Jack and the Beanstalk

Bring the family to an afternoon or evening of fun and laughter. Meet our larger than life Giant, and the "beanies", our talented kiddies chorus, all mixed together with a bit of theatre magic!

The Addams Family

The Addams Family was a huge artistic success for the society, delighting audiences and attracting the most wonderful feedback ever.
The new and previous members of our society fit in beautifully and excelled in their roles. The lack of tiered seating reduced our capacity somewhat, however the KMTC team produced an excellent, entertaining, funny and musically special show.

All Together Now!

Intended to welcome performers back to the stage, audiences back to the theatre, and societies to work together, global theatrical rights company MTI (Music Theatre International) developed a musical compilation for us to perform. Many of the numbers are from shows that have not even been released to amateur groups, so this was a wonderful opportunity to reopen the theatre doors. ALL TOGETHER NOW! was performed at the Keighley Playhouse, on Friday November 12th, and two performances on Sat November 13th 2021.

2020 Cinderella

KMTC Once again presented the greatest pantomime of them all - Cinderella, once again delighting sell-out audiences.

2019 Oliver!

We took you back to the streets of Victorian England to meet orphan boy Oliver.  Neglected, he escapes to London where he “Considers himself at home” with a gang of pickpockets and thieves. Our production of Oliver delighted our full audiences in October 2019.

2019 Aladdin

Our 2019 Pantomime was the wonderful, magical Aladdin. A fresh look at the traditional with up to date music and comedy, and an amazing flying carpet!

2018 Hairspray

The 2018 musical Hairspray was an amazing success. Our talented cast produced the most infectious energy that spilled out to our audience each night.

2018 Babes in the Wood

Our 2018 annual family pantomime was Babes in the Wood.  Dame Penelope and Muddles were successfull in their adventures with Maid Marion and Robin Hood to rescue the babes from a fate worse than the Sheriff of Nottingham.

2017 My Fair Lady

Our 2017 musical was the popular My Fair Lady. Based on George Bernard Shaw's classic play Pygmalion, tells the familiar story of Eliza Doolittle, a Covent Garden flower seller who, inspired by phonetician Henry Higgins’ public boast that he could change her social status by teaching her how to speak correctly, turns up at his door asking for lessons in order to fulfil her dream of working in a flower shop. However, Eliza eventually succeeds so well that she outgrows her lowly ambitions, and manages to become an indispensable part of Higgins' life.

2016 Musical - Grease!

Previously only available to school groups, we were one of the first groups to be performing the full adult version of this musical in October 2016, including all your favourite songs from the Movie!
The musical is set in 1959 at fictional Rydell High School and follows ten working-class teenagers as they navigate the complexities of peer pressure, politics, personal core values, and love.

2013 Musical

Based on the novel by Mary Hayley Bell and subsequent Richard Attenborough-produced film, Whistle Down the Wind follows the fortunes of a fugitive caught between the prejudice of adults and the innocence of the young.

2011 Footloose

Based on the hit 80s movie (which launched the careers of Kevin Bacon, Sarah Jessica Parker and Jon Lithgow), FOOTLOOSE has become a stage musical phenomenon. From Broadway to the West End and touring across the UK, and now here in Keighley, there is just no stopping the music.

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat

We are delighted to announce that despite three attempts to stage this show (cancelled due to Covid), and then it was unavailable for 2022, we will at last be producing “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” in October 2023.

Sha la la Joseph, you’re doing fine! You and your dreamcoat ahead of your time!

This is one of the most enduring shows of all time – Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is a reimagining of the Biblical story of Joseph, his father Jacob, eleven brothers and the coat of many colours. In this show for all ages, we hear the story of a boy, one of twelve brothers, growing up with jealousy, betrayal, despair, but eventually finding his fate and fortune. Prepare to be moved to tears and laughter with this beautiful story.


The magical musical is full of catchy songs in a variety of styles, from a parody of French ballads (“Those Canaan Days”), to country-western (“One More Angel in Heaven”) and calypso (“Benjamin Calypso”), along with the unforgettable classics “Any Dream Will Do” and “Close Every Door.”

We are also delighted to have selected an excellent cast (see below) who will faithfully reproduce this unmissable technicoloured show written by the amazing Musical duo – Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice.

We expect this show to sell out, so book soon!!

Bookings now open.
