BMTC have been performing for over 60 years.
They were affiliated to Cadburys and their venue was the 750 seat concert hall in the heart of Cadburys.
Many employees from Cadburys have treaded the boards at the concert hall, and shows such as The Sound of Music, Fiddler on the Roof, Hello Dolly were successfully staged there.
Over the years Cadburys decided that the concert hall could no longer be used for performances by the BMTC, and with regret, our last production was Anything Goes in 2000.
We moved to The OLD Rep in Station Street in Birmingham City Centre for our London to New York show in 2001, followed by South Pacific in 2002 and our last production, Cabaret at the Old Rep in 2003.
Due to increased audience sizes and facilities offered by the Crescent Theatre we moved to this venue in Sheepcote Street for our sell out production of Carousel in February 2004.

Enville Street Dramatic Society was founded in 1947 as the social arm of Enville Street Methodist Church in West Street, Stourbridge.
The first play, Forced Landing, was presented in 1948 and to date has presented 130 plays - a mixture of drama, comedies and thrillers.
Since 2005, the society has presented its plays at St Thomas' Church Hall, Market Street, Stourbridge, due to the closure of Enville Street Methodist Church.
Plays are put on in April and November of each year. Our most recent production was called Family Planning (April 12th to 15th 2011) Charlotte Jackson and Tom Dallaway played the young couple with some news to tell and Betty Banks excelled as bedridden Gran in Frank Vickery's comedy which was very well received by the audience.
We always welcome people wishing to join as 'acting' or 'non acting' members.
Even if you don't want to act we also need people to build sets, decorate them, help with props, sound, lighting, prompting, publicising and catering during the show week. You can develop your skills in all of these areas and meet new people. Even just coming along to watch a rehearsal is helpful to the actors who need the experience of performing in front of an audience.
There are also social events that take place throughout the year. Past events include Murder Mystery nights, barn dances, meals, discos, dinner dances, quizzes, skittle nights, video nights and theatre trips. There are a mix of different events throughout the year.

Knowle Musical Society - KMS (previously Knowle Operatic Society) is an established and successful amateur group presenting one main production a year in the theatre of Solihull Arts Complex.
Founded in January 1962 it was called Knowle Musical and Operatic Society, but later changed to Knowle Operatic Society. Now having gone a full circle, Musical is again in the title as that is what it is.
For several years KMS presented the operattas of Gilbert & Sullivan but moved on to presenting classic musicals and in recent years has presented the very successful Solihull premiers of 'Titanic', 'The Scarlet Pimpernel', 'Beauty and the Beast' and in 2013 'The Sound of Music' which was a complete sell out.
We are always looking for new members to join our wonderful group. It's not all about treading the boards, but there is a lot of background work which is essential to a good show, such as stage crew, wardrobe, front of house, props to name but a few.
