Shrewsbury Musical Theatre Company is Shropshire’s longest established musical theatre group. SMTC draws on the very best local talent and employs hugely experienced professional creative teams to bring the world’s top musicals to Shrewsbury audiences. With over 100 members based around the county, SMTC is a well-known company with a professional outlook and a reputation for producing spectacular shows. We have been in existence for almost 100 years, providing entertainment and enjoyment for Shropshire audiences and an outlet for the creative talents and interests of our members. Many of our members have gone on to perform professionally in The West End and beyond.

Originally known as Shrewsbury Amateur Operatic Society (SAOS), we changed our name in 2019 in direct response to comments from our audiences who insist that the quality of our productions is far from amateur. The SMTC logo reflects the loop of the River Severn and the fact that we’re proud to perform at the magnificent Theatre Severn.
