Broxbourne Theatre Company
presents two shows each year at the Spotlight Theatre (formerly Broxbourne Civic Hall) in Hoddesdon. Usually
these are a pantomime soon after Christmas and a
musical in May.
The 2017/18 season includes the pantomime Robin Hood and the Babes in the Wood in January and 9 to 5 the Musical in May
Our 2018/19 season will begin with the pantomime Cinderella in January and continue with the musical Annie in May 2019.
All shows are presented to the best possible standard, using top quality scenery
and costumes, as the photo album proves.
Shows have been presented in Broxbourne for more than 35 years, but the
history goes back to 1943 when
revues, pantomimes and
musicals were presented in Enfield under the former name of ETCEA.
Broxbourne Theatre Company is affiliated to the National Operatic and Dramatic
Association and in addition to the Best Musical and
Best Production for 2013 has also won NODA's Best Local
Pantomime award six times since the award was introduced in 2007. In the most recent round of awards,
Aladdin received the 2016 Best Pantomime award.
New members are always welcome (onstage or backstage).
As one of the Lea Valley's leading amateur theatre companies, we constantly need
members aged 16 or over to maintain our standards for the future. We start work on Robin Hood and the Babes in the Wood in
September 2017 and will be particularly looking for new men -- though
new ladies are welcome too. As a member you would be able to audition for
both principals and chorus parts. We'll again be welcoming new members in January for 9 to 5 the Musical.
We always need people to help
backstage or in the foyer and auditorium during
our performances in January and May each year. We also need help throughout the year to publicise the shows, so one way or another
there should be a place for you. Join us now and be
part of the team, or just come along to a performance and see us from the
We also have a Young Set which meets on
Wednesday evenings and has separate activities for those
aged 9 to 15.
