013 and rehearsals have only just started and we would like to give everyone, regardless of ability to join us on stage
2013 also sees SMTC again taking part in the annual charity showcase at The Lowry in July raising money for local charities, however I am not at liberty to disclose what show we will be performing but for those with “money, money, money” may face their “waterloo” if they don’t “take a chance”, rehersals start in June and this short production will be energetic and fun!
In the meantime get your tickets booked early for Little Shop of Horrors as they will sell out fast! details below
