2016 concert postponed to 2017

The company has made the decision to postpone our concert until Saturday 25th February 2017 at 7.30pm due to an extension of building works at the Williamstown Town Hall, which will now not be completed until mid-2016.

It is unfortunate that we have had to do this but with the company’s intent to reschedule rather than cancel this event, we will be transferring all existing bookings to this new performance date and will re-issue updated tickets and confirmation emails accordingly. Should this not be suitable, please let us know as with this unforeseen change to plans, refunds are also available for any tickets purchased to date.

At WMTC we pride ourselves on our strong relationships and patron satisfaction – therefore we have made contact with all current ticket holders via email to confirm receipt of our notification and acknowledging the transfer of tickets to the new performance date.

You know what they say “The show must go on!” – if you have any further questions, please let us know.

Production Announcement – City of Angels – November 2016

We are thrilled to announce our November 2016 production of ‘City of Angels’.

CITY OF ANGELS is two shows in one. It is the interweaving of two plots, one dealing with the writing of a screenplay in the legendary Hollywood of the 1940?s; the other, the enactment of that screenplay. This double feature quality leads to many other unique production values, the most notable being the fact that CITY OF ANGELS is perhaps the only “color coded” show any theatre audience is likely to see. The movie scenes appear in shades of black and white, and the real life scenes are in technicolor. The show boasts two musical scores. One provides the cast with numbers to help reveal certain emotions or to celebrate particular moments in the way that only music can. The “other” score was written to emulate pure movie soundtrack music, 1940?s vintage. It is entirely appropriate, then, that the final curtain comes down on two happy endings.
