The Northampton Musical Theatre Company produces one musical theatre show and one concert each year, aiming to be of the highest NODA award-winning standard, to entertain Northampton audiences.

We have been proudly performing since 1898 to Northampton audiences; in 2011 the company changed its name from NAOC to NMTC. We decided that the name ‘Northampton Amateur Operatic Company’ no longer described who we are and what we do. Our last show as NAOC was ‘Sweet Charity’.

We have a fantastic youth society who have been performing since 2017 producing 1 show a year. We have seen some of their alumni go on to become members of our adult company. Our youth members love being part of the NMTC family and regular come back to us year after year.

Our singers meet once a week and welcome new members at regular intervals throughout the year. They are available for bookings and are always looking for an opportunity to sing and perform the music we love.


Based on the the 1980’s big screen hit  – Footloose the musical, is the next production that we will be rehearsing, coming to the Derngate Theatre, Northampton between Tuesday 29 October – Saturday 2nd November 2024 at 7.30pm with an additional matinee performance on the Saturday at 2.30pm.

Ren McCormack a teenage city boy is forced to move to Bomont –  a small rural town in America where he learns rock-n-roll and dancing have both been banned by the local preacher. Ren then decides to try and change this and works to get the whole town up on its feet!

This full of energy musical packed with popular songs including “Holding Out For A Hero,” “Let’s Hear It For The Boy” along with the title track Footloose  will get you wanting to be up on your feet dancing.
