Welcome to Worthing Musical Theatre Company! The company (under its original name
'Worthing Light Opera Company'
) was founded by its Chairman David Turner in 1972.

Our first musical Ivor Novello's 'Glamorous Night' was performed at the Pavilion Theatre on Worthing Pier
in June 1973. Since that time the amateur dramatics company has flourished, undertaking new and challenging shows
such as Bad Girls, Honk!, Acorn Antiques and Sweeney Todd, mixing these with more well-known and much-loved musicals such as South Pacific, Fiddler on the Roof, My Fair Lady, Carousel, Oklahoma, Gilbert & Sullivan
, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, Summer Holiday and most recently Legally Blonde The Musical

During its 40th Anniversary year in 2012, the company decided to look at a rebrand and a new image to move with
the times and to take it forward into the next 40 years. Worthing Musical Theatre Company was therefore
created to better reflect the wide and diverse range of shows it was now performing. Everything but the
name remains the same however, in particular the quality of shows we produce on a regular basis.

Worthing Musical Theatre Company is a Registered Charity, Number 116 054

Poster for Footloose the musical



Worthing Musical Theatre Company proudly presents Footloose.

Based on the popular movie Footloose, this fast paced musical is about youth, rebellion and romance.

City boy Ren thinks his life is over when he is forced to move to Bomont, an American rural backwater but things are far worse than he imagined as the town bans dancing. It isn't long before Ren can't resist breaking the rules and he is not alone.

Kick off your Sunday shoes to the 80s Classic hits Holding out for a Hero, Lets hear it for the Boy and Footloose.
