Let’s go INTO THE WOODS! 1 and 2 March 2019

We are thrilled to announce that our next show will be Into the woods, to be staged at the Embassy Theatre, Skegness, on 1 and 2 March 2019.


James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim take everyone’s favorite storybook characters and bring them together for a timeless yet relevant piece and rare modern classic. The Tony Award-winning book and score are both enchanting and touching.

The story follows a Baker and his wife who wish to have a child, Cinderella who wishes to attend the King’s Festival, and Jack who wishes his cow would give milk. When the Baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a Witch’s curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse. Everyone’s wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results.

One of Sondheim’s most popular works, Into The Woods is a musically sophisticated show with the opportunity to feature actors adept at dark comedy. Designers will especially enjoy highlighting the fantastical elements of this magical word.


We would love to see some new members join our society for this fabulous show, so please come along to the Grosvenor House Hotel in Skegness on Wednesday 12 September, at 7.00 pm, for our first rehearsal.  We can give you all the information about rehearsal schedules, audition dates, and membership costs.


If you want to get in touch, email us at, or follow us on facebook – our page is Skegness Musical Theatre Company.




AGM 2018

The Annual General Meeting of the Society will be held on Monday 11 June, 2018, at 7pm.  The venue is Rotherwood, Drake Road, SKEGNESS.

The meeting is open to all members.  Please send apologies to the Secretary.


I am afraid I have bad news for our members. Through no fault of her own Jo is not available for our planned show week, and unfortunately the Embassy Theatre has been unable to find us another date. As you can appreciate, we cannot perform a show without the producer present, and this has left us with no alternative but to cancel our production of Boogie Nights. This has been a very difficult decision for the committee; we have never found ourselves in this position before and we are working hard to make sure there are alternative opportunities for everyone to perform.
After the success of our concerts at the Richmond School, and at the local WI groups, we are very keen to pursue the idea of performing more concerts, and we are also working on a new production for later in the year. More details will follow as soon as they are finalised.
In the meantime, please come along to the Royal Arthur Hall, Ingoldmells at 7.00 pm on Wednesday 17th January, when we will be working on new concert material. We would love to see old and new faces there – it’s a great opportunity to perform solos, duets, and ensemble pieces from all genres of show – in other words there is something for everyone!

A little bit of history about our Society

How many people knew that we can trace our history back to 1922, when we were formed as the ‘Skegness Amateur Operatic Society’?  


The first general meeting was held at the Edinburgh Cafe, Skegness, on Thursday 15 June 1922, at 8.00 pm.  There were 24 people present, from which the first committee was formed, and the following principles were adopted:-


“The Society to be named ‘The Skegness Amateur Operatic Society’.

The Object of the Society to be the rehearsal and production of light opera.

Management is vested in a committee consisting of President, Musical Director, Producer, Treasurer, and Secretary.

Membership:  by invitation.  All members shall, if so required, submit to a test to prove ability, fitness, or suitability for any particular part.

Subscription:  None (at present).  Members must defray the cost of their own music.

Authority:  The Musical Director shall have sole control in questions relating to music, and the Producer in questions relating to stage action, scenery, costumes, and effects.

The management shall be empowered to require the withdrawal of any member whose conduct, lack of ability, or failure to attend practices or rehearsals renders such course desirable.

Members are expected to attend at least 90% of practices, and to attend punctually.

No person other than members of the cast shall be present at rehearsals without the consent of the Musical Director (or the Producer).

A concert committee to be formed in due course.”


The early shows were indeed light opera, including HMS Pinafore, The Mikado, Gondoliers, Pirates of Penzance, Iolanthe, Patience, Yeoman of the Guard, Merrie England, The Geisha, Rose of Persia, The Chocolate Soldier, Ruddigore, and Gypsy Love.


The Society took a break during the war years, and then re-formed on 11 November 1964 as ‘The Skegness and District Amateur Operatic Society’.  The first show performed by the new society was The King and I.


The Society is now called ‘Skegness Musical Theatre Company’, and has continued to flourish.  We are an inclusive society and love to encourage new talent, and also to tackle shows of all genres.  Our last ten shows have been Whistle down the Wind, Sister Act, Scrooge, Sweeney Todd, The King and I, My Fair Lady, Thoroughly Modern Millie, Pirates of Penzance, Fiddler on the roof, and The Scarlet Pimpernel.  In other words, we have ranged from light opera, through Rogers and Hammerstein, to Alan Menken, Andrew Lloyd Webber and Jim Steinman.  Next year we are performing ‘Boogie Nights’ at the Embassy Theatre.  This will be a new venture for us, with lots of great 70s hits to sing and dance to, but we hope that we can keep finding a new audience so that we are here to celebrate our centenary.

BOOGIE NIGHTS – rehearsals start on 3 January!

It’s time to Boogie!


Rehearsals for Boogie Nights start on Wednesday 3 January, 7.00 pm,  at the Royal Arthur Hall, Ingoldmells.  It’s really important for everyone to be there as we will be singing with our Musical Director, setting harmonies, and running through audition pieces ready for the following week.


Auditions will be held on 10 January, starting at 7.00 pm at the Royal Arthur Hall, Ingoldmells.  If you wish to audition, please get in touch via our facebook page so we can add you to the list.  We will also be publishing the audition pieces soon, so keep checking back for more information.


Jo Fitzwilliams, who produced our last show ‘Whistle Down the Wind’ is once again our producer for the year.  Jo has a lot of experience appearing in shows as a singer and dancer, and has lots of ideas to make ‘Boogie Nights’ fun to appear in as well as to watch.


We are delighted that David Hallgate is to be our Musical Director this year, and we are all looking forward to working with him again.


Our Choreographer is Jade Wattam, assisted by her sister Amber.  Jade is new to our group, but is a very experienced and talented choreographer, and we are excited to have her on our team.


Please come along and meet us on Wednesday 3 January; we are always looking for new members to appear in our shows, as well as back stage crew.

2018 show – come and join our 70s party! BOOGIE NIGHTS THE MUSICAL

Our next show will be the 70s musical ‘Boogie Nights’.  We will be performing at the Embassy Theatre, Skegness, from 14 to 16 June.

If you would like to join us, please come along on a Wednesday night at 7.00 pm, to the Royal Arthur Hall, Ingoldmells.

Rehearsals will start on Wednesday 4 January 2018.


Do you remember where you were the night Elvis died? Well, tonight’s the night. Boogie Nights-The Musical tells the hilarious and heart-warming story of Roddy, a Jack-the-lad, whose life of birds, booze and boogie is about to be turned upside down.

It’s the night that the King, Elvis Presley, died and Roddy O’Neill is busy dreaming of life as a rock star! Debs, his girlfriend, has her own thoughts… basically that Roddy’s a selfish, arrogant, horrible, unfeeling, rude, heartless pig! But the truth is that Roddy is in love with Debs, and Debs is in love with Roddy, but Debs knows that her Roddy has more than a roving eye! Through all their tears and laughter – can they both find what they are truly searching for?

Packed with all the greatest Disco classics Boogie Nights-The Musical will have the audience up on its feet doing The Bump and The Hustle, and funking along to the grooviest chart topping hits like ‘You Sexy Thing’,’ Y.M.C.A.’, ‘I Will Survive’, ‘In The Navy’, ‘Can You Feel The Force’, ‘I Love To Love’, ‘Boogie Wonderland’ and many many more!

53rd Annual General Meeting 2017

The 53rd Annual General Meeting of the Society will be held on Wednesday 7 June 2017 at Rotherwood, Drake Road, SKEGNESS, commencing at 7.00 pm.


All members past and present are welcome to attend.


As usual we will be electing officers and committee members, deciding on subscriptions for the next year, and announcing our show for 2018.


We look forward to seeing you all there.


Our latest show, Whistle Down the Wind, will be staged at the Embassy Theatre, Skegness, from 9 to 11 March 1t 7.30 pm.


Based on the novel by Mary Hayley Bell and subsequent Richard Attenborough produced film, Whistle Down the Wind follows the fortunes of a fugitive caught between the prejudice of adults and the innocence of the young.


Andrew Lloyd Webber and Jim Steinman, together with Patricia Knop and Gale Edwards (co-book writers with Andrew Lloyd Webber) reset the original story in Louisiana in 1959.


Whistle Down the Wind revolves around the time and place where the word teenager was invented.  Swallow, a 15 year old girl growing up in America’s deep South in the fifties, discovers a mysterious man hiding out in a barn.  When she asks who he is and the first words he utters are “Jesus Christ”, it’s as if all her prayers have been answered.  Swallow and the town’s other children vow to protect the stranger from the world that waits outside – the townspeople who are determined to catch a fugitive hiding in their midst.  As fantasy and reality collide, Swallow is torn between the two and begins to discover who she is and where she is going.


Andrew Lloyd Webber’s emotive score combines hauntingly beautiful love songs and explosive rock music with lyrics by acclaimed rock’n’roll songwriter Jim Steinman.  The score contrasts the relentless influence of the modern world with the traditional values of the old days – something which the community at the heart of Whistle Down the Wind yearns to return to.


Annual General Meeting 2016

The 52nd Annual General Meeting of the Society will be held on Wednesday 8 June 2016 at Rotherwood, Drake Road, Skegness at 7.00pm.

We need new officers for the club, and a new committee member, so please give serious consideration to offering your services; without you the club may not be able to continue!


I have attached a summary of the positions which need to be filled; read them and ask questions if you need to, then find yourself a proposer and seconder.  The previous officers will still be around to help you – you won’t be left to flounder!

SOCIAL EVENING – It’s time to look in the dressing up box!

As you all know, Mary has a tardis at home in which she keeps our ever growing supply of costumes.  We decided it was time to clear out the store, and raise some funds at the same time.

In order to sell the costumes over the internet, we will need some photographs of them being worn, and who better to act as models than our own budding actors!


On Wednesday 17 June, 7.00 pm, at Royal Arthur Hall, Ingoldmells, we will have a get-together to help sort the costumes, photograph them, and get them on the internet for sale.  We thought this would turn into a fun evening, especially if we were to order take aways and bring a bottle of wine or two.


Mary works tirelessly on our behalf, so this is your chance to give a little help in return.  Please make a note in your diary, and come along.

Trevor goes the extra mile to take on Yul Brynner’s iconic role of The King of Siam

Trevor Fenton always gives 100% to his performance – but this year he has gone the extra mile, by having his head shaved to take on the role of King Mongkut of Siam in the King and I.   Trevor decided against wearing a bald cap, and allowed Mrs Anna (Katy Meadows) to shave his head for the role.   Katy soon overcame her initial nerves at using clippers for the first time, and was cheered on by the cast as she slowly but surely removed all of Trevor’s hair. 

As this year’s show coincides with Comic Relief, we will be passing collection buckets around the auditorium, so if you want to sponsor Trevor’s head shave, please give generously.
