Broxbourne Theatre Company
Registered Charity No. 1181847
is one of the Lea Valley's leading amateur theatre companies. It
presents two shows each year at the Spotlight Theatre (formerly Broxbourne Civic Hall) in Hoddesdon.
these are a pantomime soon after Christmas and a
Musical in May.
Coronavirus precautions closed the Spotlight theatre in 2020 and prevented us from presenting The Sound of Music as intended, but it will be reopening in March 2022 and we are resurrecting our plans to present The Sound of Music in May 2022.This should be followed by a tradidional pantomime in January 2023, to be announced later in 2022.
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 40 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 for 2013 and 2015 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).
We constantly need
members aged 16 or over to maintain our standards for the future. We start work on Puss In Boots in
September 2019 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 The Sound of Music.
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.
