Musical Theatre Society

Poole and Parkstone Productions are very proud to be celebrating our Centenary year in 2019. From our humble beginnings in 1919 as Parkstone Vocal and Instrumental Society, our membership has grown, and our programme has diversified but our aim has remained the same; to stage exciting and entertaining theatre for the local community whilst raising much needed funds for a variety of charities.

Typically we present a Musical Theatre production in May and a Concert in November, but some years we vary the format to keep things fresh. P&P Musicals is never afraid of trying something different which is one of the reasons we are able to retain such a vibrant, energetic and creative membership with a wide age-range. There is always room for more though, so if you would like to join us then please visit our new members page to find out how.

As well as our talented performers, we have many dedicated volunteers to help carry out the many jobs that are needed to keep the show on the road. The list is endless but a few of those jobs involve costume design and making, scenery construction and painting, acquiring of props, administration, stage management. If you would like to get involved then please contact us to find out how.

MTS rehearsals are held on Tuesday evenings at The Spire, High Street, Poole, Dorset, BH15 1DF, and also on some Thursday evenings and Sundays as necessary.

We perform at venues across the Dorset region including The Lighthouse, Poole; The Regent Centre, Christchurch; and The Barrington Theatre, Ferndown.
