Main Street Theatre Company

Main Street Theatre Company was founded in 1976 as the "Kibworth Community Centre Drama Group" based in what is now 'The Kibworth Academy'. Our first production was a play called "Best Laid Schemes" and was performed in March/April of 1977. Some of the original members are still active today. Show highlights over the years have included "Oh What a Lovely War" (1978), "Cinderella" (1979), "The Pyjama Game" (1980), "Sweeney Todd" (1983), "Oliver!" (1990) and "Dracula Spectacular" (1991). Our final production at Kibworth was "When We Are Married" in 1993.

However, in 1993 the group was forced to move from Kibworth due to the closure and redevelopment of the drama studio. A new home was found at the village hall on Main Street in Great Glen and the group became the "Main Street Theatre Company" (MSTC) where we have been ever since. The opening production was the musical "Oklahoma!".

Since then, we have continued to thrive, rehearsing each Wednesday and Thursday evening from 7.30 until 10.00 pm. If you take a look at our website, you will see the group has continued to perform a wide variety of shows that will appeal to both our audience and our members e.g. Fawlty Towers, Ali Baba, Little Shop of Horrors, Sweet Charity, Murdered to Death, variety shows and much much more.

We welcome anyone interested in any aspect of the theatre, i.e. acting, directing, sound, lighting, set design and backstage work as well as front of house work and publicity. We believe that we have established the group as one of the most ‘professional' amateur dramatic groups in the local Harborough District. It's not all work though, we still find time to get together every now and then for a good knees up.
