PETERSFIELD THEATRE GROUP

We were formed in 2008 from the merger of the Petersfield Operatic society and Petersfield Hi lights and now perform two full-scale musical shows every year, in June and November at the Town/Festival Hall in Petersfield.

We sing, dance, act, build and paint our own scenery and put on shows to a surprisingly high standard. We rehearse Monday and Wednesday evenings and are always on the lookout for new members whether on-stage or off. We invite alternating high quality directing teams who bring tremendous energy and variety to the shows that we stage.

Our first production in May 2009, Guys and Dolls, received a very warm reception from both the audience and the critics. We followed this in the November with A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum, bringing the dusty streets of ancient Rome to Petersfield.

In May 2010 we staged a large production of The Merry Widow which was highly popular and very well received. Little Shop of Horrors in November 2010 was directed by some of our talented members and proved to be a huge hit with audiences of all ages, we were also delighted to welcome local musicians ‘The Shrubs’ as our in-house band.

In November 2018 we celebrated our tenth anniversary with SHOWTIME. This is an original musical variety show written for PTG by PTG. It featured performances from musicals of PTG past as well as highlighting some of our favourite musicals that we have not had the chance to perform in full.

 

Our most recent performance was the spectacular CHICAGO in November 2019 which challenged our members to a number of Fosse style dance numbers.

Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, we have been unable to perform our anticipated productions of MADE IN DAGENHAM and THE ADDAMS FAMILY.

These musicals have been put on hold a number of times throughout 2020 and 2021 but never fear, they have both been re-scheduled for our 2022 programme with many opportunities to still get involved.
