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 1166054


The last 20 months have been challenging for everyone across the UK. The whole theatre industry has been in turmoil and we haven’t known when we would be able to be involved in live theatre production again. The risks remain for us during the coming winter period, given there is no insurance available that will cover us for COVID related issues, unless the country goes back into full lockdown. As a Charity we have to consider and minimise the risk of our company finances.

So we are thrilled to announce that we will be returning to The Pavilion Theatre in September 2022 with




22nd - 24th SEPTEMBER 2022

Tickets will be on sale in early 2022. More details will follow in the next few months.
A big thank you to Friends of the company and our audiences for your continued support, many of whom who donated the cost of their tickets for our cancelled March 2020 show. We look forward to welcoming you all back next year.


New member auditions are taking place. We would love it if we could encourage more men to join us, and the wider diverse community of Worthing, so don’t be shy, it could be your year to try something new!
We’d love to hear from you. Just drop us a line by e-mailing
