Like all other performing groups, both amateur and professional, we are very much restricted as to what we can do in terms of rehearsing and performing. For the time being, we are postponing our performances until we are given the go ahead to rehearse again. Whilst we miss being together and performing, we all fully support our national effort towards getting rid of this virus.
We'd like to thank our wonderful NHS and all front line workers for their continued efforts, particularly those who are also part of our BMT family, whether you be a performing member, a backstage member or an audience member.
We can't wait to get back to what we really love, but until then, we are sending all our love and support to those who need it.
BMT & BJM
We have an interesting history... Belper Musical Theatre was founded in 1975 by local residents who shared a love of amateur theatre, but who did not want to have to travel all the way to Derby to rehearse and perform. So, we were established then and have been growing stronger year on year.
A later, but incredibly important addition are our fabulous 'juniors'. These gifted young performers are the future of BMT and many of them have come through the ranks and have even taken on managing BJMT themselves.
We are immensely proud of our BMT family!
