With Founders Park closed, Nelson Musical Theatre have made the heartbreaking decision to *cancel the first week of 'A Night on Broadway'. Due to slips and flooding we are currently unable to access the theatre, and we have to consider the safety of our cast and patrons.

We hope that the show can go ahead *next week - our cast, band, and crew are so ready to share this show with you all ✨

Add to the magic of the occasion

As many of you know we have been hit hard by Covid restrictions. They have impacted us financially, and have led to the cancellation of shows. The effect this had had on our members is huge.

With the traffic light system coming into effect this week, we have made the decision to become a vaccinated building. Unfortunately, any other decision would see us unable to operate and wouldn't be a viable option. Our apologies to those of you who are choosing not to get vaccinated, we hope to see you all again very soon.

To those who are planning to visit us after 11:59 on December 2nd please

MP Cancelled

Cancellation Notice.

Due to the current covid lockdown situation, Nelson Musical Theatre regretfully announces the cancellation of our 2021 season of Mary Poppins.

Sometimes the wind changes and things end unexpectedly, in that case, we have to put on a brave face and spit spot onto the next thing.

We advise you all to stay home, stay safe and take a spoonful of sugar.
