This year marks a special year for one truly valued member of Williamstown Musical Theatre Company. At last night’s Annual General Meeting, the WMTC committee were proud to announce our newest inductee to Life Member Status: Stuart Dodge.
 
Stuart first joined the company in 2008 and has been a cast member in 5 productions. His most notable achievements have been behind the scenes as a Director (13 shows), Choreographer, Set Designer, Scenic Artist, Properties Manager and Committee Member (since 2015) just to name a few.

In 2011 he was part of the inaugural team who developed and delivered our first junior program production, something he has consistently delivered on over a decade, a total of 9 junior productions with the company.

As a most deserving recipient of WMTC Life Membership, we express our deep appreciation, and award Stuart Dodge for his outstanding and dedicated service to our company.
 
Congratulations Stuart, from your WMTC family!

MAMMA MIA! We’ve Left The Island

What an absolute treat MAMMA MIA! was as our return from covid production, no one could have imagined the need, the absolute devotion of our audiences to support our return and by doing so making MAMMA MIA! our highest selling / most attended production in history. We thank each and every person who attended and are truly, truly, humbled. 

Throughout the season we shared many photos of the production, it looked great don’t you think? But not stopping there, we must and always acknowledge the team you don’t see in these photos, our rocking band and our many company volunteers that make costumes, build and dress our set, create props (if only you knew what they were made of), push the set around the stage, keep us lit, heard and keep a rowdy cast in order. WE THANK YOU! 

To say goodbye to the island we present our final shots, here is our production team with our cast!

WMTC’s MAMMA MIA! The Musical played 14 performances between the 13th May and 4th June 2022 @ Williamstown’s Centenary Theatre 💜💙🇬🇷💙💜

Red Hot & Cole celebrates the life of one of the great songwriting masters of this century, Cole Porter. This production traces Cole’s career from Indiana to the world stages of New York, London, Paris and Venice, through his marriage, his friendships with the greats of his age and the tragic riding accident that crippled him in mid-career, physically, but not artistically. 

Red Hot & Cole bubbles with songs that have become international standards, from such classic shows and movies as “Anything Goes,” “Kiss Me Kate,” “High Society” and “Can-Can” among others. The show features over 25 Cole Porter standards, including “Night And Day”, “I Love Paris”, “Anything Goes”, “Let’s Do It”, “Miss Otis Regrets”, “Just One Of Those Things”, “In The Still Of The Night” and “My Heart Belongs To Daddy”.

A scintillating mixture of biography and song, Red Hot & Cole celebrates the great American songwriter who brought style, elegance and sophistication to the stages and soundstages of Broadway and Hollywood, delighting the world with his devilishly clever rhymes, fresh and unexpected melodies and sassy, sexy sensibility.

It’s a champagne tribute to a glittering age gone by, and the man and talent who was Cole Porter.
