About Crowthorne Musical Players
A little introduction
CMP was formed in 1950 by members of the Parish Church and since that time has performed many musical
shows at various venues. Early performances were concerts and revues in local halls, progressing to pantomimes and light opera. Since the 1970s the society has produced at least one major Broadway or West End musical every year. Originally these were staged at Edgbarrow School, but since 1989 have been performed in the Wilde Theatre at South Hill Park.
Recent productions have included Witches of Eastwick, Sister Act, Made in Dagenham, and 9 to 5 The Musical.
The society meets for rehearsals at 8pm Monday and Thursday evenings at the Crowthorne Parish Hall on Heath Hill Road. As well as the ‘big musical’ and our Autumn Show, we also perform a Christmas Carol Concert in either the Parish Hall or Morgan Centre. We pride ourselves on being a very friendly society and, besides the serious business of performing; we also have social events like Race Nights and an annual Quiz evening.
CMP became a registered charity in December 2010. Registration number: 1139345
CMP is affiliated to the National Operatic and Dramatic Association
We have a core group of very committed volunteers and professionals working for us in various roles.
