NMTC Children's Choir
Newtown Musical Theatre Company will be performing Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s ‘Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat’ in the Hafren from the 17th – 20th October this year. This is a really exciting opportunity for us – this show is not normally available for adult amateur companies, however it has been released this year to celebrate the show’s 50th anniversary, and we are very pleased to have been selected to receive a license to perform it.
The show includes a Children’s Choir throughout, and we are offering the opportunity for children aged 9 – 12 in Newtown and the surrounding area to join us on stage as part of our ‘Joseph Choir’ for this show. If your child would be interested in taking part, please come along to the first rehearsal, which will be held at Treowen School at 2pm on Sunday 8th July. During the first half hour, the show’s Directors will give an introduction to the show and what will be required. Then, we will start our first rehearsal, which will end at 5pm. Parents / carers will be asked to leave once we start the rehearsal, and to return to collect their children at 5pm.
Other rehearsal dates / times will be as follows:
Sunday 15th July 2 – 5pm
Sunday 22nd July 2 – 5pm
Wednesday 25th July 6.00 – 7.30pm
Wednesday 1st August 6.00 – 7.30pm
Wednesday 8th August 6.00 – 7.30pm
Wednesday 15th August 6.00 – 7.30pm

Sunday 9th September 2 – 5pm
In addition, we will be holding a weekend rehearsal from Friday 14th – Sunday 16th September. The times when we will need the Children’s Choir are to be confirmed. Rehearsal arrangements from the 16th September until show week will also be confirmed nearer the time, however these are likely to include a mixture of Wednesday evenings, Friday evenings and Sundays.
If your child would be interested in joining us to take part in this fantastic show, please come along to Treowen at 2pm on Sunday, 8th July. If you are unable to attend on the 8th July but would like to take part, please get in touch with us using the contact details above. You are also welcome to get in touch if you have any further queries at this stage.
We look forward to seeing you on the 8th July.
