Newbury Musical Theatre Society

We are an amateur musical theatre group, based in the Newbury, Berkshire area, performing musicals, operetta and concerts.

We are members of NODA, the National Operatic and Dramatic Association, and our main productions are staged at the Newbury Corn Exchange. Originally formed in 1922, until late 2012 we were known as Newbury Operatic Society.

If you are interested in musical theatre, please free free to have a look around our site and get a feel for what we do. If you are interested in taking part, whether on-stage or backstage, we would love to hear from you.


Newbury Nomads

Newbury Nomads is a dramatic arts group located in Newbury, Berkshire. The group presents one major musical show a year in the Corn Exchange Newbury and a Spring Concert.

The choice of show is diverse – see our list of past productions. Although the membership covers all age ranges, the society is very young at heart and is eager to encourage fresh and new ideas.

Throughout the year there are many social and fundraising events; barbecues, treasure hunts, skittle evenings, carol singing and even an annual dinner dance!
