Bournville

BMTC have been performing for over 60 years.
They were affiliated to Cadburys and their venue was the 750 seat concert hall in the heart of Cadburys.
Many employees from Cadburys have treaded the boards at the concert hall, and shows such as The Sound of Music, Fiddler on the Roof, Hello Dolly were successfully staged there.
Over the years Cadburys decided that the concert hall could no longer be used for performances by the BMTC, and with regret, our last production was Anything Goes in 2000.
We moved to The OLD Rep in Station Street in Birmingham City Centre for our London to New York show in 2001, followed by South Pacific in 2002 and our last production, Cabaret at the Old Rep in 2003.
Due to increased audience sizes and facilities offered by the Crescent Theatre we moved to this venue in Sheepcote Street for our sell out production of Carousel in February 2004.

We have won many awards both on stage, behind the scenes and front of house.
We do at least 3 performances a year. In February, we perform our annual Traditional Pantomime, written and directed by our own members. In March/April we enter the All England One Act Play Festival and in late October C.A.T.S. perform the October play.The venue for our Pantomimes and October plays is the Cheadle Community Theatre, Cheadle Academy, Station Road, Cheadle, Staffs.
